Hair dressing is a career path that tempts immeasurable numbers of young people - there are currently around 245,795 employed in salons and barber shops in the UK. How many of them dream of owning their own hairdressing shop? Some may even be wishing they could follow in the footsteps of hair stylists who now have a global customer base and who are in demand by top celebrities.
Well, for the determined few, there are great ways to turn that dream into a reality. With over 40,000 hair, barbering and beauty businesses in the UK – generating revenue of £7 billion a year - clearly plenty have taken the plunge and become self-employed .
What is stopping you, and why is a hair salon or barbers franchise the best way to be your own boss?
Opening an independent hairdressing and barbering business can be complex and leaves you exposed to a lot of difficult decisions and hidden costs. Opening a barbers or hair salon franchise, however, means you are using a proven business model – a way of doing things that has already been fully tested. You get help on everything from finding the right location and getting planning permission, to welcoming your first clients through the door.
This often involves a vital website and other marketing help you will need, plus help with training and insurance issues. Equipment and product supplies will also come at favourable rates thanks to the buying power of your franchiser.
You have a wide choice of franchise packages to open your own barbers shop or hairdressers, depending at what level you want to go into the market, and your preferred geographical location.
This includes big names such as TONI&GUY and Saks hair and beauty, who both want to expand their UK network. Rush and Supercuts are also growing their UK locations, as is Headmasters. For a hair salon or barber franchise package that is a cut above the rest, contact us to find one that suits your interests and ambitions.
