A dad quit his banking job to pursue hairdressing now makes £650k a year
32 year old David O’Neal saw an opportunity to change career paths when he missed out on a job promotion at his bank. Wanting to pursue his dream of launching his own business, David left his £32k job to set up a salon for kids.
David’s salon offers kids the chance to play playstation games or watch cartoons whilst waiting for their turn for a trim, before getting to sit in mini motorcar chairs
“They can relax without their parents worrying that they will disturb other customers.” Says David when describing his salon
Currently in it’s third year of trading, David owns nine salons across the UK including Bristol, Leeds and Lecister, and plans to expand business by opening a sister company; a cafe with designated play areas for children.
David said: “Leaving a job and taking a risk can be scary, especially when you have young kids – my wife Kylie has been absolute rock. “
