HOW DO I WORK OUT HOW MANY TOWELS I NEED
FOR MY HAIRDRESSING SALON?

As a general rule we suggest looking at your weekly client numbers and multiplying that by two. For example, 200 towels per week for 100 clients.

HOW CAN YOUR TOWELS SAVE ME MONEY?
Firstly, by not needing to wash towels, you immediately save on electricity, water, washing powder, machine maintenance and the labour cost of apprentice time in the laundry. If you are leasing your washing machine and dryer, the interest costs are very high. By eliminating these, imagine the savings and how cost effective this space becomes. Salons who use a laundry service say they are charged up to $1.20 per spa towel and 80 cents per hairdressing towel. Our towels will cut your laundry bill in half.

WHEN WILL MORE OF THE BIG TOWEL COMPANY PRODUCT RANGE BE AVAILABLE IN NEW ZEALAND?
We have commenced our New Zealand launch with the most commonly ordered item, the black hairdressing towel. We will shortly be placing orders for white spa towels and salon capes to extend the range on offer. These should be available for purchase by September 2013.

HOW DO I KNOW THE TOWELS ARE
REALLY ECO-FRIENDLY?

Carla Thompson,
Big Towel Company Ambassador

I have been using Big Towel Company disposable towels in my salon for two years now and just love the results.

They are very functional, they stack compactly by the basins, are super absorbent and my clients know they are receiving the best of service by having clean and hygienic towels every visit.

By eliminating the need of the in-salon laundry we have reduced our water and electricity use, gained extra space in the salon and improved staff utilisation on the floor.

It is one simple solution to improve the client experience, grow the profits and protect the environment. I am proud to be the NZ Ambassador for The Big Towel Company and welcome the fact I can now source this great eco-friendly product locally.
