2. Theoretical Framework of the Study


Entrepreneurship is the process of designing, launching, and running a new business, i.e. a startup company offering a product, process or service. Accrding to AK Yetisen, LR Volpatti, AF Coskun, S Cho, E Kamrani, H Butt, A Khademhosseini and SH Yun (2015) [2]

Entrepreneurship is the willingness to take risks and develop, organize and manage a business venture in a competitive global marketplace that is constantly evolving according to [3]


The entrepreneur is "a person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk." by [4]

"An entrepreneur is someone who can take any idea, whether it be a product and/or service, and have the skill set, will and courage to take extreme risk to do whatever it takes to turn that concept into reality and not only bring it to market, but make it a viable product and/or service that people want or need," Gottlieb said published by [5]

Women Entrepreneurship:

Women entrepreneur may be defined as a woman or group of women who initiate, organize, and run a business enterprise. In terms of Schumpeterian concept of innovative entrepreneurs, women who innovate, imitate or adopt a business activity are called "women entrepreneurs" by yourarticlelibrary [6]

Beauty Parlor:

A beauty salon or beauty parlor (beauty parlour) (or sometimes beauty shop) is an establishment dealing with cosmetic treatments for men and women by oxforddictionaries [7]

A place where your hair, face, and body can be given special treatments to improve their appearance by dictionary. cambridge. [8]

Marketing Plan:

A marketing plan has a formal structure, but can be used as a formal or informal document which makes it very flexible. It contains some historical data, future predictions, and methods or strategies to achieve the marketing objectives. Marketing plans start with the identification of customer needs through a market research and how the business can satisfy these needs while generating an acceptable level of return according to [9]

3. Literature Review

The reflection of this portion is to deliver a perceptive review of the past research all of it associated with the contemporary study, Encircled by the researches completed the subsequent are mentionable:

Woman entrepreneurship is the fundamental issue "The emergence of women entrepreneurs in a society depends mainly on economic, social, religious, cultural and psychological factors" (Habib et. al., 2005) [10]

Women entrepreneurs have to encountered different types of obstacles in starting and running a business which includes lack of confidence, funding, access to business networks, family hostility, and culture of masculine advantage and challenges of ethnicity (Gill & Ganesh, 2007) [11]

Women entrepreneurship development is a challenging phenomenon in Bangladesh as women are lagged behind socially and economically (Haque & Itohara, 2009) [12]

Most challenging aspects of being in beauty parlor profession was getting social acceptance and respectability, since this is a profession quite different from being a doctor, or banker or even the traditional and conventional professions associated with women. In considering the social status, many of them informed that the impediments came from parents who did not like them to enter into business. (MIDAS, 2009). [13]

Women entrepreneurs of Bangladesh have been transmuting their small individual house-based business activities into a new business venture or enterprise for the last three decades mostly from the family backup rather than institutional support, and they evidenced that they have a fabulous potential in empowering women and transforming society. (Dhaka courier, 2010) [14]

This is not surprising for until recently females were confined to private and domestic roles. But the role of entrepreneur does not conform to the traditional roles that females are expected to play in society. These issues, and others, may result in more family conflicts for females than their husbands (World Bank, 2012) [15]

Equivalent many forward-thinking and emerging countries the economic empowerment of women is supposed to work as a catalyst for economic progression and growth of Bangladesh. Social attitudes still characterize entrepreneurship as a male endeavor, and discrimination discourages many women from entering private business (Shah, 2013) [16]

In adding, ensuring access to finance is the most important prerequisite that an entrepreneur must have to operate a beauty salon business. Unfortunately, for women entrepreneurs it is not that easy to avail loan facility from banks and financial institutions, since most of them face problems in providing collateral for security purpose and another critical problem is having trade license/registration because bank do not provide loans without trade license (IDLC, 2014). [17]

The definite figure of population in Bangladesh is a dubious character. However it is not at altogether controversial that Bangladesh is one of the overpopulated countries of the world. The growing inclination approximately population creates it entirely moreover strong that are flattering the most precariously compactly populous nation momentarily, if the rate of intensification is not upturned. Each year two million knowledge or educated fledgling men and women are coming to the job arcade. It is approximately dreadful to enthrall this dynamic workforce in the prevailing job souk either in public or in private sector. Better business opportunity can give relax for several reasons to work differently. It is termed that entrepreneurship development of Bangladesh is now a good pictures that helps to diminish the pressure on job market. Women entrepreneurship will be the great way to diminish the pressure at overall work opportunity as per the proportional matter of development to economies the country. Beauty parlor is a profitable business for a female, It will cost Taka 0.1-0.2 million as initial investments and there is a growing market for its services in any town in Bangladesh (The Financial Express, Bangladesh, 2011). it is the process of women empowerment that range on the women entrepreneurship .Entrepreneurship obliges as the reagent in the progression of industrial development and economic tumor.

