Ten years ago, the idea of a hair salon booth rental was pretty new in the United States. Ten years ago beauty salons ruled the beauty industry. Beauticians worked for a beauty shop owner, usually working for commissions. They rarely made good money but they were able to gain experience and exposure so that someday, perhaps, they would be able to own their own beauty salon. It rarely happened, of course, because starting a new business is an expensive undertaking, but it was a nice dream nonetheless.
But then salon booth rentals came along, and the beauty industry changed. Now you can be your own boss in your own hair salon business, simply be renting a salon suite. This article will discuss several factors you should consider when choosing a salon booth, and if you have any questions you can call us at (817) 823-7105. We are Salon & Spa Galleria, with ten locations in the Greater Fort Worth area, and we would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
The main salon booth rental factors to consider are . . .
Cost, amenities, access, and ownership! Let’s look at each of them.
Salon booth rental prices
What will you pay for your salon rental? To give you something to gauge it by, Salon & Spa Galleria has salon booth rental prices for as low as $50 per week at select locations. Consider that price for a moment. Fifty dollars per week means that once you service your first customer on a Monday morning, you will have paid for your weekly lease. That is a quick turnaround on overhead. Check around your area and get a feel for what a competitive price is.
Amenities can be a deal-breaker
When we are talking about amenities, what we basically mean is this: what is included in your salon booth rental price? To give you something to gauge it by, at Salon & Spa Galleria, your suite rental price includes basically everything you will need to open your own business including utilities, equipment, HDTV, WiFi, a webpage, a press release, security monitoring, washer and dryer . . . practically everything you need. Keep that in mind when you are shopping around.
How accessible is the salon suite?
Will you have 24/7 access to your suite so you can see customers at all hours of the day and night? This may nor may not be important to you, but it is a nice amenity to consider. At Salon and Spa Galleria, all of our clients have 24/7 access.
And finally ownership!
Who will you be dealing with in a management capacity? Salon & Spa Galleria is locally owned and operated, and we believe that is important to our clients. We like to think it is important that they are dealing with a management group which lives in their city and is easy to gain access to. We like to think that adds a personal touch to the whole business arrangement, and you may prefer that as well. It’s always nice to deal with a real person when you have a problem rather than some disembodied voice from an office one-thousand miles away.
So there you have it, factors to consider when renting a hair salon booth rental. Call us if you have further questions.
