Always wanted to set up your dream nail salon business but don’t know where to start? These 5 simple tips can help you do just that!
1. Start From The Bottom
Things to note include: [restrict]
- Hiring/Firing Processes
- Training Process
- Customer Packages
- Performance Reviews
- Inventory Management
- Document Organisation
2. Come Up With A Business Plan
Consider taking a personal loan from your local bank for start-up capital as well. Make sure that you have enough money to tide you over the first few months, which are the most likely months to make losses. There is no point entering the industry if you are short of cash. Remember, it is better to wait and accumulate capital rather than hold back on purchasing equipment and hiring staff.
3. Decide On A Good Location
Another important factor to note is parking space. If your nail salon is located in a row of shophouses, make sure that it is accessible via car and that parking space is abundant. This is less of a worry if your nail salon is in a mall.
4. What is your USP?
5. Hire Well
Consider what type of roles you need in your nail salon. Would you need a receptionist or could you handle client appointments yourself? Whereas manicurists, aestheticians, technicians and salon managers are non-negotiable.
From these roles, place positions on your local job portal and local newspaper to acquire candidates. These candidates not only have to be passionate about serving and extremely customer oriented, but also have skill. But don’t hire on resume alone! Test them by letting them showcase their skills to you. This is especially important in the nail salon industry where the technical skills of your staff will determine the level of satisfaction from your customer.
