I have been working at a hair salon since I was in high school. I started off just being the receptionist, but after working there for many years I decided I wanted to go to school for cosmetology. I got my degree after a year and a half. Then started working at the salon full time as a hairdresser. I have been doing hair now for about five years now. I have a great client base built up. I have always known that I wanted to go off on my own, but I was too nervous to make the jump and actually do it. Well, last week I decided it was time for me to branch off from the salon I am currently working at and start my own. I have one other girl that is willing to come with me. I found a space that is perfect for the new salon, but it will need to have some major renovations done before we will be able to open for business. The first and most important thing that needs to be redone is the HVAC system. I spoke with a local HVAC company. They said since the building is so old the HVAC system is really outdated. I knew this would be expensive, but it would be worth it in the end. Our customers are going to expect that we have a properly working HVAC system in our new salon, and I don’t want to deliver anything, but perfection for my new business.
