Today I was hired as a hair assistant in a very upscale salon and spa! I've been looking for an assistant position since i graduated cosmetology in september. They are very hard to get since most salons are slowing down. I had my actual interview on monday and he told me he thought we could definitely work something out but he wanted me to bring in a male and female haircut and style model. He really liked the haircutting shears i have tattooed on my foot. today i brought in my models and he said i did well on them and that i have a lot of potential. i will be assisting under the owner who is an absolutely amazing stylist (he charges $65 for for a haircut). He he going to be gone for 2 weeks so when he gets back on the 15th he'll call and tell me my schedule. I'm so excited about it!
