Our assistants go through an extensive one-on-one mentor-ships with our Stylists and Educators. During their training, our assistants will be taught all of the latest trends in cutting and texture. By the end of the training our assistants are confident in every aspect of styling from cutting, and coloring hair to product recommendation to client service.
Requirements: A strong work ethic, a flair for timeliness and an unparalleled ability to work well with others in a fast-paced, high-production work environment. Additionally, a talented and even-tempered multi-tasker can write their own ticket in our business.
Skills: An eager mind and strong listener can go very far in this education-based position. Our specialized techniques for cut and color incorporate the latest innovations from top salons such as Oribe. We work hard to stay on top of the best practices in our industry and expect you to as well. A good example is our highly-sought after hair painting technique which we have the patience and tools to teach an apt student. Your dedication to approaching this learning process is the crucial element deciding how high you will soar in your chair.
Flexibility: A key component to building your career at Umbrella is approaching your career with the idea this is not a nine-to-five job and you are not a solo performer. “Hair emergencies” are not a myth or a punchline.
