How Do I Become a Primp and Blow Franchise Owner?

Are you looking for a unique franchise opportunity with a business model that specializes in helping people look and feel their absolute best? If so, then becoming a Primp and Blow franchise owner might be the right decision for you.

Company Background

The Primp and Blow business model differs greatly from many salons and boutiques on the market. Specifically, we pride ourselves in being able to offer “to-go” beauty and hair services, including shampoos, blowouts, makeup and more. Our belief is that getting pampered in a salon setting shouldn’t just be for those with deep pockets or lots of time on their hands. Instead, we’re committed to offering quick and affordable beauty services without the need for an appointment. Walk-ins are encouraged, but we also provide online appointment booking and mobile appointments through our branded app for those who would prefer to schedule one.

Because Primp and Blow doesn’t offer the more time-consuming beauty services such as haircuts and hair coloring, we’re able to provide our clients with quality makeup application, shampooing, blow outs and other beauty treatments to achieve the look they want. From weddings and proms to birthdays, galas, or just because — our luxurious beauty services are becoming a way of life for ladies of all backgrounds — and we love it!

Since Primp and Blow’s launch in 2010, business has been booming, and our business model has proven to be a success for all involved, including our franchisees! We truly believe that not all blow dry bars are created equal, and that our model’s specific series of steps ensures that all guests receive an amazing and consistent experience no matter which of our locations they visit.

Benefits of Being a Franchise Owner

2016_06_Quote Like the concept of our business model? Looking to make a wise investment in a franchise opportunity? If so, then becoming a Primp and Blow franchise owner could be a wise decision. When you become a franchisee with our business, you’ll enjoy a number of benefits designed to help you get on the path to long-term success.

Pamper and Get Pampered

You worry about pampering your Primp and Blow clients, and let us pamper you in the process! As you’re starting out, we’ll provide you with the assistance and support you need, which includes assisting with local demographic research so you can get to truly know your audience and learn how to appeal to them. When it comes time to find a location for your franchise, we can also help with your lease negotiations to ensure that you find the right space at the right cost.

During the build-out process, our team is here to inform you of the best practices and most cost-effective measures, along with detailed layout recommendations and design guidance to help you maximize your space and create the best possible experience for your employees and clients alike. Through every step of the process, our development team will be here to make sure you’re off to the right start and ready for long-term success.

Marketing & Brand Assistance

Our brand is already becoming a household name in the areas that we serve, so that brand recognition will prove beneficial to you from the very beginning. However, our marketing and branding experts are also here to assist you from the development stages to your store’s grand opening and beyond. Specifically, we’re here to help with anything from researching and tailoring an advertising campaign to your target audience to answering any questions you may have about marketing along the way.


Operational & Support Training

Unlike other franchises out there, Primp and Blow is truly committed to providing our franchisees with the tools and support they need for success every step of the way. We’ll start by taking the time to train you at our business headquarters based on our tried and true curriculum. And, of course, before your store’s grand opening, we’ll be sure to send out members of our skilled team to train your own staff so that they’re prepared to provide the best possible experience to all of your customers.


If you have questions or concerns at any point along your journey as a franchisee, rest assured that we’ll never be more than a phone call or an e-mail away. Ultimately, we know that our success as a business is in large part measured by the success of our franchisees; as a result, we’re dedicated to providing the dedicated support and assistance that our franchise owners need to achieve the best results.


Are You the Right Fit?

By now, you probably have a pretty solid understanding of what our business is about and how we work to support our franchisees. So, one question remains: Are you a good fit for our business model? We use important criteria to help make these kinds of decisions.

You’re a Team Player

Our most successful franchise owners at Primp and Blow are team players; they enjoy working with others, and they understand the importance of working as a group to achieve a common set of goals. As a franchisee, you must have a certain degree of autonomy. However, at the end of the day, your success will largely depend on how well you’re able to work with others and adhere to our proven business model.


You’re Resourceful

In addition to being a team player, we’re looking for franchise owners who know how to utilize the resources available to them. We truly believe that we offer some of the best support and resources to our franchise owners and love to see our franchisees succeed by making use of those resources.

You’re Business-Minded

We prefer to work with franchise owners who have prior business experience and who have the vision and ability to balance multiple tasks at once. Many of our most successful franchise owners are natural multi-taskers who do not get flustered by having a lot on their plate. Oftentimes, this means having strong organizational skills and the ability to prioritize daily tasks.

You Love Working With People

Our franchise owners love not only working alongside others and meeting new people in the process, but have a true passion for helping others and making their lives better. As a Primp and Blow franchise owner, you will be helping women feel and look their best on a daily basis, proving to be the “one-stop-shop” for the confidence boost that comes with being primped and pampered.

Basic Requirements & Qualifications

Finally, we do have some basic requirements and qualifications that we require our franchise owners meet.

Financially, we require a liquid net worth of $180k to $280k, along with a good credit score and credit history. Upon submitting your application to become a franchisee, we also require that you provide details on your proposed Primp and Blow facility location. In most cases, location requirements include approximately 1,200–1,400 square feet of space located within a retail shopping area anchored by high-end brands, as well as other services that create what we refer to as a “daily needs center.” An ideal location also has:

  • Excellent visibility
  • Convenient and ample parking

It’s also worth noting that no prior experience with the hair care or beauty industry is required to become a Primp and Blow franchise owner. We will provide you with the support and training you need to be successful in this industry!

Our initial franchise fee is $35k for an initial 10-year term, and the ongoing royalty is 3 percent of gross revenue; you will also be required to spend a minimum of $2k per month of gross revenues; this will go toward approved local marketing during your first year of business. From there, the royalty increases to 5 percent from year two through the end of the term. What many of our franchise owners appreciate about working with us is that we have no hidden fees or costs; everything is completely and clearly communicated up-front so that you know exactly what your total investment requirements are. This is something you simply won’t find in a lot of franchise opportunities.

Overall, we believe that Primp and Blow’s business model is here to stay and will only result in further growth of our already booming brand. If you’re serious about getting on-board with a company that’s committed to changing the face of the beauty industry, you’ve come to the right place. With dedicated franchisee support, a proven business model, and a large prospective client base, an investment in Primp and Blow could be one of the best decisions you make.

If you’re interested in becoming a franchise owner or would like to learn more about this unique opportunity, please don’t hesitate to contact our team today. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have or help you get started in turning your franchisee dreams into a reality.
