About Me

Flattering wrap dresses

I love wearing wrap dresses. I think they are really flattering and they can be customised to perfectly fit and drape around your body. I also think they can be worn in a range of situations such as at the office or to a cocktail party depending on how they are accessorised and the type of fabric used on the dress. I can't buy all of the wrap dresses in the world, but I love to search for new options so I have started this blog to talk about all the dress options, like wraps, that you might enjoy. I hope you love what I find and share.

Follow These Tips to Set Up Your Home-Based Salon

If you have a passion for hair, skin care, makeup, and nails, you might be wanting to open your own salon. While opening a local salon is definitely an option, having a home-based salon has some definite perks. When you are thinking about starting your salon in your own home, follow these tips to make it successful.

Get the Legalities Out of the Way

Before you set up the salon, make sure you can legally have one in your home. This is location-specific as some areas will not approve of a salon from your home. Once you know whether or not you can have one, you then need to inquire about proper licensing and permits to run the salon. This may include getting a zoning permit, having a certain-sized space for the treatments, and getting not just a business license but showing your cosmetology license as well. Once all of this is out of the way, you won't have to worry about fines or legal issues later on.

Decide What Treatments to Offer

Some home-based salons only offer hair treatments, while others also provide manicures and pedicures, waxing, and skin treatments. This is entirely up to you based on your interests and skills. If you want to offer multiple treatments, you might want to have at least one or two employees to help out in case you get busy. With each of these treatments, decide on specifics, such as pricing and what products you will use. If you want to do mainly hair treatments, will you include hair straightening and hair colouring or just cutting and styling hair? Be as detailed as possible in order to expand on your business plan. Along with making these decisions, choose where you will buy your products.

Choose the Location in Your Home

This is where you really need to think about the treatments you are offering and what will be most comfortable for your customers. If you live alone, offering hairdressing services in your kitchen might be a good idea, but not if kids are constantly wanting your attention or dogs are running back and forth. If you have family at home, choose a quiet and private area in your home for your beauty treatments. This can either be a dedicated bedroom with plumbing access, a basement, or even in your garage if you can set it up to be a nice salon. A dedicated area is preferred since you have more space to work without distractions, and your customers have a more pleasing experience.

Get the Right Furniture and Equipment

While not as much as a local salon, home-based salons still require a good amount of money to get started. You need to have salon equipment and furniture to set up your salon, from a shampoo station to storage and sitting furniture. Have at least a couple areas with a table, mirror, and hairdressing chair to start with. These chairs swivel and adjust up and down so you can provide the best hair treatments possible. Also, consider whether you will need additional treatment areas, from relaxing massage chairs to give pedicures to extra space for waxing, self-tanning services, skin care treatments, or makeup application.
