Whether you are established or new salon, finding new talent can feel overwhelming. You start by posting general inquiries for talent on your social media business page. It’s successfully shared by your loyal followers and friends, but do you really know the talent responding to your post? Take the guesswork out of the talent acquisition process. HairDojo can help guide and build a solid foundation for your new talent, making the process a fun and informative experience. We can get you started in three easy steps.
The first step to utilizing HairDojo: creating an active profile. If you do not have a profile, it’s easy to create and free of charge. It’s as simple as creating a username and providing your email address. By creating a profile, you open up your creative world to excellent education in your area, online streaming channels featuring amazing local artists and a community of established stylists and new talent.
The second step to utilizing HairDojo: the ease in seeking new talent. Post a job listing on our website. HairDojo will help find talent in our local community. Students or new talent can request a shadow day in your salon to experience the vibe of your salon. As a salon owner, you can ask candid questions while working with a student or assistant. You let the new stylist learn how your team operates, the services you provide and the type of clientele you attract at the salon. This is your opportunity to see if the student or new stylist is a great fit and how you can help them grow.
The third step to utilizing HairDojo: refining the skills of your assistant and/or new stylists. As any salon owner or experienced stylist knows, skills are built over time. Building a solid skill set is key to the long-term success of your assistant or new stylist. Their success directly affects the outcome of your salon’s profitability and client retention. These skills also build confidence and continued passion in the stylist’s craft. The HairDojo community offers advanced education for all skill levels. We partner with local distributors, as well as locally and nationally renowned artists to provide hands-on, affordable classes. And while we wait for the next class, HairDojo streams videos directly from the website. Have the assistant or new stylist catch a video to perfect the new balayage or cutting technique. They can report back to you about what they’ve learned and how they plan to implement this new skill.
