My name is Octavia Gilmore , and I am currently looking to hire an apprentice / assistant . I am currently running my own business out of a loft space in Clarendon Va ( Arlington. ) This year in April marked 3 years for me !! Since the reopening of salons, i have become a little more in demand , and could use some assistance in managing the load. What I'm looking for in a candidate is someone who loves to learn , and doesn't just sit to the side waiting for every direction . I'm looking for someone who is currently in beauty school , or close to graduating , and would like some experience in a salon setting . I am also looking for someone who takes initiative as far as cleaning , and doing towels ( my space isn't very big , so there isn't a lot of cleaning to be done. ). I need someone who is going to take direction well , and has a great attitude . Most importantly I need someone who is going to be reliable , and someone who understands how to treat clients on a professional level , as my clients are EXTREMELY important to me . They respect me a great deal ,and I respect them as well , so the care of my clients is my number one concern .
For this position I will be looking for someone who can
Shampoo / Blow Dry Clients based on my training
Check the progression of color / Lightning ( set timers as well.)
Help pre book appointments from time to time
Help Log formulas from time to time
Removal of extensions ( sew ins , crochet braids, micro links .)
Record , and take hair photos for my social media
At this time I am not able to offer a pay rate , so I really am looking for someone who is looking for the experience however there will be perks such as :
Free hair services
invite guest in for hair services with approval
Free lunch the days you work
Any virtual training I take you will be able to take free of charge . In person training will be depending on the cost
I am human not heartless lol , so I will never let you go home empty handed , I will always make sure you go home with some sort of compensation aside from any training days we may have
