Going Mobile would be near impossible to actually make any profit from.
You need to get a clientèle base first and that is done in a wage paying salon.
Once you get your clientèle base and for that you should be booked in advance 2-3 weeks then you could go mobile.
But then again you are "stealing" clients from the salon if you enlist clients that are not referrals to you.
Any referrals made at a wage paying salon are your clients and are the ones that you can legally take with you. Any clients that the salon has produced for you are the salons clients.
I am a mobile and not yet left my college. I hav enot stole any clients from any salon, and I think that it is a clients choise if they do want to stick with you. I do lots of courses by manufacturers and really I have collected my clientele by practising and charging a little bit towartds the cost of the products that I use and then when I have a bit more experiencde, I have raised my charges. I think that to go to salon to work is everyones choise, but I do not think that the wages to work for someone are that great I would be interested. I am earning lots more by being mobile. I officially have an opportunity to start to work for my self and I am certain that if people like the work you do, they will recommend you to others. If you think that you would like to have a go, and you financially can, then go for it girl. Who knows, you might be the next Nicky Clarke.
