So I’m just going to put it out there, stylists do not make hourly wages or a salary. I could not think of what to write today until I reflected on the amount of no shows we have had recently. Stylists only make money while their chair has a client in it. The same goes for most owners, contrary to the belief the owners keep all the money. With the overhead of running a business and keeping inventory stocked, a beauty salon can be quite costly. I’m not sure why people make appointments and do not come, I would love comments on this. I thought I would write this to help educate the general public, so it could help people appreciate their stylists more. We have very demanding jobs, physical labor, offering therapy lol, and trying to please everyone can be very daunting. With that said I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I love my job and my clients.
