Hello,
I was wondering if anyone out there knows of a nursing /retirement village in the columbus ohio area that needs a hairstylist. I have lots of experience but it seems that alot of the nursing homes now want a larger company handling this. I really disagreee with this as I feel that the person with the contract needs to be viible

I do agree that the stylists that work in the salon of the nursing vacility should be the main overseer of the homehealth salons.

Many times I noticed when an out of state company was incharge of this service, there was a lack, of client comes first, attitude. The stylist should make the money not the ones that do not even touch the hairs of the sick. Doing hair in a nursing home requires much more time and the surroundings are most of the time kinda sad. The stylist has to do all of the leg work on getting each customer and rolling them to the area to where the service is performed.

Many have alheimerzes or dementia. The company collects the charge from the families and then it is several weeks sometimes months before the stylists actually gets paid.
Many customers have contagious scalp disorders and YOU MUST TAKE PRECAUTIONS. Proper hygiene is necessary for yourself as well the customer. There needs to be at least three hairstylist per 100 residents. When one is sick one can fillin. The time involved is more intense than the normal salon scene. All of the above information is written and spoken with experience under my belt and on my hands. The hairsalon in the elderly assisted and nursing home atmosphere should be taken with more consideration than a grain of salt. All hairs are numbered and cosmetologist owe it to the elderly to take care of all their haircare needs in a very professional manner. I understand the medicare and medicad supply a $30.00 allowance towards haircuts and shampoos and perms. Let the stylist collect on her time spent behindthechair.com.

cindy in Columbus, Ohio said: Hello,what I do as a hairstylist in retirement/nursing homes/ alzheimers/ assisted living facilities. This service is so very rewarding. These clients so very much appreciate seeing us each week or when needed. I really think that the person who contracts with these facilities must be required to work in them to. I believe that they need help for filling in or just being able to provide these services if the salons have alot of residents wanting services. I just think that if these facilities contract with companies that are large and do not even provide any of the services on a one on one bases that the personal touch is not there. I personally love my residents and make my self available to the families to discuss their needs and wants. Yes, it is my income, but I care. They are not just a last name on my bookkeeping that some one faxes or mails to me in order to get their pay checks with me operating in a office. Paying the bills for the supplies that they call in because I wouldn't have any idea of the products they need to care for these clients because again I never have met this person. I am sorry to all of you who have never had the opportunity to provide services in this type of setting. It is my calling!!

I work an nursing home and have for past 19years I say it is very rewarding, these little people need extra attion more then evey one knows you will be the last person they truely enjoy and trust to tell you what is wrong my experence has been termindus write to me if you like Monday49@aol.com

Yes, it truly is a calling! I love being a cosmetologist in the nursing home/retirement centers. I have owned and operated 6 salon & spas, a cosmetic make-over studio, and a personal image development studio. I then decided to go into the nursing home after my mother suffered a terrible illness and past away. I tell you, it is better than all the big money, spa atmosphere you could ever imagine. These sweet elderly fall in love with you. You become so attached to them. It was like I was doing my mother's hair. After a battle of cancer and having a double mastectomy myself, I am ready to go back! I can't wait. I have an interview this Saturday that may be a job for me. Pray I get it for me. I would be so happy!

Hello,
I am so happy to see others feel like I do. It really is so very nice to hear your opinions also. I just hope some day when any of us may be in this situation that someone will be there for us. I am still looking I wish people could just be happy with one or even 4 or 5 contracts, NOT *20** 30** 40**. I do not want to change my profession but it is getting very close to me having to take a job of any kind. Are any of you having this same problem finding these communities wanting to hire a stylist that cares? I now know that if you get the chance to have a contract doing this you should realize that you have the best part of being a hairstylist. We are so lucky!!! Take care to all!
p.s. Good Luck Trennia I hope you get the postion!!

I have recently taken over for a women at a nursing home. She has been the hairdresser for over 20 years. I'm not to fond of the setting lotion that she uses, i'm planning on using a paul mitchell lotion. For all of you experienced wash and set people, do you suggest i tease all over the head or just in parts. Any tips or comments on the sets would be helpful.

Congrats!!This is great!! I love what I do. I have done this for almost 35 years. I use a great deal of very small brush rollers. They are hard to find but I can give you some information where i found some. I use the Generic Paul Mitchell styling lotion at Sally's. I use Design Freedom Perms as they don't get frizzy, work well with all meds they may be taking mostly blue rods. Some like alot of teasing, most like just a little to hold it together. seems like my ladies like alot of curl so if an aide runs a brush in it they still have some curl. I have found a shampoo I really like the (honey almond comes in gallons(at sally's) very reasonable. My prices are fairly good, might be alittle high for some s/s $16, h/c $14 men, $15 for women,perms $60, tints $44. If you haven't heard about the shampoo hood let me know, it saves so much time and much easier on the resident and us.there is a few cheap ones out there but this lady has a patent on hers and they are much stronger and helps prevent (most of the time) getting them wet. Well if I can help more please let me know. Good luck

