Salon Chair Rental Approach

Here’s how it works in a standard salon space for rent approach:  the stylist essentially rents a chair in a beauty salon.  He, or she, then pays a commission to the salon owner.  In some cases that commission can be as high as 50%. In some cases, the stylist may also pay a fee for equipment, and they are also expected to help with clean-up and occasional receptionist duties.  It’s a good deal for a stylist just starting out, but what about the experienced stylist, the one with the loyal customer base?

A new trend . . . salon suites for lease . . .

The growing trend in the beauty salon business these days is salon suites for rent.  In this scenario, the stylist rents an entire salon suite from a company like Salon & Spa Galleria.  Along with the salon suite the following benefits are included:

  • 24/7 building access for those odd-hour customers
  • Free WiFi
  • HDTVs available
  • Security monitoring
  • Utilities included
  • Tankless hot water heaters
  • Washers and dryers on site
  • Break room available
  • State of the art equipment in all suites
  • Luxurious surroundings

And what does this all cost the stylist?

At Salon & Spa Galleria, a salon booth rental can start for as low as $50 per week with short-and-long term leases available.  Think about that for a moment: essentially, your overhead is $50 per week . . . two customers . . . after the second customer on Monday morning, all other income earned is free and clear for the week.

Does it all seem too good to be true? Well it isn’t!  In the Fort Worth area, Salon & Spa Galleria has nine location; nine locations filled with stylists just like you, people who are hard-workers, who have a loyal customer base, and who made the step up to a proactive future, one in which they are control of their profits and they share their commissions with no one.

So what will it be?  Will you continue to share your earnings with a salon owner, or will you begin pocketing your profits as you should be, since you do all the work?  There is a new trend in the beauty industry, salon suites for rent, and it’s high time you become a part of that trend.
