Got ya. Hmmmm. I guess if there is a rule that no one can advertise in the shop then that's fine but they may just find somewhere else to rent. If they're paying to rent a chair they'll want the advantages of being able to advertise there I'd imagine.
You don't stand anywhere I'm afraid. If they're self-employed they run their business inside your shop. You're just a landlord in this scenario. They should all advertise their own business name, their own price lists and manage their own bookings and take their own payments.
If you aren't...
Honestly, I would've sacked her. Plenty of people would relish the opportunity you're giving her. Letting her friend in was gross misconduct and I'd be letting her go for that. Would have voided your insurance and all sorts.

You know my recommendation anyway :)
Shopify has pros and cons but yeah, it’s a full DIY system and you need the time to set it up. It’s a monthly fee.
Like any DIY system, you wouldn’t own the website.
Most micro blading licensing from councils needs fixed premises and nearby sink/running water most the time I think. Some councils are stricter than others but it’s not unusual to fall into same licensing requirements as tattoo shops.
Getting staff is one of the hardest things in the industry and as you’re 3 months away I’d start looking now as you still may not find them in time.
You have a very particular list of requirements and these kinds of people normally work for themselves or elsewhere so you’ll need to offer a...
