Not exactly a business you want to get into, very cutthroat, and there is one on every corner. To make money, you need to go somewhere where there is no competition, which is very hard. You have people who will work for you, save every penny and open a shop right next to you and will try to charge less. I have friends who had them, one had 11 salons and managed them. He sold them all, opened a liquor, wine store, and owns a lot of commercial real estate. It used to be extremely profitable but it's harder to make money these days. I still have a friend who owns a successfully salon but most of his clients are wealthy. He doesn't have to worry about competition, he charges a premium and provides premium service. His place has turned into a meeting hall for the wealthy stay at home moms.
