Hairstylist/Manager (Former Employee) – Strathroy, ON – 12 October 2017
Benefits and good working enviroment. Very busy locations so there is alot of work. Area managers can be brutal at times. Was a minumum amount of money you had to bring in to keep you job. Pretty much the only downfall of the company

They overwork you. Don't really care about breaks or lunch time. High turn over rate and difficult managers to work with or they strive to work you to the ground. Expect you to work long hours with no incentive and only pay minimum wage.
Work you hard and only care about the customers not employees
HAIRSTYLIST (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 26 July 2017
I was an apprentice. I didn't enjoy the responsibility if the client didn't like their hair. I felt bad so this was too stressful for me. The owner was nice and gave me a good opportunity. they taught when needed and allowed you to make some of your own decisions.

This was by far my most favourite place to work. The staff was great, the clients were great and I felt like we were more of a family then coworkers. I wish it would have paid a little more otherwise I would never have left.

Great location. Some staff were great to work with except the mamager. She was very hard to get along with and wasn't management material. Just because you worked there longer then others DOESN'T make you managment !#
Manager/Hairstylist (Former Employee) – Cobourg,on – 4 June 2017
I worked for this company for 24yrs. They were a great company but in the last year I was there they changed for the worst. They think you should work non stop not to even go to the washroom if there was customers in the store. Sometimes you need 5 mins if you haven't stopped in 2-3 hrs. The supervisor we just didn't get along. The CEO is a b. The owners never even called me too see why I left when they knew I loved my job.. if you love hairdressing don't stay there long it well take the fun out of it
Hairstylist Apprentice (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 March 2017
Typical day was come in open, make sure station was set up, and be ready for clients to come in. cleaning and making sure towels were ready was very important part of my day. I learned to be patient, and more communication skills. Management was good overall can work on their communication skills a little more. Hardest part of my job is I don't think I got a lot of help from my peers but I managed. I loved coming to work and cutting, coloring hair and interacting with people every day. I loved working and being a hair stylist.

You do work long hours and the pay is ok but you do make tips and that is a bonus. The give you your lunches and breaks, which is a bonus because usually being a hairstylists sometimes you don't get t eat
Stylist Keyholder (Former Employee) – Bracebridge, ON – 8 February 2017
My first experience working for this type of salon but I figured I should experience EVERY type of salon. This is an incredibly fast paced environment to work in and IMO these ladies are underpaid. Serving anywhere from 20 to 35 clients each per day (at least at my location)..the stylists are rockstars. All of them.
Cash tips $$
Overworked, underpaid, finger cuts from working so quickly
Stylist (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 28 December 2016
typical day on the job is opening up the salon witch is very easy to learn clients usually wait for you to open up and can work by yourself until mid day witch means more tips for you. Clients are amazing and friendly can make a clientele very easily. Co-workers are all team players and there to help you learn and grow. hours change weekly as long as you are a hard worker you can count on 30 hours atleast. Your tips and commission for retail selling will make yup the extra hours aswell.
free classes to help you grow as a stylist
