Usually 4-5 days a week for me but we are a 24 hour salon so we can open an hour later and close an hour earlier than most salons.

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

This is a pretty interesting thread. I am a salon and tanning so I work all the hours myself. If I do need to be gone from the salon, I have 5 gals that are all trained to run the beds, etc. They basically work for free tanning and getting their hair done. It seems to be a win win for both of us. I get a break when I need it and they get some discounted services.

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

I work our salon from 10:00 am til 3:00, Monday thru Friday. After 3:00, our sales really pick up because our top selling employee comes in. She works til 9:00 and generates 3-4 times more sales then I. She is a selling machine and my customers just love her. She could sell ice to the eskomos and I'm thinking of letting her come in at noon.

I've always said that most salon owners are the wrong person to be behind the counter. Most anyone can own a business but it takes a different kind of person to do the selling.

I totally agree and can attest to that.

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

Interesting. I am a new salon owner who took over from an absentee owner. I started working 4 days a week, usually 8 hours, in the store with one day at my home office. At home I research product, advertising opportunities, bookkeeping and deposits. I open three days a week to oversee one employee specifically hired for cleaning, and close one night a week. This is my job - and as a new owner I feel I need to cover all shifts from time to time and get to know our customers.

I have a full time manager, one other nearly full time person, two part-time and one staff member who works about 12 hours a week doing the deep cleaning. This is busy season of course. During JASON I will switch the whole schedule around and cut hours.

I think you have to be in your tanning salon almost daily to get a feel for where there's opportunity and weakness, and where you can infuse some needed innovation. I would freak out if not in the salon for a week straight!

Re: How often do you work in your salon weekly?

I just started my business with my partner (my sister) so we both work all of the hours ourselves right now, hopefully in the future we can hire staff!
