As jobs become all the more scarce, men and women like are exploring other job options, especially job options that are related to a passion of their own. If you are passionate about beauty, cosmetology, and hair, then you should definitely consider starting a “beauty clinic”.
What is a Beauty Clinic?

This should include manicures and pedicures as well, given how common they are.
How can I Start a Beauty Clinic?
A certain level of knowledge is certainly a “must” when it comes to running your very own beauty clinic. Remember, people will be coming to you for your expertise, so you best be an expert – or at least be able to direct them to a source that will be able to help them!
Learn all about the different areas you will be working in (i.e. different hair types, different ways to control and tame hair, different hair products) and try to have at least one “specialty” area where people can definitely depend on your expert advice.
To obtain knowledge in these areas, you can always attend a school that will teach you and become accredited. Otherwise, you can learn about different areas of beauty simply by reading information on the internet and comparing it with information that you may find in magazines or in books in the library. The knowledge is out there. All that is left is for you to find it.
TIP: A great way to start a beauty clinic is to have a central idea to your beauty clinic, apart from simply making people look great. Some ideas you can use is the “glam” beauty clinic, an organic beauty clinic, or even a vegan beauty clinic.
How do I Get the Word Out about my Beauty Clinic?
Advertising can come quite cheaply these days, given the advent of the internet and free posting sites. Craigslist.com and other free online services are fantastic when it comes to trying to spread the word about your business. Making posters and posting them up all over the city is another great way to get free advertisement out there. You can also pay to have a small ad printed in a local or city-wide paper, and if you are really serious about it you can create an advertisement for both the internet and the phonebook.
When you are creating your advertisement, be sure to mention your area of expertise. If you feel very confident with hair, or skin care, or waxing, then be sure to make note of these things so that women who are looking for such services will be sure to choose you.
