If you're a hairdresser that is looking to go out on their own, it can be hard to figure out exactly how to do that. Renting your own space can be expensive, and unless you have a client list who is ready to see you at your new space it can be tricky to find enough new customers to make it worth your while. Working for somebody else has its own issues, and depending on their management style it can either be an exercise in mentorship or a private road to another unsatisfactory work environment.
Luckily, there's a third option: rent your own hair salon space and do with it what you wish. Salons currently account for 95% of the U.S. hair market, while barbershops (with services tailored to men) account for only 5% of the market. This means that this growing field now has a way for you to start as your own boss, grow your business, and practice your craft at a reasonable price range. They're called salon suites, and once you see all the benefits to them you'll want to sign up!
Be in Control of Your Customer's Experience
When you're the boss of your own salon suite, you have the privilege of having complete control of your customer's experience. Instead of having to abide by someone else's rules, listen to music that doesn't suit your tastes, or work with subpar tools, you can create the ultimate customer experience that will "wow" your customers and make sure that they will tell their friends about it and leave you five-star reviews on the appropriate platforms. By being in complete control of your customer's experience, you'll also have the incentive to make things nice, be efficient, and continually improve your skills to earn more money. By being in control of the customer experience and your business, you'll be more in control of your own life.
Get Niche Clientele
By taking advantage of salon suites for rent and their independent business model, you can attract niche clientele that may not have their needs met at other salons. If, for example, you really excel at dying hair in vibrant colors and then styling it, you can offer this as a unique service that may be difficult to find at more "mainstream salons" with conventional hairdressers. By attracting niche clientele, you can also make sure that you cultivate personal and intimate relationships with your customers so that they keep coming back to see you for their individual and unique needs. You sell yourself based on the fact that you are the experts with their hairstyles and needs that no one else can offer!
Keep All the Profits
Of course when you rent salon suites there are expenses, but at the end of the day, if you're responsible with your money you get to keep all of the profits afterward. Instead of having to give a percentage to the owner or someone else in a salon you work in, the profits stay in your pocket and are yours to do with as you see fit. Investing in new equipment, customer experience, or simply having more spending money can all be part of the plan when you're allowed to keep all that you earn.
One Call Can Solve Your Problem
So there you have it: at the end of the day, renting salon suites can be both a viable solution to your problems of having a space for your business while not taking on an incredible amount of risk. Not only do salon suites still have all the tools that are required for you to cut people's hair without skimping on luxuries, but they provide it in a compact space that is affordable to you and may even come with more favorable terms. However, you'll have to be disciplined as your own boss and make sure that any employees you hire to help you are compliant with the laws and regulations of your area. But with a little hard work and some elbow grease, this shouldn't be a problem.
