If you are going to take the big leap and rent a salon suite, we feel it is necessary that we share some information with you prior to you signing that lease. This is a big move, breaking away from a beauty salon owned by someone else, and making a go of it in your own business, and it is important that you have all the facts.
And facts we have! We are Salon & Spa Galleria, serving the great people of Fort Worth, Texas, with twelve salon suite locations. Call us at 972-691-7300 for more information about a salon booth rental, or to arrange for a tour of one of our twelve locations.
Now, though, let’s talk about renting a salon suite rental.
Fact #1: Not everyone is cut out to be an independent business owner
This is a hard truth, but one you must be aware of. Not everyone is a hard-worker. Not everyone is a self-starter. Not everyone is made of the “right stuff” to make it as an independent hair stylist, nail professional, or other beauty expert. It takes long hours, hard work, and uncommon determination to succeed in any business, and there are some people who are much better off working for someone else.
Which type of person are you?
Fact #2: Success is found in the number of amenities included
Let’s say you find a situation where you can rent a salon chair rental for $100 per week. This is a pretty common rental fee for salon suite agencies. On the surface, this looks like a great deal, yes? $400 per month rental is a piece of cake, right? That’s four customers and your rent is paid.
But hold on! There are other expenses. There are utilities, taxes, insurance, WiFi, the cost of furniture, laundry, business cards, business license . . . all of those amenities and extra expenses which people tend to forget about when signing a lease.
Look for the best package when renting. Look for a package like the one we offer at Salon & Spa Galleria.
Fact #3: You need business and marketing training
It sounds great, being in business for yourself, but do you know how to run a business? Do you know how to attract customers on a shoestring budget? There is a ton of information you need in order to be successful. Salon & Spa Galleria offers business and marketing workshops. Look for the same type of offer in the lease you sign.
Fact #4: An established client list is crucial to success
Without an established client list, your first few months are going to be tough. There is no other way to say it, and you may not succeed. Make sure you have some guarantee customers going into this move.
Fact #5: You will be as successful as you want to be when you rent a salon suite
The sky is the limit in this business. You can figuratively touch the sky, or forever be reaching for it. It all depends on you and the amount of work you are willing to put into your adventure.
