What is a Hairdresser Rent A Chair Agreement?
A Hairdresser Rent A Chair Agreement (also known as a Salon Licence Agreement) is a contract to rent out a chair in your salon to a freelancer such as another hairdresser, beauty therapist or masseuse. The freelancer is an independent contractor who effectively runs their own business from your salon.
Do I need this?

As the old saying goes, plan for the best and prepare for the worst. You never know what will happen in the future, but it is vital that you have contracts in place to protect everything you have worked hard for.
Clearly set out your terms for customers and suppliers
You will appear more professional and avoid misunderstandings if you have clear concise legal documents. They can also help your cashflow!
Can I customise the templates beyond editing the fields?
Our templates come in Word format, so yes you can. By all means, add your logo and change the font and formatting to reflect your brand. HOWEVER, do not change the wording (outside of adding your customisations to the editable fields). We cannot guarantee the integrity of the legal protections in the documents if you do.
What if the law changes and my templates become outdated?
If the law changes, we’ll email you with the changes and updates to add to your existing templates. So please ensure you keep us updated if your email address changes.
