Guide: How much does a hair salon cost?

The price of business premises varies considerably depending on the area. Salons in city centers or busy shopping areas can be great for getting new customers and making money, but the rent is also priced accordingly. For a new hairdresser, it often makes the best sense to start your salon at home, in a room you don't use, or perhaps a garage that you can convert.

Location - A good tip

There are salons where you rent a single space and therefore only pay part of the rent and thus can afford to be in a city ​​center or a busy shopping area. You can find most salons of this type using Facebook groups or Google.

Equipment and fixtures

The cost of purchasing customer chairs, washing stations, mirrors and other equipment will vary depending on the brand, quality and how many customer seats you need. We recommend that you have at least DKK 20,000 to buy furniture and equipment. Brands such as Comfortel Furniture are an obvious choice if you have a strong focus on price, but do not want to compromise on quality.

Cash vs. financing

Many people choose to finance their furniture, so that you don't have to pocket all the money right from the start. You can read more about financing here .

Branding and Marketing

The costs of establishing and marketing your salon, including signage, promotional materials and building an online presence, should also be considered. Being active on social media, having a simple road sign and getting your family and friends to spread the word will go a long way. A good tip is to offer your existing customers a 10% discount every time they refer a new customer to you.

Personnel costs

If you plan to hire staff, consider labor costs, insurance and other personnel costs.
