There are many benefits to opening your own beauty business – from the chance to create your own brand, work your own hours, and the potential to increase your income. Here are some of the most popular treatments in 2022, that you could incorporate into your salon.

Laser technician

Laser is growing in popularity since lockdown, with many becoming increasingly frustrated with how high maintenance body hair removal can be. With technology in the sector always growing and evolving, this is a great business opportunity to start this year.

Brown/lash technician

Training to be a brown or lash tech is easy and affordable to do. With many training providers offering one day courses, you can be earning money straight away. Especially during summer months and the holiday season, everyone is getting their lashes and brows done, and you are missing out if you aren’t offering this service!

Wigs store

The wig industry is set to be worth 5 billion dollars by 2024 – with many of us wanting to change our hair often, choosing wigs is becoming increasingly popular. Not only is it a great way to try different hair styles and looks, but extensions can also make your own hair appear longer and thicker.

Bridal boutique

With many weddings cancelled during covid, the wedding industry is now booming. Opening a bridal boutique or specialising in bridal makeup or hair is a great idea for 2022, as professionals in the industry are in high demand.

Tanning salon

Many clients want to maintain their tan all year round, especially in winter. Opening your own tanning salon, which could offer sunbeds and spray tans is a lucrative business idea. Make sure you offer high quality tan accelerators, so clients see results faster long lasting results, as this is what will keep them coming back again and again!

Start a beauty blog

If you know a thing or two about beauty, why not start your own beauty blog? This doesn’t have to be just articles; you could get creative and start a YouTube channel or an Instagram account. Team up with brands and start influencing, as not only can this earn you a lot of money but you can also receive lots of free items in return for marketing.


If you have an artistic background, then giving tattooing a go might be the career for you! You need to have a thorough understanding of safety measures and practise – however every great artist starts somewhere and you could be the next best tattoo artist. Many clients will also pay a lot of money for tattoos, as they will be on their bodies for the rest of their lives.
