Meet Ryan, the Owner of B-Bombshell Salon.

B-Bombshell Salon is a fun, imaginative space aimed at offering a unique, high quality, services for geeks, by geeks - it’s where geeks go to feel chic!
Ryan was inspired to start B-Bombshell Salon, to provide a safe space for people to come where they wouldn’t feel judged and would be able to have awesome hair and be surrounded by awesome people. 


But running a salon comes with unique challenges. Including figuring out how to manage his payroll when salon artists’ wages vary between hourly rates and commissions.  This made things challenging to manage as an owner.


BBomb Salon, Push Operations

Life before using the Push system.

As Ryan began handling his own payroll for B-Bombshell Salon, he was almost immediately faced with challenges in shifting between hourly rates and commission rates for his staff. Ryan would have to go, line by line, editing every employee’s hours and commission for each payroll.


“Even with QuickBooks, if you put in the hours, it would automatically just give them whatever their hourly rate is. And then if you put in commission, it wouldn't give the hours… It was one or the other. So, you gave them the commission, but then it said that they didn't work in the hours.



Taking care of business.


With Push, Ryan can now easily upload hourly rates and commissions for each employee in one place. As a result, Ryan can now process each pay period in roughly one hour for his entire team.


“My favorite thing is being able to enter the hours and enter a commission rate. It's really, really simple, and that makes it a lot easier for me, as a boss, to be able to put all that in.”

It’s the things you can’t measure.

For Ryan, the best part of the platform is knowing that everything can be managed from one place. Push allows Ryan to run his business the way he wants to while still staying on top of his day-to-day tasks, including bookkeeping and payroll, in an organized manner.



Now that Ryan has more time, he can get back to doing the things that he loves - like watching movies, traveling, and grabbing a great brunch. 


Crushing business goals.

Ryan loves Push because it enables him to spend less time on payroll and pick it up throughout the week as he is able.

He’s saved over 10 hours per month and invested that back into the business, and spent more time on the floor with his staff. With the help of Push, Ryan can ensure that his dream of creating a warm and inviting space in his salon is a reality.
