Today's Top TipOnline business plan scams are alive and doing very well. There's even a new wrinkle: the "crowd funding". Trust me, no one makes money but the promoters in this scheme.

OK, if your beauty salon business plan is meant to represent a whole franchised chain of salons, then make it plainer if you want. But for a local beauty salon, hair care parlor or nail boutique, make it jump up and shout, This is MY business! (Actually the presentation for the franchises should shout that same thing.)
That's what works.
Who can best use this business plan? Hair style salons and beauty parlors are the most popular kind of beauty business, but nail salons and all sorts of beauty boutiques and beauty shops have become increasingly popular the past decade or so.
Whatever your niche, and whatever you choose to do, here are the three components you will need to make it all happen:

It seems like a daunting task: creating a beauty salon business plan. And it can be. So we've made this as easy to use as possible. Your business proposal for your business will be finished in no time, in 7 easy steps.
Your experience will really open doors for you when looking for financing. The fact that you have been a beautician won't be nearly as important as the fact that you have managed salons and taken business administration courses at night.
The other thing that will impress the daylights out of bankers is providing a list of your top clients, maybe even pictures of them in the salon.
Add those elements to your business plan and you will be well on your way to success funding!
But the Business Plan Won't Have ...
As much as we want to include everything, we can't. We would end up with a book 900 pages long, and one that costs many times what this one does.
So don't look for a beauty salon business plan that exactly fits your business. Neither I nor anyone else can promise you that. You will need to change it. Change the layout. Change the colors. Add sections, delete others. When you are finished, you will have a great business plan, one that reflects your unique business. And that's good.
Also, at we note at the top, this really is a business plan for raising money. Bankers will see it. Maybe lessors will see it. It is a semi-public document.

Betty (Newport Beach, CA). "I know not every beautician can get your personal advice, but I did. When you told me about developing my own beauty products line, I was really skeptical. But it has worked. That extra income was just what we needed to boost our styling salon over the top."
Emilio. "I think you advice is a little conservative. There was no reason for me to bring a long list of clients to my new hair salon. The area is growing so rapidly that the clients were there already. Otherwise, it was very helpful, especially the formatting and the financials."
Mme. Rachel (Cincinnati, OH). "I thought we found a real niche for our hair and nail spa with successful businesswomen, but our market has turned out to be businessmen. Yep, it is still location, location, location."
Charisse Chism. "I know a lot of hair salons are having trouble lately. But we did what you said -- diversify our income -- and now we are ready to expand into a full beauty spa. So I am reading the business plan for the second time! (Actually the umteenth time.) It has been very helpful with our financial planning and financing."
