5 Tips for Setting Up Your Own Salon in Your Home

5 Tips for Setting Up Your Own Salon in Your Home
Posted By: Dixie Somers on June 07, 2021

There are many reasons that you might be thinking about starting up a salon right in your home. You might be doing that because running a business from your home helps you save money, or you might be doing that for the convenience of it. Whatever your reasoning, you can create a comfortable salon in your home.

Decide Which Space in the Home is Going to be Dedicated to Salon Use



You need to have a dedicated space that you will use for your home salon. You don't want to use your family's living room as a haircutting station, and you don't want your children playing with your scissors and styling tools. Figure out which space in your home is going to work well as your new salon, and make sure that the space is used only for business and not for family activities.

Choose an Entrance That Your Clients Can Use



It is important for your clients to know where to go when they arrive at your home.



You need to figure out which door you want them to use, and you should put up signs that will help direct them to that door.

Figure Out Where Your Clients Will Be Able to Park



You need to have some sort of parking option available for your clients. If your street is one where vehicles are allowed to park and there are usually openings along it near your home, that might work well for your clients. If not, you might have to make space in your driveway or consider putting in a parking lot.

Keep Things Comfortable and Quiet for Your Clients



It is important for your clients to feel like they are at a salon and not just sitting in someone's home. You should work on making a space that is professional, comfortable, and quiet for your clients.

Don't Neglect to Invest in Good Chairs



Even though you are working out of your home, you still want your clients to have a comfortable chair that they can sit in. You want to give your clients the full salon experience by setting up salon chairs that they can sit in while having their hair cut and styled.

You can make a part of your home feel like a real salon. Think about your clients' needs as you work on creating a space for them that is professional and comfortable.
