I was tired of working for salon owners and tired of changing salons when things were not going right for me. Starting over , loosing clientele and really just being governed by someone else who in my eyes, wasnt doing a good job as an owner really got old! This site is my complete story of what I did right and what I did wrong. I discuss everything in the site from how to sign your lease and the real estate language that you need to be familiar with. To the building permits that you will need or not need to obtain. I show you how and were to go to file for your "Certificate of Occupancy" and how to avoid scams with credit card processors! There is a lot of information that you need to kind of soak up before you jump out there. Kind of like a pre requisite for a college course.

Where is the funding coming from? The first thing you need to think about is money. How much of your own money do you have right now that you can invest? How much money can you put with that money from other sources to give you a grand total of all your liquid resources. Next how much money can you come up with in the next 60 days that you hav'nt already accounted for. This will give you a realistic figure of how much cash you have to work with over the next two months to get this thing off the ground. Second how much available credit do you have on your credit cards right now! Are you in the position to apply for new credit cards to extend your available credit. Who do you bank with? How long have you banked with them? Is your account in good standing with them so that you can apply for a small business loan through your bank. Do you have any items around the house that you can sell to raise capital? Grants? It's possible that you may qualify for a small micro grant to help out with the funding not to just pay for everything. Do you have family members that might pay you money today for services that you will provide in the future. I have several more ways to come up with funding in "The Owners Manual Vol 2" and I go into detail about some of the ways described here. .Opening or starting a beauty salon is work.

WHERE IS THE FUNDING COMING FROM
The first thing you have to know before you make an investment is how much capital you have to work with. For me I only used $2,500 bucks and two credit cards and that was enough to build a Barber and Salon with nine barber stations and a salon with two stylist stations. Your wants or desires might be greater or smaller you have to decide.

THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR YOUR BEAUTY SALON
When I chose the location for my beauty salon, the first thing that I liked is that it was in a shopping center. Not your typical shopping center, the shopping center is big and sits in the middle of a middle class commerce area of some pretty busy streets surrounded by businesses. Ive seen the setup every were, and to me that is an ideal location. Think about it, in a shopping center middle of a commerce area, corner of two busy streets, surrounded by businesses perfect. Now, what about the building itself. Does it cater to men and women. Something that you would think was a small problem could really pose a huge threat to growth. Want to see some locations that you think would be a great space but really a waste of money and time I will show you.I started opening my own beauty salons a long time ago but now starting my own beauty salon is more important!
NEGOTIATING THE LEASE WITH THE OWNER OR BROKER
If there is one area in this beauty salon buying process that is more important than another it is this one, "Negotiating with the Broker". Now this is were you want to demonstrate your professionalism. This really is the only person that stands in your way! You want to talk to them proper, business like, like you have done this before and with the up most respect. There are a few terms that you need to know that they might throw at you to see if you half way know what your doing.You might have to qualify with your FICO credit score to lease from them. You might require first and last months rent. All of these things are negotiable depending on the mood that you put them in when you talk to them. The agent will have some tricks up his sleeve, because he represents the buildings owner and not you! Let me explain to you what "Triple Net" means and how Landlords try to raise rents after you sign your lease using "Adjusted Tax Statements".

TURNING ON THE POWER TO THE BEAUTY SALON
O.k congratulations!

I have a list of ten things that are a must to prep your building. I will give you the first one. Bomb the inside of the building with bug foggers! Please before you do anything just kill off the insects that have made there home there because of tenants prior, or due to a long period of vacancy. opening a barber shop How do you open or start a barbershop?

LETS BUILD A BEAUTY SALON
I'm skipping through alot of information because unfortunately I don't want to just give it away. I broke the site into topics to kind or cover a little bit of information that's covered in the "Owner's Manual Vol 1". Before you go to a Beauty supply store to try to put together the interior of your beauty salon let me show you what I did. Its so important to make your beauty salon look like more than just a beauty salon.
You need to create an environment that you don't have to try to sale. You want your own beauty salon to sell itself! You want people to walk in and say "This is a really nice beauty salon, yea I'll be back". Every beauty salon doesn't get this response, but I guaranty you your beauty salon will.
Staring your own beauty salonis very important!
GETTING COSMETOLOGIST TO WORK AT YOUR BEAUTY SALON
Good cosmetologist are more important than good customers believe it or not. Good cosmetologist will bring the customers to your beauty salon. How are you going to get your hair stylist? Do you know any other hair stylist that are going to start with you? To have a good start you want to have at least three good hair stylist paying rent or commision? When I opened my beauty salon it was just me and a guy named Twin. Now its me and eleven other people six stylist and five barbers. I can show you how to fill your stations and get those chairs making money! One way that I talk about in my manual are what about beauty colleges. Ever try taking your literature to a beauty college and telling the owner of the school your there trying to recruit students for your salon? Good luck that technique never works!
