Talking About Spas and Salons

What Are The Advantages Of Renting A Salon Suite?

by Colleen Sanders

The beauty industry helps people look and feel their best through hair cuts, skin treatments, makeup applications, and more. As a stylist, you need somewhere to work. A well-stocked salon is an ideal place to see clients. Fortunately, a salon of your own is in reach when you rent a salon suite. Salon suites let stylists and estheticians run their own salon without the expense of purchasing an entire salon outright. These are four advantages you can gain from renting a salon suite:

1. Create your ideal salon space

When you rent a salon suite, you have total control of the decor. Since you're not sharing the space with anyone else, you can make sure every inch of your new salon reflects your personal style. The aesthetics of a salon are very important since they set the mood and your clients' expectations. Spend some time purchasing the right decorations and accessories for your new space. Choose paintings, figurines, and displays that create the effect you want.

2. Run your business how you want

Renting a salon suite will allow you to work for yourself. As an independent stylist, you'll be able to run your business however you want. You can choose your own hours or even see clients by appointment only if you prefer. When you run your own business, you'll be able to succeed on your own terms.

3. Cultivate a list of clients

The salon business is really a people business. People return to hairstylists, makeup artists, and estheticians that they trust to do a good job. Working for someone else's salon makes it hard to build customer loyalty since customers may choose to see the next available stylist. When you work for yourself, you will be able to deal with each client directly. As you build your private practice, you'll have the opportunity to cultivate a list of loyal clients. 

4. Implement your own COVID-19 safety measures

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to update the ways they engage with clients. This is especially true of estheticians and hair stylists who work up close with their clients. When you rent a salon suite, you have the opportunity to set your own boundaries when it comes to health and safety. You'll be able to implement the kinds of social distancing regulations that make you and your clients feel comfortable. You can even require all your clients to wear masks before entering your salon suite if you prefer.
