    I have been working at Lady Jane's Haircuts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A fun atmosphere of talented stylists who support one another in their craft of cutting and styling men’s hair. Ample growth opportunities and a supportive management staff that encourage you to be the stylist you aim to be, challenging you to grow in your skills and professionalism at either a store level or even further if you work hard for it. TVs with sports in the waiting area and at every stylist station for client entertainment. A wide variety of “manpering” services offered in addition to your haircut service if you so choose, such as Scalp and Shoulder Massages, facial waxing, Express Facial care, Color, and Beard services. This company is what I came back to this industry for, living my passion everyday now that I rep Lady Janes!

    Cons

    I’m reaching here by listing a con because I genuinely cannot think of something that warrants criticism or that I whole heartedly disagree with. If I had to say anything it would be that one day a week they could be closed to the public but I don’t even have a suggestion for which day. Traditional barber shops tend to be closed for business Sundays and/or Mondays and that fact alone drives business for a shop like a Lady Jane’s that is open 7 days weekly and always accepts walk-in clientele. This allows stylists to build and maintain their books and have ideal schedules for themselves and their clients.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest recognition toward management and hard working stylists. Accountability structure and support for management at store level. Exercise the right to weed out those who display consistent lack of integrity.

    Pros

    You get paid daily in cash

    Cons

    Your a contract 1099 employee and the managers constantly micro manage you. You have to pay all of your own taxes. You have to wear dresses certain days no matter what. Getting any time off can be nearly impossible. You arent allowed to leave the building during your 10 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as contractors. Treat your employees good and your clients will be happy.

    I worked at Lady Jane's Haircuts part-time

    Pros

    Coworkers were great girls. Leave with cash daily.

    Cons

    The commission rate was the lowest of anywhere I have worked. You are also treated like an employee as far as required hours and rules but paid like an independent contractor. The hours are long. They put your picture on the check in screen where the guys can choose their stylist which feels a bit a like meat on a menu.
