Salon Owner Conference.
For too long, salon owners have struggled in meeting the many challenges and obstacles of salon ownership in isolation. Your not alone anymore. As salon owners we share a common bond in trying to build and grow our businesses. Many of our associations that are well meaning are not addressing the deep rooted challenges that are causing hard ships on owners or helping salon owners grow their businesses. Far too many salons are struggling while many more are going out of business. We have no voice. The only people that can force changes are the salon owners themselves. With a united front ,we can make these changes by addressing the many deep rooted challenges facing salon owners and our profession. Together we can make this industry more responsive to our educational and business needs Staff turnover, finding positive minded hairdressers, price wars, staff pirating, an unequal playing field, an educational system that needs reform, booth rental, rental suites, rising business costs,the growth of low priced franchises, and the list goes on and on. My question is why are we not addressing these obstacles? Finding solutions to these challenges individually is just too costly. As fellow salon owners, let us unite and learn from one another and share our vast experience and form a support group free of any special interest group. Who better understands our business needs than salon owners working daily in the trenches. Owners learning and helping salon owners,will be powerful. Our success in facing these issues will bring success to everyone in our profession. We must address the many challenges and seek solutions affecting the growth and stability of our salons, our profession, and the livelihoods of our hairdressers as well. How can we implement an apprenticeship program within our profession? How can we can prevent turnover? How about a benefits package for our staff? These are just some of the challenges we must address together.Why are the product companies selling their products cheaper at Wal Mart, Right aid and other vendors. where is their loyalty to us. To start this grass root movement,I suggest calling salon owners, in your community and share this message. Who better understands our educational and business needs than salon owners who work daily in the trenches.
