What is Needed to Start a Haircut Barbing Salon Business In Nigeria

1. An Office space

The location determines the price.

That is why the prices in Urban areas are higher than in rural areas.

But this doesn’t change the fact that people can locate you anywhere your barbing shop is, as long as the location is accessible and you are exceptional in delivering your services.

But by experience, it is advisable to set up your barbing shop along the main road, rather than in the street.

2. Furniture and Fittings

These comprise chairs both for barbing and for customers’ reception, mirrors attached to a table, fans/Air conditioners, an Entertainment system, and other furniture or fittings you feel can make your customers comfortable.

3. Barbing kits and Equipment

Number one on the list is the Clippers.

It would be best if you purchase the best quality clippers to prevent interruptions while cutting customers’ hair.

When getting clippers, make sure you get at least one backup clipper just in case the first choice disappoints you.

When the clippers are due for servicing, do not hesitate to do that; as it doesn’t only keep them in shape, it also gives them a long lifespan

Apart from the clippers, there are other barbing kits and barbing equipment that a barber can’t do without, such as:

  • Clipper guards (aka clippers steps)
  • Clipper Oil
  • Hairbrush
  • Neck face duster
  • After barbing spray
  • Customer’s and barber’s aprons
  • Sterilizer
  • Hair dye (must be original)
  • Face Powder
  • Scissors and Blades
  • Towel and Towel warmer
  • Barber’s Neckbands or Neck Strips ( which can also be substituted for tissue papers)
  • Generator
  • And so on; “as you are pleased to add to your barbing kits and equipment”

With the above information, you have successfully built a standard barbing salon for yourself.

The only icing on the cake left is the skilled workers/employees to assist you. And that you must carefully choose because we have nuisance out there who call themselves barbers.

This business might not pay you the excepted 300k in the first month of opening, but as long as you keep providing exceptional services to your customers, with time you will become known and people will have to sit and wait to have their hair cut in your barbing salon.

This business has days and months of high patronage; weekend days are the booming days, and the “ember months” are the busy months.

On average, the price per person is 500 naira. If your barbing skill is good 👍 as a new barber it won’t take you more than 2 weeks before you start having a minimum patronage of 20 people daily.

If you Multiply the average number 20 by 500 = 300,000 naira
