Music Makeover Salons 

Do you run a hair or beauty salon and have a passion for music? Enter our competition to win £5,000 worth of equipment...

For the third year running, we are giving your salon or barbershop the chance to win £5,000 worth of music equipment, plus invaluable guidance from music experts and an exclusive launch event featuring performances from PRS for Music members. Enter from Monday 9 January 2017. Click here to watch last year's winning entries.

PRS for Music devised the Music Makeover campaign for salons to showcase and raise awareness of how good music can impact businesses. The quality of the sound system itself, the acoustics, music choice and volume all impact both your customers’ and staff experience.


Celebrating the value of music in hair and beauty salons, PRS for Music is also offering a bespoke music consultation from a leading music and technology expert advising them on the best use of music in their salon and a launch event to celebrate and promote their win featuring live music from PRS for Music members alongside the £5,000 prize.
