It is extraordinary as well as a painful experience when parents take their kids to a salon. Notably, if it the first time of the kid at a salon, ever! Kids get a little challenging to deal with at the salon because they get stressed when they see unknown people around, along with tools and an environment that they don’t see very often. Building a kid’s hair salon that caters to these cute little ones can get tricky. And we are here to help – – –

The First Steps –

  • Plan your budget well and make a rough estimate of how much you would have to spend and where you would have to pay. Remember that you are starting a salon for kids and so the place has to be simple, yet attractive. Chalk out a figure and make necessary appointments. Take clearances from various central and state governments and any other permissions that you would require. Have your utilities and legal framework sorted.
  • An underlying assumption here is that your idea is solid, your legal permissions & registrations are in place, and you have already thought of a revenue model that fetches you profit. Have a rate card sketch in your head that would work best for you. Design a range of services you would be offering and try to add innovative elements and personal touches to it. Also, decide on the count of heads of stylists and staff you would have to appoint, their qualifications, how you plan to pay off your employees, etc. The idea here is that you are fully aware of your cost and revenue centers and have a clear plan charted out about how you shall deal with your recurring and other expenses.

The Next Few Steps Followed At Kids Hair Salon-

  • Once you have the place in hand to work with, the next step is to set it up very well. Make a list of all the tools, furniture, and all the other equipment you would need for offering your services. Pay attention to the aesthetics and the feel-good vibe of the salon. Your target should be to make the whole experience memorable and to want your clients to keep coming back to you. Please focus on the ambiance and do it in a way that grabs the attention of kids and entices them.
  • You can plan some exciting activities or exercises for the kids. An example would be to install an LED in the mirror-like many modern-day salons have and design a video game experience for them. It will keep the kids occupied in the game and will save you the crying and hesitation. This idea will result in a lot less grumpy faces and a lot more happy faces.
  • Install plenty of lights and some games and activities for the kids. You can have games sketched on the walls as well. Double-check the inventory quality and have sufficient stock of products that customers may want to buy.

  • Ask for feedback promptly. Get to know first hand the areas where you can improve and make the customer experience better.
