Salon Management

Salons and spas rely on the work of their dedicated employees, whether they serve five customers a day or 500 customers per day.

Management is part of any great salon team, often managing staff, maintaining high standards with employees, and making sure that customers leave happy.

Job Outlook Increase
Between 2012 - 2022

Given how strong Nevada’s cosmetology industry is, it shouldn’t be surprising that the state’s need for good management personnel is growing.

Working as a Salon Manager

Your experience as a manager depends on whether or not you’ve previously worked in the cosmetology industry. If you’re transitioning from one beauty career to salon management, you may have a much easier time learning about how a salon is run and what your role is in management. If you’re new to the cosmetology industry, you should plan on spending some time getting familiar with your salon’s expectations, target market, and goals. Being a great multitasker and knowing how to prioritize can serve you well when you start your management career. With these skills, you can keep customers coming back to your salon, let your salon owner know that you’re trustworthy, and take care of any issues that may arise throughout the day. Education can be extremely helpful in reaching these goals, but experience may help you become more confident in your decisions.
