Barber Shop & Hair Salon Business Funding Programs

Running A hair salon or barbershop is one of the few recession-proof businesses that exist. However, there might be a time where hair salon funding might be required.

No longer does applying for some sort of funding mean that a business is struggling. In fact, many times businesses are booming, but in need of capital, upfront to increase growth and revenue. Hair salon and barber shops are no different. As a faction of the fashion industry, the hair salon and barber shop industry is a competitive, bold, and ever-growing one, and these types of business owners must stay on top of trends, techniques, marketing strategies, and much more. This is where working capital comes into play,  but who has the time to wait weeks for a traditional bank loan? Here are some alternative funding solutions to give your salon or barber shop the capital it needs fast!

A Few Hair Salon Business Funding Solutions:

Merchant Cash Advance: Short-term financing transactions that are collected through a set percentage of your Visa and MasterCard sales that are accepted at your place of business. Probably the most common term used in the industry. These do not have a set repayment schedule and are based on the volume of your businesses credit card processing sales. These are usually only guaranteed by the future sales of your business.

ACH Loan: These are a bit different than cash advances as they are considered loans and may have personal guarantees. They have a fixed repayment schedule that is paid either daily, weekly or monthly. These products are catered to industries that do not accept credit cards and need a fixed payment.

Term Loans: A loan that is backed by a bank for an exact amount that has a specified repayment timetable and interest rate that are adjusted accordingly. Terms mature between 1 and 10 years.

Business Lines of Credit: A rotating loan that gives business owners access to a fixed amount of money, which they can use day-to-day according to their need for cash. Interest is only paid on the amount of the advance actually used.

Equipment Financing: Any type of loan or extension of credit to a business, with the purpose of helping the business acquire new equipment. Equipment financing can take the form of a lease, SBA loan, and or not restricted to Merchant Cash Advances and ACH Loans.
