Do I need to have salon experience to be a franchise owner?
No. We’re looking for experienced entrepreneurs and managers who understand how businesses work. Camille Albane salons are scalable and easy to operate. As a franchise owner, you’ll hire others with experience in hair care and salon operations; all you need to do is handle the business side of things.

What is the best location for a Camille Albane hair salon franchise?
The chic and connected Camille Albane woman can go shopping at a local upscale boutique, pop into Anthropologie a few doors down and then walk over to her appointment with Camille Albane. Our salons work best in trend-forward lifestyle centers in urban areas with a population of 100,000 or more.
How stable is the salon industry?
The $75 billion hair-care salon industry grew by 8% last year and is on pace to continue growing steadily. Even when the economy is tough, women still want to look good, and they’d rather give up their daily latte than sacrifice their color treatments or haircuts. We make women feel pampered at Camille Albane, which builds customer loyalty.
How many stylists will I need?
Most of our salons start with six stylists, including the manager, and they sometimes grow to as many as 12 stylists.
What kind of ongoing marketing support can I expect?
Camille Albane has a web portal for franchisees where they can order all the customized promotional materials they need, including posters, business cards and brochures. We launch two collections a year in conjunction with Paris Fashion Week that include haircuts, color trends and make-up palettes.
How can I get a copy of the Franchise Disclosure Document?
If you fill out the form to the right, a member of our franchise development staff will be in touch with you quickly for an initial conversation. You can request a copy of our FDD at that time.
Who are my main customers?
Camille Albane salons cater to the sophisticated career woman age 25-45, although we also attract fashion-forward male clients.
What services does Camille Albane offer?
We offer an array of services, including haircuts, color, Balayage, manicures and pedicures, make-up and facial waxing. We also provide beauty services for weddings, parties and other events, and up-dos are one of our specialties.
Can I hire someone to run my beauty franchise?
Most of our franchisees are owner/operators. If you start out with one salon, you can oversee the business part time and work your way up to full-time involvement as you add more salons. You can hire a licensed operator to manage your Camille Albane salons, so we’re looking for franchisees who can “manage the manager.”
