Becoming an independent salon owner allows you to create your own business identity with your existing client base. It also enables you to increase your earning potential, set your own hours, and build stronger relationships with clients.
That is up to you. On average, independent salon owners make anywhere from 25% to 65% percent more than they did as employees in traditional salons.
Not at all. You’re not renting a chair in a common area. You actually have a key to your own private studio. No one but you has access to your studio, your supplies, or your equipment.
Optima Beauty Salons is a new concept designed for experienced beauty professionals who want to break out of the traditional salon environment. If you have the experience and client base to start your own business, Optima Beauty Salons is for you. When you lease a studio at Optima Beauty Salons, you get to keep all of your commissions, set your own hours, sell your own products, and be your own boss.
