There are two important things that set Dubai apart from most of other cities in the world. It has a large expat population (far more than citizens) and many of the residents of Dubai are enjoying high standard of life. Most of the people in Dubai (both residents and millions of tourists that visit Dubai every year) can easily afford and are ready to spend some money to have good looks.
This is especially significant for females as they are the ones who give most importance to their beauty and looks. This certainly gives rise to an important business activity in Dubai, establishment of beauty salon. According to the culture and lifestyle of Dubai, most of the beauty salons are only for women. But you can also find hair/beauty salons for men as well.
The situation of Dubai clearly indicates that there is lot of demand for this business activity. Currently, large numbers of beauty salons are already operating in different parts of Dubai but there is lot of room for other businesses also due to continuous influx of expats and tourists and their interest in new fashion. Due to mix population, beauty experts of international fashion and style have lot of opportunities to try their art on people from different demographics.
It is possible to open a beauty salon either in Dubai mainland or any of the several free zones present in Dubai. But it is more appropriate to open a salon in Dubai mainland because it will provide more contact from population of Dubai. This type of service is intended for areas with more population and therefore it can best work in Dubai mainland where you can easily attract more customers.
You can also opt to choose the size and type of salon according to the area where you are going to start your business. You can have a small and cost-effective salon in Bur Dubai or you can go for a luxurious and high cost salon in areas like Jumeirah (resided mainly by western expatriates).
For setting up beauty salon in this city, you have to contact several authorities (DED, DM etc.) and file several documents. Following is the brief list of steps that are necessary for establishment of beauty salon in Dubai.
