The story behind Snipps Salon

Snipps Salon was begun in 1992 by Anne and Sally Richardson as a mainly rural based hair care business. The business grew rapidly in the 90's and the income generated enabled Snipps to take full benefit of the opportunities that this created.

In 1998 the company diversified into nail treatments etc, to focus wholly on all aspects of the beauty industry. This move was extremely positive and the company experienced major expansion with the securing of several major hair care contracts.

Further company expansion was generated by the purchase of Hawera Haircare in late 2003. The acquisition of Carterton Beauty in 2007 has widened the company's activities and doubled its capacity.

Snipps Salon now operates a number of salons making it one of the largest independent operators in the industry.
