Top 7 Reasons for Buying a Hair Extensions and Hairloss Franchise by Diane Shawe

Buying a franchise can be a life-changing experience. Make sure it’s a positive experience by doing your due diligence before signing a franchise agreement. A properly designed and executed franchise system can be an exceptional method of expansion, but franchise systems that are poorly designed or not well managed are to be avoided. Below are the top 7 reasons to consider investing in a hair extensions franchise.

01

An Existing Franchise Is a Turnkey Business

Many entrepreneurs have the skills to run an existing successful business but don’t have expertise in all it takes to get a business up and running, whether that’s obtaining financing or negotiating lease terms.

Buying an existing franchise in a well-designed system can eliminate much of the hard work: choosing a territory, finding a location, negotiating a lease, finding reliable contractors to complete a build-out on time and on budget, establishing vendor relationships, etc. You may also be able to start a business with trained staff already in place.

But, you will still need to do your homework – aside from the transfer fee, your fees and terms may be substantially different than the sellers.

02

Proven System in Place

When you buy a franchise, you buy a system – an entire method of doing business. Franchises have an established system in place that you must follow to distribute the franchisor’s products or services using the franchisor’s trade or service marks. Having a proven system already in place eliminates the guesswork and errors a common business owner would normally face.

In addition to exercising some control over franchising operations and the franchisee’s adherence to brand guidelines, the franchisor provides the franchisee with franchising leadership and support.

03

Corporate Image and Brand Awareness

If you buy into a franchise system that is already established, the corporate image and brand awareness is already recognised. Customers are usually more comfortable purchasing items they are familiar with and working with companies they already know and trust.

In the consumer’s mind, a franchisor’s brand equals the company’s reputation. Great franchisors want to ensure that their customers are satisfied every time they shop at a franchised location and that the franchisee delivers on the franchisor’s brand promise.

04

Higher Likelihood of Success

Buying a franchise is very different from starting a mom-and-pop business. Since there is an already established system in place, there is a higher likelihood of success. If you invest in a proven franchise opportunity and follow the system the franchisor has put in place, you should be on your way to running a successful business.

05

Easier to Obtain Financing

Lenders are usually very comfortable financing the purchase of a franchise because franchises already have a proven track record. Bankers usually look at successful franchise chains as having a lower risk of repayment default and are more likely to loan money based on that premise.

In addition, some franchise systems will provide in-house financing and/or leasing options. Many systems also offer special discounts for veterans, via the VetFran initiative.

06

Training

Most franchise companies offer a training program that is typically held at their corporate offices, plus additional training that occurs at the actual franchise location before the grand opening. The franchisor will train you to run your franchise the same way their other franchised locations are run.

It will ensure that you are running your business efficiently, and will help to eliminate any common mistakes a new business owner usually faces.

07

Ongoing Support

When you buy a franchise, you have the support of the franchisor and the support of knowing you are part of a growing system. You will always be able to pick up the phone and ask questions of the franchisor or even other franchisees.

Established franchisors typically also have field staff who can visit your location to provide coaching and consulting if needed.

Do Hair Extensions, Hairloss and Beauty Franchises work?

It would seem that there is a blind spot towards innovation outside of technology as we forge ahead with directing where the investment opportunities are bedded.

We are living in a new economy—powered by technology, fueled by information, and driven by knowledge. And we are entering the new century with opportunities on our side saddled with huge problems that require new thinking. I believe a percentage of our system must focus on the areas where humans can outclass computers—such as in cognitive skills, interpersonal skills, fine motor skills, and perform tasks machine might currently find unprofitable.

More and more top fortune company’s are giving way to automation primarily to drive costs down, improve reliability, security and accuracy.

I believes that we need to make sure that the type of education and economical opportunity supplied can keep a population in work or self-employment, performing meaningful tasks relevant to todays and tomorrow needs.

WHICH 5 HAIR EXTENSIONS TECHNIQUES  ARE THE MOST PROFITABLE?

With the growth of Hair Extensions let us examine the most profitable techniques for your mobile business or Salon

Article written by Diane Shawe M.Ed
Founder www.hairextensionstraining.academy

We have seen the hair extension market grow over the past 15 years, now there are more hair extension techniques than ever before and it can be confusing to decide which is the right one for your business or for your clients.

If you are thinking of becoming a qualified technician, it is important to consider how potential clients might make their decision.  Some people will make a decision based on their budget, others on their hair type and life style, some on what their friends recommended.  Whilst these points are interesting, it is important for you to consider techniques that will service your clients and keep them coming back.

