The Essentials For Owning A Hair Salon

Since we are in the hair salon rental business, and since we lead the way in salon suite rentals in the Fort Worth Metro area, we thought it about time that we write an article discussing the essentials to owning your own mini-hair salon, so that’s exactly what we will do in this article. We are Salon & Spa Galleria, serving the fine people of Fort Worth and Tarrant County with twenty salon suite rental agencies. Call us at 972-691-7300 for more information and to arrange for a tour of our facilities.

Now, though, let’s talk about what you need in order to successfully operate a small hair salon, not only in Fort Worth, but anywhere in this great country.

The hair salon all begins with you

We are not going to sugarcoat anything in this article. We will flat out tell you that not every talented beautician has what it takes to successful own their own hair salon, no matter the size.  We would love to tell you that talent is enough in this business, but that would be a disservice to you and an insult to your intelligence.  If talent was all it took to be successful, everyone would own a hair salon or nail salon suite, and there would be no employees.

You need to be a self-starter.  You need to be a hard-worker.  You need to be able to set aside the negative thoughts and concentrate on successes.  You need to be willing to continue with your education about marketing and entrepreneurship.  You need to be willing to listen to suggestions, and you need to be flexible and able to shift directions when the market dictates that you do so.

And, finally, you need to be a people-person, because without the ability to make customers feel welcomed and wanted, your life as a business owner will be short-lived.

Find the right location for your mini-hair salon

Very few service companies can succeed without a good location.  You need good drive-by traffic, and you need good walk-in traffic.  You need ample parking spaces because no customer wants to be inconvenienced by looking for a parking space, not when there are so many hair salons to choose from.  And you need easy access to the hair salon.

Nail those things with your location and you will have taken a large step in the right direction.

The money issue of owning a hair salon

And, of course, everyone wants to talk about money.  Let’s use Salon & Spa Galleria for an example.  Our outstanding luxury salon suites start at $75 per week in select locations. Included in that low price are utilities, WiFi, a free HDTV, a press release, laundry facilities, security monitoring, your own web page, and continued marketing and business workshops.  You pay for your business license, for insurance, and for any product you plan on selling from your beauty salon.

Quite frankly, you won’t find a better rental offering anywhere in Fort Worth, and if you are in another city altogether, that gives you a standard to compare against.

A final word about Salon & Spa Galleria

Not all hair salon booth rental agencies are as accommodating as Salon & Spa Galleria.  All we can do is tell you to shop around and find the best fit for you.  And if you are in the Fort Worth area, and success is your goal, you can do no better than Salon & Spa Galleria, twenty locations strong and growing.  Call us and let’s get you started on the path of success.
