Industry Career Statstics

The grim reality for long term success in our industry is low. Statistics show less than 8% of cosmetology graduates are still working as hair stylists 5 years after graduating. That number reflects all stylists, including booth renters, part time stylists and those working from an in home salon. Choosing the right salon will help avoid becoming a statistic.

Hair Salon Associate Program 

Many cosmetology graduates look for a salon that offers an associate program because statistics show stylists who started as an assistant have longer and more successful salon careers. Yet very few salons offer an education based associate program where a newer stylist has the support of experienced stylists as mentors. Studio 39 Salon has been doing advanced training for 20 years. There is a saying in our industry that graduating cosmetology means you have a license to learn. You must have a high school diploma for college. Cosmetology schools are like the high schools in our industry, but salon associate programs are like college. This is how a stylist becomes skilled to level up to an expert stylist quickly. 

 Salon Assistants Become Master Stylists 

Quality education is rare in our industry. Many try to profit from the lack of advanced salon education available. Even if an independent stylist offers training is well intentioned, few recent graduates can afford to pay for more training right after graduating. Followers on social media does mean one is elite level trained so, it is important to research carefully before applying for your first salon job. If you are looking for an established salon with a reputation for developing specialized skill consider our salon associate program if you example the qualities below.

  • Has an excellent work ethic. 
  • Loves our profession. 
  • Licensed or a recent graduate. 
  • Wants to be a part of our positive team culture with good leadership.

For Experienced Stylists

We prefer that all stylists go through our associate program simply because of the high standard of work that is synonymous with our brand. Charging an average of $100 an hour and booking several weeks in advance is rare, but on occasion we hire a stylist that did not start as an associate here. An example would be if a stylist moved to our area from out of state.

Compromising how we gauge skill and professionalism would also compromise the consistent quality our guests expect. So we’d rather have new guests book in advance, versus putting someone inexperienced on the floor. The demand has always been a constant at S39, but our owner is a stylist who was mentored in an elite level salon so our definition of “master stylist or color specialist” is held to the same criteria.

We encourage researching the site and Beauty Buzz posts to get a feel of what Studio 39 represents. the salon is about. If you feel your experience or skill is a good match, we offer a 3-4 month accelerated training program where stylists can do their clientele while learning our color lines, and service appraoch.
