Pennsylvania

Do you love the cosmetology industry and want to make a difference with your management skills? Salon management may be a career for you to look into if you enjoy working with people, handling different types of tasks, and being a valuable part of a cosmetology team. Some people study salon management in Pennsylvania after earning a cosmetology license.

However, you don't need a cosmetology license to get into this degree program. If you’re ready to learn what it takes to manage a salon, simply use our site to find your options for training. We make it simple to request information and compare programs!

As you begin your salon management degree, you may learn about labor and cosmetology laws in Pennsylvania. This can help you ensure that your salon schedules and pays people appropriately, in addition to keeping everything up to the standards of Pennsylvania law.

Education Details

You can also plan on spending lots of time on business finance and financial management. Bookkeeping, business accounting, and payroll are common subjects in salon management programs. If you can master these skills, you can ensure that your salon stays up-to-date on taxes, pays staff accurately and on time, and covers other expenses on a timely basis. Whether you're supervising a staff of five or 50 cosmetology professionals, you need to have a strong set of management skills! Courses in salon management can give you the ability to communicate with staff, handle complaints, and ensure that everyone has a great work environment.

Becoming a salon manager may permit you to earn a very competitive salary, particularly if you have other experience in the cosmetology industry! Most salon managers and supervisors earn between $24,600 and $59,000 per year, as reported by O*Net. The average salary in this career is $36,200 per year, which is slightly higher than the national average (O*Net, 2013). Though the job outlook in this state is not as positive as it is in other parts of the country, salon managers can still anticipate a growing job market. O*Net anticipates about 200 new jobs per year, representing a 10-year growth rate of 5%. You do not need a license to work as a spa or salon manager in Pennsylvania. However, some salons do require managers to maintain current licensure in cosmetology. If this is the case, you have to maintain your license through the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology.

Working as a Salon Manager

Going into salon management requires a specific set of skills. While most people can learn how to balance the books or schedule appointments, not everyone has the personality needed to work with a variety of staff members and customers! ModernSalon.com offers a list of traits needed to succeed as a professional in a salon setting. By displaying these traits to your staff, you can encourage a rewarding work environment. Being reliable and organized is incredibly important; you should be able to figure out your salon's schedule for the day and quickly figure out where you're needed. Being organized can make other aspects of your job, like bookkeeping and marketing, much simpler. Your job can change from day to day, depending on what the salon owner asks of you and what your staff needs. If you have a current cosmetology license and you're short stylists, you may be asked to jump on the floor and work with clients. If it's payroll time, you may spend the entire day processing payroll and verifying its accuracy. As an inspection approaches, you might roll up your sleeves and get to cleaning and organizing. Being flexible and willing to do whatever is needed for your salon to succeed can help you thrive in this career.
