Our Level System/Commission Structure

What is the Levels System?

  • Our level system for our stylists range from level 1 through level 4 based on experience and skill level. A stylist’s initial level is determined during your interview process.  You can always grow from there through your career map.  
  • Your stylist level is what effects the cost of your services and your time standards.  Your level does not effect your commission amount because we run a “goal based” commission structure. 

What is a Goal Based Commission Structure?

  • Our Goal Based Structure is a commission system that is based on the amount of money in services that you bring in each pay period.  The percentage is based off of the amount of money brought in for services over a two week period.
  • There are no limits to how much money you can earn, and anyone of any stylist level can set their goals to earn what they want to make. Your career map will help you get there.
  • We offer an hourly minimum of $15/hr (plus your tips) if you do not meet the commission goals for that pay period.
