What is a Hair Salon Business Plan?

A successful salon business plan provides a snapshot of your salon as it stands today, and lays out your growth plan for the next five years. It explains your business objectives and goals as the salon owner and your strategy for reaching them. It also requires you to conduct market research to support your plans. Your business plan is the roadmap to your salon’s success and growth.  

Why Do You Need a Business Plan for a Hair Salon?

If you’re looking to start a salon or grow your existing salon you need a business plan. A successful business plan will help you raise funding, if needed, and plan out the salon’s growth in order to improve your chances of success. Your business plan is a living document that should be updated annually as your company grows and changes.  

Sources of Funding for Hair Salon Owners

With regards to funding, the main sources of funding for a salon business include bank loans and angel investors. With regards to bank loans, lending institutions will want to review your salon business plan and gain confidence that you will be able to repay your business loan payments including interest. To acquire this confidence, the loan officer will not only want to confirm that your financials are reasonable. But they will want to see a professional business plan. Such a plan will give them the confidence that you can successfully and professionally operate a salon business.

The second most common form of funding for a salon is angel investors. Angel investors are wealthy individuals who will write you a check. They will either take equity in return for their funding or, like a bank, they will give you a loan.

How to write a business plan for your salon.

A hair salon business plan outline should include the 10 sections as follows:

Executive Summary

Company overview, industry analysis, customer analysis, competitive analysis, marketing plan, operations plan, management team, financial plan.

Your executive summary details an introduction to your salon business plan, but it is normally the last section you write because it provides a summary of each key section of your plan.

The goal of your Executive Summary is to quickly engage the reader. Explain to them the type of hair salon you are operating and the status; for example, are you a startup, do you have a hair salon with existing clients and revenues that you would like to grow, or are you operating a chain of hair salons.

Next, provide an overview of each of the subsequent sections of your plan. For example, give a brief overview of the hair salon industry. Discuss the type of hair salon you are operating. Detail your direct competitors. Give an overview of your target market. Provide a snapshot of your hair salon’s marketing strategies. Identify the key members of your team. And offer an overview of your financial plan.  

In your company description, you will detail the type of hair salon you are operating.

For example, you might operate one of the following types:

  • Hair salon focusing strictly on hair cuts and hair styling
  • Hair salon offering other spa services or skin care services
  • Hair salon offering products
  • Combination of the above types

In addition to explaining the type of hair salon you operate, the Company Analysis section of your business plan needs to provide background on your business.

Include answers to question such as:

  • When and why did you start your hair salon business?
  • What is your business model?
  • What is your mission statement?
  • What milestones have you achieved to date? Milestones could include sales goals you’ve reached, new store openings, etc.
  • Your legal structure. Are you incorporated as an S-Corp? A Limited Liability Company? A sole proprietorship? Explain your legal structure here.

In your industry analysis, you need to provide an overview of the hair salon business.

While this may seem unnecessary, it serves multiple purposes.

First, researching the hair salon industry educates you. It helps you understand the market in which you are operating.

Secondly, a thorough market analysis can improve your strategy particularly if your research identifies market trends. For example, if there was a trend towards a new type of hair or hair service, it would be helpful to ensure your plan included offering such services.

The third reason for market research is to prove to readers that you are an expert in your industry. By conducting the hair salon industry research and presenting it in your plan, you achieve just that.

The following questions should be answered in the industry analysis section of your hair salon business plan:

  • How big is the hair salon business (in dollars)?
  • Is the market declining or increasing?
  • Who are the key competitors in the market?
  • Who are the key suppliers in the market?
  • What trends are affecting the industry?
  • What is the industry’s growth forecast over the next 5 – 10 years?
  • What is the relevant market size? That is, how big is the potential market for your hair salon. You can extrapolate such as figure by assessing the size of the market in the entire country and then applying that figure to your local population.

The customer analysis section of your hair salon plan must detail the local clients you serve and/or expect to serve.

The following are examples of customer segments: college students, sports enthusiasts, soccer moms, techies, teens, baby boomers, etc.

As you can imagine, the customer segment(s) you choose will have a great impact on the type of hair salon you operate. Clearly baby boomers would want a different atmosphere, pricing and product options, and would respond to different marketing efforts than teens.

Try to break out your target customers in terms of their demographic and psychographic profiles. With regards to demographics, include a discussion of the ages, genders, locations and income levels of the customers you seek to serve. Because most salons primarily serve customers living in their same city or town, such demographic information is easy to find on government websites.

Psychographic profiles explain the wants and needs of your target customers. The more you can understand and define these needs, the better you will do in attracting and retaining your customers.

With Growthink’s Ultimate Salon Business Plan Template you can finish your plan in just 8 hours or less!

Your competitive analysis should identify your indirect and direct competitors and then focus on the latter.

Direct competitors are other hair salons in the local community.

Indirect competitors are other options that customers have to purchase from that aren’t direct competitors. This includes other local businesses that sell products such as hair dye, hair treatments, or styling products. You need to mention such competition to show you understand that not everyone in your target market frequents a hair salon on a regular basis or at all.

With regards to direct competition, you want to detail the other local businesses with which you compete. Most likely, your direct competitors will be hair salons located close to your location.

For each such competitor, provide an overview of their businesses and document their strengths and weaknesses. Unless you once worked at your competitors’ businesses, it will be impossible to know everything about them. But you should be able to find out key things about them such as:

  • What types of customers do they serve?
  • What salon services do they offer?
  • What products do they offer?
  • What is their pricing (premium, low, etc.)?
  • What are they good at?
  • What are their weaknesses?

With regards to the last two questions, think about your answers from the customers’ perspective. And don’t be afraid to stand outside your competitors’ locations and ask customers as they leave what they like most and least about them.

The final part of your competitive analysis section is to document your areas of competitive advantage. For example:

  • Will you provide superior hair salon services?
  • Will you provide superior hair salon products?
  • Will you provide specialized services that your competitors don’t offer?
  • Will you make it easier or faster for customers to acquire your products?
  • Will you provide exceptional customer service?
  • Will you offer better pricing?

Think about ways you will outperform your competition and document them in this section of your plan.  

Traditionally, a marketing plan includes the four P’s: Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. For a hair salon business plan, your marketing plan should include the following:

In the product section you should reiterate the type of hair salon that you documented in your Company Analysis. Then, detail the specific hair services you will be offering.

Document your pricing strategy and how they compare to your competitors. Essentially in the product and price sub-sections of your marketing plan, you are presenting the service menu you will offer and their prices.

Place refers to the location of your hair salon. Document your location and mention how the location will impact your success. For example, is your hair salon located next to a heavily populated office building, or gym, etc. Discuss how your location might provide a steady stream of new clients.

