What does your daughter receive in return from the Salon?
The laws in the UK are different, so I can\'t help much. Here in the US this would be unheard of unless the 60% is just Retail sales.

All I can say as an independent Stylist, I can\'t imagine agreeing to a deal like this.
Did your daughter sign a contract?
I can\'t imagine what the Salon is offering in return for taking most of your Daughters income.
What Does the Salon Owner offer to your Daughter?

The salons I\'m familiar with that rent chairs/booths don\'t take a commission.
You rent your space to run your business.
Now there are exceptions and it depends how the contract was drawn up, agreed to and signed between the owner/landlord of the building/salon and the renter. Some charge to use products if you do not supply your own and fees for towel/laundry, receptionists assistants, cleaning company and such.
The situation you explained doesn\'t seem right to me. Did she look over her contract when she signed it and for how many years it\'s for?

Theres a thread that might answer most of your questions that was started by Ste.
So by your calculations Gemma would earn about £400.00 per week.
How much did she earn when she was employed ?

Here in the UK, self employed hairdressers usually do not have to buy any of their own colours, perms, shampoos, or staff.
i.e. Does Gemma have access to assistants (juniors etc.) who apply her colours for her? Does she get to use the salon phone and advertising for her appointments?
In the US, all of this stuff is usually unavailable. Self employed is literally \"renting a chair\", and you supply the rest.
However, I do agree that she shouldn\'t be \"paying twice\".
The 60/40 split sounds normal for our industry (unless she is forced to use a mobile phone for appointments, has to provide all of her own clients and has to supply all of her own colours, perms, peroxides and stock etc.
A large salon with a good name might negotiate an even higher percentage e.g. 65/35 or even 70/30 if it\'s very busy.
But to charge an extra £125 on top seems weird. I\'ve never heard of that?
I try to get online to answer forum posts at least once per day. If I miss your post, let me know.
