Making a Beauty Choice: Become a Mobile Beautician or Own a Beauty Salon?

Beautician in Her Salon

Making others beautiful is a worthy passion, and it’s good for you to find the work style that’s best suited for you. You could travel and be a mobile beautician or set up a beauty salon in a place you love. The following are some points that you should consider when making the final decision.


The amount of money that you need to spend is a huge factor in how you’ll start and how you’ll move forward as a beautician. If you’re going mobile, you don’t need to worry much about overheads, although you’ll still be investing online for equipment like hair cutting scissors. With a beauty salon, you’re going to need quite a considerable sum setting up a storefront, as well as paying the utilities and rent.


Time and location can be very different for both set-ups. With a salon, you are fixed in one area so you have a business schedule, fulfill the business requirements, and let your customers know where to find you. When you are a mobile beautician, you can do your business as long as people make appointments and customers have the convenience of staying at home while you go to them.

Customer Flow

Customers are your source of income. If you aim to be a mobile beautician, you have to be prepared to go where you could find them. If you choose to set up a salon, you have to look for area s with an influx of customers and where the demand for your services is constant.


A salon would require you to hire staff especially if your clientele increases. Your staff should focus on different areas, such as hairstyling, manicures and pedicures. For those who choose to go mobile, you can focus on hairstyling and offer additional services you could provide.

It is up to you to decide what kind of business could work for you. No matter which one you choose, remember to keep your skills sharp, maintain your equipment and keep caring for your customers.
