How to Set Up a Successful Home Based Salon

Home » How to Set Up a Successful Home Based Salon


This is the third installment of How to Open a Successful Home-Based Salon, and now we are covering the Set-Up & Start.

This lesson is huge and it is split into two parts:

  • Back Office Set Up
    • Entity Creation
    • Accounting & Subscriptions
    • Online Presence
  • Front of House Set Up
    • Salon Specific Furniture & Fixtures
    • Scouting Products & Opening Orders
    • The Other Little Things

The majority of the Back Office Setup can happen while you are still building out your space because most of it, as you will see, is setting up accounts.

Whereas the majority of the Front of House Set Up can happen after your space is fully being built, a lot of the set up is physical salon-related items.

There is an order of operations here that will mostly revolve around the timing of construction as well as what your target opening date is. Each one of these items will take you a little time, but none of it is particularly hard.

But this is when your business is born, so it’s an exciting process for sure!

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.
