How to Create a Winning Hair Tinting Company Business Plan

If you've done your homework, you already know that writing a business plan is the most critical thing you can do for your company.

The consequences of neglecting your hair tinting company's business plan can be severe - lenders and investors don't seriously consider funding businesses that lack a viable business plan.

If that's not enough, consider that business plans inoculate your business from common startup mistakes. Lacking a solid business plan, many startups find themselves rudderless and incapable of executing consistent decision making processes, while committed business planners rely on their plans to guide all of their decision making and short-term planning efforts.

Don't Ignore Competitors

Long before you open a hair tinting business in your area, it's essential to see what the competition looks like. Use the link below to get a list of local competitors in your city. After following the link, enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of hair tinting businesses in your area.

If there's too much competition, it may be wise to consider starting the business in a less competitive marketplace.

Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor

If you want to open a hair tinting business it's a wise move to talk to somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.

However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a hair tinting business in another town can be a great learning resource for you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.

How do you locate an owner of a hair tinting business in a different locale who can assist you?

Easy. Find them using our link below and start calling until you are successful.

Acquisitions vs. Startups

Unfortunately, many inexperienced hair tinting business entrepreneurs approach ownership with the mistaken idea that a startup is their only option when they could also pursue a business acquisition.

Both ownership strategies have their benefits and drawbacks. For first-time business owners, it makes more sense to buy an existing hair tinting business than to attempt to build one from the ground up.

An acquired hair tinting business is a known quantity; a startup is less certain because its forecasts depend on estimated outcomes. If you're diligent about finding the right acquisition prospect, you may be able to leverage a business buying strategy to rapidly propel yourself into a position of industry leadership.

Don't Rule Out Franchising

These days, hair tinting business franchises are a popular startup option because franchising mitigates many of the risk factors associated with a typical business startup.

Our hair styling franchise directory (see link below) is full of hair tinting business franchise opportunities.

Franchise terms vary, so you will need to evaluate franchise fees, initial buy-in, contract terms and training opportunities on a case-by-case basis.
