Your Own Hair Salon Business
a Beauty Salon or Barber Shop
owning a fun and financially rewarding business making
people look and feel fabulous. Welcome to the hair salon business!
Opening a hair salon lets you own a creative feel-good
business in a largely recession-proof industry. No matter how the
economy is, people need their hair cut and it's not something most people
can do at home!
If you can't cut hair
yourself, you can hire hairstylists for your hair salon. If you are currently a hairstylist
for someone else, starting your own hair salon business gives you the freedom
of being your own boss.
When you open a hair salon
(also known as a beauty salon, barber shop, hairdressing salon, beauty
parlor, or beauty shop), you have the luxury of designing the type
of hair salon you want, and providing the types of services you want.
You can open a traditional
hair salon offering hair care to all types of clients, or you can
open a hair salon that caters to a select type of client, such as
a men's barber and shave shop or a children's hair salon.
You can open a neighborhood
beauty shop or an exclusive upscale salon. You can open a full-service
hair salon or specialize in hair care services such as hair cuts,
hair coloring, hair straightening, hair extensions, or hair styling for
special events such as weddings and proms.
As a hair salon owner and
a business professional in a leadership role, you can earn
the respect of clients and your community. Your hair salon can be
a social hub where you develop long-term friendships with employees
opening a hair salon sounds like the career of your dreams, the FabJob
Guide to Become a Hair Salon Owner is
for you! In this e-book you will discover how you can successfully
start a hair salon.

I am working on a celebrity or a non-celebrity, the gratification comes
from seeing the self-esteem magnified when a women gets out of my chair.
Sometimes women come to my salon down in the dumps, for whatever reason…
but after an uplifting conversation, a glass of wine, an outstanding shampoo
with a head massage, and a fabulous new look, their whole outlook changes.
I love to see them walk out with their head lifted high, and that extra
sway in the hips. When this happens, I know I’ve done my job."
DaRico Jackson, celebrity stylist and owner of Amiri Salon, Beverly Hills,
a generalist is not the way to go. Instead, be known as the one to
go to for: perfect cuts, highlights and color, most stylish looks, healthy
hair, etc. Of course you can do all of these things, but concentrate
on being the best at one or two of them and the word will get out."
Susie Galvez, beauty industry expert and author
DaRico and Susie are two
