When setting up your salon whether its hairdressing, beauty or a nail salon you will need to purchase lots of different equipment, some which requires a large investment. So whether your budget is large or small it is worth carrying out some research to ensure you are investing wisely. With a new salon popping up on every high street, competition is tough so opening a salon can be a risky business. 


Here are a few tips to think about : 

Why not add a piece of equipment for a deluxe option of a treatment e.g. Purchasing heated mitts /booties and electrical manicure/pedicure tools to offer luxury manicures and pedicures.

If you already offer massage and have a large clientele for massage treatments, you may want to purchase a hot stone kit, this is minimal investment and the cost is low to carry out the treatment, therefore  easy to get a good return on investment.

The same could be said for facials, offering a deluxe option with the use of an electrical machine for a more specialised treatments e.g. Steamer, galvanic, muscle toning or microdermabrasion etc.

Alternatively, you could investigate looking at offering new treatments so if you don’t already offer waxing treatments, this is a highly profitable and popular treatment for salons to offer, again low initial investment.

Or if you have a small space within your salon that could be used to make money maybe start to offer spray tanning treatments, again a low value investment with a good return as this treatment is both popular and profitable with clients.

To maintain a competitive edge, you need to keep aware of different treatments available and investigate thoroughly to determine which treatments are right for your salon and clientele.