Here you will document how you will drive new clients to your location(s) and the loyalty programs you will implement to keep your loyal clientele. The following are some promotional methods you might consider:

  • Making your hair salon’s front store extra appealing to attract passing customers
  • Developing and marketing your website
  • Social media marketing (advertising and organic posts)
  • Advertising in local papers and magazines
  • Reaching out to local bloggers and websites
  • Partnerships with local organizations
  • Local radio advertising
  • Banner ads at local venues

Also think about your hair salon’s Unique Selling Proposition (USP), which should answer why customers should choose your salon over others. Make sure your USP is reflected in your marketing.  

While the earlier sections of your business plan explained your goals, your operations plan describes how you will meet them. Your operations plan should have two distinct sections as follows.

Everyday short-term processes include all of the tasks involved in running your hair salon such as serving customers, inventory management, keeping the hair salon clean, etc.

Long-term goals are the milestones you hope to achieve. These could include the dates when you expect to serve your 1,000th customer, or when you hope to reach $X in sales. It could also be when you expect to hire your Xth employee or launch a new salon.  

To demonstrate your hair salon’s ability to succeed as a business, a strong salon management team is essential. Highlight your key players’ backgrounds, emphasizing those skills and experiences that prove their ability to grow a company.

Ideally you and/or your team members have direct experience in the hair salon business. If so, highlight this experience and expertise. But also highlight any experience that you think will help your business succeed.

If your team is lacking, consider assembling an advisory board. An advisory board would include 2 to 8 individuals who would act like mentors to your business. They would help answer questions and provide strategic guidance. If needed, look for advisory board members with experience in salons and/or successfully running retail and small businesses.  

Your financial plan should include your 5-year financial statement broken out both monthly or quarterly for the first year and then annually. Your financial statements include your income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statements.

Income Statement

An income statement is more commonly called a Profit and Loss statement or P&L. It shows your revenues and then subtracts your costs to show whether you turned a profit or not.

In developing your income statement, you need to devise assumptions. For example, will you serve 20 customers per day or 50? Will your average price point be $50 or $100? How much revenue do you expect to make each year? And will sales grow by 2% or 10% per year? As you can imagine, your choice of assumptions will greatly impact the financial forecasts for your business. As much as possible, conduct research to try to root your assumptions in reality.

Balance Sheets

While balance sheets include much information, to simplify them to the key items you need to know about, balance sheets show your assets and liabilities. For instance, if you spend $100,000 on building out your hair salon, that will not give you immediate profits. Rather it is an asset that will hopefully help you generate profits for years to come. Likewise, if a bank writes you a check for $100.000, you don’t need to pay it back immediately. Rather, that is a liability you will pay back over time.

Cash Flow Statement

Your cash flow statement will help determine how much money you need to start or grow your business, and make sure you never run out of money. What most salon owners don’t realize is that you can turn a profit but run out of money and go bankrupt. For example, let’s say a company approached you with a massive $100,000 hair salon contract to provide hair salon services to their employees. Let’s assume the contract would cost you $50,000 to fulfill. Well, in most cases, you would have to pay that $50,000 now for supplies, employee salaries, etc. But let’s say the company didn’t pay you for 180 days. During that 180 day period, you could run out of money.

In developing your Income Statement and Balance Sheets be sure to include several of the key costs needed in starting or growing a hair salon:

  • Location build-out including design fees, construction, etc.
  • Cost of equipment like chairs, washing equipment, etc.
  • Payroll or salaries paid to staff
  • Business insurance
  • Licenses and permits
  • Legal expenses

Financial planning is about getting the numbers right to create a compelling and valuable hair salon business plan and, therefore, increases the chances of a successful launch of your new salon. The “right” type of numbers depends on who you are targeting the plan at. Consider the different needs of investors and lenders and what they want out of the financial section of your business plan.

Right for Investors

The numbers that investors want to see are realistic, but conservative, projections that still show a return that they feel is required by the level of risk they will take on by investing and by the opportunities to use their money elsewhere that they will give up (their opportunity risk). You lower the risk that investors feel they are taking on by showing proof of the management team’s experience, well-thought out marketing and operations plans, a quantifiable customer target market with demonstrated needs that the products and services of your salon will fulfill, and a competitive landscape which presents an opportunity for your business to steal some market share from the current players. Within the financial section, you support this lower risk by explaining your future revenue assumptions in a way that shows a gradual build up to profitability and a rationale for how the number of customers you expect is reasonable.

For some businesses, the return required by investors is only fully realized in the event of the sale of the business. However, an investor in a salon with modest dreams of being a local leader and an ongoing concern may show significant investor return through dividends paid out as the cash becomes available. For most investors, the return must be significantly greater than that of a safe investment like certificates of deposit or treasury bonds or mutual funds. Investors personally interested in your success (like family or friends) may not require as high of a annual return, while professional investors will be serious about a high return.

Right for Lenders

Lenders are most interested in the safe return of their principal with interest over time, and will not care so much about the absolute value of the company, beyond the value of its assets which can be seized and liquidated in the case of a loan default. To show lenders the numbers they want to see, the financial plan shows the business becoming cash flow positive relatively quickly to allow for these payments to begin, and for this situation to continue throughout the years after that point. Lenders will be interested in the value of assets that are being purchased (such as equipment, salon inventory, and real estate) and cautious lenders will want these assets to act as collateral and to limit their loan to this amount, unless personal assets are also offered as collateral. Lenders will share many of the same concerns as investors – that the rest of the plan is well-thought out, that financial assumptions are reasonable and conservative, and that the management team has the experience to lead.  

Attach your full financial projections in the appendix of your plan along with any supporting documents that make your plan more compelling. For example, you might include your hair salon’s design blueprint or location lease.

As a salon owner, having a well-thought-out business plan is essential to the success of your business. A salon business plan outlines your business goals, market analysis, marketing strategies, financial projections, and other key details, serving as a roadmap that guides you through the process of starting, running, and growing your salon. In this article, we’ll go over the key elements of a salon business plan and provide tips on how to write the best business plan for salons in 2023.

How Much Does It Cost to Run a Salon? 

