Job Description

Hair Lounge:

The Hair Lounge is not a regular hair salon, but instead one that specialises in non-surgical hair replacement for all genders, be that men, women, or others. We give clients suffering from hair loss due to age or medical conditions a second chance to have confidence with a hairstyle that they love; one that is cut, styled and maintained for them by our team of expert hair stylists.

We are a friendly and enthusiastic bunch, helping the Hair Lounge to feel like home. There is always a welcoming atmosphere in our salon from the moment you enter right up until you leave, which is accompanied by a luxury environment you would only expect to find in a Knightsbridge salon.

Job details:

We are looking for a someone to become a new full-time hair stylist for our salon, working directly with our clients through all stages of the hair system application process. The primary responsibilities of this position firstly involves having consultations with new clients, which is where the hair system itself is described as well as the process of applying it, as well as the do's/dont's whilst having one applied. The second and most important responsibility is of course applying the hair system itself as well as a styling it for the clients, and also reapplying the systems when the time comes.

We offer complete training to help fulfil these responsibilities. Our field of work is quite niche and isn't the same as regular hairdressing, the practice of non-surgical hair loss treatment isn't expected to be common knowledge and so we offer training to ensure everyone is as proficient as they can be when tackling this new challenge. This training is of course paid training, which is included in the salary that starts at £19,000 with additional commission pay.

Job requirements:

  • This role requires an experienced individual in the hairdressing environment, making the ideal candidate for this position being someone with at least 3 years salon experience, with good knowledge of colouring & barbering, as well as being interested in hair loss/hair replacement - and with a willingness to learn!
  • Another key part of this job is customer service, it's important for us to be chatty and friendly to make them feel as welcome as possible. Some of the clients we do hair systems for prefer their privacy and can be quite nervous when first entering the salon, making it important to have a personality which is adaptable to different situations, such as client queries about the systems.
  • Communication is also extremely important when relating to the team itself. We are a small team with good chemistry, so an ideal candidate must also enjoy working in an environment that involves working closely with others and of course is easy to get on with; a healthy working environment is what makes The Hair Lounge so special both for us and the clients.
