The other aspect of Hair Art and Science Academy is our community outreach. As we continue to grow our pool of assistants/stylists/students, we will begin to introduce them to other salons in the surrounding area. This will provide them with opportunities to work in other salons and experience other business models. These placements can be temporary (from one day to several weeks) or permanent if a match has been made.
We are also available to provide training for assistants who work for other salons where there may be little to no infrastructure for advanced training. This gives the owner/manager some freedom to work with the assistant while they pursue their education with us.
QUESTION: How much time is required?
LOOTS: Our Program is between 12 - 24 months depending on the Students performance and progress. We also have a Fast Track Program which a student can only become eligible after 3 months of employment. It is at the discretion of the management and education team. We have had some students complete our Program in as little as 8 months.
We let our students know that this is there program to create. We are only looking for their greatness. It is not our intention to hold anyone back, nor do we want to accelerate anyone’s progress when they are not quite ready. The flexibility of the program allows for all of our students to excel if they so choose.
QUESTION: Do you call participants students or assistants?
LOOTS: When students are at Hair Art and Science during class hours, they are referred to as students. When they work on clients during the week they are referred to as stylists. When they assist at our Studio DNA Salons in Los Angeles they are referred to as assistants.
