Meet Ron Love

Meet Ron Love: Founder and President of 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons, Salon ŕeBelle and Griff’s. Love is no stranger to success, and has built an empire of salons spanning the entire United States.

“It was very important for us to partner up with a like-minded organization and company who had a vision for themselves,  as we had a vision for ourselves. Shortcuts really fit that need.

“We can cater to multiple markets separately using the same foundation quality, and level of customer service with Shortcuts.” 

– Ron Love, Owner,  18|8 Fine Men’s Salon


18|8 is a fine men’s salon, bringing quality, luxury pampering of a women’s salon, to men. Whether haircuts and shaving, or waxing, facial or nail treatments, 18|8 brings everything every man could ever need to the table, giving men everywhere the transformation they need to look, feel and perform their best.

“I’ve been working with Shortcuts for 11 years now, and I have been fortunate enough to be part of the process of its growth, and being a part of the new innovative ways to improve technology for not only the stylists, but our guests.”

“We use Shortcuts to keep track of things like which team member has the most rebookings or the most product sales for the week. Once a week I have a sit down with them one-on-one to see how they’re doing and whether we can push them even further.”
