CoolBlades: Your Trusted Trader for Hair and Beauty Supplies


Salon Gold customers now have access to an exclusive 10% discount* with Coolblades Ltd. The company offers a wide choice of hair and beauty products, equipment and services all dedicated to supporting hair and beauty businesses. Coolblades is owned and run by Brian and Julie Bannister. Over the last 22 years this power couple has built a reputation for customer care that has attracted over 8,500 positive Trustpilot reviews with an overall star rating of 4.9. Their knowledge and expertise is based in real world hair and beauty industry experience and it’s that shared understanding that has helped them select a range of brands and products to meet every budget, business type and need.

Julie Bannister began hairdressing straight out of school, working her way up through the ranks of senior hairdresser to manager and eventually salon owner. Once children came along, Julie joined her husband Brian in creating a fresh, service led wholesaler/supplier business that truly put the professional first. Brian says “It was clear that suppliers were generally poor and the normal cash and carry companies employed people that had scant industry knowledge. We began selling Joewell, Tondeo and Jaguar scissors, hence Coolblades was born.” In no time the growing company added other brands and extended the business with their very own KOBE brand. A clear point of differentiation was offering the servicing and maintenance of scissors, clippers, climazones and dryers; some of which Coolblades still offers over two decades later. Julie says “Our thorough knowledge of hair and beauty allows us to truly understand the demands and pressures salon owners are under…our main focus has always been equipment choice, great honest advice and top-level customer service.”

In 2008 Coolblades opened their first store and in more recent years has built an easy-to-use online store that offers free next-day delivery**. The key changes in the industry in recent years has been in colour, and men’s styling/barbering. Many salons now offer more than one colour range to service their customers, giving rise to more choice and creativity. The massive boom in barbering and men’s styling has seen Coolblades build a huge and loyal client base in the sector. What hasn’t changed is Julie and Brian’s passion and love for the industry. “We really enjoy helping and serving customers. Obviously through recent national issues there have been some challenging periods but our dedicated team at Coolblades has worked tirelessly to assist our customers and ensure through often difficult supply chain issues, that the customer is never left waiting or wondering about where their order may be.”
