Running a beauty school is an awesome task. It’s gratifying, yes, and it can be exceptionally profitable. It also requires business-minded leadership, reliable staff, excellent organization – the list goes on and on. We’ve been in the industry for over a decade, and we’ve pretty much seen it all. Here are 5 tips that we’re confident apply to every school in our industry.
Ongoing training is necessary for any successful aesthetic training facility owner. Obtaining professional licenses is, of course, step one; but successful beauty schools spend considerable time and energy maintaining a steady course of training. Master new techniques, understand the modern technologies that are trending, and build professional credentials that will go a long way toward increasing your visibility and reputation in the community. All of that is accomplished through ongoing cosmetology training.
As in any business, the best beauty schools are run by flexible, open-minded people with a willingness to constantly change with the market. The evolution of our industry depends on businesses that willing to lead the charge and are always looking for improvements, upgrades, and new product offerings. In this business, the esthetic schools with the best reputations and the highest profit margins are the ones who always have an ear to the ground, looking for the next innovation.

Your vendor relationships are important. Working with the best available vendors to secure the best available products will bring consistency and predictable pricing to your business, and you need to know that you’re able to rely on your vendors. Choose based on years of experience in the field, product knowledge, and customer support. Make sure your vendors have experience working with educational facilities, and that your contacts answer questions and return calls and emails promptly and thoroughly.
Keep your standards high. With your students, with your vendors, with your staff – make sure that your standard of excellence never waivers. The people and companies at the other end of those relationships will rise to the challenge as they learn that your expectations are consistent, and they’ve give you, and your business, the respect you deserve.
