Hairstylists are among the most hated and hated by employers, but a new survey by Salon.com and CareerBuilder.com shows that some are doing just fine.
According to the Salon survey, 76 percent of salons surveyed reported a positive experience with the profession, and 83 percent of the salon owners reported a high level of satisfaction with their work.
But the survey also revealed that many of the people who said they felt unhappy or negative about their jobs also had other grievances: They felt the salons had overcharged them, didn’t offer them enough hours, or offered lower pay.
Here are 10 reasons why salon owners should avoid being hounded out of their jobs.1.
They’re just trying to make a buck.
Some salons say they’ve been pressured to hire a certain type of worker or set up a certain budget.
In fact, Salon.co.uk reports that over 90 percent of salon owners are self-employed and that 75 percent of them have no income.
In other words, if you work in a saloon and don’t earn enough to cover your bills, you’re out.
Salon.com quotes an owner who says he’s owed $4,000 in rent, but that he was forced to cut his hours to make ends meet.
Salons are also known for charging excessive fees, which can cost up to $50 per hour or more.
In some cases, salons charge more for haircuts and hair care than their competitors, Salon says.
If you’re working as a salon, it’s likely that you will be subjected to harassment and intimidation from your bosses, who may try to bully you into giving them money to keep their jobs or pressuring you to change your hair style.
If your boss tells you to stop working for them, it can be very difficult to take it seriously.
The same applies if your boss tries to convince you to quit because you’re “doing the wrong job.”
Some salons even claim that they’ll file lawsuits against their bosses if you quit, but most don’t.2.
They hate the people that work in their industry.
Saloon.com says that only 25 percent of owners said they were happy with their jobs and only 8 percent were satisfied with their job.
So, if your work is stressful or challenging, it may be better to stay at home and/or skip work altogether.3.
They’ve been told to make more money.
A lot of salon employees make less than minimum wage, which makes it difficult for them to afford the salon services and products they need.
And, of course, saloons may charge you more if you ask for more hours.
Some salon owners make more than their colleagues, so you may have to pay more for their services, and if you do, they may even be withholding your pay.
If they insist on making more, ask them to pay back your money in full.4.
They are a “slippery slope.”
A lot salon owners get hired because of a lack of education, which is why they often have an extremely limited skill set.
If you have to learn to do a specific job and you don’t have any previous experience, you may end up getting treated poorly.5.
They don’t work in an “appropriate” environment.
The same salon owners who complain about the pressure to work in salons may also complain about working at other salons that are too loud and noisy.
They may feel like they’re working in a dangerous environment and have a bad work ethic.
In the same Salon.uk survey, 73 percent of owner-sources reported that they would be willing to give their hair to another salon if the other salon offered them a similar level of service and quality.
This includes salons with less stringent standards than yours, as well as those that charge you for “noise reduction.”
If you have a similar complaint about a salon you’ve worked at, it could help to ask to be transferred to another saloon, if possible.
If this isn’t possible, try to get your salary directly from the salon.
Salontalk.com also interviewed the owners of a few salons who said that they had been threatened by other salon owners.
One owner said he was asked to “work for the price” of a haircut and that he and other salon employees were being fired.
In another case, an owner claimed that another salon manager threatened him and other employees if they didn’t accept a higher-paying job.6.
They have “unreasonable expectations” that they will be paid.
In a Salon.net survey, nearly 70 percent of people said that salon owners had unreasonable expectations of them.
Some salon owners have been fired because they’re too expensive.
Some owners are also unhappy with their salon staff.
A salon owner who is currently working as an executive told Salon.biz that his
