How to Finance Salon Equipment


Although financing is the most important element to consider before opening a salon, barbershop, or business, it’s often the last notion that comes to mind. People often shy away from financing because of all the hoops they have to jump through, from getting loan approval to an unexpected spike in interest. Find out how to start funding a new business with the options below:

Option #1: For a small salon, we recommend financing with a credit card.

Cash flow management is vital for any new business. Keep track of savings and debts while finding a monthly payment that works best. If $3,000 or more is needed, it’s a good idea to work with a financing company.

Option #2: Check with the bank.

Banks will give the best rate for the cost of funds, but they usually don’t easily lend to small companies, especially those in the service industry with equipment that has little to no resale value. They may ask for additional collateral including your home, vehicle, or other valuables. Keep this in mind before signing the contract.

Option #3: Finance with Beneficial Capital.
