Salon Manager Careers
Salon Manager – take the lead in your beauty career
Everyone says you’re a born leader. You’re organized yet creative. Thoughtful yet direct. Your attention to detail and take-charge attitude keeps you and others on task. You could be on track to a fulfilling career as a salon manager.
Salon or spa managers are often licensed cosmetologists who are hired through networking or by working their way up the ranks at a salon. They wear many hats and are the right hand to salon owners. Salon managers are trusted to hire/train employees, maintain product inventory, handle administrative tasks, provide excellent guest service, and much more.
To get a salon manager job, you need to have top-notch cosmetology and business talents as well as stellar communication skills. You’ll be required to interact with clients, address any problems that arise and tactfully deal with employee issues. Spa and salon managers also need to ensure that the salon is meeting all required state laws and that employees’ cosmetology licenses are current.
A comprehensive cosmetology education can take you far. See how these Regency Beauty Institute graduates have achieved their dreams of a career in beauty.

From scheduling employees to developing ongoing staff training opportunities to managing schedules and appointments, salon and spa managers have many responsibilities. A good eye for aesthetics is also required, as salon managers are often in charge of making sure the salon atmosphere is clean, inviting and relaxing. You’ll also maintain product inventory and ensure that all the salon equipment — hair dryers, cutting shears and other essential tools — are in top shape.
While overseeing the business end of things, spa or salon managers are often expected to perform cosmetology services. By being a licensed cosmetologist as well as a salon or spa manager, you can pitch in when business is booming or staff is short. And that’s a big advantage that will help you build a salon manager career.
