Just Cuts writes to PM to thank him for JobKeeper
Just Cuts has written to Prime Minister Scott Morrison to thank him for the financial lifeline of JobKeeper and to support his commitment to ongoing support for business beyond the planned September deadline.
Just Cuts is headquartered in the Prime Minister’s electorate of Cook. The JUSTICE waterhouse is also located in the electorate and was opened by Mr Morrison in May 2017.
Quotes attributable to Just Cuts CEO Amber Manning
“We wrote to the Prime Minister on behalf of the 190 Just Cuts salons across Australia, our team, their 3000 hairdressers and the 100,000 Clients who visit our salons every week to say thank you.”
“We wanted him to know, especially with everything going on at the moment, that JobKeeper meant our independently owned and operated businesses were able to keep their teams together and get back to business when it was safe to do so.”
“JobKeeper meant that we were able to keep our Academy Team on at our head office in Cronulla and keep all of our JUSTICE warehouse team in Caringbah employed.
“For our network and for many of our Salon Owners this meant their businesses and ours have been able to weather the COVID storm. We welcome your comments of recent days, especially given the Victorian situation, that support will continue to be provided beyond September. We welcome that and we look forward to hearing details of that.”

More about Just Cuts
Just Cuts is an Australian hairdressing franchise that bridges the gap between a barber and a high end hair salon. With salons in every state of Australia, on both the North and South islands New Zealand and the United Kingdom, it is the largest hairdressing company in the Southern Hemisphere. Based on a fixed price, no appointment system, Just Cuts offers clients affordable haircuts from fully qualified hairdressers and performs over 100,000 Style Cut cuts per week across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Celebrating 30 years in 2020, Just Cuts was the brainchild of Denis McFadden, who turned a simple idea into a business concept that would change the hairdressing industry forever. McFadden ran his first ever “no appointment, $6 Style Cut” promotion at his humble Sydney salon, receiving an outstanding response from clients. It was on this basic fixed price initiative that the idea of Just Cuts was born. The following year, the inaugural Just Cuts salon opened its door to the public. And in 1990, the first Just Cuts franchise opened in the suburb of Engadine, in the south of Sydney, New South Wales. Our brand has continued to expand ever since, with over 220 locations across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
In 2013, Just Cuts launched JUSTICE Professional – a range of salon quality haircare and styling products available exclusively in all our salons at a competitive, affordable price. The JUSTICE Professional line has something for everyone, including everyday shampoos and conditioners, anti-dandruff and dry scalp treatments, toning products, nourishing leave-in treatments and a range of hair styling waxes and sprays.
