- Make a business plan. (find a template and fill it out)
- Figure out funding. (family, boyfriend, bank or friends)
- Find a mentor. (if you cannot in person find one, find one of line)
- Put an accounting and inventory program in place. …
- Hunt for the right location. (a high traffic safe environment easily accessible to your clientele)
- Know the area. (visit all times of the day and night and maybe talk to realtor about it)
- Design your salon around the clientele you want. (if you want to do classy or trashy know your clientele and their expectations)
- Provide excellent customer service. (meaning do not ignore them and be professional no pull up on people conversation)
The main thing is funding. You can start out small from home or get an investor to fund you (wink wink) or just borrow the money you need from the bank.
The start-up capital will be used for the design, leasehold improvements, and equipment of the salon. Leasehold improvements will amount to approximately$32,500, and salon equipment will cost about $27,000. The owner will invest $500for cash-on-hand at starting date.
With all your lease equipment and leases in place you are ready for business. It is not complicated. Just work hard and then harder and then advertise/promote like HELL.
