I own a hair salon in town and I have very cheap rent icon_biggrin.gif woohoo

Anyhow, I'd love to do more cakin' than cutting, lol....Not, not really, but kind of. I love my customers and really want to continue with doing hair, but also want to do cakes as well....I told my husband that I want a hair salon/bakery (rotfl)....which yes, it sounds gross.... hair and cake...

I wish I could divide my space into two separate areas!

That would be gross icon_lol.gif Too bad you just couldn't add on to the building for cakes.

Well it SOUNDS gross but technically if you were to divide it up-you would have two seperate stores...if you landlord approves-go for it girl!

Wow I didn't think about else would want to combine hair/cakes. I did hair and a part of me want to own a salon so you are a step head of me. If there is a way to do both go for it. I wish I had that set up. You have a client base to work with already that's half your battle. Go for it!

Hairy Cakes!
LOL.
Maybe you could just put in some drywall to divde it? It is big enough for that?

Not a bad idea, you could bake the cake and do the hair for the wedding.
What could you call it? - I like Hairy Cakes, it would get attention...
Cut the cake
Cakes and Curlers
Perms and Petit fors
Bake and Snip
Come on people help me out, I stink at this. I am so bad at picking names I ran a contest for the public to pick our name when we opened.

One thing to think about. After you do it will the landlord count that as a new space, and want a new rent for it..... That happened to my sil when she made her storage space into a dinning room for her bar....just a thought...

That's so funny. I do cakes out of my home and my friend does hair out of hers. We've joked about sharing a place.
