Personal care and pampering is something we all need. If you’re an entrepreneur, the world of the beauty salon has some surprising advantages. To begin with, it’s largely immune to the trend toward ecommerce since beauty salons provide hyper-localized personalized services. Secondly, if you provide great service, you will quickly develop an excellent reputation that will lead to repeat bookings.
Finally, there’s a trend toward buying “experiences” rather than “products,” and the beauty salon fits very neatly into this new way of thinking and purchasing. All that said, starting up a beauty salon business can be tricky. There may be local competition, and you'll need to invest in finding skilled workers and developing an excellent brand.
