Beauty Business Ideas for 2021

Looking for ideas to expand your business or do you want to take the entrepreneurial route? Then let these ideas inspire you!

Mobile Beauty Salons

There were a lot of restrictions this year, and who knows what 2021 has in store for us. So if your loyal clients can’t come to you, why not take your business to them? Having a mobile beauty salon means you drive to your clients place and offer your services from the comfort of their own home or even at an office. 

Pamper Parties

We’re all in need of some TLC and pampering after surviving the hell that’s been 2020. Why not offer your grooming services and make an event out of it? The year 2021 will be the year of reunions, and what better way to catch up than a day of pampering? Work out which services would work and what you have to offer. 

Venture Into eCommerce

Lockdown changed the game and more and more people looked into buying things online. There is a demand for more online beauty stores. Once you’ve discovered the gaps in the industry, you can build your ecommerce business based on that. 

Give Private Beauty Lessons

Teach your clients how to get the look at home. Offering beauty masterclasses is a great way to earn money. The most popular masterclasses are make-up based. You can go this route, but you could also look for gaps in the industry. Maybe you could teach clients how to extend the longevity of their acrylic nails at home. 

Beauty Subscription Services

We all love to indulge in the finer things and treat ourselves. And what better than getting a surprise gift every once in a while in the form of a subscription box? Although this trend has been around for a while, it only gained popularity recently. Your services could introduce clients to new products. 

Why You Should Stay Ahead of Trends

Being an entrepreneur or any working professional means that you have to keep up with trends. Here are some of the reasons why it is important to keep up with the times and ahead of new trends:

  • The beauty Industry is competitive
  • It will set you apart from the competition
  • Gives your clients an unforgettable experience
  • Keep up with client expectations
  • If you are interested in exploring these ideas, but lack the skills, it is important to invest in yourself by enrolling for a course. Our entrepreneurship, business management or beauty courses are a good starting point.
