Free Guide to Hair Stylist Tax Deductions
Hair stylists often work as independent contractors rather than “W2 Employees”, and need help identifying all the hair stylist tax deductions available to them. Are hair stylist tax deductions different from any other small business tax deductions? In a sense, they are unique: each business is different, and the types of items that are available as hair stylist tax deductions are different from other self-employment tax deductions.

Why Tax Help for Hair Stylists is Needed
Hair stylist tax deductions are not readily known to many tax professionals. Some tax preparers are part time, tax-season only employees who simply don’t understand the needs of the independent small business person. Most of the returns they see are for regular wage earners who have to qualify for deductions by having at least 2% of their adjusted gross income in itemized deductions.
But a self-employed person doesn’t need to itemize to take advantage of deductions. Hair stylist tax deductions can include not only their chair rental, but also admission to hair shows and seminars, the cost of appointment cards, magazines, etc. bought for their customers, and even business use of their car. And, their cell phone charges.
Our hair stylist tax deduction worksheet has 36 real-life examples of deductible business expenses. A hair stylist looking at our Tax Help for Hair Stylists worksheet will think of other expenses they incur that might be deductible. Write them down to ask your tax professional, or give us a call and we can tell you if your expense is deductible. The basic rule is that the deduction must be “ordinary and usual” expenses incurred in your business.
