Attention All Cosmetology School Graduates

by Kathy | Jul 23, 2021

Don’t Know Where to Start?

Don’t worry…we’ve been in your shoes; you are not alone!

There are some salons out in the world that offer further education and are willing to work with you to get you where you want to be!

When I started searching for salons, I had no idea where to start or what I was looking for. All I knew was that I wanted to enhance the fundamentals I had learned in school and build my confidence behind the chair.

Life as an Associate in a Summit Salon Program

The program sets a foundation in order to help you succeed behind the chair. As an associate, you work hand-in-hand with a mentor who shows you the skills you will need to succeed. Such as client consultations, formulations, haircuts, hair color, product knowledge, pre-booking, retention, and setting goals to ensure your success. 

The summit program at The Hair Spa is an 18-month educational requirement, as an associate you are trained by the highest leveled stylist and work with that stylist behind the chair.

The Hair Spa has developed a culture of honesty, integrity, trust, and friendship. With the support of each other, the possibilities of growth in our careers are endless.

ASSOCIATE PROGRAM: Our Associate Program is a 12-18 month comprehensive hands-on experience that provides training in the areas of technical skill, guest handling and business building.

Our associates work with 9 dedicated service providers to grow into a skilled technician. Like our service providers, our Associate Program has a performance-based level system. There are 6 levels. Each level has specific skill sets that are the focus of training for that level only. Once goals are met for that Level, there is an opportunity to move to the next level, at that point, there is a raise in hourly wages, and you receive a new set of goals for the next level.

Our salon provides an environment for growth, learning, and support. It is our commitment that our associates graduate from our program with a seamless transition from associate to stylist with the skills necessary for success in our industry.
