Amazon Best Seller: The Start-Up Guide for Opening, Remodeling, & Running a Successful Beauty Salon


READY, SET, GO! Is the ultimate resource guide for opening, remodeling & running a successful beauty salon. Author’s Jeff Grissler & Eric Ryant have successfully built and sold salons and know more than most about how to do it successfully!

Put your dreams of owning or remodeling a salon on the success track and learn operational tactics that would otherwise take you years to master! Opening a salon or remodeling your existing business takes a lot more planning and money than most people would ever imagine.

READY,SET, GO! is packed with the steps, tips, ideas, and strategies to make your salon a success. Whether you already own a salon or you have the glimmering thought of advancing your career in this direction, this book is for you. Ready, Set, Go! will help you to:

- Visualize, plan, and organize your new business venture.

- Assess and pick the right location and negotiate your lease.

- Select your legal and financial team and set up the business and financial structure for your salon.

- Design a salon that fits within your budget and set up a successful working relationship with your contractors.

- Find the money or capital that you need to finance your business venture and open your doors.

- Hire the right people to staff your salon.

And, everything else you will need to own and operate a profitable salon!

In addition, this book has a special section, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, that contains advice that comes straight from salon owners who offered their input on opening, remodeling, managing, marketing, and solving problems and challenges. The Check It Out sections enable you to be sure you don’t forget a single detail. With this book you will have laid the groundwork, from start to finish, for eliminating trial-and-error approaches, preventing unforeseen problems, and running a successful salon.


Patrick Parenty, President, L’Oreal Professional Products:

With the launch of Ready, Set, Go!, Jeff Grissler and Eric Ryant have created a new benchmark publication on how to open and run a successful salon. For the first time in our industry, we have a true “how to” guide that can help a motivated salon professional open a new salon; and for that matter, allow already operating salons to improve their business foundation. A must-read for all existing and future salon owners.”

Kris Sorbie, President, Kris Sorbie LLC and Redken Education Artistic Director:

A little known fact is that a portion of my career was spent as an interior designer of hairdressing salons with clients in England, Scotland and Ireland. In my experience Ready, Set, Go! has left no stone unturned in offering advice to potential salon owners. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this extremely well written book and thank Jeff Grissler and Eric Ryant for ensuring that we know what we are doing before we take the plunge into business.”

Howard Hafetz, CEO, Raylon Corporation:

As I am reading Ready, Set, Go!, my entire business life went flashing before me! What if…every salon owner had read this book before they opened their salon? What a better place the professional beauty industry would be. Albeit with less salon owners, but for sure, those salon owners would be much better equipped and would have a much higher probability for success. Jeff and Eric have created a primer for all salon professionals. One book, one read, everything you ever wanted to know, and plenty of things you may not want to know about running a successful salon. This book should be on the shelf of every salon in America and quite possibly be a ‘must-read’ for every stylist in the salon, as well!”

Chris Baran, GP, Fuel Education Systems:

If you have any intention of opening a salon – Ready, Set, Go! is a must read! Where in the world was Ready, Set, Go! when I needed it? Opening a salon prior to reading Ready, Set, Go! could cost you thousands of dollars! The Facebook quotes from salon owners around the world sharing stories is so real and valuable!”
