A pioneering skincare brand known for its non-invasive treatments
Health & Beauty, Retail
Guinot is a pioneering skincare brand that has been established for more than 50 years. Known for its non-invasive treatments for face and body, Guinot is continuously investing in research and development to remain at the forefront of the industry. The company’s treatments and products can be found in over 10,000 salons in 70 countries around the globe.
For Guinot, a salon is a professional beauty care establishment in which women can achieve their beauty aims with advice from their beauty therapist.
Guinot has a network of more than 150 franchises. The model is well established in France and its success has led the company to launch its franchise opportunity in the
UK and Ireland.
Guinot is an associate member of the British Franchise Association.
This company offers two franchise options: converting an existing beauty salon to a Guinot franchise operation or opening a new salon using the brand’s tried-and-tested
systems of operation.
For an existing salon looking to convert to a Guinot franchise, the start-up costs can be as low as £35,000. And the potential return on this investment can be impressive:
established salons in France that converted to a Guinot franchise experienced an average increase in turnover of 20 per cent.
Opening a new Guinot salon typically costs between £90,000-£130,000, which includes the franchise fee, plus all setup costs and operating expenses.
Franchising with Guinot allows anyone with a passion for the health and beauty business to manage their own high street beauty salon, with the guidance and support of an established brand.
Franchisees are responsible for managing the business on a day-to-day basis; promoting the business within their local community; the recruitment, motivation and management of their team; and monitoring individual therapist performance and salon business performance indicators.
In addition, team meetings, stock control and hosting customer-led events are essential parts of running the business.
The cost of a new salon is between £90,000-£130,000. The cost for an existing salon owner to convert their business to a Guinot franchise is from £32,000.
The company has franchise opportunities available throughout the UK.
Prospective franchisees must be driven, passionate, hardworking and able to follow a proven system. Beauty experience is not essential, but an interest in health and beauty
is desirable, along with experience in customer-facing roles.
Guinot is a well-established brand in the health and beauty sector, which increases the chances of making a salon business in a competitive market a success.
The brand’s iconic interior design is instantly recognisable and as a member of the British Franchise Association, a Guinot franchisee can be assured of ethical business
practices and fair franchising.
Guinot headquarters are in Ascot, Berkshire.
Guinot’s comprehensive training programme is designed to provide franchisees with everything they need to run their own businesses.
It begins with a one-week induction course and two days spent at the company’s own salon.
When it comes to support, the franchisor assists with local market analysis, site selection, salon design, plus staff recruitment and training. Guinot also assists franchisees to complete their business plans, three years profit and loss, cash flow forecast and balance sheet.
Ongoing marketing support and business reviews are part of the franchise package.
Health and beauty is a thriving industry. Market research specialist Mintel estimates that in the UK alone the beauty industry employs over a million people and is worth
more than £17bn.
Spending time in a beauty salon is one of the best ways for people to escape from their daily life, as well as giving them the opportunity to fulfil beauty goals, whether
that may be hair removal, body care, face care or other treatments.
Today’s Instagram lifestyle means people focus on looking good and in Guinot they find beauty therapists brimming with determination, energy and a passion for beauty,
which is infectious and keeps customers coming back for more.
What marks out Guinot from other beauty salons is that they are led by inspired entrepreneurs with business acumen, enthusiasm and dedication.

All prospective franchisees are required to meet the Guinot team at the company’s head office to discuss the opportunity further and decide whether investing in the franchise would be mutually beneficial for both parties.
