Upscale Hair Styling Without Breaking the Bank
Salonapprentice.com announces Spring Break launch in Los Angeles
Spring Break students on a budget look no further than SalonApprentice.com for hair needs. In the midst of this poor economy, this salon site continues to inform clients of upscale salon services at little to no cost. With the abundance of conservative consumer spending, it is no wonder SalonApprentice.com has seen growth. The site announces its launch in Los Angeles during Spring Break, “College students are a main target audience for us”, says founder.
Founded in 2006, SalonApprentice.com pairs stylists in advanced training programs at upscale salons with real clients. Every week, site visitors will find hundreds of free and discounted services available at salon hot spots in major metropolitan areas.
Hair service listings are free of charge for salons and apprentices who seek hair models and clients. Posts include a detailed description of the salon service provided, the name and location of the salon where the apprentice studies, apprentice availability and other logistics.
Jeffery Ashlock, formerly of Art + Science salon in Chicago said, “I love this website! It is a great tool for stylists as well as clients.” He added, “Overall A+ on ease of use and targeting a need for such a site.”
SalonApprentice.com maintains excellence in the quality of services through representation of top salons like Art + Science, Mario Tricoci, Aveda Institute, Guiseppe Franco and Arrojo. SalonApprentice.com not only commits to providing economical services to the style conscious. According to the Founder, it also strives to foster growth and achievement in the salon industry.
“Our mission is to provide an accessible service to local communities that help drive the creative education for the advancement of the beauty industry and support the salons that uphold the highest integrity and standards.”
Beauty industry veteran and icon Vivienne Mackinder is an advocate for SalonApprentice.com. She stated that the site is a nice link between her post-graduate program at HairDesignerTV.com. Additionally, Mackinder lent her thoughts on the value of SalonApprentice.com to the trade.
“The classic apprenticeship system is the back bone of British hairdressing,” said Mackinder who originally hails from London. “Without models it is hard to develop the skills required to be competitive in today’s market.”
Mackinder also praised SalonApprentice.com for its ease of use and efficiency in finding models. “Time is a precious commodity, and now you can spend your time in design rather than hunting for models.”
An apprentice who worked as a hair color assistant had a similar opinion when she was in need for hair models. “SalonApprentice.com is a great tool for me as a color assistant, because it really alleviated a lot of the stress of finding models!”
SalonApprentice.com shows longevity in creating long-term relationships between stylist and client. This proves evident as a client had this to say: “I found my current stylist on this site when she was an apprentice in training and I have stayed with her ever since!”
SalonApprentice.com was founded in 2006. The site lists discounted salon services by apprentices of top salons. Approximately 300 new services are listed daily. Posts are free of charge and can be utilized by apprentices or volunteer models. Participating include: Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Sydney.
