How do you open a beauty salon?

Opening a beauty salon requires a lot of know-how, hard work, and dedication to the industry. First and foremost, you’ll need to be licensed for any beauty services you offer like hair styling or aesthetician work. You’ll also need a lot of upfront capital for a location, equipment, business licenses, and potentially staff. From there, you’ll need to create a unique vision that separates you from other salons in your area. 

How do I buy commercial beauty salon equipment?

To buy commercial beauty salon equipment, you’ll need to start by assessing your needs and researching the options available to you. Take the time to read reviews, compare prices, and even test the equipment before making a final purchase, if possible. 

What’s the best way to clean and disinfect beauty salon equipment?

Cleaning and disinfecting beauty salon equipment is crucial for maintaining a hygienic and safe environment for your clients, especially in a post-COVID world. Here are a few tips for cleaning and disinfecting properly

  • Before disinfecting make sure to clean it thoroughly with soap and water to remove any visible debris and dirt.
  • Use an EPA-registered disinfectant that is specifically designed for use on salon equipment. Always make sure to follow the instructions on the product label for proper use and dilution.
  • Pay extra attention to frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, handles, and buttons on equipment. These surfaces should be disinfected regularly throughout the day and between clients.
  • Use disposable items such as paper towels and single-use tools whenever possible to minimize the risk of cross-contamination.
How often should beauty salon equipment be serviced or maintained?

Just like it needs to be cleaned, beauty salon equipment should also be serviced according to the manufacturer's recommendations. How often this is depends on the type of equipment and how often it’s used. In general, have all of your equipment serviced at least once a year to ensure that it is functioning properly and safely.
