Why Beauty Salons & Consultants?

Like us, you may be asking “Why Beauty Salons & Consultants”? As we found from http://www.startups.co.uk/beauty-salon-spa.html there are plenty of reasons to start up a Beauty Salon;

“UK adults spend around ??5bn a year on health and beauty products, and much of this cash goes to salons.??According to a 2008 report from beautyserve.com, there were over 13,000 salons in the UK, employing more than 30,000 people.”

“Industry analysts claim that beauty salons have performed well during the recession;??a 2009 report from market research leaders??Mintel found that only one in 10 women had stopped going to the salon to??save money during the downturn. Furthermore??a number of recent trends, notably the increasing number of men seeking specialist health and beauty treatment, have provided real benefit to salons up and down the country”
