As the buyer of a nail salon, you will need to ask yourself what kind of owner you want to be.
If you are skilled in the practice of nail art, you may consider running a small operation where you are responsible for much of the work. 65 percent of nail salons only have one or two technicians, one being the owner.
While nail salons can be profitable, small operations don't bring in enough money to have many technicians.
Before buying a nail salon, you need to consider where your business is going to be coming from; what percentage of business is coming from appointments versus walk-ins. Typically, 39 percent of business comes from regular appointments, 25 percent of business is from standing appointments, while walk-in appointments represent 25% of business.
Location is incredibly important because business relies on walk-in appointments, requiring a high volume of foot traffic on a regular basis.
When looking for your new location, long-term leases are important and lease is something to pay special attention to because a lot of leases don’t transfer to the buyer in this industry. It is the seller's job to ensure that there is a clause in the contract that allows for the transfer of the lease. Landlords play a tricky role in the buying/selling process of nail salons because few are willing to change names on the lease. If the transfer of lease is possible, knowing how to negotiate prices is a helpful way to ensure a profitable nail salon. When negotiating a lease, determining the economic rent is more important than considering market rent. Rather than determining what other similar spaces have been rented for and adding in factors such as location, condition, and terms, your rent should be determined by what you can realistically afford based on your projections of sales and profits.
The value of a nail salon is typically in the range of 25-35 percent of annual sales plus all inventory. The inventory that adds the most value to the business is the salon chairs with whirlpool bathtubs. Value in the nail salon industry is most commonly determined by good will, which focuses on the business’s intangible assets. Business relies on regular and returning customers, and having the same client on the schedule 1-4 times per month is part of the formula when determining the value of the business. The brand and logo associated with the salon is also important, as reputation and word of mouth advertising helps keep a steady client base.
