Every salon is filled with certain hairdressing archetypes the business just couldn’t function without. From the business savvy person , to the leader, to the artistic whiz, the trend setter and everyone’s right hand helper, the salon wouldn’t be what it is without all of these unique figures (we mean – you!) making up its bold tapestry.
So with that in mind, we’ve rounded up the people you’re bound to find behind the chair in salons nation-wide. Which hairdressing archetype are you?
