How much did you pay rent?

How did you find it?

I have been offered that at a salon locally and im am quite tempted, as id still be self employed and id have the use of all salon facilities which would make my job easier.  I have to provide my own stock, which is fine, but i dont want to end up having to buy every single hair colour on my shade chart and end up not using them all.

Does anyone have any experience of rent a chair, who could offer some advice or an insight into it.

Thanks in advance

hey
i rented a chair for a while in a salon and i paid about 250 a week which is alot for a seat i personaly didnt like it as you are not guaranted the clients but you still have to be there and still have to find the money to pay your seat every week and all your other expensies as you stll have to have stock pay national insurance and taxes and your liability insurance

so you realy need to work out the figures before jumpin in i work for ma self now and its less worryin as once you build up a good clientel you dont have to worry if your goin to have the clients

the only thing to do with colours is get people in for consultations before and go over and decide what they want done then you can buy the colour as and when you need it i would keep the popular colours that you would use alot like the base colours in stock as they will get used
any other questions come back to me and i will try and help

Thanks for your thoughts on it

I actually had a meeting and there is a client base waiting for me... it would be 50 a day, and i can do whatever days i like, and if i dont earn the rent, i just pay half of what i do take instead.  I looked at the regular clients (lots of weekly sets etc) and the money that would come in would more than make the rent and lots on top.  I can also keep up my mobile stuff in other areas around it.  It all sounds very good, and shes a nice reasonable woman who understands the benefits of being self employed as a hairdresser rather than employed on a small wage.  She even said alot of her clients, since they are all regulars with the current lady (who is retiring and passing the to me) have certain colours and brands they like best, so if i dont have what i need ever, i can just use hers and replace it, which is fair.

Ive said yes and start in April, and providing the clients are happy with what i do, it seems like it could both be a nice little earner and a really pleasant place to work

Its a case of there, i will never be out of pocket due to rent, which is nice and im really looking forward to the change in scenary
