Olivia Crighton is the Founder of Hackney-based Glasshouse Salon, a hair and beauty salon using only natural and organic products. After having recognized a gap in the market for organic hair care, Olivia’s business has gone from strength to strength, resulting in Glasshouse outgrowing its current salon space.
When looking for the funds to move to larger premises, Olivia was originally approved for a loan with a top tier lender. However, when she went to retrieve the funds they were no longer available. Nothing in her credit had changed, and the lender wasn’t willing to explain the change of heart.
Luckily, Olivia was introduced to Fleximize by her broker and they were able to lend her the £15,000 she needed to prepare for expansion and growth. The funds provided by Fleximize mean that Olivia can at least double the number of stylists on the salon floor, whilst also enjoying a bigger retail area and staff room.
To hear Olivia’s story, and find out how Fleximize helped, take a look at the video case study below.
