I think the hardest part of having a business like that is building up clientele. Is it possible to work out of your home part time on nights and weekends, or get a chair one day a week and work on building up clients while you maintain your current job? 

When I started my own business I maintained my regular job at the start then went part-time eventually working less and less until I was able to fully support myself on my business. Don’t know if you would have this option. Or you could potentially get a part-time job to have some steady income and work part-time as a hairdresser and eventually make the shift. Do some research to find out what your overhead would be, how much you could charge for your services, and how many clients you will need to book.

I think it’s a great idea. You can make good money and set your own hours. Plus not have to deal with drama with your colleagues and bosses! Good luck!

catxashxtrophe :  I don’t think working from home at first is a good idea at all. You need training, and salons have their stylists go to courses regularly, you can also shadow other stylists at a salon and learn from them. I think applying for a junior position at a salon, part-time at first would be ideal. You would build your clientele with walk ins and get great experience fast. It’s really hard to attract new clients to a home salon, the competition is insane. Good luck. But def leave your toxic job asap!
