Re: Ten basic tips to opening a salon.
Good points Steve, but I think you are way wrong about Female employees only. I have been in hundreds of salons as well, and set up over 10, owning three personally. I have seen top producers and they are almost always male (if all other varibles are equall).
WOMEN hate WOMEN, and that is the cold hard truth. If (and that is a big IF) you can find a good looking guy who is professional and won't stare at the customers boobs and butt. They can out sell a female counterpart anyday, this is becuse you are catering to 80% women.
