The success of a salon is often determined by how the salon is managed, making the role of salon manager critical. A salon manager oversees services and clients, creates schedules in advance for staff, holds regular staff meetings to cover any issues, problems, and successes, offers incentives to keep staff motivated, and trains employees on procedures and business skills. A successful salon manager is highly organized. Part of beauty salon management is dealing with paperwork and product inventory, so organizational skills are essential. Many full-time beauty industry workers put in a 40-hour week, and work schedules may include evenings and weekends, when beauty salons are busiest.

What to Know About Salon Management

Though there is no formal beauty salon management training, many times someone with a cosmetology degree starts by working as a hair stylist, manicurist, or aesthetician and grows into the role of salon manager. It really comes down to the salon owner's requirements--some may require a cosmetology license, while others may consider salon work experience as an alternative to a degree. The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not present details for the specific occupation of salon manager, but the top 90 percent of cosmetologists earn $42,460. Additionally, the job outlook for the beauty industry is positive, with occupations for personal appearance workers expected to grow by 20 percent from 2008 to 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations.
