The Apprentice Program:
Nothing brings me the feeling of success more than watching new artists succeed. I have a great interest in building people up and watching them conquer the ability to work for themselves in the industry I love so much. Plus… someone did it for me and the expectation is ultimately that you will do this for someone someday.
My training program puts you with me, everywhere I go, to observe everything from dialogue and client interaction to technical skills. The program is individually created to suit each and every apprentice I bring on board. We will set short and long term goals, learn how to attain those goals and set new ones. You become entwined in my family here at Bella and when you finish you are confident in your skills, business and the balance of your career.
What does it cost? NOTHING- consider my program a continuation of your education. What does it pay? Knowledge… you are here on a volunteer basis initially, once you advance to practical work behind a chair that money is your money and the salon takes nothing. Once your book is supporting the ability to pay booth rent, you will be responsible for chair fees. It can range from 1-5 years. What if you want to stay forever at Bella? The program is designed to create independence… I promise you will be ready to go when I set you free!
How do I choose my apprentices? I choose with many criteria in mind, the biggest is passion and drive… are you born to create? My goal for the program is to raise up each and every apprentice to be an independent hairdresser or salon owner.
How do you become an apprentice here? Give me a shout and we will talk about it!
