Editor`s Note: To better understand how cabin rental actually works in the nail industry, NAILS invited a group of independent contractors and salon owners to openly discuss booth rental issues in a focus group in Detroit, Mich chose. NAILS Editor-in-Chief Cyndy Drummey introduced the participants and moderated the discussion. Once they decide to rent salon-stand is for them to change their working conditions strongly. Whether for the better or not depends on how they prepared for the transition and their ability to manage it. Typically, a cabin rent for nail technology ranges from $100 to $150 per week. You can reach up to $1,000 or more if it`s a prime location with lots of foot traffic or a high-end spa that charges higher prices for services. The rental fee can be negotiable with the salon owner and you can get a better price if they have lots of open spaces. While booth rentals have its pros and cons, the underlying challenge is the challenge that people face in every profession. People want control of their lives and they want to have a greater say in their careers. Cabin rental gives nail technicians the opportunity to be their own boss. For the salon owner, if she wants to ensure that the work produced in her salon is of high quality and that she maintains a high level of professionalism, she must be able to communicate the mission and objectives of her show well enough at the time of employment to ensure that she hires professionals who share their values. In a living room, the owner requires technicians to keep them informed of their work schedules. She wants to know how to reach them when they are not in the living room and what hours she can count on them.
Although individual technicians do not have keys, the owner will arrange to let in anyone who wants to serve customers sooner or later. If you decide to rent a stand as a nail technique, you will definitely gain freedom. As an employee in an existing store, you work the hours you have to work and you will receive what the owner decides to pay them when you hire them. Renting a booth allows you to set your own hours and you`ll probably have access to 24/7. However, you may have to pay an additional fee to use the space outside of normal business hours. One salon owner said she thinks the owners would be the first to take the heat. “The IRS puts the heat on salon owners who put the heat on the techs. But the feeling among nail technicians is that they don`t get caught. However, one salon owner, whose salon is currently only occupied by stand tenants, said she would soon move to an ordinary employer/employee business.
She said she had no control over the quality of services in her living room under her current system and was frustrated by the unprofessional attitude of her employees and the lack of awareness. “I take care of everyone I work with, and I feel like I`ve embarrassed my people a little bit. In reality, they are already employed; I do not supply any products. I feel like they have no obligation, even though I do so much to help their business. I spent $7, 000 on advertising for six months. These arguments are all good and good for larger trade shows, says Ken Cassidy, owner of Kassidy`s Salon Management Consulting Company (Long Beach, Calif.) who advises trade shows on stand and commission rental issues. But, he says, small and medium-sized salons don`t always have the luxury of putting “teamwork” and “image” first. In another salon, working hours have become a source of conflict. “My best technician is a former salon owner.
I allowed her to come and go as she pleased, but it had an impact on the other technicians,” she says. They saw the freedom she had, and they wanted herself. But I can`t let everyone work their own private schedules. Like Marshall, Piskur says it`s a challenge to find qualified nail technicians, but she says it`s
