At most hair salons, stylists are on their own when it comes to time off and health benefits. The owners of Studio 921 Salon & Day Spa in Baltimore say that could be why turnover is so high in the industry.
So partners Colleen Smith and Judy Sulisufaj Kelly offer one paid week of annual leave to employees who have worked a year, and a 401(k) plan with a 3% match. The firm’s 50 employees have access to group health insurance, including vision and dental.
And when stylists asked if the salon, which was closed on Sundays, could open seven days a week so they could earn more, the owners agreed.
Employees can flex their work schedules. Plus the salon pays part of the cost of continuing education courses and offers in-house training several times a year.