By this way to support the facilities, the procedures, and the stratagems advantage to transformation the picture of Bangladesh expressly for the women who wants to encourage herself to breaks the barriers wants to work out of home, wants to be more self-reliant Chamber-of-commerce of Bangladesh data from 2000 signposts that only 8.3 % of the self-employed population of Bangladesh was women. The condition was better-quality in town areas where 15.4 % of the self-employed were female. The proportion for pastoral areas was only 7.4 %. Less than 10 % of all business entrepreneurs in Bangladesh were women. on the behalf of SME by Micro Industries Development Assistance and Services] (MIDAS), 2009] a study publicized some evidence, 87.9 % of woman entrepreneurs in Bangladesh ­writhed from a deficiency of capital, 21.3 % did not have decent marketing chances, 20.4 % wished they had better access to raw provisions, 14.2 % lacked skilled workers, 9% did not have any prior business experience, 8.7 % were not trained themselves and 2.5 % struggled with proper interpretations care. With the expansion of women entrepreneurship by the global focusing, it is looked-for sufficient capital with the requirements human resources for providing the superior services to the customer. In 2003 to now employees’ expansion is increasing preferring the position in the expansion level of business. Although in past of the parlor business were maintained with a few number of customer But it is increasing at highly. Customer is the king of market. Most of the people think that beautification is one of the components for exhibiting the world. Getting the global response, view of Indian & western culture & growing the area of promotional tools. Now customers are more careful about the beautification. As a result, Beauty parlor business is increasing. In 2003, 2004, 2005 most of the people are involved with the number of services like haircut, facial etc. But it is noticeable is that people are more aware to show the world with full of scenery beautification. The Beauty parlor business has become popular to the people who want to start a small business with small capital to earn more without any risk. So, the number of beauty parlor is increasing. As a result, the competition among them is very acute. The businessman use updates technologies which is expensive. The beauty parlors that use modern products & technologies are in the better position than the beauty parlors that don’t use modern products & technologies. In the earlier, the customer was not careful about their health &beauty as the comparison manner of now. But nowadays customers are changing their views and attitude greatly. So, the owners of the beauty parlors are to purchase foreign products to satisfy the appearing customer. The beauty parlors who don’t use foreign products cannot survive in this business. In the past, this business was not considered as a profitable earning source and make more self-reliant of women for the entrepreneurship business but it has been possible to expand rapidly due to quick collective variation. The number of beauty parlors is increasing due to the change of ideas & concept of entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs can easily start this business with small capital without high risk & can maintain their families beside this business. This business has also become profitable due to the number of customers. This is why; the number of entrepreneurs in this business is increasing day by day specially women to become more self-reliant. The Beauty parlor business has been changed due to the radical change of technologies. Technologies have become essential factor in beauty parlor business to modernize this business. Technologies help the beauty parlor business in providing better service to the customer. So, the beauty parlors are increasing the use of technologies to satisfy their customers. Increasing training facilities drive the entrepreneurs to make more elegant type of business. The increasing number of beauty parlors on the consistent manner of this it is need competent employees. To make the employees qualified, training facilities should be available. The training center provides training facilities to the employees who are interested of this ground.

And the services are also provided by the women. Most of the beauticians found are aboriginal people. It is maximum involvement; minimum expectation and physical fitness make them attached with this job. While doing the study it is originated that most of the beauty products used in the beautification work came from the foreign countries.

Local customer have limited demand here no information is exchanging in various regional or geographical areas. As a result, the owner of the beauty parlor does not understand the exact customer supply & demand. Labor turnover is the indispensible hindrance for expanding beauty parlor. For labor turnover, skilled employees are not find out or specified. As a result, these create a shortage of skilled manpower. In addition, for labor turnover, new employees are recruited by various costing procedures of employment. It is thinkable to encourage the women to involve in the small type business.

The formation of beauty parlor is based on mostly self –investment. But the organizational assistance is essential for expanding beauty parlor activities.

As a result, the organization is not able to come in forward & is not able to change with update technology & information. For establishing a beauty parlor, various complex formalities are maintained by the owner .A long time is spent to get a trade license & trade mark to start a beauty parlor business. For the lack of proper lodging facilities, various beauty parlors are established in various places. As a result, there is no co-ordination among this beauty parlor in same activities. Promotional activities are very important to expand beauty parlor business. But in Rangpur region, there is less chance to perform promotional activities.
