Salon Recruiting Crash Course

Crash Course: a brief, intensive course of instruction

The #1 way a salon can increase revenue and grow is by adding service providers.
The #1 problem salons face today is hiring service providers. 

If salons can’t hire, then they are significantly impacting their ability to grow. Even salons that feel good about their current team size are putting their businesses at risk if they don’t have a strategy for attracting future recruits to keep a solid pipeline built. 

Recruiting = Marketing 101

What Makes Us Different

Recruiting is a study in marketing 101, but to be really good at salon recruiting, you to have to understand the needs and wants of today’s hairdressers. 

Talent Match is the only salon consulting company in the beauty industry with data directly from the workforce telling us what they want. 

Feeling Stuck When it Comes to Recruiting?

At Talent Match we know that some salons have some kind of plan for recruiting, but maybe it just needs refined a bit. You might have had some hiring success in the past and you feel like you need a refresh, some inspiration, or a new structure to follow. Or maybe you’re a salon that feels like you’re in a time crunch and you need to move quickly to stop the bleeding. 

So, what is the crash course?

The Salon Recruiting Crash Course is a 6-session salon recruiting education series that helps salon owners and salon recruiters create their stylist recruiting strategy and get to work quickly.

It’s a go-at-your-own-pace learning experience that gives you access to dive into the work and start implementing. 

What You Will Learn



Designing a Dream Culture

The first session is all about gaining clarity on what you wish your salon culture was and learning about what the data tells us stylists want. You can’t start building a recruiting strategy for your salon until you’re clear on these two things.



Crafting Your Story
Recruiting is a function of marketing and the Salon Recruiting Crash Course helps you get clear on the story you have to tell so you can start telling it. The right story is key to attracting the best talent for your salon brand.



Auditing Your Culture
The third session is a deep dive into finding the gaps between where you want/need to be and where you actually are. The tools and lessons in the program help you find clarity in your opportunity areas for attracting salon talent.



Sharing Your Story
The fourth session takes us into the #1 place talent says they find a job- Instagram. In this session, you’ll learn how to take the story you’ve crafted in prior sessions and get busy telling it where talent can find you. You’ll learn how to build great Instagram content for your brand and we’ll help you make a plan for executing it.



Telling your Story in Schools
The fifth sesson is focused on the second place talent says they find a salon job and that’s in beauty school. Even if you feel like “schools don’t work for you”, this session will give you clarity on why that’s your reality and help you turn it around. We’ll talk about the two most important stakeholders in the school and you’ll learn a 3 step process for driving leads from school.



Start Hiring
Once your outbound storytelling is solid and your stylist’s leads start coming in you have to be ready to capture them. This means that you need sound hiring practices, which start with your interview! In the final session we’ll look into your interview questions and make sure they are designed to help you properly filter out the wrong candidate and retain the right candidates.

No questions asked.

Hey. I'm Stef.

I help salon owners convert their team’s culture story into a recruiting magnet.

I’ve spent 20 years in the beauty industry and every year I find myself more obsessed with asking big questions and pushing the boundaries of possibilities to find solutions.

I do this work through an abundance of research, time investment, and question-asking. I’m a self-proclaimed data nerd who likes to use facts and feelings to find the best solutions.

In case you have some questions..
We have answers.

The time you spend in class. The depth of learning. The number of participants who gain access. The style of learning. The accountability.

Any salon can take the Crash Course but it’s best for the salon who is smaller and has a limited budget to invest at the moment.

It’s also great for a salon owner who can’t dedicate 2 hours a week to the full Bootcamp but needs to get started hiring.

The program runs for 6 weeks and is on demand. That means as soon as you enroll content will be released each week for 6 weeks.

The weekly modules take up to 1 hour per week to listen to and homework for each module takes between 30 minutes – 2 hours each week.

The Crash Course is a $499 investment for the on-demand virtual 6-week course + the bonuses and masterminds.
