Would You Like To Know How I opened My Small Hairdressing Salon and Took it From $200,000 Turnover a Year To a Massive $974,000
in Just 20 Months!
You know what I was so scared about opening my own salon but when I look back now it was the best decision I ever made.
You see I had all those thoughts going thru my head that to open a hairdressing salon you had completely understand business ..well the truth is I knew nothing about business when I first started….Zilc….not a sausage…..but one thing I did have was a complete belief that I could do it!… as scared as I was…… So off I went to my bank manager armed with my business plan written on an A4 sheet of paper….and was laughed out of his office (you could actually see them back then! Yep in an office!)
I Didn’t Understand About Profits and Average Bills!
What I hadn’t done is the proper research, my facts and figures didn’t add up, it was all a bit of a mess really…as soon as he started to question me I realised that I did not have a clue or the right answers… I got that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach and felt really silly, stupid and sick. I am a hairdresser so I see things like a hairdresser would and back then every decision was based on that mentality. I didn’t understand about profits and Average Bills, marketing, customer retention, I just had a pair of scissors and knew that I could cut hair and color really well.
I had been teaching at L’Oreal for a time and working a very busy column in the salon so that’s where my focus was… the art of doing hair…..but that’s not enough when you are thinking of opening a hairdressing salon. You need a certain amount of understanding about finance and about stock control, wages, staff levels, correct booking procedures, productive timing and all the other insider secrets that goes with running a hairdressing salon.
You see the thing is this….
I never ever give up and that experience just made me really, really determined to open my salon for sure. So I sat down and planed out every move I would make to open my salon. I took a large sheet of paper the type used on a flip chart and made a circle in the middle of it about the size of a Dollar coin. In that I wrote my goal to open my very own salon and then put a date next to it so I could measure my momentum. Then I drew lines from it and marked out every thing I would need to achieve to reach my goal. Absolutely every thing I could think of right down to the type of tint brushes we would use. Then it became really believable… actually if I did all these things then I “WOULD” be opening my own salon!
You Can Do It Too!
WOW I nearly fell off my chair, “so easy when you break it down” I said to myself. Now the thing is this I had a plan… a business plan… all I had to do is make it into something I could show the bank manager. So I called one of my clients who was a retired bank manager and asked them to give me some advice and guidance. He really liked it gave me a few pointers like how to present it in a more business like fashion but overall was really impressed, and said that if he was still working he would most defiantly lend me the money I needed. Cool! Now before I went to the bank I got some other business people to look over it for me and its surprising how generous people are with information, all you have to do is “ASK” RIGHT!
The Second Meeting!
So with my well planned and well thought thru business plan I set off for the meeting with my bank manager…and guess what HE SAID YESSSSSSSSSS!
Opening My Hairdressing Salon “Cool”
I could not believe it how cool is that my own salon. Now all I had to do was to find one and after a few months It came along. So the long and short of it was that August 8th 1996 at 10am sharp I opened the door to my Brand New, Super Trendy, Fabulous Hairdressing Salon. It was great…can you imagine how I felt inside….I was so proud, I really felt alive inside, even now thinking back to it, it sends shivers up my spine…what a feeling. Now their was only myself one other Stylist (who still works for me 10 years on) and two trainees (of which one still works for me) and the salon was buzzing it was really busy.
My Hairdressing Salon Started To Grow Really Fast!
Before long I had to employ 2 more stylist and another trainee follow not long after with a receptionist. Takings were going thru the roof….BUT and their a big but now I started to have problems come up like staff not getting on with one another, training issues, running out of towels…you see I was too busy doing hair…I needed to put money in the till to pay the wages and the overheads in fact 70% of what the salon was taking was put in the till by me. I was completely exhausted…I had no time for anything… and my creativity started to disappear.
I was WORRIED the one thing that I had the most passion for was slowly disappearing. Can you imagine how scary that was! And if that was not enough my accountant kindly pointed out that I was in fact not making any profit and that I had been a “Busy Fool”…thanks! BUT he was right!
It started to affect my health
I stared to get irritable lost tons and tons of weight went down for 168 lbs to 111 lbs in under 3 months… I felt ill, sick tired and really, really unhappy…I felt I had lost control…I had to come up with a system that would help me manage my business and keep my stylists busy and more importantly get me back on top of the business. So I spent months reading, going on courses employing consultants to help me turn around my business. Remember what I said about my plan for setting up the salon well I used that very same idea for managing the salon. Everything I need to learn, to know, to understand.
I had to create systems and procedures fail proof plans that would make sure my business would survive even if I was not their all the time, lets face it I was desperate for a holiday I was Knackered..
