The Future of Suites

Mar 20, 2024

You've made it out of your commission-based salon; you're in your suite for the very first time. After all the dust settles and your mind starts to wander about what's next, instead of trying to go into business with your best friend, I want you to consider turning your suite into a Micro Salon. Here’s exactly what you need to step into the future of salon suites. If you haven’t checked out my blog about "What is A Micro Salon", read that first and come back here.


It's time to transform your mindset. When you decide to jump into a micro salon for the first time, you are no longer just an independent stylist but a salon owner. With that comes the expectation of being a leader. Have you created an employee handbook? What are your non-negotiables? Do you have a clear onboarding plan? What type of stylists are you looking to hire? The list goes on, but you can see how things start to pile up very quickly once you make that decision to go into Micro Saloning.


We have a lot of innovative methods at DTH, but this one is an absolute must when it comes to micro-saloning: Station Sharing. You cannot have one without the other. It simply doesn’t work unless the schedule of the stations is fluid, and hairdressers can book appointments based on the availability of the stations, not just their own schedules.


Okay, all of this is fun and games, but if you’re already in a salon suite, do you know the rules and regulations about what you can and cannot do in your salon suite? Will it cost more? Do they care? How do you get extra keys? Send a copy of your lease over to your lawyer (if you have one; if you don’t, get one), send them a copy to look it over, and tell them exactly what you’re looking to do, and they can let you know what’s possible.


This is yet another way for the individual stylist to start to uncap their income and diversify how they are earning money. We have so much underutilized earning power, and there are many stylists out there hungry and thirsty for freedom and an opportunity to grow in the industry. We have the opportunity to create unique Micro Salons that provide stylists with limitless growth. This is unrivaled in the industry, and it all starts with you.
