The reality of being a hair salon employee
If you are an employee at one of the thousands of hair salons/beauty salon operations across the United States, the reality is that you work for commissions, and those commissions are usually around 40%, which is the industry standard. That means that for every dollar you earn at the hair salon, you keep forty cents, while the owner of that hair salon pockets sixty cents.
We are not here to argue the fairness of this arrangement. Without a doubt, the owner of the hair salon has invested tens-of-thousands of dollars into that business, so it is only logical that they would keep the bulk of the profits. Still, it is your ability, and the ability of all employees in hair salons, which actually draws in customers and maintains that customer base throughout the history of that hair salon. In other words, without the talent and professionalism of beauticians like you, no hair salon would stay in business very long.
Wouldn’t it be nice if that talent, and that professionalism, were paid an amount commiserate in value, something, say, more than 40%?
The reality of owning your own hair salon
Now, if you owned your own hair salon, a one-person enterprise with you as the sole proprietor, you would keep 100% of your profits . . . not forty cents on the dollar, not sixty cents on the dollar, but 100% of every dollar of profit would be yours.
Do the math. Dream up a scenario with a certain number of customers per week. Let’s say you see ten customers per day, or fifty per week. And let’s say, and we are lowballing here, the average “sale” is $50 per customer. That would mean total sales, for the week, of $2500. Deduct the expense of rent, which at Salon & Spa Galleria is as low as $50 per week, the cost of insurance, which will be in the $100 per week range, and you will be looking at a profit, for that week, of approximately $2350.
Now, multiply that weekly profit times fifty-two weeks.
The logical decision is a salon studio rental at Salon & Spa Galleria.
