Let’s face it, many people are looking to be in business for themselves today. With the way people tend to pay for the convenience of things, it makes it that much easier for self-employment to happen. Having to wake up every morning, fight rush hour traffic, and be behind a desk for 8 or more hours is not as common anymore. People want freedom, flexibility, and a sense of working while doing something they love. Lately, more and more mobile salons have been formed to provide convenience to those who have such a hectic schedule. The demand seems to be there, and being pampered hasn’t gone out of style.
There have been many individuals who have stepped into the arena of becoming Mobile Salon owners. It takes passion, dedication, knowledge, and some experience to get it started. Once you have those taken care of, all there is left to do is equip yourself with the necessary tools and supplies.
Here’s a list of the most basic items needed:
- Nail polish in a variety of colors
- Cotton balls
- Nail files, buffers, cuticle tools
- Cuticle oil and lotions
- Foot scrubs
- Portable pedicure foot spa and disposable liners
- Portable nail dryer
- Entertainment (music, candles, magazines, etc.)
It would be best to find a Spa and Salon Wholesaler in order to keep your expenses down. The wholesaler would also be able to point you in the right direction for when it’s time to upgrade to the best equipment. Create a relationship with your suppliers and your clientele. Open yourself to doing company meetings/parties, seminars, expos, and personal house parties. This will help get the word out for your new business and increase your exposure.
Once you show the value in coming to your customers, they will begin to book more sessions with you.
