What we look for at GS HAIR:
• Professional Dress
• Positive Attitude
• Career Oriented
• Fully Licensed
There is nothing more fulfilling than a successful salon career. Experienced professionals can set their own schedule, make great money and love going to work every day! It takes a lot of hard work to build your client base. GS HAIR creates a blueprint for success that you can follow. We give a lot and expect a lot at GS HAIR. We hire the smile and train the skill. So attitude means everything to us.
INTERNS We hire most of our stylists directly from our pool of interns. Only by working side-by-side with you, can we determine if we make a great team. Interns dedicate one day a week working directly with GS HAIR Owner and Vidal Sassoon Alumnus, Greg Saumure. Internships are unpaid. You receive free, one-on-one training in exchange for assisting. In addition, we provide a training class every Tuesday night so you can further practice and refine your skills. As an additional benefit, interns are allowed full use of the salon floor -the other 4 days a week to book thier clients. Intern use of the salon floor is free of charge. It’s a great way to receive one-on-one assistance, additional training and begin building your client base. Keeping 100% of what you earn, 4 days a week. Competition for the intern program is fierce and we only accept the best.
STYLISTS Stylists are chosen for the floor based on their skill level. The path from Intern to Stylist is very fast for some, longer for others. We are a commission-based salon. You can progress from Stylist to Renter on our floor, without having to change salons and loose your client base.
BOOTH RENTERS A portion of our styling floor is reserved especially for booth renters. You pay a flat rate and enjoy all the benefits of an established salon with an excellent reputation. We offer full-time reception. Beverage Service for your clients. Towel Service and Professional Cleaning. We provide salon Print Advertising. We also have various Social Media outlets we have contracts with such as Yelp and Facebook. You will have access to template advertising. We have a full-time marketing department that will write a Biography for you. Unknown Booth Renters may be required to Cut Test. We do not offer part-time booth rentals.
The Cut Test.
We have people who want to work for us and never show up to the interview for fear of ‘The Cut Test’. We want to know exactly where your skills are. We want to make sure the quality of service we provide is the very best. Our cut test ensures we know exactly where your skill set lies, and where you need training, education and improvement. Don’t be afraid of the Cut Test. Remember, we hire the smile, train the skill. Attitude is everything.
What is The Nordstrom Way?
A basic philosophy and set of beliefs for doing business. A promise if you will, that GS HAIR translated into a Customer’s Bill of Rights. It’s about actions behind our words. Nordstrom’s Department store became America’s #1 Customer Service Company for following this belief systems with religious fervor. It is a blueprint for any business truly believing in pleasing your clients. The Nordstrom Way explains that you must develop relationships. You must listen. You must extend genuine acts of human kindness. You must go over and above.
We believe it. We live it. We hire by it. We remember it every single day on our way to the salon. If you have never read The Nordstrom Way, by Robert Spector, please add it to your reading list immediately. It’s a fast read. It’s concise. There are great stories illustrating the philosophies. And you will have many “Ah-ha!” moments. If you want to become a member of our Professional Styling Team, you should have intimate knowledge of the concept.
