We align ourselves with some of the most forward thinking companies in the beauty business and emphasize continuing education from the best in the industry.
WHO WE ARE
Salon Blonde is a Summit Salon. Summit Salons are an elite group of career salon companies that work together and share best practices to ensure the profitability of our businesses and the happiness of our salon guests. We consult with Summit regularly and attend conferences to keep us updated on the most innovative business ideas and practices. As a salon we value furthering our education and staying up to date as we emphasize the same work ethic in our stylists and staff. We participate in a Summit program to grow our staff and stylists called the Associate Program.
Our Associate Program could be considered a Masters degree in the art of hair. All of our Associates are professional stylists who have graduated from cosmetology school and many have worked in other salons but have not achieved the level of expertise that they desire. They become Associates of Salon Blonde when they join our team and start their training. Our training is designed to take them from a new stylist to the level of a 5 year experienced stylist in 9 months. You might mistake them for “assistants”, they are actually dedicated stylists receiving a hands on experience to ensure they have all of the skills they need to provide you with exceptional service when you come into our salon. Often when we are working on particular skills we will offer completely free services performed by our associates and overseen by our educational staff so stay connected to our social media like facebook and instagram to find out about these service times. We always offer reduced rate services performed by our Associates, but you must request this specifically.
After a stylist completes the Associate program they become a level one stylist. This level system is a performance based level system through which our stylists grow themselves in their careers. As they grow in experience and expertise the demand for their time will grow. As the demand for their time increases their level in the salon and price increases. This allows opportunity for growth and advancement for our staff as well as providing an opportunity for you to receive amazing service at a price that is compatible with your needs. Whether you choose a level one stylist or a level four educational stylist you will always receive the professional service you expect from Salon Blonde.
