Beauty Franchise Thrives Despite Recession


What do freelancers want more than anything during troubled economic times?

More work, of course. And Beauty Call has put itself forward as the solution to hair and makeup professionals.

Since February 2009 the leading beauty franchise has taken more than 500 enquiries for jobs at weddings, hen parties, special occasions, proms, corporate events and summer music festivals.


The hair and makeup artist agency is thriving and so too are its freelancers. Thus, the company can now offer franchise opportunities in a number of postcodes.

With a low initial franchise fee and minimal ongoing costs, a franchisee can be in profit after just 12 jobs. Each franchise is expected to get a minimum of just 80 jobs per year – that’s a mere one and a half a week – meaning a Beauty Call franchise can be easily run alongside other work commitments.

Existing franchisees are comfortably surpassing this target.

An attractive initial sign-up package, including flyers, price and business cards, an exhibition banner, car stickers, and their first wedding fair paid for, enables a franchisee to start working from day one.

Full-time support from head office means a franchisee receives all the help they need to make their franchise a success. Pilot schemes were successfully run to ensure the online booking management system works smoothly, and current franchisees are already pushing ahead with bookings for summer 2010.

A franchise is perfect for people seeking to build a full-time hair and makeup business that can give them financial stability and freedom to pick and choose their work.

Beauty Call appeals to artists from all backgrounds/experience and doesn’t discriminate on the grounds of age.
