Salon loans that make your business grow and glow!

Finding the right funding solution for your hair and beauty salon business can be tricky. You may have already tried your bank, but there is a lot of criteria involved, administration and even business plans that may be required. And, all of that before you are given a simple 'yes' or 'no' to your funding requirement.

The good news is that you have another alternative funding option available. One that is almost designed exclusively for the hair and beauty industry. It's called a merchant cash advance, and it works differently from a traditional business loan that you may already be familiar with.

More about how it works shortly, but in a nutshell, this type of funding works with your card processing machine and is flexible, affordable and quick and easy to obtain. You can use it to expand your business by taking on more staff, refurbishing your premises, marketing, investing in new equipment or diversifying your business into new areas of beauty services.

There is a lot of competition on the high street, with many towns and cities having multiple hairdressers and beauty and nail salons in one area. In fact, according to the NHBF, there are more than 48,425 hair and beauty salons throughout the UK, and the numbers are increasing. Therefore, you need to invest in your business for the best possible long-term success, making sure your name stands out amongst your competition.

And, while many high street businesses have faced incredible economic pressures in recent times, we have continued to help many salons with the funding they need to thrive.

The advance offers an alternative form of business funding. It is linked to your future credit/debit card sales. So when you have a slow month on sales, you will repay a lower amount, and when you have a good, the business loan is repaid quicker.

As a hair and beauty salon owner, you understand the potential of your business. There are many routes for expansion in the trade, from offering a variety of beauty treatments to investing in higher quality supplies and tools or even further your staff training.

The possibilities are endless, and perhaps you’ve thought about this but don’t know where to start. We have helped many businesses in the beauty sector find the flexible funding they need to grow. From hairdressers and beauty salons, nail technicians, tanning studios, massage therapy/therapists and more - we can help your business with salon financing, even if you have bad credit.

Business Loans for Hairdressers and Beauty Salons - Customer getting manicure at local nail bar

Funding your hairdressing and salon business for:

  • Purchase essential furniture and equipment such as reception desk, hairdryers, straighteners, basins, salon chairs, sunbeds and more
  • Stock up on hair and beauty products and accessories
  • Help boost your cash flow levels
  • Expanding your treatments and services, for example, sports therapy and massage
  • Remodel and refresh your salon interior
  • Build a website that includes online booking or eCommerce shop
  • Increase your team by hiring beauty therapists, stylists, makeup artists or nail technicians
  • Emergency repairs and maintenance
  • Add retail shelving, fixtures and displays for beauty products

A hair and beauty salon business loan is a type of unsecured business finance that is designed for hairdressers, makeup artists, beauty salons and any other businesses that trade within the beauty industry. It can be used for many purposes, such as purchasing stock or salon equipment, hiring staff or help to boost your cash flow.

This type of business loan for hairdressers and salons is different from any other form of business lending. With a merchant cash advance, repayments are taken through your credit and debit card sales as and when they happen. You agree with the lender a comfortable percentage of future card sales that will go towards repaying the advance.

For example, you charge a client £60 for a hair and beauty makeover, and they pay you by credit card. If you agreed to a 10% repayment with the lender, then £6 would be transferred automatically to the lender as the transaction is made. This continues on your daily sales until the advance is repaid.

This depends on how much you turn over each month on credit and debit card sales. If you have total sales of £8000 and £6000 is purely card sales, then you could qualify for a merchant loan advance of £6000. In some cases, this could be more or less than your monthly card turnover, which is why it's good to get a quote to see how much you could qualify for.

Some lenders, such as banks, require you to submit a business plan, which can mean the loan process has a lot of administration involved. A merchant cash advance does not require a business plan from you, making the process fast and hassle-free!

If you are considering writing a business plan, read our handy guide on how to create the perfect beauty salon business plan.

Even with a poor personal credit score or a bad credit score on your business, you can still qualify for a business loan with our funding product.

There are many ways to use your salon finance, including:

Refurbishment, Development and Decorating

Updating your premises so that they can be safe and clean for your clients. Maybe you want to refurbish and re-design your interior to give the right feel and ambience. Or, extending your existing premises through an extension or even buying a new site - we can help.

Purchasing beauty salon equipment

Investing in new beauty salon equipment can make your business more efficient and give the right professional look and feel you need. Salon and Spa couches, hairdressing furniture, face and body machines, manicure and pedicure furniture and other essential beauty salon equipment are many of the items you can fund with your business loan.

Marketing your hairdressing/beauty salon

It's more important than ever to market your business - especially online, through social media. You can create so much business through this channel alone - it can really improve your sales if you frequently post good quality content. You may also want to advertise through media, both digital and offline, through magazines and newspaper adverts. Maybe you want to develop a full-blown e-commerce shop so that you can sell beauty products online. The funding can help with many types of branding and marketing for your business.

With the funding from us, you can get the best talent on board and build your dream team. Having the right staff who are professional and personable will build loyalty from your customers. By rewarding your staff with good rates of pay and other incentives will help retain the right people.