Thanks so much! I was planning on using the paul mitchell styling lotion too. Although I'm not big on the generics, as i find them to be watered down. I plan on putting mine in a spray bottle. I'm going on ebay this morning to see about the brush rollers. Do you mean they have the same bristles as the black old fashioned brushes? Seems like they would be hard to clean... Design Freedom seems to be the perm of choice for this women as well. Thats so funny that we all seem to be on the same page with products. The hair spray that I used was by matrix essentials and it's called profoma. I start in 2 weeks, so i have time. Something new that I need is cosm/barber insurance. I honestly have never been asked until now. I'm getting prices from my insurance agent..... Do you set the top rollers to the side or back? I noticed when i went in for my interview, the ladies all had the roller going to the side. I always do a good job, but with new ladies, it might be tough to get them to like my style! Lots of questions i know... thanks Cindy

There is a lot to learn in doing there hair in nursing home first of all you have to be patient,second you will be moving in all directions your body didnt know and third you have to move fast,youre least worry is the products first learn about them and easy on the spray

Hi Lisa,
I too work in a nursing home for the past 11 years. Love, love,love these folks! I'm truly interested with finding out where to get the small brush rollers. I've been online an at sally's. I'm also lookin for info on my rights as a contractor. I need to find out who has the right to increase the prices at the nursing home. I can't get them to go up after 11 years. Everything else has gone up, even the cost of living. They seem to run much to much of my bussiness. any info is much appriecated...

cachebeauty.com is a website i found the rollers. put "brush rollers" up in the search box and it brings you to the link. I'm going to order them today. I'll let you know how long they take to ship. As far as who has the rights for increases, i'm confused about that myself. The administrator told me she called around to other homes in our areas and asked how much they charge. I'm just following the price as it's been. It seems as though we would have the right unless we were actually an employee of the homes, which we are not.

I also work in a nursing home, what I do is check all the other facitlies around the aera wite them down and price list present to the administrator, and put down what you are asking,explain about everything that has gone up also, plus do they charge you to be there?? Are they taking a cut of youre pay as 20% or what?? So go from there also do you buy the supplies?/ All theses make a difference to but you should have a increase.

Hey Mundy an Lisa,
Thanks for the site! an I wanted to inform ya little more about the questions u asked. I don't get charged to be there, they use to take 10% but that was when they bought the products, now I buy everything. I called 6 county homes in my area, and they all have different types of workers, LNA's that are stylists an get paid at the top of there pay scale an the home buys the products, contractors an they make increases every 2 years, whether it's 2 or 3 dollars. so that's it in a nut shell, Also, to Caroline, the name of the lady is Sharons Hoods, she's great they cost 16.98 and that includes shippin, I always buy 3 at a time cuz I use one for colors,perms,an just to shampoo, I can do lounge beds,wheel chair folks who don't fit on my hydrolic lifter, that tips the wheel chair back into the sink, and it's very safe an they don't seem to be worried about falling, it's no bigger than a triangled shape skate board. it's great, but the address for the hoods is sharon stepp,P.O.Box 435.Lake Villa.IL 60046 (847)356-1935, she's just great. she doesn't have a web site so I call her and give my charge card an she sends them asap.. your gonna love them an her..the pic's don't show it but you put it around the ears,leaving them out, and pull it tight to the forhead, I explain every time i use it that it's tight but they won't get wet.. they don't seem to mind once you explain... good luck... an thanks all... this is just a great site...

Hi Kimberly their is a supplier Kuhlman Beauty 537 Southlake Blvd.
Richmond, VA 23236 PH: 800-572-4247 that has or can get you the small brush rollers. I prefer the small blue Just tell the guy Reggie Sue May told you to call he will know the one you need.

I have been working in Health Care Salons for 22 yrs and am a Stylist/Contractor too and if you have been working there for 11 yrs and no price increases something is WRONG.Make a new price list I would up sets, cuts $2.00 and perms $5.00 and along with a letter stating that as of a curtain date usually 30 day notice is sufficient the new price will be, explain the cost if supplies, insurance, that it's time for a price increase.
let me know how it turns out good luck

cat turner in Hernando, Mississippi

I work in nursing home in Memphis for about 8 years. Each home had a different pricing contract.
Even though the families paid for the styles up front the governmet alots $30.00 for each resident each month.

The nursing homes forget to tell the family members this information on purpose. The nursing home then lets the families feed the kiddy that is used for the hair salon expenses.

As best as I remember the prices were 10.00 to 12.00 for a hair shampoo and set.

The haircut and set was $25.00

A perm and h/c and set was $40.00

Manicures #10.00 pedicures $20.00

I think color was about $20.00 plus the set

After you make your record 0f charges the home then takes out $20.00 and you supply the products. It NOT FAIR cause you do all the hard work and deal with the sick. The nursing home salon scene is alot more labor than a regular
salon. At least the nursing home should give you benefits to make up for all of the hard work.

I then stopped doing the nursing homes because they would fall behind on payments. I let one get in the whole for $1,000.00 then I said No More.

At that I started doing only the home bound in private homes. I charged $35.00 for a set.
haircuts only $35.00
Haicut and set $50.00
Perms, cut amnd set $80.00
Manicures 35.00
Pedicures $40.00
together Pedicure and manicure would be $50.00 done at the same time.
I made a good living for 10 years and reported my earning to IRS.

Good luck and I will check back later
