How to open a hair salon in Belgium
Opening a hair salon is a process that involves a few steps and investors will need to observe all of the rules for opening a company but also for running a business in this sector. Below are the four main points worth taking into consideration:
- the costs: this type of business will involve a number of specific costs like those to purchase the equipment for the salon; the services offered can be related strictly to hair care, however, many salons offer additional services (cosmetic services for example) and these will need to be taken into consideration.
- the concept: Belgium is a multicultural country and a new hair salon can address a wide range of clients; choosing a niche can be a good business option.
- the location: the location of the salon will be important, as well as the condition of the building; if the interior needs renovations or restructuring, you can add these in the initial start-up costs.
- the regulations: the salon will need to observe not only the rules for company registration in Belgium but also to obtain the special permits and licenses, like those related to hygiene for example.
