Hello Deanna,

I worked part time as a receptionist at an upscale salon all through college. The hours were nice (not super late on evenings or weekends) and still gave me time for studying and socializing with friends. However, it also taught me an immense amount about professionalism and working in a salon industry. I provided customer service (answering phones, booking appointments, calling to give people reminders), but I also learned how to balance a register, make bank runs, close out at the end of the day, take stock of inventory, and many other tasks, which have been beneficial to me in my career. I would highly recommend working in the salon industry to get a better feel of what is involved as well as to gain mentors of other people who work professionally in the industry.

Best of luck,
Emmy

George’s Answer

Hi Deanna,
I can relate to this question somewhat. At a young age, my brother and I convinced our parents to buy us clippers to cut hair because we always wanted to have a fresh haircut. After years we became really good at cutting our hair and when I went off to college I joined a fraternity and advertised my haircuts. This resulted in me cutting all of my fraternity and other fraternities. I was practically working a full-time job while completing my studies. My advice would be to tell all of your friends, you will be surprised by the number of friends that will allow you to do this, and the practice you will get doing this. I would also reach out to local salons and ask to work as an intern so that you can work in a salon and gain more experience and exposure. Hope this helps!
Hi George, your advice is inspiring. I remember when I was in college (BACK IN THE DAY) I would "straightening comb press" my roommate's hair. Once other classmates found out I could press/straighten hair fairly well, they would asked me to do theirs. I didn't charge a fee because I already had a full-time job. Great story, thanks for sharing! Sheila Jordan
