You pay will be determine on how many customers you have and how good you are as a hairdresser. Some beauticians make over $100,000. A year. Take care.
I worked as a hairdresser for 15 years then started barbering.
If I had it to do over, I'd have entered the field strictly as a barber doing nothing but haircuts.
It isn't as hard on your body being a barber as it is being a hairstylist doing chemical services, blow drys and styles. Also, you can cut a mans' hair in 7 to 10 minutes. Once you have built up your clientele, you can do around 6 to 8 haircuts in an hour. If you only charged $10 per haircut, that's $60 to $80 dollars an hour, plus 6 to 8 tips. Not sure where you live, but the standard rate for a haircut in my area now is $15.00.
If you do a perm, it takes around two hours to do that one head of hair. That gives you one tip plus you have to take into consideration the cost of supplies to do the perm. Such as perm solution, shampoo, blow dry and styling products. That's a lot of time and money. The haircut didn't cost you anything but a paper neck strip. Leaning over a shampoo sink is hard on the back and all the rolling, blow drying, etc, is rough on the hands and neck. Most stylists develop Osteo-arthritis after a few years in the biz as well as back problems.
Once you have built up your clients, you can rent a chair for a daily fee. In many cases, a barber makes a higher percentage than stylists if they work on a percentage basis.
Bottom line, Time Is Money.
10000 dollars every 3 months
Depends on the area you live in, the shop you hire in at and what kind of percentage rate you hire in at.
I would go for a straight percentage rate instead of an hourly wage and a percentage rate once you reach a certain dollar amount. Those type of salons will sometimes give you days off once you reach the amount of sales instead of letting you earn that percentage rate.
Have been in the business for many years. It is a fact that you will make more money by hiring in at a percentage rate. But, if you have acquired a decent amount of clients, (daily) chair rental in a shop is the way to go.
Also, barbers usually make more money than stylist because you can do up to 12 haircuts and receive 12 tips by the time you do one perm or hair color. Most women want their hair blow dried and styled after having a color, perm, hair cut, relaxer, etc. This takes time and in the hair business, time is money. You also spend less money if you strictly do hair cuts, because the good products to do chemical services are not cheap and you do not want to use cheap products on a clients hair if you want them to keep coming back to you.
I myself am a hair dresser and I own my own place in my basement I make about 3000 to 6000 a month
I am in school to do hair and have a lot of friends who are in the field I would say if your good at what you do and work at a good salon your weekly income should be around $1,500.
