What this job is about

Ah, that smell of hairspray and Barbicide – it either triggers memories of a bad bowl cut of makes you very happy. And if it's the latter, owning your own salon might be a good fit. Usually a natural step after becoming a hairstylist or esthetician, salon owners manage the day-to-day operations by scheduling stylists and appointments, looking after the facilities and marketing services to the general public. You'll definitely need the ability to lead and coordinate, but a mind for financial resources and marketing can't hurt either. It's ideal for outgoing, entrepreneurial individuals who love the idea of owning a business and all the bobby pins they can handle.
