How can I make my hair salon a multimillion-dollar business?

I've been in business for 17 years. I've hired independent contractors as stylists and also hourly people, which ends up costing more. How do I make this work?

It's also hard to offer more benefits because we don't make enough money. And with the economy the way it is, some clients are not coming as often. I need help.