Before you start writing a salon business plan, it’s important to get an idea of the startup and ongoing costs. As we discuss in this article , the costs of starting a salon range from $62,000 for an existing salon to $90,000 for a new operation. With some of the expenses, you’ll incur one-time costs – other expenses will be ongoing such as supplies and inventory. Here are some of the typical costs associated with starting a salon: 

Existing Salon 

When you buy an existing salon, be it a hair salon or nail salon, you save on the costs of buildout, salon equipment , and salon marketing, assuming the salon already has some of these elements in place. Here’s what you can expect to pay for the following:

  • Rent deposit: $4,500
  • Buyout of current salon: $10,500
  • Leasehold improvements: $15,000
  • Equipment: $10,000
  • Initial supplies: $8,000
  • Initial inventory: $4,000
  • Certifications and licenses: $4,000
  • Marketing: $5,000
  • Legal or consulting fees: $1,000

Grand total: $62,000

The upfront costs of building out a brand-new salon, marketing it to local clients, and getting the business up and running will likely exceed those of buying an existing salon. Here are the typical expenses you can expect to incur for a new salon:

  • Buyout of current salon: $0
  • Leasehold improvements: $35,000
  • Equipment: $25,000
  • Marketing: $8,000

Grand total: $89,500

You may also want to budget for the following:

  • If you need a loan or financing to cover startup costs, expect to pay interest rates of 1.25% to 10%.
  • Salon insurance ranges from $50 to $1,000 per month.
  • Salon booking software and a point of sale (POS) system range from free to $500 per month. GlossGenius starts at an industry-low $24 per month with low payment processing fees and includes a website, a branded card reader, and other extras.
  • A salon website can cost you thousands, but with GlossGenius, it’s included free! Beautiful and customizable, your website is packed with scheduling features and is easy to navigate, helping to increase bookings and future appointments.

How Profitable Is Owning a Salon?

If you owned a salon during the pandemic, no doubt you experienced your fair share of struggles between lockdowns, closures, and reduced business hours. According to Statista , the U.S. market size of beauty salons dropped from $69 billion in 2019 to $42.3 billion in 2020. Fortunately, things are beginning to look up for hair, skin, nail, and other types of salons, with the market valued at $53.6 billion as of 2022.

You can take advantage of the comeback by approaching your salon startup with a solid plan in place, a realistic budget, and a marketing strategy. A beauty salon business plan can help you identify any questions , opportunities, and potential roadblocks so you can have the best chances of getting funding, earning a return on your investment and achieving profitability. The more you control your expenses and market your business successfully, the more profitable you will be – so be sure to take your time creating a salon business plan for your needs.

6 Steps to Writing a Hair Salon Business Plan

The business plan is the most important document for any salon owner. It’s a formal, written plan that describes the future of your business and how you intend to achieve it. A good business plan will help you stay on track, get funding if you need it, and avoid costly mistakes as you navigate through choppy waters in this industry. 

We know what you’re thinking – that a business plan is a monster of a document that will take a ton of time to create. But, it doesn’t have to be. In fact, you can pare it down to one page and still have an effective, clear document that outlines everything you (and any other interested parties) need to know about your new salon. Below are six steps to writing a salon business plan that will ensure your success.

Here are six steps to creating your salon business plan:

  • Create an Executive Summary
  • Map Out Your Branding Vision
  • Research Your Industry
  • Create a Client Acquisition Strategy
  • Management and Operations
  • Financial Planning

Let's dive deeper into each one.

1. Create an Executive Summary

The executive summary is the first section of your business and management plan and provides a brief overview of your salon business. This section should include your mission statement , business objectives, target market, products and beauty services, and financial projections. It should be concise, engaging, and compelling to grab the attention of potential investors, lenders, or partners. It also serves to clarify your goals so you can come back to them anytime you need a refresher or wish to update this information.

Your executive summary is just that: a summary. This means you do not have to get into every detail in this section; you’ll provide a more complete analysis in the individual sections of your business plan. Here are some key elements to include in the executive summary:

  • An opening “hook.” The first sentence or two of your executive summary needs to draw in the reader; otherwise, your business plan might not get the attention it deserves. Grab your audience’s attention by sharing a compelling fact about your company, a memorable story related to your industry, or some other well-crafted description of your business that will make your business plan stand out.
  • Summary of your business. Describe what your company does, what services and products you will offer, who will run the company, and other high-level details.
  • Market analysis. Briefly describe the market landscape for your own salon to show there is a proven need for your services. Be sure to address who your competitors are, any advantages you have compared with others, and any research you’ve conducted to demonstrate there is a demand for your services in the area. 
  • Products and services. Highlight the specific services your salon will offer, any products you will sell, and any other information showing that your salon will fill the need you’ve described in your market analysis summary – and how you’ll do it better than the competition.
  • Financial information and projections. Give your reader an overview of your business financials, including any current sales and profits, the funding amount you’re looking to acquire or any funding you already have, and your projections for growth.
  • Future plans. Tell your reader exactly how you plan to use any funds you acquire and how their investment could pay off. Imagine where you want your business to be in a year, five years, and so on. Make it clear how funding will help you get there.

2. Map Out Your Branding Vision

Branding isn’t just about creating a unique identity for your business; it’s also about helping people connect with that identity and remember your name anytime they need your services. Branding helps both current clients and new customers recognize who you are and why they would want to seek out your salon. In your business plan, be sure to map out your branding vision by including:

  • A description of your salon business. Describe who you are and what you do.
  • Your mission and vision statement. Briefly summarize why your salon should exist, its primary objective, and how you plan to achieve your goals.
  • An overview of your products and services, your pricing strategy, and any unique features or benefits that differentiate your salon from others in the market. Discuss the specific services you will offer and their price points, plus any product lines you will carry, such as hair care products, makeup, or skincare.
  • A description of the target audience and customer demographics. Include relevant research on your market and the people who will buy what you’re offering.

3. Research Your Industry

This section should include a market analysis that provides an in-depth look at the salon industry, including trends, customer demographics, competition, and opportunities. It should also identify your target market and describe how you plan to reach them. This section should demonstrate your knowledge of the market and your ability to capitalize on it, with details on:

  • The industry and trends. Provide an overview of the salon industry with relevant statistics, especially those that pertain to your area of expertise and geographic location.
  • Your competition. Conduct a competitive analysis to gain insights into your competition, their marketing strategies, and the services and products they offer. The goal is to show how you will capture market share using stronger business strategies that set you apart from your competitors.
  • Market segmentation. With market segmentation , you break down a larger target market into a smaller group of customers you plan to serve. Demographics such as age and income, geographic location, lifestyles or psychographics, and behavioral factors like price sensitivity or product loyalty are just a few approaches to market segmentation that you can consider for your business plan.
  • SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis is a way to assess your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. It's an effective method for identifying your business strengths and weaknesses as well as external factors that may affect the success of your salon business.

4. Create a Client Acquisition Strategy

The client acquisition section of your salon business plan should describe how you plan to attract and retain customers as a hairstylist . It should outline your advertising and promotional strategies, such as social media marketing , SMS marketing , email marketing, and referral programs. This section should also discuss your sales strategy, including how you plan to increase sales and generate revenue.

