3 Reasons Why Black People Should Take Back The Beauty Industry

Barbershops and beauty parlors are often focal points for entire communities. They’re part beauty parlor, part gathering place, and all about the community.

That’s why we’re proud to announce an effort to fund and open twelve beauty parlors and nail salons in 28 months.

An Ideal Investment

Beauty parlors and nail salons represent ideal investment opportunities for underserved in a number of ways.

  1. The overall financial commitment is relatively small. Nail salons don’t require the massive floor space or expensive equipment of a factory. They don’t have the low margins or spoilage found in restaurants and food stores. They’re easier to fund and easier to get off the ground.
  2. They serve a broad niche. Everyone wants to look good. We can talk all we want about looks not being all this or all that but at the end of the day, everyone wants to look good. That means the base of potential customers is a large one. If a nail salon opens in a community that isn’t already being served by one, its chances of success are quite high.
  3. They’re an investment in the community. Nail salons don’t ship overseas. They don’t hire workers from outside the community. They quite literally function to make people in the community feel better about themselves. That works on a micro level with their customers, but they will employ members of the community who will spend their wages at other businesses in the community and the entire community profits.

An Ideal Entrepreneurship Opportunity

Those same factors make nail salons an outstanding entrepreneurship opportunity, so we’re looking for entrepreneurs in underserved communities to step up and make a difference.

We’re looking for hard-working people of good character who are dedicated to making their communities a better place. With our help, we think you can make a real difference for real people.

We’re offering some training and other assistance that we think can really make the difference for the right candidate. That includes an e-book with information on budgeting, dealing with suppliers, marketing, and more.

On top of that, we’ve got in-house experts who can help you with crowd-investing strategies and tactics that will help your project full fund a quickly as possible.

Be the Change

If you want to change your life while transforming your community, this is your opportunity. They always say that the best social program is a job, and they aren’t wrong, but the always neglect to mention who does the hiring.

Here’s your chance to do the hiring. Here’s your chance to build on the strength of your neighborhood to make that neighborhood even stronger.

Businesses that are owned by community residents and which employ community residents make the community just that much stronger and more cohesive. Invest in your neighbors. Invest in yourself. Change the world—one neighborhood at a time. Join the movement!   https://buytheblock.com/campaign/oh-so-polished-beauty-lounge
