If you have a passion for hair styles, consider opening your own salon. Women go to salons to get their hair cut, colored and even curled, so you will have plenty of business.
The first step is to decide what kind of hair studio you want to open. Do you want to be a salon and spa for women? Would you rather open a hair dresser for kids? Or do you see yourself as the neighborhood barber shop? You could even specialize in coarse hair, or boys' haircuts.
Next, you need to figure out what services you will offer, such as extensions, perms, dye and highlights. Your customers may want to color their hair drastically, changing from black to blond. Some customers want hair cut in crazy styles, so the more services you can offer, the better. They might also be interested in having their hair blown dry or straightened for a wedding, or brushed out after having dreadlocks.
Many salons offer other services, such as nail care and makeup, so you might want to hire a stylist for each. You could even offer spray tans or hair bleaching and waxing to open yourself up to a whole new client base.
Of course, the most important thing to remember when deciding to become a hair dresser is that you should be passionate about beauty and hair. You should have a background in cosmetology, and a degree in business can help you maintain your shop.
Opening your own salon can be an exciting career that you will be proud of for years to come.
