UNDERSTANDING STYLIST LEVELS.
The Stylist Level System at Artistry Hair Company offers our clients options when it comes to salon services as well as providing a career path for growth and achievement for our team members. Clients may choose the stylist/level that best compliments their requests and needs from skill set/experience, to budget.
In short, levels are based on REPUTATION, EDUCATION & DEMAND. As our stylists grow in each area, they earn the opportunity to be promoted to more advanced levels.
Level 1 Stylist
Level 1 Stylists have just graduated from beauty school and are newly licensed in the state of Virginia. They are gaining and developing the skills necessary to deliver Artistry quality services in select areas of their craft, and offer a limited menu of services to our clients at Level 1 pricing. Level 1 Stylists are still accepting model services for curriculum-specific modules until the completion of their program; after which they will have fully graduated to a Level 2 Stylist.
Level 2 Stylist
Level 2 Stylists are either new to Artistry with experience, or they have joined Artistry Hair Company early in their career and have chosen to grow their craft within our team. They are competent in foundational cutting, styling, and coloring services, and they often collaborate with our Senior/Master Stylists for more advanced services. Level 2 Stylists have a minimum of 1 year of experience, and are working on building their confidence as they sharpen their skills and evolve in their craft. Booking your service with a Level 2 Stylist is a great option for those who seek a more cost effective price point than booking with a Senior or Master Level Stylist.
Our Level 3 and Level 4 Stylists are industry leaders who not only bring their reputations, decades of experience and worldly education to the team, but they are also committed to paying their expertise forward. Our seasoned stylists help mentor and inspire our new talents to develop their skills through practice and experience.
Level 3 Stylist
Senior Stylists have accumulated a minimum of 3 years of experience, education, and skill from both behind the chair, as well as through top continuing education. They are well equipped to handle the many intricacies of customized cutting and coloring services. They are also skilled in advanced services, such as extensive color projects and color corrections. At this stage, Level 3 Stylists begin to take part in mentoring our Level 1 Stylists.
Level 4 Stylist
Level 4 Stylists are masters of their craft. They are established, respected, and carry a reputation for excellence that has earned them this title. With years, sometimes decades of experience, advanced education and the highest demand for their services, there isn’t much a Level 4 Stylist hasn’t handled in his or her craft. They are leaders in the organization, and experienced mentors who pay their knowledge forward to the future generation of up and coming talent!
