How to Start a Home Spa and Salon Service?

Spa and salon as a business have grown not only in numbers but a variety of services, according to the requirements of the customers.

According to industry experts, the market size of India's beauty, cosmetics and grooming market will touch 20 billion dollars by 2025 from the current level of 6.5 billion dollars. A recent addition in this industry is customized service at the comfort of the home called the Home Spa and Salon.

If you are one of the aspiring entrepreneurs, who want to start a home spa, here is what you need to do:


Research is the basis of starting any business, to know the trends in the industry, how other brands are operating, how you will make your brand unique, concept, raw materials, supplier, and staff selection. An overall idea of the societies, where you will provide your services to and training your staff according to your business model, all these things are required to be fixed before planning the business.


After you have decided that you want to start your own home spa and salon, start planning everything from scratch, like how are you going to operate? How many staffs do you require? How much are you going to pay for each staff? What’s your initial diameter of service? How are you going to market your brand and etc.?

Once you have evaluated the strength and weakness of your rivals, it’s time to identify your strengths because the market is crowded day by day.

Equipment and Material

Since your business is going to be home spa and salon, which means providing the service to the customer at the comfort of their home, so you are going to need disposable items like tissues, paper towels, wax strips, cleansing sponges, soap, shampoo and oil dispenser, etc. These materials need to supply to you on a regular basis to keep the business running. Find a supplier, who can supply the raw materials in time in regular intervals to keep your business from shutting down.
