At Akada, we see hair as an art form. Our clients are our inspiration and communication is our most valuable tool. With diverse educational backgrounds, we have substance as well as style.
What it takes
First and foremost, we look for technical ability and an open attitude towards learning in each of our stylists. You must be passionate about hair and grounded in your approach. We look for talented stylists who are responsive and dedicated to their clients, prioritizing the client needs over their own.
Each of our stylists must be committed to working as a team. When we’re on the floor, we’re serious about our business & expect each of our team members to be confident, yet approachable at all times.
What We Provide
When you join our team, you get more than just a chair. We offer a full training program and focus on our stylists education while highly refining their communication skills. Our employee retention rate along with our stylists income potential is twice the industry standard. We aim to help each of our team members build a financially stable life and the knowledge to build a rewarding career.
Our employee benefits include health insurance, a simple IRA retirement plan, flexible hours, paid vacation, paired with a workplace environment that is clean, neat and efficient.
Training and Education
Our stylists are talented from the start, but we help them evolve into well-rounded professionals. We expect our team to be continually learning and sharing their strengths with each other. If you’re a renowned colorist or ah-may-zing with curly hair, we just might ask you to teach a class.
Along the way, you will learn skills such as communication techniques to enhance your referrals, business practices that maximize your income, and gain secondhand expertise from other stylists when they travel for professional training.
Our stylists are required to travel at least once a year for hands on learning to expand their minds, hone their fashion sense, and refine their skill with hair. Educational travel is funded by the salon as a part of the training program which allows 10% of a stylist’s hair care product sales to go into a personal education fund.
