Your Career at Shep Studio
If you feel art deep down in your gut, have a desire to make everyone around you feel gorgeous, and your guidance counselor said you take an unpredictable approach to problem-solving, Shep Studio may be the place for you. We are looking for stylists who can form genuine relationships and aren’t afraid to put in the work it takes to become great. It’s ok to toot your own horn when you’ve earned it.
Our hiring process includes a resume review, interview, audition, and discussion with our team to ensure we’re a good fit. Yes, it’s thorough – but we only want the best in our house. If you have a humbly bold vision for your future, drop off your resume. We’d love to get to know you, but you have to make the first move in this relationship.
We prefer that interested applicants come by the salon to drop off their resumes, take a tour and learn about our business. If you don’t live in the area, you can certainly email your resume. If you are in the area, the best time to come by is between 9am – 5pm Tuesday through Friday.
If you're interested in a career in cosmetology but want to forego a traditional cosmetology school, Shep Studio has options to help you earn your liscense while working in a salon environment. With our Apprentice Program, you can skip the traditional classes and learn everything from technique to customer service practices right on the salon floor all while building your client-base.
For further details, contact Shep.
Once you've gone through the steps to earn your license, it's time to apply to join our team as an assistant. Everyone who works at Shep Studio began as an assistant and grew their technique and style to earn a stylist position, with weekly color and cutting education. Most people spend about a year in the assistant program, but we won't hold you back - the more motivated your are, the faster you can get on the floor and start doing hair as a full-fledged stylist.
We also offer externships for students. If you're looking to supplement your coursework and earn credits working in the salon, this is the program for you. Ask us or your school for more details.
