The Regis Story
What began as one hair salon over 90 years ago has grown into a multibillion-dollar corporation committed to making people look and feel beautiful.
In 1922, Paul and Florence Kunin opened Kunin Beauty Salon, which quickly expanded into a chain of value-priced salons located in department stores. Their son Myron bought the chain in 1958 and changed the company name to Regis. Myron saw the retail trend move toward the convenience of mall shopping and began to move the salons out of department stores to freestanding operations in enclosed shopping malls.
With the acquisition of Supercuts in 1996, Regis Corporation expanded into strip centers and street locations, and also became a major force in franchising.
During the next few years, there were numerous acquisitions as the company continued to expand in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
In 2007, in order to further facilitate the growth of the beauty school business, the company merged its accredited cosmetology schools with Empire Education Group, Inc., creating the largest beauty school operator in North America. Regis maintains a 55% ownership interest in the combined company.
Today, Regis Corporation (NYSE:RGS) is a leader in beauty salons and cosmetology education. The company owns, franchises or holds ownership interests in nearly 10,000 worldwide locations. Regis' corporate and franchised locations operate under concepts such as Supercuts, SmartStyle, MasterCuts, Regis Salons, Sassoon Salon, Cost Cutters and First Choice Haircutters. Regis maintains ownership interests in Empire Education Group in the U.S. and the MY Style concepts in Japan.
Every year, our 47,000 stylists help us raise money for breast cancer research during our Clip for the Cure campaign. Each salon donates the proceeds from 10% of the haircuts on a Saturday in October. In addition, the salons accept guest donations and sell pink products. That money benefits our foundation – The Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.
The Foundation funds groundbreaking research at nationally recognized centers. The focus of this research is on prevention, early diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure. In addition, the Foundation supports institutions that assist and treat patients with breast cancer. Since it was founded in 1994, the Foundation has raised over $11 million.

Flexible schedule, great advancement opportunities
Hairstylists don't qualify for insurance until a full 12 months
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Regis Corporation (Denver, CO).
This was a stress-driven group interview process that began with difficult travel arrangements, continue with trick questions at dinner, and ended with 8 hours of group interviews that simulated a sales process.
