No, this is not a trick question: a salon suite and booth rental is not right for everyone. There truly are people who are more comfortable working for someone else. There are people who do not handle independent ownership well, and they are definitely in a better place if they continue to work for commissions in a beauty salon. So let’s look at this question in-depth and see which category you belong in with regards to salon suite and booth rental.
Call us afterwards if you have any question.
Attributes to have when renting a luxury salon suite
In no particular order, we have found that our independent stylists all share these attributes:
- They are independent in nature
- They are good decision-makers
- They thrive in a solitary environment
- They have good business sense
- They are self-motivators
- They are organized
- They have a strong work ethic
Does that sound like you? This is “get down and get real time.” If you are seriously considering a salon chair rental or a salon suite rental, you need to sit yourself down and ask yourself if you meet all of those requirements. You are considering leaving the nest, so to speak. You are considering cutting the lifeline which is the beauty salon you work at. That can be frightening, so take your time and make sure you have what it takes to go it alone without a safety net.
Those who do not do well as independent salon booth renters:
- Those who lack self-motivation
- Those who do not handle pressure well
- Those who are easily rattled
None of those are negatives! In business it is extremely important to be honest with yourself. Not everyone is cut out for owning a business. There are many people in the United States . . . millions . . . who like stability and like knowing that a steady paycheck will be earned weekly. There is no shame in that.
So which one are you? If you are the first kind, you have options in the city you live in. Most cities of any decent size have similar salon booth rental opportunities, and most of them follow pretty much the same business model. Check out your area and see what is offered, and then begin wrapping your brain around the future which has you as the owner of your own business, the chief decision-maker, and the recipient of the profits.
