Just Cuts New Plymouth Owner takes top 2020 business prizes
Just Cuts New Plymouth Owner, Laurie Broomhall, holding her Franchisee of the Year Award and Best Practice Award outside her Centre City salon
Laurie Broomhall of Just Cuts New Plymouth has taken out the top award at the NZ Just Cuts 2020 Franchise virtual award ceremony.
Laurie received both the prestigious Franchisee of the Year Award and the Best Practice Award.
The Centre City salon was also named in the top 10 for retail sales, with 28 Just Cuts salons in NZ.
A locked mystery box was sent to each owner prior to the evening, then during the virtual ceremony the winners were given the code to unlock their padlocked boxes.
“This award belongs to my team. All my stylists are fully qualified, highly experienced hairdressers who’ve worked so hard during a year like no other. I’m so proud of them,” said Laurie.
“I also have to thank the local community for their support of my small business. Since re-opening it’s been so busy I’m already looking for another Stylist.”
The win was bittersweet for Laurie, who not only navigated her small business through COVID-19 shutdowns and safety regulations in 2020, but also lost her husband of 40 years, Paul, to cancer.
“While Paul died in April this year during the COVID lockdown, I know he would’ve been proud of our win. Paul’s passing was a huge loss for our family & friends, but once we reopened the salon 7 days a week post lockdown I’ve just kept busy and carried on looking after my team and our clients.”
Laurie thanked Just Cuts for their ongoing support for her small business during 2020.
“Just Cuts New Zealand is such a great community to be part of. As Owners we’re not in competition – we support each other - it’s a great group.”
“The consistent communication, training and innovation has been vital to my success this year.”
“Our Just Cuts app gives clients the ability to check into the salon queue remotely and earn bonus points to spend in salon on our exclusive retail range of JUSTICE Professional hair care products.”
Laurie owns three Just Cuts salons – Just Cuts Wanganui in Trafalgar Square on Taupo Quay in Whanganui, Just Cuts Coastlands in Coastlands Shopping Mall in Paraparaumu on the Kapiti Coast and Just Cuts New Plymouth in Centre City Mall New Plymouth.

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.