  • Description of marketing channels and tactics . Outline the different channels you will use to generate leads, such as social media, blog articles, emails, and text messages. 
  • Sales forecasting and projections. Discuss how you will convert leads into clients, nurture them through the pipeline, and retain a loyal clientele. Include a realistic estimate of the quantity of goods and services you can sell within the forecast period (for example, monthly, quarterly, and annually). For a salon business, it’s helpful to determine the customer lifetime value of your typical client as well as the customer acquisition cost. You can then break down this number for the forecast period to determine the costs and sales projections.
  • Customer acquisition and retention strategies. Include which strategies you will use and the associated costs, such as pay-per-click (PPC), search engine optimization (SEO), and paid ads on social media. Describe how you will retain customers – for example, through loyalty programs and responses to feedback and reviews on social media and Google. ‍
  • Pricing strategy. It’s critical that you price your services and products competitively to drive revenue and profits. Detail the pricing strategy you plan to implement based on your buyer persona and competitive analysis. The strategy could be based on a variety of factors, but geographic location and local competition will likely be the biggest factors dictating your salon pricing strategy.

5. Management and Operations

The management and staffing section of your salon business plan should describe the organizational structure of your salon, including the roles and responsibilities of each staff member. It should also discuss your hiring and training practices, employee benefits , and compensation plans. This section should demonstrate your ability to attract and retain a skilled and motivated team, with information on your:

  • Organizational structure. Spell out who runs the show and who reports to whom.
  • Management team and staff. If you plan to hire a manager , look for someone who has experience in the industry and understands what it takes to run a salon. This person should also have good people skills and be able to work well with others.
  • Business operations and processes. Consider which other support personnel you will need, such as an accountant and a dedicated marketing specialist. Don’t be a hero; you can’t do it all alone. ‍
  • Legal and regulatory requirements. Include information on any legal advice you will employ to stay compliant with local, state, and federal guidelines.

Note that with GlossGenius, you can manage your team and collaborate with them to make your operations run more smoothly. Our software helps you delegate, mentor, and partner with others based on customizable permissions that let you grant as much or as little access as you wish. Easily manage your scheduling, booking, commissions, and reporting from one intuitive dashboard.

6. Financial Planning

Financial planning is a crucial section to include in any salon business plan. A cash flow forecast shows the anticipated amount of money coming into the business, as well as what you will spend on expenses. It also projects growth over time, which allows you to make predictions about future revenue and expenses so that you can better plan for them in advance.

The best way to get started with your financial projections is by creating an income statement (also called a profit and loss statement), which breaks down all income sources by category (e.g., retail sales and commissions), along with their associated costs (e.g., salaries). This will help provide insight into where your profits are coming from as well as areas where they could improve. Here are some key areas to cover in your salon business and marketing plan:

  • Revenue and expense projections. Your revenue projections should consider the number of clients you expect to serve, as well as the average price per service. Your expense projections should reflect all costs associated with running your salon, such as utilities, rent, and supplies.
  • Capital requirements and funding sources. Detail how much money you need to start and run your small business, including all costs associated with opening the salon. Describe the funding sources that you intend to use for starting your salon business, whether from personal funds, salon loans , or investors.
  • Break-even analysis and profitability projections. A break-even analysis is a financial tool that shows how much revenue you need in order to cover your fixed costs (rent, utilities, etc.) and variable costs (such as salons supplies and staff wages). Profitability projections show how much profit you expect from your salon business for each year of operation. This is based on your estimates of revenue and expenses. You can use this information when seeking funding from investors or lenders.
  • Financial ratios and metrics. A financial ratio is a measurement of the relationship between two numbers, usually expressed as a percentage or a fraction. For example, the working capital ratio compares your current assets to liabilities; this metric allows you to measure liquidity. Include the appropriate ratios and metrics in your business to demonstrate your company’s financial health.

A well-written salon business plan is essential for the success of your business. It provides a roadmap for achieving your business goals, attracting investors, and securing funding. By following the tips outlined in this article, you can write the best business plan for your salon and ensure your salon’s success!

Benefits of a hair salon business plan

By the end, you'll have a good handle on your startup and operating costs. Don't forget to factor into this the cost of opening a business, starting an LLC for example.

Drawing up your game plan : Think of your business plan as your playbook for success. It lays out the steps to make your salon thrive, helps you set achievable goals and gives you a roadmap for reaching them. Plus, it's got your back when it comes to handling challenges, with strategies to tackle whatever comes your way.

Outshining the competition : While creating your plan, you'll dive deep into your salon's market and competitors. That research helps you understand your customers, spot industry trends and figure out how to stand out from the competition.

Running a smooth ship : Your business plan isn't just about the big picture—it's also about the nitty-gritty details. It helps you plan things like where your salon should be located, how it should look, what equipment to get and how to manage your staff effectively.

Playing it safe: In the financial part of your plan, you'll lay out your salon's expected income, expenses, and profits. This not only helps you see if your business will make money but also prepares you to make smart financial decisions. Plus, it's your insurance against unexpected bumps in the road.

6 steps to creating a hair salon business plan

Let's dissect the key components of a hair salon business plan:

Executive summary

Business and domain names

Market analysis and research

Operations plan

Marketing and advertising plan

Financial plan

01. Executive summary

The executive summary is a concise overview of your entire hair salon business plan. It provides a snapshot of your business concept, strategies, financial projections and objectives. While it appears at the beginning of the plan, it's often written after the rest of the plan is complete to ensure all crucial details are included.

To write a clear executive summary for a hair salon business be sure to introduce your hair salon, detailing the services you offer and the unique value proposition that sets you apart in the industry. Then clearly state your short-term and long-term business goals. These should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound (SMART).

Remember to highlight what differentiates your hair salon from competitors, whether it's your exceptional stylists, innovative services or a specific niche you cater to. Als, provide a brief overview of the target market you're aiming to serve and the market demand for your services.

Offer a glimpse of your projected financials, including expected revenue, expenses and profitability within a specified timeframe. Additionally, include how much investment you're seeking or have secured to launch and grow your hair salon business.

Example of an executive summary for a hair salon business

"EleganceTresses Salon is poised to transform the hair care experience in the city. With a mission to blend style and artistry, we offer a range of premium hairstyling and beauty services that cater to a diverse clientele. Our SMART objectives include becoming the go-to destination for modern hair transformations, increasing customer retention by 20% in the first year and expanding our salon footprint to two additional locations within three years. What sets us apart is our team of master stylists, led by industry veterans with over 15 years of combined experience. We're seeking an initial investment of $250,000 to support salon setup, staff training and salon marketing initiatives . Our projected revenue of $500,000 in the first year, coupled with strategic partnerships, positions EleganceTresses Salon for rapid growth and profitability."

02. Business and domain names

Naming your business is crucial, as it will become an integral part of your brand identity. A memorable and relevant name enhances brand recognition and establishes trust with your customers. A business name generator can provide inspiration for a beauty business name that resonates with your salon's concept and values.

Selecting and registering a suitable domain name is equally important. Ensure your domain name aligns with your salon's name or services as this consistency makes it easier for customers to find you online.

