Opening Your Salon Step Two: Acquiring Your Graphic and Electrical Permits

In addition to Zoning and Building, you may be required to obtain Graphics and Electrical permits.

In Ohio, all licensed salons are required to display at their main entrances a sign clearly visible from the street, unless the salon is located within a mall, office, or other facility. In such cases, the sign must be displayed at the entrance of the salon. You are NOT required to obtain a graphics permit if either the sign for your salon is not illuminated and/or is ten square feet or less.

However, if your sign is illuminated and/or greater than ten square feet in size, you will need to obtain a Graphics Permit

Additionally, if you will be installing one or more appliances that require 120 voltage or higher, you will need to obtain an Electrical Permit from Building and Zoning Services. 

You can request either of these permit inspections online.

At all times, if you have any questions please feel free to contact the Small Business Concierge or the Department of Building and Zoning Services at (614) 645-7433.
