salon talk

I landed the salon account today (yay, nipple, yay - as Andrew would say) and learned a very interesting thing.

Operating a salon is a stressful, dog-eat-dog business, in some ways more terrifying than running a resto.

One of the ways to jump start a salon's business is to pirate a well-known hairdresser. If the guy agrees, he takes his entire clientele with him.

The going rate for such an invitation?

From P500,000 (kinda well-known) to a cool P1,000,000 (big name status). Some would even outbid other salons by throwing in a car.

Thereafter, the hairdresser gets a commission for every service he provides, in addition to a salary, and must stay for a definite period of time.

I wonder if it's too late to learn to cut hair.