Opt for a domain name that is simple to spell and remember and avoid using complex words or excessive characters. As part of this, if feasible, incorporate relevant keywords in your domain name to improve search engine visibility. Finally, check domain registration platforms to confirm your chosen domain name's availability.

Learn more about registering your business , which you’ll want to do once you’ve landed on a business name and a legal structure.

03. Market analysis and research

The market analysis and research section of a business plan is essential for understanding the competitive landscape and consumer preferences in the hair salon industry. This information forms the foundation of your business strategy.

Define your target audience based on demographics, lifestyles and hair care preferences.

Evaluate competing salons' offerings, pricing, location and customer reviews to identify gaps and opportunities.

Research industry trends, emerging styles and customer demands to align your beauty business ideas and services with current market expectations.

04. Operations plan

The operations plan details the practical aspects of running your hair salon. It covers location selection, salon design, equipment procurement and staffing.

Location: Describe how you'll choose a high-traffic, accessible location that caters to your target audience.

Interior design: Highlight your salon's ambiance, decor and layout to create a welcoming and appealing environment.

Equipment: Specify the types of equipment and products you'll use to provide top-notch services.

Staffing: Detail your staffing needs, including hairstylists, receptionists and other support roles and outline their qualifications.

Operation plans example:

"Our salon will be strategically situated in a bustling shopping district, attracting both locals and tourists. The interior design will exude contemporary elegance, featuring comfortable seating, modern decor and ample natural light. We'll invest in premium hairstyling equipment and a range of high-quality products to ensure exceptional services. Our staff will consist of experienced stylists specializing in diverse hair types and styles."

05. Marketing and advertising plan

The marketing and advertising plan outlines how you'll promote your hair salon, attract customers and build brand recognition. This can include marketing campaigns tailored to different customer segments, such as bridal packages, seasonal promotions or loyalty programs. Be sure to highlight how you'll utilize social media, a business website and online advertising to engage with customers and showcase your services.

Example of a marketing plan

"Our marketing strategy entails a mix of social media engagement and influencer partnerships. We'll leverage platforms like Instagram and Pinterest to showcase before-and-after transformations, share hairstyling tips and engage with our audience. Collaborating with local boutiques for joint promotions will enhance our visibility while offering special packages for bridal parties will establish us as a bridal hair expert."

06. Financial plan

The financial plan section of your business plan provides insights into the financial aspects of your hair salon business. It will need to include a rundown of your initial expenses such as salon setup, equipment purchase, interior decor and initial marketing efforts.

After this, you'll need to estimate projected revenue based on services offered, pricing and anticipated customer volume. At the same time, document ongoing costs, including rent, utilities, staffing salaries, product replenishment and marketing expenditures.

Then lay out the initial investment you'll need and potential sources of funding, such as personal savings, loans or investors.

It’s also important to project when your hair salon is expected to become profitable based on revenue growth and expense management.

Example of a financial plan

"Startup costs are estimated at $120,000, covering salon setup, equipment and marketing campaigns. We project an annual revenue of $300,000 within the first year, with a steady increase of 15% in subsequent years. Operating expenses, including rent, staff salaries and product inventory, are projected at $180,000 annually. We anticipate becoming profitable by the end of Year 2."

How To Create A Hair Salon Business Plan in 2024 (with Template)

Title Card - How To Create A Hair Salons Business Plan

Starting any kind of business comes with inherent risks.

Many fail in the first year due to mismanagement of finances, lack of brand awareness, or for shifts in the market.

If you’re going to pick a business to get into, it’s never a bad time to open a hair salon . In 2018, hair salons brought in over 46 billion dollars in revenue in the United States. That’s a little less than the entire GDP of the country of Costa Rica.

Needless to say, there’s a lot of opportunity in the hair salon industry. If you’re ready to grab your piece of that 46 billion dollar pie, then you’re going to need a business plan.

Here’s a complete guide to creating a business plan for your new hair salon:

Step-By-Step Instructions to Writing Your Hair Salon Business Plan

A business plan is a crucial step to starting any business. Creating one is an opportunity to put your thoughts, ideas, and goals down on paper and mold them into something more tangible.

Creating a business plan might feel like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be if you break it down into smaller steps like these:

1. Write your executive summary

The executive summary is the first page of your business plan and acts as a first impression. Get it right, and people will dig in with enthusiasm. Get it wrong, and you may not get a fighting chance.

At its core, the executive summary elaborates on the focus of your business. It tries to sum everything in a page or less. At a minimum, it’ll include:

  • Mission statement
  • Ownership structure
  • Product and service descriptions
  • Business plan summary

In plain terms, it says what you hope to achieve, who’s involved, what makes your salon unique, and what value you’ll bring to your customers.

2. Company description

It may feel like you’re repeating yourself from here on out, and you will be to a degree, but it’ll be to bring context to all the details that will follow. You’ll be reiterating the points from your executive summary, but further elaborate to give the reader the juicy details.

With the company description, you’re wanting to provide a snapshot of what people would see if they walked into your salon. You’ll offer up some crucial details like the registered name of the business, history of the company, name of key employees, and your location. In addition, you’ll answer some important questions such as:

  • Are you explicitly cutting hair? Or are you offering hairstyling services as well?
  • How about conditioning treatments, blowouts, and hair extensions?
  • Will you stop at head hair, or will you offer waxing, eyelash, and eyebrow treatments as well?
  • How about products? Will you sell your styling creams, sprays, and shampoo?

Again, the more detail here, the better because you’re trying to sell an image of the salon at its best.

3. Business goals

Every company, big or small, should have goals. Ideally, they should be specific goals. SMART goals even. SMART stands for specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. A SMART goal for opening and running a hair salon might be:

“ Host a grand opening event over the July 4th weekend that adds 150 people to our email newsletter.”

That’s a short-term goal that’s specific and measurable because you’re measuring email captures. It’s time-bound because of the July 4th date, and it’s relevant and attainable because it helps with marketing efforts and isn’t a farfetched number like 10,000 sign-ups on an open weekend.

In the business goals section, you’ll want to spell out what you’d like to accomplish in the near term and in the long term as well. If you’re seeking investor capital or outside funding, you’ll also explain what exactly you need the money for and how and when you’ll plan to recuperate those funds. This could include expanding locations or service offerings, for example.

4. Business management structure

This one is a bit more straightforward because it’s black and white. Your business management structure is something you’ll likely set and forget since it won’t change much. Here, you’ll add a breakdown of who the owners are, what experience they have in the industry, and what legal structure you’ve adopted (LLC, S Corp, etc.).

You’ll also want to outline how many employees you’ll have to start, ownership percentages, and the duties and responsibilities of each role. Getting this sorted out is not only good for investors, but for you as well since it’s possible you’ll have disputes over these decisions later.

