Know how to price your treatments

Have you ever thought…?

I work so much, but, my salon is not in profit, why?

Profit must come first…

Have you ever heard this before?  Some people struggle to get their heads around it.

Many people think that when pricing services/treatments it is just a case of the product costs and wages.

Do you ever think about:

  • Utilities
  • Previous and Future Training
  • Adequate Insurance
  • Licenses
  • Magazine subscriptions

There is so much that goes into pricing structures.



Profit is often forgotten about.

I often hear ‘I don’t mind just earning…’ or ‘I am new so for now I am happy with…’

I will just ask you…  Did you go self employed to earn minimum wage?  Or was it to have financial freedom?  Was it to have time freedom?

Earning the right amount can determine how many hours you NEED to work in order to cover your personal bills as well as business bills.

Use the chart above

  • Enter the treatment
  • Enter the product cost, it is usually a few pounds.
  • Enter the wages you pay your staff.  In this instance you must enter a wage for yourself.  I always say pay more than minimum wage, but even if you just enter the national minimum wage here.  It will just help you see a more detailed look at your pricing.

Was this useful?  I hope it has made you think…
