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 also running their businesses from their chair.
  • Catering to an eclectic mix of clientele, our storefront is at the street level in the Pike/Pine Corridor in Capitol Hill. We are within close proximity to the light rail, Metro buses, and the First Hill Streetcar.

  • Our loft space is open, and is benefitted from the natural light coming in from our storefront windows as well as from our eco-friendly LED track lighting. The space is maintained on-site by working owners/operators. There are days when there is much foot traffic from our regular clients having their hair done and/or purchasing retail products, and we’re all too busy to accommodate the walk-ins. 
  • 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 (at minimum) – 6 days (maximum) per week, and our salon is open 6 days a week.
  • We are closed on Mondays for salon cleaning and educational events/opportunities. Booth renters’ lease rates are determined per days of the week each station is leased. We start everyone out with a 3-month trial lease, with an option to sign a longer term 6-month or annual contract following successful completion of the trial period. There is no increase to your base day rate during the trial period {currently $55.00/day.}
  • *Serious inquiries are to be submitted via email only. Please include references, resume, examples of your work, and information about your specialties.
  •  As individual small business owners, we each establish our own appointment hours, available services, and book our clients’ appointments. Online booking is provided to booth renters at no additional cost.
