Freedom Suites is changing the game of traditional salon ownership, with a suite rental format that reduces the stress and hassle of operating hair and beauty businesses. A new Gold Coast based space is set to launch in June 2022, becoming the ninth Freedom Suites location through Queensland and Victoria.
The new premises will be in the form of high-end, fully equipped salon suites that include everything required in a fully functioning salon, with the operator adding their own personal touches and branding when leasing the space.
The initiative is seen as more than a just a space, but a bona fide hair and beauty community, as located in the $550-million Queen Street Village, Southport. The spaces are designed with Art Deco inspiration and the whole location includes two appointed receptions, a bar and kitchen, a freelancer breakout room, commercial laundry facilities and more. The space will accommodate twenty freelancers with boutique salon suites.
Each suite includes a fully private and soundproof area with a locked door and floor to ceiling walls, as well as individually controlled air-conditioning, professional and premium furniture and equipment to suit hair and beauty needs, fully secure premises with a state-of-the-art Aiphone intercom system to welcome clients, electricity, utilities and internet, provided cleaning of common areas and tea and coffee supplies.
“We truly believe that we’re making freelancers dreams come true,” Freedom Suites CEO Rebecca Randle said. “Traditionally, if you’re a hairdresser or beautician and wanting salon ownership, you’re having to pay $90k+ on a salon space and being locked into a three-year lease. We’re giving them the opportunity to start their brand or move their brand into a space where short term rental is an option without the huge fit out costs and risk.”
Sitting in the ideal position of this busy precinct, the space will pick up foot traffic from the gym and nearby tram stop within this active area. The area will also include residential apartments, a boutique hotel tower, retail and restaurant precincts, a cinema, a medical centre and commercial office spaces,
