NHBF & Loop HR

The founder of Loop HR, Ian Egerton, was the President of the NHBF from 2019 to 2023. As a successful salon owner and past NHBF President, Ian gained a lot of insight into the inner workings of what is needed to run a salon well. 

Loop HR works alongside the NHBF in accordance with what is needed legally and in-practice as part of salon HR software and systems for a successful business. With Loop HR, salon owners no longer need to worry about whether their payroll is accurate or that their schedules are up-to-date and correct. Loop HR software has everything a salon owner needs, all easily accessible in one place.
