In recent years hair systems have become a popular option for people who want to restore their hair. In response to this rising demand, many hair salons have started to provide hair system installation services.
In this article, we’re going to outline the benefits of starting your own hair replacement business, and how you can do it.
The benefits of offering hair system installation service:
1. Increase salon revenue
The simplest way to increase your salon business profits is by adding a new service to your repertoire. By increasing the scope of your business, you will attract new customers to your salon.
2. Expand Your Client Base
By offering hair system installation service, you can attract customers who are suffering from hair loss to your salon.
Hair system installation is a profitable business. For example, Hairclub, a US hair replacement company, normally charges between $4000 and $8000 per year per client.
4. Reliable and recurring income
Not only does hair system installation have a high-profit margin, but your clients will also need to return every month for reattachment and every 3 months for a new hair system, making it a reliable and recurring revenue stream.
5. Low overhead
If you’re already working in the industry, for example you already own a salon or rent a chair in a salon, then adding hair system installation to your services will be a small investment.
Your main cost will be the hair system itself, which typically costs around $200-$400, and if you order in bulk, it’s even cheaper.
Additionally, you may need some tools such as hair system tape, bond, and alcohol, but all these tools are inexpensive, costing around $10-$20/pcs.
6. Instant transformations
One of the best things about installing hair systems is the ability to change your clients’ lives in an instant. The result of this treatment is drastic and can help your clients regain their long-lost confidence.
Your clients won’t need to wait a long time to refresh their look when they have important occasions coming up such as weddings or a first date.
What you can offer with this service is truly transformational.
7. Non-surgical and low risk
The hair system installation is a non-surgical procedure which means it’s very safe and you don’t need to worry about bleeding or infection.
8. Quick procedure
Once you’ve learned how to do the installation correctly, you’ll be able to do it in around an hour. This means you can fit lots of clients into your daily schedule, and the installations themselves won’t feel long and tedious to perform.
What essentials do you need to start a Hair System Installation business?
The first thing you’ll need is a place to perform the installation service such as a hair salon, home salon, or studio.
2. Client base
You will also need a client base to offer your new hair installation service to. Here are some ideas for building up a client base:
- promote your hair installation business to your current clients
- ask your clients to refer your business to their friends or families
- treat your friends or family to it so that they tell their friends, family, and co-workers
- target new clients on social media, google, online forums, etc.
- advertise on social media with introductory prices
3. Hair system installation skills
To start this business you will need to learn how to install hair systems and the necessary skills that are involved.
You can learn from YouTube free video tutorials or online courses. Just search “hair system installation” on YouTube or Google and you’ll find tons of free courses showing you how to install the hair system.
We also recommend attending the Cosmetology school to get a license if possible.
4. Source reliable hair system suppliers
It’s important to find the right supplier of hair systems if you want your hair installation business to succeed, so make sure you do lots of research before placing an order.
You should also aim to build a long-lasting relationship with a supplier, as this can lead to great deals in the future for being a loyal customer.
A top tip: Find the source manufacturer – don’t order from the retailer or middleman, order directly from the hair system manufacturer. Here’s why:
- They will always have a large number of hair systems in stock so you won’t have to wait a long time for your order to be produced and delivered.
- They will be able to make custom-made hair systems according to your client’s specific needs.
- They will provide OEM/ODM service so you can grow your own brand.
