Hi, im contemplating buying and managing a salon... taking on my current client base there and hiring one or two others (including one more experienced than myself) to run it day to day etc...

I dont want to be one of those that goes out and buys a salon as soon as they've passed, and so will wait until next year to do so (if i do), when i will have 7 years experience in hair extensions and 2 in hairdressing... and i will be treaing it more as a business investment to start with.  This also gives me a year to develope a business plan and see if its all feasible.

Anyways... one of the first things i need to suss out if the finance.  So if any of you that currently work in a salon wouldnt mind telling me your age, position in the salon and your salary, i would be extremely greatful... so i can get an average.

I understand you not wanting to write it here, so please private message me if you prefer.

Any info is much appreciated.

Yes i have alot of clients that will happily go to a salon instead, as most of them come to my home anyhow.

Its nothing concrete yet, as i have to put a business plan together detailing all finances and everything for myself before i can even start to seriously think about loans etc.

You have the most important ingredients then, clients, well done,
sure sensible planing, you sound like you are on the right track,
maybe you can get some sponsorship, or a scheme that helps set new business up
thank you, keep us informed, is exciting, realising dreams,
