The services of a makeup artist, a cosmetologist and a hairdresser are used by both women and men, so the company is quite profitable for business. Being interested in how to open a beauty salon from scratch, first of all an entrepreneur should familiarize himself with all the details in more detail. Determine where to start and how much it costs.
At this stage, the entrepreneur should decide on what class of salon he is going to open: VIP, premium or economy, therefore it is more rational to look for the area in which more of the target audience lives. The dimensions of the room must be chosen in accordance with the type of services that the salon will provide.
Many people think that if you place the institution in the center of the city, it will certainly be a success. This is not always true. In such conditions, there is a lot of competition in the market that can destroy a business.
Note! Choosing the location of the cabin, it is better to stay on the place where there are less competitors. At the same time, it is important to find a prestigious place with convenient parking. It is good if, after visiting the salon and receiving quality services, the client also has aesthetic satisfaction.
Ways to start a business
Opening a new salon is the most difficult and long way to go. The entrepreneur must have experience, as there is a high probability that he will make a lot of mistakes on the road to success. Planning to use this option, the owner should study all the laws of the Russian Federation regarding this area, as well as attend special business seminars.
Buying a finished beauty salon. In comparison with the first option, this method is one of the most expensive. The option is suitable for those who do not wish to spend time on becoming a business, seeking to make a profit as soon as possible. Sometimes buyers hide the true reason for selling the salon, and for an entrepreneur, starting a business can be a cause of failure. It should be borne in mind that, most likely, the cabin will have to make re-equipment, hire new staff and engage in its PR. A significant part of clients will inherit by inheritance from a new entrepreneur.
Contacting consulting organizations to involve professionals on any issues. In such a situation, the owner has a chance to get useful information regarding errors and problems, as well as to master the established connections in various aspects of the business.
Franchising. This option is among the most expensive, but at the same time the most reliable. The implementation of the business is in the strict framework of the franchise. Despite the tempting offer, to purchase a franchise is not so simple. Most of the companies treat customers with distrust, and besides there are not so many organizations that sell franchises in Russia.
Homework masters. They cannot offer customers a wide variety and high quality. Using such procedures, the client does not receive aesthetic pleasure. But the cost of the service successfully compensates for this shortcoming.
Hair salons. Customers prefer them because of their low cost, but one-pointedness and a small range are their main drawback.
Salons “for themselves”, presented to relatives as a surprise. Often, their owners do not have management skills, so they do not bring good profits. These competitors can be considered as those who do not belong to any item. As a rule, they have competent management and have a wide range of services.
By the time of the official opening of the salon, the entrepreneur is obliged to issue an IP or LLC. As a rule, it takes no more than 1 month. In addition to this, he is obliged to draw up a lease agreement, acquire certificates for SEC and permission of fire services. If the company plans to provide therapeutic procedures, such as wrapping, mesotherapy, Botox, massage, etc., you will have to get a license.
Note! Workers are required to regularly undergo necessary medical examinations and have medical records. If there is no desire or opportunity, the entrepreneur can use paid services for the collection and provision of all documents.
In order for the enterprise to work as a well-established mechanism, an entrepreneur needs to hire an administrator, a hairdresser, an accountant, a cosmetologist, a pedicure master, a manager, a cleaning lady, and sometimes a storekeeper and seller.
