I have continually demonstrated a sharp aptitude for hair cutting, coloring, and styling techniques, and my ability to skillfully assist stylists with a wide range of tasks has resulted in superior salon reputations and generous client bases. With my recent graduation from beauty school, I am excited to start my career in the hair and beauty industry and ensure optimal customer experiences as your next hair stylist assistant.
Highlights of my experience include the following:
Excelled as an assistant in an internship capacity with Brian Greene Salon & Spa for nine months, Anna Barch Salon for six months, and Prism Hair Art for six months, respectively; acquired comprehensive knowledge and techniques in cutting, coloring, blow-drying, styling, rolling, and relaxing through direct stylist support
Shampooed, conditioned, and rinsed clients’hair using salon-exclusive products
Fostered rewarding relationships with customers through a warm, personable demeanor and strong hair styling capabilities
Provided overarching administrative and logistical support within salons, performing responsibilities such as answering phones, booking appointments, restocking inventory, sterilizing tools, cleaning stations, processing payments, and cleaning the salon
Worked collaboratively with peers and stylists to generate a positive and service-oriented salon environment
Prepared to fully commit myself to the beauty services field, I am equipped to put my knowledge and experience to work for you; in fact, I am sure to enhance client satisfaction and exceed your expectations for this role. I look forward to discussing the position further. Thank you for your consideration.
