Opening and running a spa or a salon for those who have little prior experience can be a daunting prospect, despite the excitement and drive to make the venture a success. Using Spa Consulting Services or Salon Consulting Services will bring invaluable experience to help create a powerful concept that will deliver a cohesive, multifaceted and unique experience for its target market, as well as ensuring a distinction from the competition. Carrying out a research feasibility study will determine the spa’s/salon’s unique offer, pricing structure, treatments and product house choice. Spa Consulting Services and Salon Consulting Services can produce a pre-opening budget to help to avoid pitfalls, save time and money.
An experienced Spa Consultant will work alongside a designer/architect to advise on the technical aspects of design to optimize space planning and operational flow; this can include treatment room sizes, layouts, electrical positioning, storage, reception desk design, relaxation room concepts and retail areas.
A Spa Consultant with in-depth industry knowledge, experience and influence will be able to introduce a wide range of product houses and equipment suppliers to suit the spa’s unique concept ensuring that gimmicky expensive treatments and trends are avoided. This coupled with the correct treatment pricing structure, will ensure higher revenues once the spa is up and running.
Other services a Spa Consultant can assist are operational procedures and standards to include manuals, guidance on the development of a skilled and cohesive team and training. A Spa Consultant acts as a mentor by providing support and guidance throughout the project.
