    What people are saying:

    “I love Salon Ventures!!! I love going there and having some privacy with my stylist in HER room, which she decorated herself. I did not like having to move over to a bowl to have my hair washed in front of an audience. [At Salon Ventures] I do not have to compete with other stylists’ conversations with my stylist. I feel I have her undivided attention. I absolutely love the separate rooms. It is so up-to-date and yet comfortable. I love my stylist and I am so happy for her to have this opportunity to expand and show off her great sense of style!!!”

    • Benefits of salon ownership  

      • Why should I lease my own studio?
        Becoming an independent salon owner allows you to create your own business identity with your existing client base. It also enables you to increase your earning potential, set your own hours, and build stronger relationships with clients.
      • What is my earning potential as an independent salon owner?
        That is up to you. On average, independent salon owners make anywhere from 25 to 65 percent more than they did as employees in traditional salons.
      • Is leasing a studio at Salon Ventures the same thing as “booth rental”?
        Not at all. You’re not renting a chair in a common area. You actually have a key to your own private studio. No one but you has access to your studio, your supplies, or your equipment.
    • Why Salon Ventures? 

      • Why should I lease my own studio at Salon Ventures?
        Salon Ventures is a new concept designed for experienced beauty professionals who want to break out of the traditional salon environment. If you have the experience and client base to start your own business, Salon Ventures is for you.  When you lease a studio at Salon Ventures, you get to keep all of your commissions, set your own hours, sell your own products, and be your own boss.

        When you lease a studio from Salon Ventures, all you have to do is pay your weekly rent.  We provide all of the equipment, furnishings, maintenance, and amenities to help ensure that your business is successful.
    • How it works

      • How will Salon Ventures help me start my business?
        Salon Ventures does more than just lease studio space. We also help our salon owners register with the state, obtain their tax IDs and insurance, and establish themselves on the internet.
      • How will Salon Ventures help me grow my business?
        You have probably already built your client base with repeat business and referrals. Salon Ventures also offers you a presence on SalonVentures.com. You may perform any other promotional or marketing activities at your discretion.
      • Do I pay a percentage of my sales to Salon Ventures?
        No. You charge your own prices for the services and products you offer and keep whatever you make.
      • What other costs (besides rent) are there to start my business?

        In addition to the other benefits of owning your own business, it’s important to keep in mind that suppliers often have special offers and discounts when you purchase salon materials in bulk.  These special offers and discounts may help to offset startup costs.
