Allure Salon Studios opened on March 19, 2018 with not only a polished look, but also an innovative concept.
Allure provides beauty and wellness professionals an individual, lockable salon suite where they can operate their own business. These suites are designed for hair stylists, barbers, nail professionals, massage therapists or anyone else in the beauty services industry. Each suite comes furnished with custom cabinetry and high quality equipment, making it easy to move in and start servicing clients immediately.
Serving the professionals
Studio owners Gavin Schmidt and Ben Burton, along with their wives, stand behind serving the beauty professionals within Allure. “We serve entrepreneurs in the beauty and wellness industry by giving them an opportunity to own and operate their own business without the up front costs of building out a commercial space or furnishing a large salon.”
“Our facility is unique as the salon owners at Allure Salon Studios keep 100% of their service profits and their retail sales. They also completely manage their schedule and clientele; we simply provide them space to work their magic,” said Gavin.
The owners continued, “we felt there was a need in Manhattan for this type of facility. Our city has plenty of motivated individuals in the beauty industry and it is exciting to see them flourish given the opportunity.”
The concept has been well received by both professionals and customers alike. The majority of the suites are already occupied by talented professionals.
“We feel the biggest success of this entire venture is having a very small hand in 17 new businesses being opened in the Manhattan community,” Ben said.
The entrepreneurial owners encouraged, “when starting a new business, have willingness to deviate from your original plan as the project develops. Constantly brainstorm with others throughout the process to help refine the business model to best match the needs of your clients. It isnʼt always the easiest route, especially in the moment, but the opportunities uncovered throughout the process can pay large dividends,” Gavin Schmidt said.
“Each business within Allure Salon Studios is owned by the beauty professional operating it,” said Gavin. “By utilizing this local talent for your beauty and wellness needs, you are supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Manhattan community.”
Customers book their appointments directly with these owners and can find each professional’s contact information on our website at allurestudios.salon. Walk-ins are always welcome.
