My Salon interview

Posted May 7th, 2014 at 6:57 PM by (Duzzy<3)

So for those of you who didn't know (anyone not on staff), I had an interview with the owner of a local salon today!
My exp:
So I met (or rather saw) the owner before while at school. On a Monday (usually the off day for students) she and another salon owner were holding a Eufora (amazing haircare brand) professionals class meant only for salon owners. however, the supplier for the school (when the school was as well a high-end Eufora carrier) contacted me and asked if I would like to sit in the class since she was aware as to how much I love the brand.

So that's where I first saw the owner. Today when I walked into her salon I saw a good friend of mine (who didn't tell me she was working there because she wanted to surprise me), and we chatted for a moment while the owner was finishing up with her client. Afterwards the owner and I went off to our own space and chatted for a bit. She asked my long-term goals, short-term goals, what I wanted from working at her salon, and since she knew what school I went to (I emailed her before I went into the salon), she asked what I liked about Eufora (since they're Eufora exclusive).

I feel like it went well, but I have an interview on Monday with a business partner of hers (something that was decided before meeting the owner), and hopefully all goes well there, too.

But, my friend when she got home called me and told me, that on this previous Monday, when the owner read the email and realized my friend and I went to school together, how I was as a person, stylist, what my goals were etc, etc. My friend mentioned to her that I'm more of the guy who would work under someone for a very short while, and then more than likely want to manage or own my very own salon someday. With just that one comment, the owner already thought of the possibility of being a manager for her salon. She currently owns a small 3-chair studio in a larger building, and they plan to move before the year is over (they already have a place in the works), and she needs someone to take role as manager. apparently the other two stylists working for her have stated they just want to work for, not run the salon. So before even meeting this woman, I have already gotten the possibility of running the salon with her, and then when I told her I would like to some year in the future own my own salon in Japan, she became VERY interested in the best possible way.

The only issue is that a spot wouldn't be open until the middle of or towards the end of the summer. It's unfortunate, but it is definitely something I'd consider working somewhere else for for a little while until then.

so all in all, I feel like it went well. She had a few more people that she was interviewing for a future position as her apprentice (which would provide for free, extremely advanced education), so nothing is guaranteed. But hopefully I do nice and all enough for them to REALLY want me.