5. Product and service offering

In the previous steps, you’ve alluded to what makes you unique and what services you’ll offer, but now it’s time to get even more detailed. It’s not enough to say you’ll offer blowouts, hair coloring, and sell hair products. Tons of salons do that. You want to impress people with how you’ll differentiate yourself.

To illustrate the point, here are some ways a salon could differentiate itself:

  • Using all homemade organic products that you can’t find anywhere else
  • Bringing in wine from a local vineyard to offer for free to salon patrons
  • Offering same-day in-home appointments
  • Providing free headshots with all appointments

The possibilities are truly endless. Here’s also where you’ll get into pricing, profit margins, and how you’ll receive and possibly distribute the products you’ll use at your salon.

6. Marketing plan

With a new salon, you’ve got to get the word out as soon as possible to bring customers in. Your marketing plan will explain exactly how you’ll build brand awareness. It may even talk about your grand opening.

You’ll need a section on how you’ll develop customer loyalty as well. Will you leverage mailing lists? How about frequent buyer incentives? The more concrete your marketing plan, the more confidence you’ll gain from investors, banks, and employees.

7. Business financials

A good hair salon business plan will provide all the numbers you need to ensure you have the runway to launch and sustain operations while bringing in new customers. It’ll show investors the starting financial health of your business and how you plan to reinvest funds back into the business and repay debts.

Here, you’ll include net profit margins, current liquidity, and accounts receivable turnover ratios . Those specifically tell investors how much profit you’ll keep, how easily you’ll be able to repay debts, and how often you’ll collect on your own debts.

8. Future financial projections

Your goals would ideally be aggressive, but realistic. While you may not create more business plans for your salon, you’ll want to keep up with creating monthly and quarterly financial reports.

They’ll outline expenses, revenue, profit, and provide confidence to your leaders and your investors that things are on track.

9. Appendix

Last, but not least, you’ll include an appendix section for the stuff that doesn’t fit elsewhere. For a salon, this could mean licenses, permit history, contracts, leases, resumes for key employees, credit history, and anything else that comes to mind.

Starting a salon is an exciting adventure that’ll be filled with both ups and downs. The ups will come and go, but being prepared for the down moments is important. That’s where a business plan comes in handy.

Creating a Successful Salon Business Plan: A Step-by-Step Guide

Jovana Smoljanovic Tucakov

  • January 23, 2024
  • For Salon Owners

illustration of a salon business plan

If you plan to open a salon, besides setting the objectives, you’ll need to know how you’re going to achieve them. Or, in other words, you need a sound salon business plan.

Creating a salon business plan can help you identify specific goals and strategies, as well as provide guidance on how you can reach them and see your business thrive. Knowing how to craft your plan is vital, as it can easily make or break your salon business.

This article will walk you through how to create a salon business plan step-by-step.

Why is a Salon Business Plan so Important?

What is a salon business plan.

A salon business plan is a formal, written statement of the goals you want to set for your business. It explains why you want to set those goals and what your plan is for reaching them. A salon business plan might also include information about the individuals or teams working toward those goals with you.

A good salon business plan gives an overview of where your business is at now and explains where you want to be in the future. It also includes marketing information and research that impact your business plan in general. In fact, think of your salon business plan as a road map where you show where you are now and explain where you’re headed and what it will take to get there.

As you build your salon business plan, it’s important to include information about the process of opening your salon. This information is important because, right from the get-go, you lay the groundwork for success. This groundwork then helps you run and grow your salon business .

Why is a business plan essential for the success of your salon?

A salon business plan is an essential tool for the growth and success of any salon. It is important as it helps you to jot down your ideas and thoughts, arrange them in an organized manner, and develop an overall plan to implement them.

Writing a salon business plan also enables you to identify potential difficulties and challenges that may arise in the future. Once you’ve identified them, you can create a strategy to address them.

Benefits of having a sound salon business plan

A well-crafted salon business plan comes with many benefits:

  • A Greater Success Rate : A good business plan allows you to mitigate risks, make better-informed decisions, and improve your chances of running a successful salon.
  • Better Financial Management : A well-written salon business plan includes your budget, financial projections, and expense management. This helps you keep tabs on your salon’s financial health, which leads to financially sound decisions.
  • Improved Marketing Strategies : A sound business plan requires you to conduct market research and develop marketing strategies. Then you can identify your target market, predict customer preferences, and adjust your marketing efforts to be more effective.
  • Increased Operational Efficiency : A salon business plan ensures that you implement efficient operational processes. This allows your salon to keep running smoothly and leads to increased customer satisfaction.

How to Write a Salon Business Plan in Just 12 Steps

  • Write an executive summary
  • Create effective mission and vision statements
  • Include a salon business description
  • Analyze the market and identify your target audience
  • Check what your competitors are up to
  • Identify products and services you wish to offer
  • Craft a sound financial plan
  • Tackle management and organization
  • Plan your everyday operations
  • Think about your marketing strategy
  • Think about sales
  • Don’t forget to include risks

1. Write an Executive Summary

An executive summary explains what your salon is like and why it is successful. In most cases, a potential investor would go straight to this section to get an idea of what the business is like. If the executive summary isn’t interesting or compelling, they won’t read any further. That makes it an essential section and the first step when writing your salon business plan.

The executive summary should include information that is relevant to stockholders or investors. Include details about your target market, business objectives, and financial projections. Don’t forget to add information about your products and service menu, as well as your vision and mission. The main idea is to let the reader know what’s up, grab their attention, and make them want to keep reading.

Key components

An executive summary of every salon business plan should include the following information:

Business overview : Introduce the reader to your salon. Include information like the name and location, and a brief description of your core values, vision, and mission.

Market analysis : Provide a summary of your research on your target market. Include details about the target market’s trends and demographics. Then highlight gaps or opportunities in the market that you plan to capitalize on.

Your business objectives : Clearly identify your business goals and state what you want your salon to achieve. This might include details like expansion plans, revenue targets, or customer acquisition goals. In this section, you can include any goals that will affect your salon’s growth and success .

Products and Service menu : Give a brief overview of what your salon offers. Make sure your unique features and competitive advantages stand out. Explain what your salon is doing to meet the needs of the target market.

Marketing strategies : Explain your marketing strategy. This includes information about advertising, branding, social media, and so on. If you have any original ideas for how to make your salon stand out from the competition, make sure to highlight them.

Your financial projections : Provide a detailed financial plan overview. Include any information about profit targets, expenses budget, and revenue forecasts. Highlight any achievements or milestones you have reached that prove the financial viability of your salon.

Any funding requirements : Clearly explain the funding requirements for your salon. Explain how much funding you need, how you will use the funds and any other potential sources of funds you have.

