According to a survey by Tokyo Shoko Research, the number of small salons went bankrupt against the background of intensifying competition with other companies in the same industry, and it seems that it is likely to update the highest number ever.
■ Momentum approaching record number of bankruptcies
On September 11, Tokyo Shoko Research announced the bankruptcy situation of the beauty salon. From January to October 2019, the number of beauty salon bankruptcies was 92, an increase of 29.5% from the same period of the previous year, exceeding the record high of 81 in 2011 for the same period since 2000. . The number of bankruptcies in the year was 95, the highest in 2018, renewing it in the remaining three months, and approaching the first 100 cases.
■ The number of closed / dissolved cases is rapidly increasing
Looking at the number of beauty salon closures and dissolutions from 2000 to 2018, the number increased from 8 in 2000 to 40 in 2008. Furthermore, the number of closed / dissolved cases in 2012 was 79, and the number of bankruptcies, which had exceeded the number of closed / dissolved cases up to that 72, was reversed. Since then, the number has continued to increase, reaching 224 in 2016, exceeding 200 for the first time. Although it was 197 cases in 2017, minus the previous year, it increased to 242 cases in 2018.
■ Small beauty salon bankruptcies are over 90%
Of 92 cases that went bankrupt from January to October, 87 were companies with a debt amount of less than 100 million yen (94.5% of the total, up 27.9% from the same period last year), and 88 companies with a capital of less than 10 million yen (95.6%, 31.3% increase), and private management and small-scale beauty salon bankruptcies exceed 90%.
■ Number of stores more than 4 times the convenience store
The most common cause of bankruptcies was sales slump in 75 out of 92 cases (81.5% of the total, up 19.0% year-on-year). In addition, there were 7 cases due to previous wrinkles with accumulated deficits, and 3 cases of undercapitalization due to lack of working capital.
The number of salon stores is 251,140, 4.5 times the number of convenience stores (55,711 stores), and it is a labor-intensive industry, so labor shortages and labor costs are also an adverse factor. He also touched on an increase of 1,000 yen cut, pointing out the need for flexible service provision and appeal to customers.
Isn’t it a fee?

Your hair keeps growing every day
It’s a strange story that a beauty salon can’t do it.
The fact that hair grows automatically leads to the number of customers
I think this is a very fortunate industry.
I don’t have a beauty salon that pays thousands of yen for a cut
Slightly wasteful | ω ・)
This is the idea.
Isn’t it simply expensive?
A hairdresser is a national qualification,
An honest story cut and shampoo is expensive for thousands of yen.
If you cut your hair, everyone will feel better
I think that there are many people who go,
Even if you cut it by 1000 yen cut
It is true that there is a refreshing feeling equivalent.
If the 1000 yen cut is struggling
It comes to the story,
Isn’t it a charge setting?
