About Salon Suppliers

It all began in January 1992, a concept thought up by Michelle and a friend, both of whom are qualified beauty therapists, and became what is known today as the incredibly successful Salon Suppliers. Michelle realised that in a busy salon, there was always something needed and someone from the staff had to waste valuable operating time to attend to the purchase and collection of goods or taking a machine to be repaired.

From the outset, the aim of the business was to supply everything from equipment and waxes right down to the ear buds and toilet paper, to collect machinery for repair, and to deliver it, aiming to keep the therapists at their business, generating revenue and not wasting precious time running around.

The business started with Michelle at the helm, taking orders and doing deliveries. Jenny became a partner and did the books, keeping an eye on the financial aspect of the business. As Salon Suppliers became busier, Jenny’s involvement became inevitable, and the business operation was based at Jenny’s house in Bryanston.

Ali, originally the gardener, was keen to join the team and was sent for driving lessons. He eventually became a full-time driver, taking an enormous amount of pressure off the rest of the team. Maureen joined in 2001, and it was obvious to the rest of the team how invaluable she would become, enjoying the challenges and meeting the customers. By 2001, the company had outgrown Jenny’s house and moved to new, more spacious premises.

Jenny and Maureen have both retired after many years of wonderful service from them.  They are both dearly missed.  Johanna has been with us since 2009 and has a great cheerful way about her with the customers.

Brian joined us in 2017, delivering and assisting where he can with queries from clients.  Sharon recently joined us in 2024 and has been getting to know our clients.

The large premises in Kyalami serves the company well and visitors can enjoy the ‘country feeling’ and the easy parking!
