How to make a beautician job post; how to make one, who you should be looking for and why
Finding the right candidate to start a career in your salon is vital to the success of your beauty salon.
Hiring the right people for your beauty salon will contribute to the overall growth of your business.
It costs money and time when you have to start someone new, so team members who are an investment will definitely pay off in the future.
The ideal candidate
The ideal candidate you want for the position will be an individual with the following attributes, ideally a person who:
- is looking for a career, not just a job
- is enthusiastic about advancing their skills
- cares about quality and delivering an outstanding service
- is punctual and considerate of others’ schedules
- can handle constructive criticism professionally
- is a team player and is willing to help out when required
- takes care of their appearance
- Friendly, polite and welcoming (this is a salon after all)
- An eye for detail
Trials and probabation
Having a salon for 9 years, I can definitely recommend having a trial day or two to establish what kind of person someone is before hiring them.
Personally, I would be looking for someone who displayed the attributes listed above as well as someone who was punctual and presentable.

Application red flags
This one is more of an orange flag as some applicants may not have access to spell-checking software. A couple of spelling mistakes can be overlooked, but if there are a number of errors on a CV, this indicates that the candidate might not be very conscientious as they did not care enough to check over their CV.
