Careers at

Join Our Team

We’ve built a salon culture of collaboration, creativity, and high-end client care. And we want you to join us!

Unlike most salons, we don’t operate as independent stylists. We are a team.

We love our daily morning huddles, closed lunch hours, monthly meetings, community involvement, team travel, and of course, skill sharing!

It’s what makes working at Rustic Salon different from other salons.

So if you are looking to be part of a team that

  • Encourages you to share your thoughts, offer and ask for second opinions, and pitch in when you can
  • Pushes you to grow your expertise and sharpen your skills. Because, when you learn something new, it helps the whole salon, not just the person in your chair
  • Invites you to help build a comfortable space so clients feel welcome and want to keep coming back

Then we want to talk to you! We know the power of great people and ensure there is room for more in our company!

Send in your resume, and we will take it from there!

At Rustic Salon we are committed to delivering excellence to each guest that walks through the door.

We arrive early everyday to review our daily and monthly goals, talk about opportunities to improve our services that day and any promotions or product focuses we have going on.

Then it is time to get to work. We get our guests checked in, offer them a complimentary beverage and then have a thorough consultation before we start cutting or coloring.

We often have two stylists at a consultation to make sure we have a better understanding of a guest’s goals.

We provide high quality services to each and every client, and discuss product regimens throughout the service.

We find ways to imbue value to the business during breaks and then have an hour off for lunch.

We wrap up the day by making sure everything is ready to go in the salon for the following day. Wow but we have fun, feel accomplished, and fulfilled after a day’s work!