Here are just a few tips to help with your decision making process.

traction_alopecia_caused_by_hair_clipin_3_diane_shawe1. Wigs:  Wigs are a quick and easy way to give a client a quick makeover.  What you need to bear in mind is that the cheaper the wig the more un-natural it will look.  If you have a client with special needs then it might be possible to make at least 28% profit.  We know that the internet has changed a lot of shopping habits and clients can sources their own wigs on line or in some of the high street hair supplier shops for as little as £25.00.  Sourcing or even making a custom wig for a client is an alternate route and they will pay between £220 – £600 for a good quality wig which could last for up to 12 months. MAKING WIG 4HOURS, INSTALLATION 1 HOUR – NOT PROFITABLE

2. Hair Pieces: There are lots of different hair pieces from pony tails to rear hair attachments in all different shades, curly, straight or plaits. There are also specialist hair pieces for thinning hair that can help disguise any  thinning hair problems.  The thing to bear in mind is that hair pieces are not often very secure and could make a client feel a little self concious.  Some of the ponytail pieces can be securely fixed, for a temporary look.  INSTALLATION 45 MINS. NOT PROFITABLE

popular integrated weave

3. Integrated Weaves: This is when wefts of hair is sewn onto a fine cornrow which is then hide by the bulk of your hair on top.  It is a popular technique because if done correctly it can look very natural and offer up a robust and secure hair enhancement solution.  If the client looks after the hair they can reuse it when they get it re-tightened. Clients could pay between £190 – £430 for the integrated weave and £60 – £120 for a retighten every 8 weeks. INSTALLATION 2 HOURS – RETIGHTEN 1 HOUR – VERY PROFITABLE

4. Pre-tips: This is small pieces of hair that have been pre bonded together.  They can be added in sections all over the head to aid thickening, give the impression of highlights or lowlight and length.  Pre-tips can be applied using heat, micro rings or even small elastic bands.  Be aware that they have to be professionally removed so as not to damage your own hair. Client could pay between £160 – £500 for installation. Retighten every 10 – 12 weeks can be expensive as it involves removing and reapplying (sometimes new hair) £55 per hour.
MAKING PRE-TIPS 1 HOUR – INSTALLATION 2 HOURS – RETIGHTEN – 4 HOURS – SLIGHTLY PROFITABLE

5. Strand by Strand (glue gun): This is when hot bond heated up in a glue gun is used to bond small sections of hair to the recipients own hair.  It was a very popular technique in 6 years ago, but requires professional application and removal by a qualified technician.  Can give the appearance of flyaway hair that client could somewhat run their fingers through.  It is a very time consuming technique and is much better for a long term wear over 3-4 months. Clients could pay anything between £400 – £2100. INSTALLATION – UPTO 5 HOURS – RETIGHTEN – 6 HOURS – MODERATELY PROFITABLE.

6) Clip in hair extensions: These are now very popular.  They are best used for lengthening mid should length hair.  If the hair is shorter they don’t sit very well because they can be a little bulky in appearance.  They don’t offer up much security unless they have been professionally fitted.  This is when a very small cornrow is done and the clips are slipped through for much added security.  Great for an evening occasion but not advisable for long term wear.  Clients can now buy these themselves or even make them from purchasing wefted hair.  NOT PROFITABLE

7) Net Weave:  This technique is used when the client wants to partially extend just a section of their hair or if the client suffers from patchy alopecia.  This technique is suitable for 2-4 months wear. Clients can expect to pay between £190 – £500 INSTALLATION 3 HOURS – RETIGHTEN 4 HOURS. PROFITABLE

8) Hook and Latch: This technique does not use any glues or threads. It is a beautiful technique, flat to the touch and hair could be worn up.  It works well with shorter hair especially the Micro ring track technique. Clients can expect to pay between £160 – £550. INSTALLATION 2 HOURS, RETIHTEN 1 HOUR – VERY PROFITABLE

9) Lace Wigs: Lace wigs have become very popular. They are really good for girls with short thin hair, damaged hair, hair damaged by medication or cancer. they can be used for hair that needs a rest or a complete makeover for a client who does not want to use chemicals.  Top celebrities have made them really popular and you can see why from the video testimonial below. See Radio TV presenters new lace wig

Clients can expect to pay anywhere between £400 – £3000 (included the Lace wig)  If the clients looks after the hair the lace wig could last up to 6 months. INSTALLATION 3 HOURS – REFIT 2 HOURS – PROFITABLE

10) Braides and Plaits: Braides and Plaits have been around for hundreds of years.  A technique that can look very simple or quite exotic.  Braids can be worn for a number of months until the hair grows out, they can even have beads added to the end for that extra special look. Clients can expect to pay from £90 – £400. INSTALLATION UPTO 5 HOURS – RETIGHTEN – 7 HOURS – NOT PROFITABLE
