I learnt a lot of things as it was my first job out of hairstyling school. My managers were nice, helpful, and patient while I was still learning. They were also my co-workers as it was a small salon. Hardest part of the job was the salary, you don't make much hourly as a hairstylist and there's really no way to make more so you work for your tips. Most enjoyable part of the job, I loved doing hair and the people I worked with were very nice.
