Hair Stylist (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – February 9, 2016
My manager wasn't the nicest person. She seemed to only care for herself. All the other stylists were very nice and helpful, they helped me fade my clipper cuts so much better. I hated that i could barely take a lunch, my manager actually got mad that i wanted to take my full 30 minute lunch. I would definitely not go back.
Hair Stylist (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 7, 2016
Started in 1997, was a stylist and then asst manager and then store manager. Lots of drama, stricked rules, money was good in Minnesota and Wisconsin, but in Nevada you could make more standing on a street corner.
Shear winds was a company ran by terrible selfish people who preyed upon low income workers. They were abusive to staff and management alike and I left this entire industry due to my experience with this company. It was terrible and I would never ever ever work for this company or in this field again nor would I ever recommend this company to anyone.
Stylist (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – February 2, 2016
Learned how to do 15 plus hair cuts a day. My customer service skills are much better too thanks to working directly with customers. everyone that I worked with was very nice and always happy and always trying to help each other out. the hardest part was days having a bad customer and they yell or try to put you down you learn to just keep on going and forget about it.
I started at this company straight out of school because of its promising additional training programs and all of the help and support you are suppose to get. You get it if you learn quickly. This is a good company to work for though. It's better to of tried here, than to never know.
bonuses, rewards for growing and pretty much everything else
Hairstylist/Cosmetologist (Former Employee) – Covington, GA – January 16, 2016
A typical day you come into work setup all your equipment. Then depending on if you open for that day, you count the money drawer to make sure all money is balanced before opening. Through out your shift if you have any down time you go through the shop making sure everything is nicely picked up and wiped down, the floor is vacuumed or swept. Make sure the trash is taken out from the previous night and make sure the bank deposit is taken and all the proper paperwork is faxed to the main office. If you close that day you make sure all the money adds up make sure your station and the shop is spotless and vacuumed, swept and mopped.
Assistant Manager of the location (Former Employee) – Fishers, IN – January 14, 2016
I did not join this company to be there long term, just long enough to get some experience. The pay scale was very confusing when converted into a new system, and my store was very slow as it was in a discreet location. A typical day at work was sitting in the back doing manager's paperwork or trying to keep the product shelves clean from dust and hair. The store itself never stayed very clean unless we knew the owners or State Board might stop in. Most of my coworkers were lazy and did not take direction from management well. The management at my store was very self- centered when our original manager had been promoted. The hardest part of my job was trying to get the rest of the team on board with keeping the store clean. The most enjoyable part of my job was providing haircuts and establishing relationships with the clients.
Great opportunity to learn and sharpen your hairstyling skills
Hairstylist (Former Employee) – Surprise, AZ – January 13, 2016
I enjoyed being busy and learning to be quicker at cutting hair. It is nice that they provide training. The opportunity for advancement is there and the potential to increase your salary. The manager was great to work with.
