Live Salon runs on a level system of stylists. It is not necessarily based off skill or time spent in industry but more so the stylists' demand of time. Guests may choose whatever stylist best fits there needs & budget. 

REMEMBER! We work as a team and you may book services with as many stylists as you would like. 

What does this mean for you?

With a tiered pricing structure, all clients can have services rendered at Live Salon no matter their financial status. As each one of us here specialize a little more in certain areas, one stylist may fit the needs of your color and another, your lashes.

 

How does this help the stylists at Live Salon?

We are in the business of empowerment. Our stylists have their own personal goals and salon standards needing to be met. They track these goals and we review the stylists every month. This allows our stylists to always strive for more and continue to grow for themselves, the salon, & their guests. As these goals are met, advancements, promotions, and price increases follow.
