If the business side of the beauty business is not your strong suit, theHRsalon can help. The Irvine, Calif.-based company bills itself as a “one stop shop” that provides salon and spa owners with the tools and resources they need to work with booth renters and independent contractors. Handling everything from accounting and payroll to insurance and legal contracts, theHRsalon helps owners run successful businesses, while avoiding the potential for legal risks.

“Having worked in the HR industry for many years, I saw a major void for 1099 contract support in the beauty industry,” says CEO Amy Washle. “As many stylists, masseuses, nail technicians, and estheticians decide to take that exciting next step as owners, they often lack the experience needed to run a successful small business.”

The goal is to eliminate the chance of being reclassified by the IRS or facing costly fines. “When salons use a 1099 work force they must operate within the guidelines of many legal statutes. To help make sure salons are structured, documented, and implemented within those legal guidelines our highly trained team works one-on-one with salon owners and their management team,” says Washle. “We bring salon and spa owners peace of mind, while helping them save money and valuable time so they can continue building their business.”
