Living The Dream And Opening Your Own Salon 

Read on for some suggestions and pieces of advice that can help you with this new and exciting venture. 

Standing out from the crowd

The first thing you need to concern yourself with is how you are going to stand out from the crowd. There are so many hair salons out there today, what makes yours different? This is not said to scare you or put you off - simply to get you to think outside of the box so that you can achieve more. 

You will also need to put a plan in place to market your salon effectively. Again, there are many different components that need to be considered. Firstly, you need to begin by looking at both online and offline marketing channels. Having a stylish website and a good SEO plan is of paramount importance in the current day and age. You will also need to be active on Twitter and other social media channels. Make sure your tone of voice and your brand is consistent throughout.

Setting up your hair salon with the right furniture and equipment 

So you’ve got the cash, you’ve found the perfect place for your hair salon, and you even know what you are going to call your new and exciting business. So, what’s next? You need to turn your business into the salon you have been dreaming about. You need to purchase all of the necessary salon equipment and you need to ensure your space looks beautiful, exciting, and inviting! This section will help you to do so by providing you with a simple step-by-step guide to creating an excellent salon space. 

When decorating any room or property you should always begin with planning. If you don’t plan then you are assured to forget about something. Make sure you write a list of everything you are going to need – from wash points and salon chairs to hairdressing posters and other accessories that will give your salon personality. Also, make note of anything you require like AC repair or new window installation. 

It is also a good idea to measure your room and draw an effective plan. By doing this you will be able to sit and sketch out an idea of where you are going to place your wash points, your mirrors, your chairs, your till, and so on and so forth. Remember to mark on your windows and doors before you begin. This plan will make it much easier for you to use your space effectively and ensure all equipment is set up effectively and stylishly. 

And last but not least, when it comes to buying your salon equipment you need to make a list of everything you need. What will you need for the reception area? What equipment is required for hairdressing? Are you offering any other services, such as waxing or manicures, as well? Once you have made your list you then need to ensure that all of your equipment shares a similar appearance so that it looks good in your salon. And you also need to make sure you buy from a credible company too.
