Potential Salon Opening

Hi, I am considering opening up a salon on dupont west of symington and am wondering what local businesses and residents think about this. I know there are already, or have been salons open in this neighbourhood. I have been in a nearby neighbourhood(for 7 years) renting a chair and am considering opening up my own shop. The price point would be approx $30 for mens cuts and $55/60 for women's cuts. I would also be offering all other hair services, colouring, up do's etc. I come with a pretty full clientele, but want to bring other stylists.
