The Total Stylist Mission
Our mission is to teach and guide stylists through the step-by-step process to start & run a business and give them the tools and systems to excel in their career
The Values of a Total Stylist
You are the customer's “hair doctor”, their “therapist”. Listen to them, take notes and recommend solutions to their specific problems.
As a hairstylist, you are a self-employed business owner. Your business and skills are a reflection of you. Take your craft seriously
The Total Stylist provides comprehensive education and training to help hair professionals learn how to achieve more in their career regardless of their experience and situation.
The Golden Rule
Treat others the way you would want to be treated. This includes your clients and your coworkers.
You have the opportunity to make someone feel special - spend 90% of the time talking about the client while only 10% on yourself.
Dress for Success
You are in the fashion and beauty industry and clients look to you for advice and inspiration, make sure you look the part.
Stick To The Process
Don’t cut corners or cheat. Follow your processes and run the system. Delivering a consistently high-quality service is easy when you follow your processes.
