Quotes attributable to Amber Manning, Just Cuts CEO
“Our thoughts are with all our family and friends in Victoria. While a return to stage 3 restrictions will inevitably impact our business and our people, we understand it is the right call to make given the circumstances.”
"While the Victorian Government has not included hairdressing on the list of non-essential businesses that must close within Metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire, we’re not taking any chances and remain vigilant.” Amber said. “We are taking every precaution possible to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of our stylists and clients.”
“We are incredibly grateful and buoyed by all the support we’ve seen since reopening, and we look forward to seeing a reduction in new COVID cases that will hopefully result from these new measures.”

More about Just Cuts
We are proud to be part of Just Cuts, 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.
