Stylist (Former Employee) – Nashua, NH – April 19, 2016
First off all the prices were just raised. To be able to make commission your service sales have to be $860 a week. To get 10% retail sales you have to sell $120 a week. You are paid an hourly wage of $8 dollars an hour if you don't make commission . If you don't make commission at least once a month you get written up. Every 2-3 months they do free wash, cut and blowdry especially for the needy for 5 weeks (3 days a week , say goodbye to regulars). Outside life is not allowed, the salon must be your #1. Short staffed so forget vacation or requesting days off. No holiday pay, no sick pay, you have to work both weekend days before major holiday's. If you become a shift leader you get an extra $20 in your check, that means you do a ton of paperwork and all the manager has to do is schedules and email. Overworked and under paid for only $8.00 an hour. Manager and district manager play favorites. You will find some great coworkers and some not so great. The not so great are the bullies/ brown noser. This one has the best hours but the worst attitude, has already been written up for physically assaulting another coworker but not fired.....interesting? But hey if you still want to work in this place that will demand everything from you don't say I didn't warn you! !!
nasty coworker, no time off, no benefits, inexperienced management
Key Holder and Sales Associate and Cosmetologist (Former Employee) – Owings Mills, MD – July 10, 2016
When I first started out at haircuttery, everything was great. They offer a lot of classes to get a new cosmetologist more secure with their skills and gives them a new level of confidence. Over time you do build a book and get secure however what I found was job security wasn't always a thing. If you fell out of commission to many times you could be fired and if clients weren't coming in those days it was extremely stressful at times making you have to catch up your week over the weekend. They are open most holidays and thus not giving you a lot of room for family and they are open everyday of the week. They would only if you were part time give you a maximum of 2 weeks a year for vacation and only a limited amount of days if you were sick. Certain sick days would take out of your vacation time. I appreciated working here because I gained a decent amount of experience and I learned a lot from my Manager. She was awesome however I can't claim there wasn't drama within the world place. After a long time being there it seemed like you got trapped in a stale mate not being able to progress yourself more. But for people who are just starting out and want to build their experience and confidence this was a great place to start.
Experience, Paycheck, Awards, Team work
No Holidays, Small Vacation time, Not many health benefits
Potential to learn here, build clientele, make guarenteed pay and tips
Hair Stylist (Former Employee) – South Florida, FL – January 20, 2017
Good place for those who are new to the industry or who don't have a clientele. Dress code is black and white. You'll be using Redken color. Must learn to upsell clients. You will achieve commission easier by doing more color than just haircuts alone.
Has walk ins, easy to apply for job, got hired quickly, can learn a lot from other stylists, offers free technical classes
Cannot book appointments for yourself unless you become a "master stylist", pressure to sell retail, drama
Work for hair cuttery for little while but want to say that the company is great to work for. They give you the opportunity to be with your family an always work with you with your hours . Great management an willing to train you more so you learn all you need to learn.
Assistant Salon Leader (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 13, 2016
I learned a lot from my experiences. Not all management is negative, but unfortunately I worked for a pessimistic manager who did not encourage or want to advance those underneath her. It's unfortunate because this company could be better if they required better management staff and required them to be hair stylists. A non-stylist doesn't understand what it takes to be in the salon full time.
Stylist/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Drexel hill – February 7, 2017
Very great company to work for! Amazing leadership and guidance. Definitely interested in staying part time, I've been with this company for over a year and although I am satisfied, I desire more, I wish to progress more in life
A typical day at hair cuttery is unpredictable I learned patience and time management my co-workers are easy to work with the hardest part of my job is not having any clients that day the most enjoyable part of my job is that I change someone appearance just to give them some confidence and make a difference in the day.

Salon Leader/ Multiple salons (Former Employee) – Forked River, NJ – February 27, 2017
I would work here again. I had to move and the location of my salon was too far from home. Depending on your district leader and salon leader you could have a great experience with continuing free education
Stylist (Former Employee) – Vineland, NJ – July 12, 2016
I enjoyed doing women's cuts and colors along with waxing. I learned different cutting techniques. Management was very fun loving and down to earth, I also was glad to have direct help when I needed it. Hardest part of the job Men's scissor cuts. Most enjoyable satisfying the customer and going above what they asked for.
