We are always looking for professional, dedicated designers to join our team.  If you are interested in a career at Trina's Tresses, please fill out our Employment Application

 

I am currently in a salon, will my salon know if I apply at Trina's Tresses?

Absolutely not!  We hold all applications in the strictest confidence!  We will not reveal your application to anyone, including our other staff, until and unless you are comfortable with us doing so.  We can also meet outside of the salon if you are more comfortable doing so, just let us know!

 

That's quite a long application!

That's not even a question.  But you're right, it is.  We are committed to finding the very best to join our team and to fostering careers, not just jobs.  For that reason, we really want to get to know you and what makes you tick to ensure that it's a great fit!  Plus, we want to be upfront about the requirements of the position, so you can be confident the fit will be great, too.

 

Do you have a paper application?

Yes!  If you do not prefer the online form version of our application, a paper version is available at the salon!  Just stop by and ask for an application.  Or you can download the Paper Employment Application and mail or drop it off at:

Trina's Tresses
372 Center Ave
Schuylkill Haven, PA 17972

 

What happens next?

After we receive your application, we will get back to you as quickly as we can.  Things are busy at the salon sometimes, so there might be a bit of a delay before we get back to you, but we will respond as soon as we can!  We'll want to set up a time when we can meet with you to get to know you a bit better.  If that works out, we may want you to bring a model for a technical interview.  We are committed to hiring the most talented, and nicest, designers we can.  So our interview process can be a little bit involved... but we think it's the best way to do it!

 

Are you hiring right now?

We are always on the look out for experienced stylists, especially if you already have a client base.  If you're just getting started, we are always looking for talented people with a passion for beauty.  We encourage you to send us your resume and portfolio.  If the time isn't quite right for us, hopefully it will be soon.  We are growing at an incredible rate, and we never know when we'll be ready to welcome someone new to our staff.  As soon as that time comes, we'll be in touch again!

 

Who should I talk to?

John is in charge of reviewing and responding to applications, setting up interviews, and just about everything else during the hiring process.  He's also the person most likely to check the service@trinastresses.com email, so that's the best way to get in touch with him.  It's best to email us to set up a good time for us to talk, rather than just dropping in.  We're so busy that we very rarely have time to really get to know you without setting the time aside in advance.  Thanks for your understanding!

 

Why work for us?

Education

Trina's Tresses is committed to constant, continuing education for all of our employees.  We regularly host in-salon education classes to learn the latest techniques or to better familiarize our employees with the products and services that we provide.  We also encourage employees to attend classes outside the salon, such as at the local beauty distributor, or to attend beauty industry shows for continuing education opportunities.  We have an online course management system that is also used for our in-house certification program, which allows us to share the content of classes we attend with employees who were not able to be present.  We also have a strong culture of mentorship and collaboration, that encourages all of our stylists to constantly learn from -- and teach -- one another.  John and Katrina are even both Farouk Chi Educators, and bring that extensive knowledge to our in salon training program!

 

Advertising


As a professional in our industry, you must take an initiative to grow your client base and make yourself successful.  Although it is very important for you to constantly advertise yourself, we believe in providing a level of advertising support that is unparalleled by other local salons.  On average, Trina's Tresses sees about 15 new clients (walk-ins) each week.  Here are some examples of our previous advertising programs that we have used to sustain that level of success:

  • Facebook Advertising (our primary mode of advertising)
  • Google Search Advertisements
  • Electronic Billboard Advertisements
  • Direct Mail Campaigns
  • Giant Shopping Cart Advertisements
  • Redner's Welcome Kiosk Advertisement
  • Client Referral Program
  • Newspaper Advertisements
  • Word of Mouth!

Word of mouth is one of our most effective advertising tools.  If you've made it this far, hopefully you have heard great things about us, both from our employees AND customers.  Our motto is "Be Nice to Everyone", and we believe that we are a fantastic place to work.  Keep an ear open and see what you hear about us -- we hope it will be all great things!

Salon

We believe that besides our fantastic designers, our next biggest asset is the salon itself.  The salon is cleaned thoroughly each week by a professional cleaning crew.  We use commercial-free, digital radio, so there is never static and the music is always crystal clear.  We carry a wide range of retail products (at last count, approximately 350 different products).  Our back bar is extremely well stocked, with over 30 products just at the shampoo bar.  If you have a favorite styling product, let us know and chances are we can carry it for retail and include it on the back bar.  We keep a full stock of Chi color on hand at any given time, and refill at least every other week, or as necessary.  You provide our customers with incredible service and the highest level of artistry, and we provide all the tools you need to do that.
