Hi Camille,

COVID has definitely altered the job landscape. You can try searching for receptionist or shampoo assistant positions. I would also recommend physically driving around to see what salons are in your area. You can do a quick google search for “hair salons near ____ (insert your zip code) and call ahead.

As a minor, you may need a working permit. That is also a good first start too.

Good luck!

Apply for a work permit and pay the applicable fee. Train in a licensed shop under a licensed cosmetologist or cosmetology instructor (often referred to as sponsor during the apprenticeship period) Complete their apprenticeship within a specific period of time and/or work a minimum number of hours per week.
