I have rented chairs for a couple of years. I started out paying £15 a day, then £20. Ive since moved salon and pay £35 a day. I provide all my own stock - colours, towels, products. I have use of their hair dryers and stuff but generally take my own in as I prefer them! However, I only go into the salon on an as-and-when basis. I used to do 2 set days a week at the previous place.

I used to run a salon and do a commission based 50/50 split with stylists. You need to calculate what is going to earn you the most money but that is also fair to the stylist.
A friend of mine works for 50/50 in a salon, the salon buys all the stock etc and takes half of the takings.

Rental or commission based means you avoid having to wages and all of the nightmares that entails such as employers tax and paying their N.I!

Hope this helps.x x