2. Create Effective Mission and Vision Statements

A mission statement is a short explanation of why you created your salon, what your goal is, and how you want to achieve it. Your mission statement is an important part of your salon business plan, so it should be the first thing you see on the page. It’s a good idea to put it at the top of the page where you and others can see it and be reminded of your purpose.

The mission statement gives you the chance to express your purpose and intention. It not only explains why you started the salon, but it also explains what you have to offer. It shows what sets you apart from the competitor salons and captures the spirit with which you run your salon.

In just a few words, your mission statement can determine what drives your business.

Defining your purpose and aspirations

Part of the purpose of a mission statement is to define your purpose and what you offer. Your purpose is the reason you exist and what you have to offer potential customers. To get an idea of what your mission statement should include, ask yourself “Why does my salon exist?”

A vision statement serves a similar purpose. It explains where you want to take your business and what you hope to achieve. It defines your goals and the future impact you want to have. To identify the key points that will go into your vision statement, ask yourself “Where do I see my salon in the future?”

Putting your purpose and your long-term goals in writing plays an important role in having a successful business plan.

How to craft mission and vision statements

Here are a few examples of things you can consider when you are writing your mission statement and your vision statement. This will help you come up with ideas that reflect your identity and direction as a salon.

  • Have a brainstorming session with your team. Ask them “What do you think makes this salon unique? What do you love about working here? What do you personally want to achieve?”
  • Identify core values. What specific values do you want to uphold in everything you do? Some examples of core values are: creativity, integrity, excellence, diversity, and
  • Put your mission statement in writing. Use your core values as a starting point. Then write a short, simple sentence that sums up your salon’s purpose and what you offer to clients.
  • Write your vision statement. Write a short, inspiring sentence that describes your long-term goals for the salon and what you want to achieve.
  • Review and refine. Once you have your mission and vision statements written down, take some time to review them. Make sure your statements are both clear and concise, as well as compelling.

In case you need a bit of help, take a look at some brilliant salon mission statement examples sure to inspire you.

Also, writing an effective slogan will only underline the message you wish to send, so make sure you have one ready.

3. Include a Salon Business Description

Company description.

A company description is a quick overview of your business that explains the core values of your company. This part of your salon business plan is all about giving a quick and simple rundown to the readers. It’s meant to give them a general idea of what your business is all about.

Outlining the details

Your salon business description provides all the basic details about your salon. You should include the name of your salon, the location, and your contact information. Also, include the details about the legal structure of your salon. This information is the foundation of the rest of your business description. Thus, it’s important that the information is accurate and up to date.

Company history and brand story

In this section, you should provide some information about the background and history of your salon. When was your business founded? What led to you starting your business? Whatever your story is, this section is your chance to tell it.

Describe what you offer and your USP

This section details what your clients can expect to find at your salon. You can use this section to provide details about new beauty products or services you are offering. If you are working on your own line of products, this is also a good place to mention it and provide an estimated timeline for when it will be available.

Your salon’s USP (unique selling proposition) is what makes your salon stand out from the rest of the market. It is very important to highlight your USP in your business description.

4. Analyze the Market and Identify Your Target Audience

The market analysis shows that you’ve put some serious thought into your target audience. You’ve also done some research to find out what the competitors are missing out on. What’s more, it shows that you really know your area and have made some changes to your approach to fit in.

When you identify and analyze your potential clients, you are better able to adjust your marketing strategy to catch their eye.

Conducting market research

Market research means collecting data about the needs, preferences, and behavior of potential clients. Then you analyze this data. Market research helps you identify who your target market is and what their expectations and needs are. Based on these findings, you can create a marketing strategy that is appealing to that audience in particular.

Conducting market research also helps you identify who your competition is. Knowing this helps you get a good idea of reasonable pricing and ideal locations. Factoring this information in helps you gain and retain clients.

Here are some ideas on how you can make the entire process more interactive and fun (both for you and the participants):

Salon pop-up surveys

Set up a pop-up booth or station near popular local spots and events. Engage with passersby, offering quick surveys with a fun incentive like discount coupons for your salon. This allows you to gather diverse opinions and attract potential customers .

Instagram polls and stories

Leverage the interactive features of social media. Use Instagram polls and stories to ask your followers about their favorite salon experiences, desired services, or beauty trends. Encourage them to share their thoughts and tag friends for a chance to win a free service.

Salon open house events

Host an open house event at your salon. Invite the local community to explore your space, meet your staff, and participate in live demonstrations or mini-makeovers. Use the opportunity to collect feedback and preferences directly from attendees.

Collaborative mood boards

Create collaborative mood boards or Pinterest boards where clients and potential clients can contribute their favorite hairstyles, colors, and beauty inspirations. This not only gathers valuable insights but also fosters a sense of community and involvement.

Beauty trend workshops

Organize workshops on the latest beauty trends. Invite participants to share their thoughts on emerging styles and treatments. This not only serves as a research platform but also positions your salon as a trendsetter in the community.

Community surveys with prizes

Distribute physical or digital surveys within the local community, emphasizing the importance of their opinions. Include a prize draw or a special discount for survey participants, encouraging more people to contribute.

Interactive social media challenges

Create engaging challenges on social media platforms, encouraging followers to share their favorite salon experiences or dream makeover ideas. Use a unique hashtag to track responses and offer prizes for the most creative entries.

Beauty polls and quizzes

Develop entertaining online polls or quizzes related to beauty and salon preferences. Share these on your website and social media to capture audience insights while providing a fun and interactive experience.

By infusing creativity and engagement into your market research efforts, you not only gather valuable information but also strengthen the connection between your salon and the community. The more interactive and enjoyable the process, the more likely you are to receive enthusiastic and authentic responses from your audience.

Identifying behaviors, demographics, and preferences

Once you have information on your target market you can use it to better understand them. Here are a few things to look at:

The behavior of your target market. This refers to the way clients make purchasing decisions, their brand loyalties, and other similar behaviors. In general, behaviors can include anything that affects a client’s decision-making process.

Demographics refer to the characteristics of your potential clients.

Geographic location, educational background, and income can all impact the way clients respond to your marketing strategy.

Even the age and gender of the people you want to draw in can affect which strategies you use. Understanding this will help you create a marketing plan that resonates with the clientele you want to attract.

Then you have to factor in the preferences of your target market. What do they like and dislike? What kinds of ambiance are they drawn to? Which salon services are most popular with this group? What are their thoughts on pricing? What do they look for in customer service? All these factors play their part in whether or not a potential customer chooses your salon.

Client analysis

This part of your salon business plan is all about who your potential clients are. Depending on where your salon is, you might get certain types of people coming in. Or, it might be a mix of different types. You need to include details about who your market is made up of and what they’re like.

