    Advice to Management

    Increase budgets per store, especially in areas doing well. It’s so hard to function without the proper tools. Visit stores regularly and get to know the employees who have stuck with the company for many years!

    I worked at Beauty Brands part-time

    Pros

    Dedicated lower and middle staff

    Cons

    A complete disconnect from their market and the future of beauty; pay so low that they can’t backfill empty positions; disrespect from upper levels for people doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    You don’t want to be Great Clips but you are. Remodeling your stores isn’t going to change that. Look to the future and realize in-store experiences isn’t where the market is going. And don’t keep management that can’t keep their employees happy.

    I worked at Beauty Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of free product/ gratis.

    Cons

    Lack of support from district manager or any corporate higher up, do not pay cashiers anything but minimum wage, asked us at conference to post good reviews because rating on here were low. Horrible dress code. Hired new CEO who came from Regis...crazy Regis is going down. Worst part is salon pros with nasty attitudes. I had a DM tell me that salon has nothing but mean girl..but they make money. Like its ok to treat people bad.

    Advice to Management

    Better training! DM should know how to use spa biz so they can train on it. All black dress code definitely does not screams hair authority beauty experts. Or anything! Pay their retail employee more than 7.50 an hour..McDonalds pays more than you. Lastly all the focus on salon employee is a joke when let them be rude and treat management like dirt.

    Pros

    I've been with Beauty Brands for a year now and I still love it. It's hard to find salons that offer benefits and pay well. At Beauty Brands you work as hard as you want to and your paychecks will reflect that. You can make your own schedule and work when and how you want. BB wants their employees to stand out and really focus on what makes their craft unique. Management is great and truly wants to help their employees reach their highest potential. I really appreciate the touch bases we have. I'm able to reflect on my work and set goals for the future. Beauty Brands is all about helping further their employees careers. They even offer continued education opportunities. Great company overall!

    Cons

    My clients were used to package deals on services and they don't offer anything like that here.
