With a stable economy and strong population growth in Dubai, the service market is also growing, especially in niches related to basic needs. Market analysis shows the high demand and profitability of barbershops: any man needs to carry out regular hair and beard care to maintain a respectable appearance and health. 

Opening a beauty salon or barbershop is associated with the need to comply with many requirements for the premises and zoning. Only after these requirements are met is it possible to obtain permits from the Department of Economic Development and the Municipality. 

It is important to think about the values of the company, to define the standards of service and to select employees who are ready to develop and constantly learn new things.

Just in the UAE competition in the niche under study is low, and entrepreneurs have the opportunity to think through their unique offer and build a business with a quick payback.

When opening a barbershop there are the following stages to go through:
