Start Up Requirements
This business can be started with moderate capitalization. The amount of money you need to start a hair salon is strictly related to the quality, type and choice of salon design, utility deposits, leasehold improvements, rent, fixtures, equipment that you intend to use and opening inventory. First of all you will need to rent a location anywhere from 500 to 3,000 square feet. You will then have to decide on the services that your hail salon will provide. That will help you determine the number of personnel you need to hire. Other start-up expenses may include: Leasehold improvements, salon equipment, cash register, merchant account fees, business license fees, utilities, insurance, professional fees, signage costs, initial marketing and advertising expenses etc.
