Hair Stylist (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 23, 2016
Las Vegas NV hourly pay rate is low compared to other states 7.00 hr. (below minimum wage!) You work hard and it is a hustle. Tips vary depending on your hustle. Great place to start off at to build clientel or have as a second job, but not recommended for long term. They offer product training and continuing education as a plus, but the job can be wear and tear on the body due to high expections. I personally averaged 20 haircuts a day and my feet are paying for it!
Lastly, they wrote me personal check as my final check when I quit and mailed it to me (apparently that's something the owner thinks is ok to do once you leave the company, but it's not professional at all). I even asked for a check stub, but received no response, extremely tacky and I gave a two week notice. I was cheated at least $200. My final thought is: as stylists, we should have a union so that our talent and special skills are not exploited by instiutions such as this.
product training and continuing education, tips
wear and tear on body, low pay, high expectations
