Beauty Salon Suite Vs Beauty Salon: What’s the Difference?

In this article, we will explain the difference between a beauty salon suite and a beauty salon, and how that difference may be very profitable to you.

We are Salon & Spa Galleria, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with twenty beauty salon suite rental locations. Call us at 972-691-7300 for more information, and to arrange for a tour of one of our salon suite rental locations.

And, now, it’s time for some clarification regarding these two terms.

The traditional beauty salon

The traditional beauty salon has been on the American landscape for over one-hundred years.  We’ve all seen them. We’ve walked past them, we’ve driven by them, and for 99% of us, we have walked into them.  They are retail establishments where several salon workers have stations, and at those stations customers sit and have their hair done, or their nails done, or some other beauty treatment.

The salon is owned by someone, and the “employees” are actually independent contractors who pay a small amount for the station they work at, and in return are paid a percentage (commission) of the profits made at that station while they are working.

This is a secure job for the independent contractors. It involves very little risk, very little investment, and it has appealed to beauticians for many decades.  They may not get rich doing it, but they do stay gainfully employed.

Today’s beauty salon suite

There is a new game in town, in towns across America, and it involves a beauty salon suite rental.  In this scenario, beauticians own their own businesses, and they rent a salon suite, or a salon studio, from a salon rental agency like our own Salon & Spa Galleria.  Once the rent is paid, all profits from earned in that salon suite go to the small business owner.

A world of difference between the two

The difference is like day and night. In one scenario, you are working for commissions, on average about 40%. In the other scenario, you are a business owner and you keep 100% of the profits.

The choice is completely yours to make

The difference is stark, and it would appear, at first glance, that renting a salon booth, and owning your own business, is a no-brainer, but we caution you that our luxury salon suites are not for everyone. Any time you run a business, you are taking on risk. There is no safety net as a business owner, and we always feel it is our responsibility to mention that to would-be business owners.

However, if you are a hard-worker, if you are determined to succeed, if you are a self-starter, and if you have some serious game regarding your skills, then we can’t think of a single reason why you wouldn’t consider a beauty salon suite rental from a company like Salon & Spa Galleria.
