For those stylists looking for temporary space to work, and those salon owners looking to make a little extra cash off your unused salon space, there is now a salon that unites both causes.

Ninyo is revolutionising the rent-a-chair salon model, providing a service where stylists can rent space for a daily, hourly or weekly booking, with no minimums and payment for only the time used. Salon owners who use the service are given a free fully featured booking and payment system to rent out their space as conveniently as possible. We would call that a win-win.


So how does the system work? Hairdressing professionals can register their profile on the Ninyo system, which includes a personal booking pages, online payment page and calendar. Students can create a specialised student profile, which they can build on as they gain experience.

Salon owners register their salon on the system, setting their own days, rates and number of spots available, allowing for a clever boost in revenue by renting out that unused space.

Ninyo salons exist in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia. The extensive list covers all types of hair salons, meaning stylists can find the perfect geographical and personal fit. The service also extends to other beauty and spa salons.

Ninyo provides the salon network and a website to book and manage the process.”

“Salons need ways to turn quiet times into revenue and renting out their extra space on Ninyo is very easy for them and 100 per cent free,” he continued. “The salons love the concept and Ninyo ensures that making and managing bookings is quick and easy.”

A free, easy service that unites the common interest of the freelance stylist and salon owner, creating a system that boosts business and revenue for both. Is it safe to say the rent-a-chair model will never be the same again?
