How to finance your Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salon

There are many ways to finance your Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salons, including speaking
with our own financing officer about the many different programs that we offer! You should research
your options carefully before deciding on a strategy. Talk with us about your options and what you
are considering, as we can often recommend programs that you may not even know exist and may
open up new avenues of financing for you.
Cash -  Liquid or semi-liquid assets. Financing with this option will give you the quickest way to get to break even because you will not be paying back loans in the form of interest payments. Be sure to weigh the “opportunity cost” of tying up your capital and compare that to the “hard cost” of another type of financing.
Home Equity Line of Credit - The fastest, easiest and cheapest way to borrow money is to set up a home equity line of credit at a bank. This option will only work if you have sufficient equity in your home to secure the loan. The International Franchise Association (IFA) says that 60% of franchises are financed this way.
Bank Loan - Traditional "commercial bank loans" are popular if you have a relationship with a bank and a good track record of repayment, then this could be a good option. Banks will typically want lots of collateral to back the loan in case you default. 
Other - We dive into these three financing options as well as other options in our complete Financing Options pdf. Fill out the form below to receive our complete financing options document!
