Salon Business gives you a plan for success. It gives you ways to respond swiftly to changing market conditions, increase revenue growth, and lower overall cost. Author Jeff Grissler is an expert in business management—a consultant and educator of salon business. With his road map to a new business model, you can build wealth and grow a thriving business.

Here, distilled into one easy-to-use how-to book, are the most valuable lessons from those who’ve learned how to turn what they do into a gateway to self-fulfillment. This book is like having an MBA in Salon Ownership.


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.

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.

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!

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!
