Acua is a premium salon having premium clientele. Our regular clients are happy with our prices because they know we don't compromise on quality and hygiene.
If you are new to Acua, you might think that we are a bit expensive! Let us explain.
Our prices are directly proportional to our expenses! We employ only highly experienced and efficient stylists whose salaries are to the tune of 30-35k pm! We pay close to 1L rent for our salon because it is in a prime property having sufficient parking space for about one dozen cars, which is in the heart of the town and easily accessible from any part of the town. We use only high quality, branded products, even for a basic clean-up or a pedicure. Rent, electricity, salaries, consumables, loan payments, etc add up to about 5-6L per month! Moreover, most of the equipment get bad every now and then and we have to buy them repeatedly. Interior works get bad and we have to redo them every 2-3 years. Rent, salaries, etc. go up by around 7-10% every year. Obviously all these factors add up to the cost of our services!
Some people compare our rates with those of the local barber shops and beauty parlours! Our investment and expenditure are about 5-10 times more than that of a local barber shop or beauty parlour. But still we charge just about 2-3 times more than them!
We used to charge much less before. Those days our salon used to get overcrowded and it was extremely difficult to manage all the walk-ins and the appointments. By increasing our prices, we could filter the crowd and manage our appointments in a better way. And the waiting period of each customer has also come down drastically.
Another reason why our rates are a bit expensive is due to the addition of GST which is 18%, as per government rule.
