Hairstylist duties, keyholder (Current Employee) – Palmdale, CA – September 27, 2016
for me, this isnt a forever job, its a great job to learn and start out with, good education, you get hourly(minimum) and tips(sometimes no tips) i am a keyholder and get paid the same amount as all the other stylists, it sucks, you will never be appreciated for what you do, worked like a slave, sometimes no breaks, all women(ugh)... managers arent mature... on a typical day as keyholder/stylist, i would come about 15 mins early, open shop, turn on all appliances,fill up sanitizer buckets, start laundry, put money in the drawer, etc then when open time hits, open the doors, take haircuts, colors, waxes, this company mainly focuses on what you can upsell, treatments...PRODUCTS>>PRODUCTS>>PRODUCTS, its sad how much this company just wants you to make money for them, you have to be a salesman, i dont know about you, but i went to school to do hair, which i thought this company was about, but now i know, they only want MONEY...
the hardest part of the job is dealing with crazies or somehow not giving someone what they want even though i tried my very best..sometimes you just cant make people happy no matter what you do or how nice you are...
the most enjoyable part of my job is doing hair and meeting people everyday..
if you want a starting position doing hair, this is the job for you straight outta school.. also just remember the employee turnover rate is super high... sometimes we are short staffed so we have to work like 9 or 10 days in a row..
overall its bearable but i wouldnt stay with this company for more than 2 years...
discounts on products, always having hair done for free, steady clientele, hourly wage
Supercuts is a great begging place after that move on.
Cosmetologist (Current Employee) – Deer Park, TX – September 27, 2016
Working with Supercuts is great for beginners to get in the field then once your confidence in your skill move on. Supercuts is constant walk in, it can be very tiring. And watch out if they say flexible schedule because then you maybe working crazy shifts some times.
Communication is good willing to work with your schedule, get good tips some time
When short handed on people can get crazy, 7.25 per hour
Stylist/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Clifton, NJ – October 14, 2015
the most enjoyable part of the job was making people happy with there looks, hardest part was accepting that i couldn't make everyone happy. My coworkers were amazing, we always worked as a team member. Management was negative at the workplace. Experience was great & learned so much. Overall, work experience added value to me as a person however the lack of advancement opportunities lead me to seek other outlets.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CA – March 28, 2016
I got hired with Supercuts when I was a senior in high school, 2004. There were about 6 women working at this location at the time, and all were very nice and helpful. We would have a weekly meeting which helped get everyone on the same track and discuss any issues that anyone might of had. I was the first person a customer would see, and everyone was always greeted with a smile and a hello. My job entitled to clean, sweep, organize, money transactions, train new receptionists, and inventory. The hardest part was not being able to work more hours. I was busy with school so it made it hard to cover someone's shifts. My manager was always understanding if I had a school event and make sure I had time off when I needed it. I loved the staff I worked with and still get my hair cut by one of the stylist with who is now the current manager.
Loving environment with great people working there
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – September 14, 2016
While I worked at this location, from the very start I was welcomed into the place like I was family. The manager Leslie Attwood is such a professional, effective, and upbeat superior to work under. I loved working there and still stop in to say hello to all the familiar faces
Made life long friends
I was the rceptonist, and did not get to sit down while at the desk
Cosmetolgist (Current Employee) – Keene, NH – April 20, 2016
I worked for HK Enterprise, they are a franchisee. They are WONDERFUL people. I wouldn't work for any other, especially the corporate stores. I learned a lot about the industry. There are always contests and promotions for the staff and clients. My co-workers are fantastic! The location I worked at, it is hard to advance. In SW NH there are not many other stores around and the upper management seems to forget we exist.
Great hourly pay, always busy, benefits
Very little chance of promtion, incompenent Area Supervisors
a typical day at work tends to get really bus. The employees priority is to satisfy the customer. Everyone must keep their station clean and organized, also keep track of time and the appointments. My Co workers are great! Everyone is very respectful and we all work as a team throughout the day.
Loved the people i worked with and the owners of the place. Great location and we stayed very busy at all times! The uniforms are comfortable and cute and we got to wear tennis shoes which is a very important factor for a hair stylist. Watching sports all day was fun also!
Stylist (Current Employee) – Sarasota, FL – February 16, 2016
I enjoy what I do, doing hair allows me to express myself. I love my clients that I have obtained over the years. As far as my place of employment, there is no room for opportunities, it comes with no benefits.
Manager, Stylist (Former Employee) – O'Fallon, IL – May 12, 2016
Invaluable experience setting up a new salon and recruiting employees. Working with the Franchise development department was enlightening and fun. Learning Paul Mitchell color line from an expert. Lots of products available. Most enjoyable part of the job was the clients. Hardest part of the job was disciplining staff.
Hairstylist/Cosmetologist (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – September 9, 2016
This company has a hard but long training program that is well worth your time. The amount of services they offer is a variety. I love working with color but specialized in cutting, so getting into color was great. Great hours

Customer Service Manager /Case Mangement (Former Employee) – Edmond, OK – December 28, 2015
Work to create a style customer service is very important in this job. I learned to use my time management skills and multitask. I can now build a great team of stylist with good work ethic to take to any employer. The hardest part of this job was the high rate of turn over in the industry. I enjoyed this job because it allowed me to communicate and build my customer service and management skills.

I love working for this franchise. They care about the stylists that work for them. The education is continuing. They always are coming up with ways to better the staff, whether is be with hands-on techniques or with management classes.
stylist (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – December 20, 2015
enter clients in the computer. call the clients back to my station. do a haircut or color or style on the client. when finish walk the client to the register, where I would total out their service. take their money, and return their change. clean up my station. and repeat this all day. at the end of the day total out the register. count the cash in register. clean up salon and get the salon ready for the next day.
