Unfortunately, with the cost-of-living rise, the increase in energy prices and the aftermath of covid, the high street is being negatively impacted by all these factors.
Many high street salons have closed their doors with beauty therapists and hairdressers looking for alternative and cheaper ways to trade.
Working on a mobile basis or renting a space/chair within a salon are historically the most popular ways to trade within the industry however a cost-effective way of trading can be working from home. Without the costs of travel expenses or rental prices we are seeing more and more beauty therapists and hairdressers exploring this option.
Some have converted their spare room or garage into a treatment room, others have a purpose-built chalet/log cabin in their garden.
