Miniature Beauty Shops are the Rage for a Very Good Reason

You are without a doubt familiar with beauty shops, but the concept of a miniature beauty shop may be new to you; thus the reason for this article, because miniature beauty shops, or miniature hair salons, are the future of the beauty industry.  In this article we will tell you why a small beauty salon is a great direction to take.

We are Salon & Spa Galleria, leading the Fort Worth Metro area with twenty-two salon suite rental locations. Call us at 817-917-1416 for more information.

What are miniature beauty shops?

The traditional concept of a beauty shop is a large space with a waiting area, a receptionist, and multiple work stations behind the receptionist where multiple beauticians work with clients. This is the way beauty shops were one-hundreds years ago, and that is the way many beauty shops still operate today.

This is a great arrangement for the owner of the beauty shop, because they pay a commission to the beauticians working there, usually around 40%, and they keep 60% of every dollar earned in the shop.

This is not, however, a great arrangement for the beauticians, only making 40% of every dollar they earn, but up until recently, most beauticians did not have the investment capital to open their own beauty salon.

Now, take that traditional model and shrink it down to one owner, who is also the only beautician, and is working, not in a large, multi-station retail space, but in one salon suite, one room.

Why are miniature beauty shops the future of the beauty industry?

The reason why these miniature beauty shops are the future is simply because they are affordable to practically anyone.  Instead of paying rent on a retail location, which can cost thousands of dollars once utilities are added, beauticians are only paying rent for one salon suite.  In most cases, the owner of one of these small beauty shops is only looking at a monthly overhead of a thousand dollars or less.

What we have to offer at Salon & Spa Galleria.

Now this explanation really gets interesting, because at our own Salon & Spa Galleria, luxury salon suites begin at $75 per week.  But that’s only part of the good news. Included in the weekly rental are all of your utilities, WiFi, furniture if needed, a free HDTV, laundry facilities, security monitoring, and the full power of the Salon & Spa Galleria name.

Stop and imagine this for a moment: the rent for a salon studio, plus most of your overhead expenses, only totaling $300 per month.  There is no way you can rent a retail building for that price, and we can assure you that we are the lowest cost in the Fort Worth area.  What we have done is make owning a beauty salon affordable for practically every talented beautician.  We are locally owned and operated, and we want you to succeed.  Call us for more details about this great opportunity.

A final word about salon suite rentals.

Owning a beauty salon is not for everyone, but anyone who wants to do it can afford to do it using the Salon & Spa Galleria business model. Call us today.