Here are a few things involved in conducting a client analysis for your salon:

  • Define the scope and the objective of the analysis. Include information about the services and products, the time frame, and the area your customers are coming from.
  • Collect data from a variety of sources and analyze. You can use surveys, online reviews, industry reports, interviews, and social media, as well as other sources.
  • Identify specific customer groups. This includes demographics, needs, and behaviors.
  • Create a profile for each customer group. Include descriptions of preferences, characteristics, expectations, and motivations.
  • Evaluate the salon’s current performance. How are you doing with customer retention, satisfaction, and loyalty? How much is your salon profiting?
  • Identify specific areas where you can improve customer relationships.

5. Check What Your Competitors Are Up To

A competitive analysis explains your plan for your salon to dominate the market. It is important for your competitive analysis to give a brief explanation of the existing competitors. This can include direct competition, like another salon, or indirect competition. The indirect competition includes any other option for clients to receive the products or services you offer. In this section of your salon business plan, you can bring out the strengths and weaknesses of your competition and explain how your target market views them.

Knowing your competition will help you determine what your own advantages are. Then you can capitalize on those advantages to attract and keep more customers. Once you can pinpoint your unique strengths, you are better equipped to carve out your own place in the market. It will give you a starting point to work from to identify a new way to attract customers. It may also help you find something unique to offer that no one else in the area is offering.

Conducting a SWOT analysis

To be able to succeed and stand out from the competition, it is helpful to carry out a SWOT analysis . SWOT is an acronym for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. This analysis will help you diagnose the factors that play a role in the potential and performance of your competition.

What are the strengths of your competitors? Maybe a competing salon has a good reputation and a strong brand. Perhaps they offer a wide range of services or have a skillful team. They might have a good relationship with their suppliers, offer a clean and welcoming atmosphere, or have an optimal location.

What are their weaknesses? Perhaps they offer a limited number of services or have staff that lacks experience. They might be struggling with high overhead costs or have a difficult location. Or they may be on the losing end of high competition and/or struggle to maintain customer loyalty.

Opportunities for a salon include expansion opportunities or new services and products. Other opportunities include increased online presence, partnering opportunities, or new technology and trends.

What is a threat to a salon? Economic recessions, loss of customers to the competition, and negative reviews all threaten the success of a salon. Other threats include supply chain disruptions, legal problems, and environmental and health risks.

6. Identify Products and Services You Wish to Offer

This part of your salon business plan lays out all the different services that your salon will offer its customers. You can expect a wide range of services, from haircuts, styling, coloring, treatments, manicures, pedicures, facials, and many more. Each service is described in detail, including the techniques used, expected results, and pricing structure. We’ve also got a great selection of salon products that you can buy, like hair care items, skincare products, and beauty accessories.

By providing a comprehensive overview of the salon’s products and services, we’re showing that we’re committed to meeting all our customers’ needs and preferences. We want to make sure everyone feels welcome and satisfied with their experience at our salon. This sets the stage for a successful and thriving salon business.

7. Craft a Sound Financial Plan

financial section, as an integral part of a salon business plan

Here is where you provide details about the financial history, budget, and projections for your salon. Any potential investors or lenders will be especially interested in this section of your salon business plan.

When writing this section, you should include your financial plan for your salon for the next 3-5 years, as well as your financial history going back 3-5 years. If the salon has income, include financial statements. You should also include potential funding sources and your plan for keeping your salon running.

A good budget is the foundation for any effective financial plan. A budget allows you to distribute resources like time and funds effectively. A good budget also allows you to make better decisions about saving and spending and set goals for your finances.

Start by identifying all the sources of income for your salon. This includes product sales, service fees, and so on. Then identify all the expenses your salon has, like rent, salaries, supplies, and other operational costs. You could make a category for expenses that are always the same, like rent, and another for expenses that vary from month to month, like supplies. This might help you to see patterns and identify areas where you could cut back on some costs.

Once you have identified all your income and expenses, then you can set goals. From time to time, check your progress against your budget to see how you are doing and if you can make any further adjustments.

Income streams

Adding income streams is a good way to increase revenue. The following are a few options you could explore:

  • Subscriptions : Charge fees for a set period of time instead of per transaction.
  • Advertising : Promote certain brands in-store and online.
  • Freemium plans : Certain services are free and “premium” services cost extra.
  • Third-party licensing : Give third parties the right to use or sell your patented products.
  • Renting or Leasing : Rent out assets (for example, real estate or products) for a price.

As you create your financial projections, factor in the demand in the market and the volume of customers. You should also include your pricing strategy for the products and services you offer. It would be helpful to go back and review your sales history. Then you can isolate specific trends. This will help you make more sound financial decisions moving forward. It would also be helpful to you to do some research on the current market.

Alternative funding options

There are a variety of options when it comes to alternative funding sources for your salon. Each option has pros and cons. Some options include loans, grants, crowdfunding, or partnerships.

Loans may offer somewhat low interest rates. However, it’s important to find out what they require for collateral or how strict the repayment terms are.

Grants can offer funds that you don’t have to repay, but they might have strict eligibility requirements and limits on how you can use the funds.

Crowdfunding can get you funds from a pool of investors, but it might mean sharing control or ownership of your salon.

Partnerships can get you access to extra capital and more expertise. On the downside, partnerships can mean profit-sharing. You may also have to consult with your partners before you make decisions.

Expense management

If you want your salon business plan to have success, it is vital that you manage your expenses carefully. To maximize your earnings, you have to optimize your expenses and control the costs your salon faces. This is the only way to make sure that your salon remains financially stable.

Regularly review your expenses and identify ways to cut costs without sacrificing quality. Be on the lookout for chances to negotiate better deals on supplies and cut out unnecessary expenses. For example, could you choose equipment that is more energy efficient? Is there a way you could maximize the lifespan of the products you use and cut back on supply costs?

Hiring freelancers or contractors

Hiring a contractor or freelancer can have a lot of benefits. These independent professionals can provide you with the expertise you need to do a specific project or task. Some of the benefits they offer include:

  • Saving on Costs: Hiring contractors and freelancers can save you money on payroll taxes, training, benefits, and more. You pay for the work they do and depending on your needs you can adjust your budget.
  • Greater flexibility: You hire contractors and freelancers only as you need them and for as long as you need. You can adjust the scale of your team depending on the demand of the project and their availability.
  • Expertise: Freelancers and contractors bring in fresh ideas and perspectives. Their knowledge of the industry is also an asset to your salon business. They can also carry out tasks that are beyond your skill set or that require special equipment and tools.

8. Tackle Management and Organization

The management and organization plan is the backbone of your salon business plan. It shows how your salon will operate and reach its goals. This section gives an in-depth look at the salon’s management team, including their qualifications, experience, and roles inside the salon. It also explains how the salon will be structured, how decisions will be made, and how different teams will work together.

By sharing a clear management and organization plan, your business plan shows that the salon has capable people and a well-structured system to make it in the competitive beauty industry.

9. Plan Your Everyday Operations
