You have to work very hard to make money in this company.(as a hair stylist)
Offer a lot of chemical services if you want to get paid.
Haircuts and blowdrys all day will surely burn you out fast.
Every man for himself when it comes to the walk in list.
Very competive environment.
You are responsible for receptionist duties(scheduling other stylists appointment), janitor work(mopping floors),
selling $80-$120 in retail weekly, greeting every customer that walks in, rebooking each client, while always having a smile on your face. You have to deal with high stress and impatient clientele. Don't take it personal.
Make your money and mind your business.
Yes. If you want to make money and build clientele fast, you need to work on the busiest days(Fri, Sat, Sun).
Once you get your own clients you can rebook them to come on the slower days during the week.
Need to raise pay and commission. Give yearly bonuses.
Pay more commission to stylists.
Change the pricing in the busy high volume locations .
$18 for a blow dry in Bethesda Md is ridiculous. Even clients are hesistant when they see how low the pricing is.
This means I could only get about $7.50
Once taxes and commission is taken out.
They still say they have health insurance (it’s lousy) and 401K,but they don’t have 401k anymore
It’s next to impossible to get time off,you have to request way in advance,find so eone to cover your shift and can NEVER take off holidays.
The last Haircuttery location was severely overstaffed,even there they made it extremely difficult to take any time off
Receptionist are paid hourly.
The interview process is non existent,if they do a technical interview it is done without observing or checking results.They take any warm body to work there.

Yes you can get request, and build a cliental, appointment are limited to when you first start to one day per week then it's walk in basis, however customers can request you those days.
