Beauty School Dropout: How To Get The Best From Your Beauty Recruitment*

When you decide that it is time to expand your new beauty business, you will need to start thinking about recruiting some new hires. When it comes to looking for new recruits, it is absolutely crucial that you pick the best of all the applicants. After all, these new hires will become the face of your business since they will be face-to-face with all of your customers. Not only that, though, but they have to be experts at what they are hired to do - your customers won’t be happy at all if someone messes up their eyebrow wax or manicure! So, there is no room for any beauty school dropouts on your team!

Ready to get out there and find the best recruits for your beauty business? Here is everything you need to know.

Figure Out The Expertise You Need

How do you want to expand your business? In order to answer this, you will need to think about the new services that you want to offer all of your customers. For instance, maybe you want to start to offer some hair services along with your usual beauty treatments. Or perhaps you just want to add another beauty service to your company’s bow. In order to add some new expertise, though, you will need to find the right beauty therapist to bring their knowledge and experience to the team. Now that you know the expertise you need, it will be easier to narrow down all of your applicants to a shortlist.

Be Prepared To Offer Some Training

You will need to offer some onboarding training to all your new hires. As long as you hire some experienced professionals, then this shouldn’t need to include any beauty training. They’ll already know what to do when it comes to that! But you will need to show them the ropes of your salon and business. Any high-tech equipment that isn’t related to their job but you have in the salon, such as an IP camera or high-tech burglar alarm. You will also need to include some training that covers your company culture and expected customer service standard.

Always Check References

When your applicants send in their resumes, they should include the contact details of a couple of referees at the bottom. In some cases, they may simply put that references are available upon request. It’s always important that you get in touch with the referees for references. They will be able to give you a good idea of what the applicant is like in the workplace and how much of a team player they are. Most recruitment guides will tell you to get in touch for references after you have interviewed your candidates, but you can get references whenever you want in the recruitment process-  it’s completely up to you; there is no right or wrong way to do it!

Recruiting for a beauty business can be a big challenge, but the tips above should help you out and make it a whole lot easier!
