18/8 Fine Men’s Salons are hair care and grooming centers for men, a reinvention of the barber shop, providing hair and grooming services for men in a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere geared toward the specific needs of men. 18/8 stylists provide advice and service in a wide variety of treatments, including haircuts, hair coloring, MANicures, face treatments, scalp treatments and massage, all in semi-private stations. 18/8 stylists are experts in their fields of men’s care and grooming.

We are meeting with Scott Griffith, the founder and owner of 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon, Scott has grown the brand to more than 750 salons. It has a system-wide revenue of more than $25 million. Men who enter 18/8 are treated special. They are greeting the moment they come through the door by a salon coordinator who offers them a drink. They are then guided to a stylist’s booth or to private or semi-private rooms, depending on services requested. The 18/8 business model is a rarity in men’s grooming, a shop that treats men specially and values their specific needs. The company seeks franchisees to become part of the national brand of fine mens’ salons; business entrepreneurs who want to bring out the best in men. The 18/8 business model is a cut far above other men’s grooming shops, catering to the discerning, successful man who wants to look and feel his best in order to perform his best. 18/8 Fine Men’s Salons open stores in districts and locations that assure a high-class clientele and experienced, knowledgeable stylists.

18/8 Fine Men’s Salons was founded by Ron Love, who serves as company president, and W. Scott Griffiths, CEO. Love began his hairstyling career in London’s Mayfair district at age 15, and had many years of hairstyling experience before building and expanding 18/8. Griffiths has a long career of building companies and successful brands, such as 18/8.
