If you’re going to be the “New Kid on the Block” then what better place to start than the 4th floor penthouse of the Macleod Professional Centre in SW Calgary! This is the new location for UNION YYC Inc., a locally owned and operated Calgary company dedicated to inspiring and supporting health, beauty and wellness professionals with a unique approach to salon studio ownership.
UNION YYC offers a variety of salon studios. These spaces are perfect for professionals in these niches:
- Hair Stylists
- Eyelash Techs
- Hair Extensions
- Hair Removal (Sugaring, Waxing and Threading)
- Barber Shop
- Massage Therapy
- Brow Tech
- Medical Aesthetics
- PMU (Permanent MakeUp)
- Tattoo Artists
- Alternative Healing Practitioners
Each space is ready to be branded by its owner, allowing for each studio to reflect the owner’s personal and professional touch. This is an exciting opportunity for any professional who works in a salon or spa setting to step out and work for themselves.
To help even more with this transition to their own space, UNION YYC offers free workshops and events, a website profile and online booking features. Not to mention that the professional will benefit from being able to set their own schedule, design their own space and keep more of their income compared to the traditional revenue shares of working in someone else’s salon.
UNION YYC Inc. provides a shared, supportive space with a bright and welcoming foyer and reception area. Clients can choose from Single, Super Single and Double Studio Salons. All studios have 9’ sliding doors and 10’ windows for amazing views overlooking SW and downtown Calgary. Each space can be designed to reflect the renter’s own style and brand including paint, furniture and décor.
The weekly rental fee covers all utilities including Wi-Fi for the professional and their clients. Perhaps the icing on the cake is the 1800 sq. ft. private patio which is available for exclusive events, photo shoots, or just a relaxing break. On the practical side of things, UNION YYC offers a shared kitchen, cleaning station and on-site laundry along with a common area and foyer.
The collective approach to UNION YYC’s shared space reflects a needed shift in the Health, Wellness and Beauty industry. Once industry professionals have become established enough with their own clientele, they feel the need to expand into their own space. However, the start up and ongoing costs to running a traditional salon is not only daunting, in many cases, it is simply not possible.
A shared space that is specializes in providing the space and support for their niche makes this needed transition that much easier and realistic to make. Not only is the salon space more affordable than “going it alone”, every professional gets access to a supportive and friendly atmosphere created by their collective and UNION YYC staff members.
Clients will also benefit from this fresh, contemporary space that has been designed for its privacy and security. “Brand Experience” is at top of mind, as UNION YYC strives to deliver a consistent and authoritative environment for all involved, at all levels of service.
So, whether you wish to run the best hair salon in Calgary, or a uniquely branded barber shop, beauty salon or spa, UNION YYC is the best choice when it comes to a fresh, inviting space, a variety of studio sizes, its penthouse location with private patio and supportive on-site services and events.
UNION YYC brings together the best of both worlds: the freedom for a professional to run their own show, build their own brand and increase their profits, while having the support and services needed to provide the best customer experience to their clientele.
