Salon Case Study


La Beaute, an elegant chain of two hair salons nestled in the heart of Swindon and Wichelstowe, is renowned for its luxurious hair treatments. The salons specialise in vivid colours and balayage, offering their clients a transformative experience with each visit. Alongside their expert services, La Beaute also provides an array of specialist products and retail items, including vouchers, to enhance their clients’ hair care routine.


The Challenge

The owner of La Beaute faced a common yet formidable challenge: balancing the day-to-day operations of the salon while managing its social media presence. With a busy schedule that included attending to her own clients, the owner found it increasingly difficult to dedicate time and effort to growing their online audience. Recognising the potential of social media to attract new clients and build a stronger brand presence, La Beaute reached out to me for assistance.


Strategy and Execution

Our primary goal was to expand La Beaute’s social media reach and engagement, with a particular focus on Instagram, a platform well-suited for showcasing the visual artistry of hair styling. Here’s how we tackled the challenge:


Content Creation:

  • Developed engaging and ‘scroll-stopping’ content that highlighted the salon’s expertise in vivid colours and balayage.
  • Created posts that featured stunning before-and-after transformations, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and client testimonials.
  • Utilised high-quality images and videos to captivate the audience’s attention and encourage interaction.

Educational Posts:

  • Produced informative content that educated followers on how to manage their hair and maintain their colour between salon visits.
  • Shared expert tips and tricks, positioning La Beaute as a trusted authority in hair care.

Promotion of Offers:

  • Leveraged organic content to promote special offers and seasonal discounts, enticing followers to book appointments.
  • Highlighted the benefits of using La Beaute’s specialist products available for retail.



Over the course of just three months, La Beaute’s social media presence experienced significant growth:

  • Audience Growth: Increased by an impressive 138.1%, drawing in a substantial number of potential clients.
  • Organic Post Reach: Expanded by 36%, ensuring that more people were seeing and engaging with the salon’s content.
  • Engagement Rates: Soared by 72.1%, indicating a highly engaged and interested audience.
  • Booking Increases: The ultimate measure of success, salon bookings saw a notable rise, translating social media efforts into tangible business growth.


La Beaute’s journey to social media success shows the importance of a well-executed strategy tailored to the unique strengths of a business. By focusing on visually compelling content, educational posts, and strategic promotions, we were able to significantly enhance La Beaute’s online presence and drive real-world results.
