why you should lease a salon suite rental in Fort Worth

This question about owning a beauty salon is an important one, and this is an important article regarding that question. We are Salon & Spa Galleria, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with twenty-three affordable beauty salon suite rental locations. Call us at 817-917-1416 for more information.  But, before you call us, it would be to your benefit to read this article.

The advantages, and disadvantages, of working in a beauty salon.

The advantages of working in a beauty salon, hair salon, nail salon, et al, is that they represent a steady job with steady income.  Even during the worst of economic times, people will spend money on the beauty industry.  One of the few industries in the United States which flourished during the COVID years was the beauty industry, and our grandparents tell us this was also true during The Great Depression.

A steady job means steady income which means the bills get paid, and that is always a good thing.

On the flip side of this discussion is the fact that there is very little opportunity for advancement if you are an employee of a beauty salon, or an independent contractor working in a beauty salon owned by someone else.  You will always work for commissions and your earnings potential is limited by the number of hours that salon operates a workday.

In summary, steady work albeit severely limited in earnings potential.

The advantages, and disadvantages, of owning a beauty salon.

With ownership, the earnings ceiling is much, much higher. There is a feeling of freedom in knowing you can make the decisions, decide the hours of operation, and the fruits of your labors are significantly more than if you were an employee.

On the negative side, there is no safety net.  If you are not successful, there is no paycheck, and no paycheck means some serious financial difficulties.  That all leads to extra pressure on you, the owner, and the possibility of many a sleepless night if you do not do well in your business.

You really need to consider where you have the right stuff.

As enticing as it is to consider owning beauty shops, the simple truth is that not everyone has the temperament to be an owner, and that is what you need to consider before you take the leap into business ownership.  Do you have the right stuff? Do you have faith in your abilities?  Are you convinced you can weather any storm and rise above any difficulties which may come your way?

If you answer in the affirmative and if you live in the Greater Fort Worth area, we strongly suggest you check out Salon & Spa Galleria.  Our business model continues to springboard many talented beauticians to success.  You rent one of our luxury salon suites, for as little as $75 per week, utilities and WiFi and web page included, along with many more amenities, and within that salon suite you operate your own business. This is a much less-expensive approach than purchasing a retail shop or leasing an entire retail shop.  This way you keep your expenses at a minimum, start small and then grow safely into success.

A final word about Salon & Spa Galleria.
