• Shampooing for stylist and technicians
• Sweeping hair
• General clean up to maintain the salons appearance
• Blow dries for both stylist and technicians when needed

Please be aware of clients in the waiting area by checking on appointments, offering coffee and magazines. This is a great time for you to familiarize yourself with the operations of the salon and salon staff.
