Emerson Salon Leasing Opportunity


If you’re ready to be your own boss, and would like to grow your hair business at a prime location in Seattle — then Emerson Salon could be a great fit for you!

Emerson Salon offers you an opportunity to grow your business alongside other independent hair professionals (*Serious inquiries are to be submitted via email ONLY to b.please.llc@gmail.com (please no unscheduled drop by’s.) Please include references, resume, examples of your work, and information about your specialties.)

Catering to an eclectic mix of clientele, our storefront is at street level in the Pike/Pine Corridor in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA, within close proximity to the light rail, Metro buses, the hospitals, Seattle Central College, Seattle University and the First Hill Streetcar. Our loft style space is benefited by the natural light coming in from our storefront windows in tandem with our eco-friendly LED lighting. The space is maintained on-site by working owners/operators (read below “Background on Us.”)

We are seeking hair professionals with 3+ yrs experience who are ready to run their own business within a salon in Seattle. Stations are leased for 2 – 6 days per week, and our salon is closed on Mondays for salon cleaning and educational events/opportunities. Emerson Salon sees foot traffic from our regular clients as well as from increased foot traffic in the area.

Chair rental includes space access on the days you work (including a key to the premises,) all utilities, back bar (Kevin.Murphy, MoroccanOil, and Loma), Barbicide, towels, storage space, and continuing education opportunities in-salon (we offer quarterly in-salon educational classes by our retail brand educators.) The salon’s common areas are cleaned monthly by Green Wagon Cleaning. All lessees are provided with a customized profile on our website with your picture and any website/social media links and online booking link you utilize. We also maintain ongoing salon marketing through our storefront advertising, our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest pages, and our salon blog.


*If you don’t want to provide your own supplies and color inventory, you have access to COLOR.ME Kevin.Murphy, It&ly, and Pravana haircolor brands and associated supplies; you only pay for the amounts you use per service.

We operate well as “A Community of Independent Hair Designers,” where each stylist runs their own schedule using online booking. Online booking is provided to booth renters at no additional cost through hirefrederick.com, but you can use any scheduling system of your choosing. There is no receptionist “gatekeeper”, and we each pitch in daily to keep the salon neat and clean, and we greet each client coming through our doors. All lessees start out with a 3-month trial lease, with an option to sign a longer term 6-month or annual contract upon successful completion, and there is no increase to your base day rate during the trial period {currently $55.00/day.}

We each maintain all o20161123_101526_picmonkeyedf the required licenses (Cosmetology, Salon/Shop, WA State Master Business License and City of Seattle Business license.) Each booth renter must carry their own insurance liability policy in accordance with WA State Salon Shop licensing regulations.
