I want my stylists to learn and grow in their careers, to have goals that they achieve through education and mentorship. Stylists will invest tens-of-thousands of dollars and years of ongoing training into their careers. And, like any licensed trade, they deserve to be respected for their talent and paid for their time and expertise.
