‘Beauty salons will always be necessary because the demand for haircuts is stable. In addition, customers have already created patterns of high consumption of these types of services at Christmas and other holidays.

Which of the options is appropriate?

Everything is defined by the type of customers you want to attract. If you aim for massive customer service, you will have to create a more traditional hair salon. If, on the contrary, you want to focus on a more exclusive customer (but more recurring and with a greater ability to purchase products), you must create a company, create a VIP lounge.
