Home » How to Design and Build a Successful Home-Based Salon


This is the second lesson of the series, and we are talking all about the Design and Build Phase. This lesson is the most fun! As creatives, I feel like most of us have visualized what we would like to have our salon look like one day. Let’s bring it into reality.


The biggest piece of advice I can give you is: You are the expert! You need to be involved every step of the way. You know what you need your salon to be like, not just design: but functionality. No contractor will know this better than you, so be ready to bring your expertise.


It goes without saying that this phase needs to happen after you have already determined you are allowed to legally operate a home-based salon in your area. With that being said, here’s what we are covering:

    • How to Make a Design Layout
    • How to Make a Design Board
    • Dissect Each Space
    • Communication & Order of Operations
    • Salon Specific Considerations
    • Budget (with Real Numbers)


What’s Included:

    • VIDEO LECTURE • How to Design & Build a Successful Home Based Salon (18 minutes)
    • WORKBOOK • How to Design & Build a Successful Home Based Salon

After purchasing this lesson, you will have unlimited access to the video and the workbook, with a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.  You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain!

Home-Based Salon Expert & Color Curriculum Creator

  • Educated in San Francisco
  • Refined in Boston
  • Thrived Everywhere Else


I’m a hairstylist, a haircolor curriculum creator, and home-based salon guru. I know first hand that none of us receives the education we thought we would get in Beauty School, no matter how much we paid for it. When I graduated and passed my State Boards I knew virtually nothing about haircolor formulation or running a business.


Yet still 15 years later, newly licensed hairstylists continue to struggle as they graduate feeling unprepared. The conversation I love having is one to inspire and guide you in the beauty industry, and hopefully get you thinking about working for yourself either from home with a legal home-based salon, or on your own in a salon suite.


Working from home finally gave me the profitability and flexibility that I was craving. The first 10 years of my career I felt like I was a prisoner in commission-based salons and breaking free from a traditional salon environment was the only way I finally found work/life balance.


I am bridging the gap between the Beauty School education you received, and all the things you need to know so you can thrive behind the chair quickly.


Every hairstylist deserves the chance to have a profitable career, regardless of the salon they work in or the brand of products they use. If you want to make more money, feel more confident with haircolor formulation, and learn how to go out on your own, you’re in the right place.
