To all the hair dressers out there, I have a question, I have been considering going to cosm. school, but I wonder #1 are you always an independent contractor? Do you always have to carry your own health ins?  How much money can I realistically make? 

 I am a BF, 5PT Harnassing, Co-sleeping, VAX, CIO, OCD, AR, WOTH, NON PA, Non-Spanking, CHD-Surviving, Single Mommy and PROUD OF IT!!!

there are 3 different kind of hairstylist

1. you rent a chair

2. you work in a salon and cough up 40%-70% of your sales

3. you own your own business

the reality is that you have to work where there is a market that will allow you to not only grow and gain new patrons but also excel and grow your skills.

I did hair for 6 years. When I moved to NY I struggled A LOT because I did not have a following and I had to build new clients. As far as I know, unless you work for a chain like super cuts or something similar you will not get benefits from a salon.

hope this helps

Sorry hun. Not a hair dresser so I haven't the foggiest but I wanted to give you a bump. Hate when you ask a question and no one freakin answers you!!

Good luck regardless!!!

I'd kinda like to know why the hell none of my hair dressers can seem to get closer to my scalp with the damn dye when I get my hilights done...sick of seeing roots a week after I get my shiznit done!!

if your hairdresser uses a brush instead of a bottle it is so you have to come back 2 weeks earlier to get your color done. lol
