Current Salon adding Spa & Salon Services

Hello,
I need someone who knows what are the best spa & salon services to focus on an extension of my current business. For example facials, microderm abrasion, massage, make-up application ect. What are the big money makers to have my esteticians concentrate on providing? Thanks for you expertise

Re: Current Salon adding Spa & Salon Services

I had a tanning salon and added spa services. They never caught on. I thought it was a fantastic idea, but no one wanted to come to a tanning salon for those things. Plus there are spas on every corner specializing in them.

Also salons are noisy, so you would need an enclosed room for spa services.

Re: Current Salon adding Spa & Salon Services

I tried massage therapy and wanted to pull out my hair so after 1.5 years I pulled it out! It was a nightmare to do the scheduling and work with most of the therapists. I do take some of the blame when it came to advertising it and everything I could have done more, but the catch was I was nervous the therapists wouldn't show up and it was such a pain as most of the therapists had other regular jobs and just did it on the side - My advice if you are going to do it- do it 110% when it comes to hiring help & advertising or it will never be worth it- the whole independent contractor thing is great when it comes to taxes & not paying someone to do nothing when you aren't busy- BUT, realize you will have the scheduling nightmare if they are independent contractors. Hope this helps! Best of luck and whichever way you go!
