This is subjective based on your preference or the shop owner you would be under. If you are working for yourself the answer would depend on the hours you’d want to set for yourself each week and what type of hair you would be doing (braids, natural, processed, extensions, etc). Would you have multiple wash and dry stations to accommodate multiple people at a time and would you have help with shampoo and dry or other prep before completing a client. If you work for someone they may have stipulations for how your schedule will be including hours of the shop and what booths you can utilize.

Fred’s Answer

I am not a beautician or hair stylist at all, so this is pure conjecture.

But, from what I've seen, when you schedule an appointment, you would ask what service the client needs. Someone like me, who just needs a quick buzz and trim, can be done in 20 minutes. However, if you are going to do a full set of braids, you'd book <some number of hours>, depending on the size of braids and how much hair someone has.

When my daughter wants to dye her hair, they may book 2-3 hours. But, since she would spend some time sitting in a chair while the dye processes, the stylist may be able to book a quick haircut (like mine) somewhere in there, thus overlapping appointments.

I don't think a good stylist would ever rush. I wouldn't want them to rush my hair, and so wouldn't want them to rush on someone else. I'd be happy to reschedule if they realized they couldn't get to me today, as long as they contacted me before I got there.
