For the past ten years American Idol has found some of the best new male and female talent to entertain us. There is a process; compete locally and then nationally. If you get noticed and have potential you can climb the ladder to become the next American Idol.
Is there a similarity to the American Idol competition and what top salons are looking for in hiring their stylists, a big YES!
Usually it goes something like this: Round One; The Resume. Round Two; The Face to Face Interview. So far so good! On to Round Three; Bringing in a model or two. This is where many of the stylists drop out on their own. For some reason they don't expect this challenge. Final Round: Hopefully this is where they will here Ryan Seacrest in their minds saying: dim the lights, drum role please: The next Salon Idol is...
So my recommendation to you you is find that salon that has a hiring process, a training program and/or assistants. There are to many salons out there that will hire anyone as long as they have a license. You deserve better!
