WARNING: Urbaca's Hair Apprenticeship is REALLY HARD September 10 2014, 0 Comments

Hairdressers are a wonderfully creative bunch but it takes a specific skill set to become one of the 5% truly successful cosmetologists.  Our benchmark of the top 5% would be a 6-figure stylist, as in you TAKE HOME 6 figures, not just do that dollar amount in services per year!  

It takes talent, certainly, to achieve that kind of success.  But as my old theater mentor Jon Jory used to say, "Talent and fifty cents will get you a cup of coffee."  That was how long ago I heard this, a cup of coffee was only 2 quarters.  Egad.

We've heard the word grit recently and there is a spirit of resiliency necessary to do this work.  Day in and day out, guests will bring you their problems and expect you to perform miracles.  See:  Talent.  Sometimes you will fail, and you will fail spectacularly--to learn from the experience and move forward takes grit. Not everyone has that.

I can tell you a group though, that inevitably has grit.  Anyone who has graduated Urbaca's New Talent Hair Apprentice program.  At Urbaca currently that is John, Jasmin, Chelsie, Laci, Gretchen, and Caitlyn.  Each of these stylists started at the bottom with talent and grit and worked their way up to become the successful stylists they are today.

Our apprentice program is hard, but human.  We expect you to show up not on time, but early.  To have common sense and learn efficiently.  To anticipate needs and multitask accordingly.  To participate as part of the solution.  

All you need to do then is add, time, talent and training and you'd be well on your way to your 6-figure income.

We are currently hiring for our next New Talent Apprentice Superstar.  We should do a reality show for this, what do you think?
