From Stylist to Boss: How to open your own salon

You’re in the midst of a successful career as a stylist. You’ve learned the ropes, earned your stripes and have a good sense of what it takes to excel in the salon industry. As a motivated entrepreneur, you have an eye to the future, and the idea of opening and running your own salon sounds great but do you know the steps on how to open a salon?

Becoming your own boss comes with perks.

You get to run your small business your way—bringing your vision to life of how a salon should run (which may or may not be how your current boss operates). While this may sound like a dream come true, ambition and vision are far from the only ingredients you need to succeed as a small business owner.


Salon Iris is now DaySmart Salon

After more than 20 years, we're changing the name of Salon Iris to DaySmart Salon! Same great product, pricing and sales and support teams, just a new name.
