5 Tips to Get You Started on Your Own Beauty Salon

  • Have you ever dreamed of owning your very own beauty salon? Salons are about more than just appearances; they offer patrons a few hours of rest, relaxation and pampering in an increasingly hectic world. In many ways, beauty salons help people (particularly women) see the beauty that is already inside of them, and embrace it. Whether you want to specialize in hair, shape eyebrows, offer facials or give visitors a complete salon experience, there are a few things you should keep in mind before you get started. Here are five tips to guide you along.

    1- Have a definite vision. Before you take the first step toward opening your own salon, you need to have a clear vision in mind of what kind of establishment you're creating.  What kind of clientele are you hoping to attract? How will your salon look - retro and feminine, sleek and modern, straightforward and fuss-free? It may help to put all of these thoughts on paper so you don't lose track of your goals and ambitions.

    2-Consider your startup costs. A business of any kind requires a good deal of capital to get up and running, and beauty salons are no exception. If you don't already have money saved for your enterprise, you're going to need a small business loan. Whether you go through a bank or seek out private investors, it helps to know exactly how much capital you need - and how long you expect it to take for your salon to turn a profit.

    3- Decide who you want to hire. You're going to need employees for your salon, and it pays to start thinking about who you want to hire early on. Make these decisions now and you won't have any unpleasant surprises down the line.

    4- Create a unique marketing approach. Once your salon is up, running and fully staffed, the next step is to consider how you're going to bring in new customers - in other words, how you're going to market your salon. Print marketing is much more affordable, but depends largely on design and distribution for its effectiveness, requiring extra effort on your part. And don't forget about the Internet: Your website and social networking accounts are excellent ways to stay in touch with clients and reach out to new ones with ease.

    5- Enjoy the journey! Remember, you're opening a salon because you're passionate about what you do. Let your love for your work guide you and you're sure to succeed!
