Many highly motivated people dream of careers as hair stylists, but some hold back because of an industry-wide shortage of quality education.
Some are afraid that they won't be able to support themselves as a stylist, and these fears may be justified. Statistics show that 80 percent of hair stylists quit after only two or three years in the business.
Additionally, about 52 salons close every day, and the average length of a stylist’s career is a measly three to five years.
Due to decreasing pay and inadequate training, it's becoming increasingly difficult for stylists to support themselves. This can be disheartening for current hairdressers and those interested in a career as a hair stylist alike.
How Can You Become A Successful Stylist?
These statistics are alarming, and they reveal just how challenging the salon industry has become.
However, with the right education and guidance, it is possible to have a long, well-paying career as a hairdresser. That’s where the Associate Program comes in.
The Associate Program is a step-by-step system for stylists at any level that helps you become a top-notch hair dresser and a sharp businessperson. It prepares you for a sustainable career by giving you the knowledge and tools necessary to keep moving forward when others are giving up.
