    Salon start up costs

    Ive had a look at many however its just not the same as having your own. Basins for example are something I have decided on design and couldn't settle for as I spend 20-40 mins at the basin per client so I need something super comfortable. Do you have a rough ballpark figure of what it could...

    Would you expect your employer to purchase your scissors?

    No, you are wrong. It is up to the employer to provide all equipment neccecery for the job. No it’s not up for debate, that is the law and that is fact. Again, this is it, it’s the employers responsibility. On top of that the employee has no say in what they get. Hairdressing does have an...

    Client details

    I think it would be best to! If you have a problem client come in, they will refuse to give it to you. If they refuse, no service. Having an address means if they don’t pay, you can send them an invoice and it makes it easier to chase payment, maybe I’m just paranoid?
