what we stand for

what we stand for

World-wide corporations have swallowed up distribution and hair product manufacturers. They have replaced local sales relationships with spreadsheets, live education with online videos and dehumanized small business. Prices continue to escalate and the financial impact is devastating to local salons.

Hourly corporate franchises are everywhere but do not provide a living wage for their licensed employees forcing cosmetologists to default on student loans and find other employment to make ends meet. 

Salons with antiquated ideas, poor business practices and no financial integrity are poaching stylists from other salons, hiding behind the chair without a leadership/legacy plan and creating a generation of desperate stylists looking for a community they can trust.

Real estate developers are capitalizing on frustrated stylists and overdeveloping single use suite spaces that are under-used and overpriced. Stylists are struggling alone to learn all the rules of owning a business, understanding taxes, laws, budgets, and inventory plus maintain enough hours behind the chair. Their guest communication, marketing and new business potential suffers while they try to maintain a work-life balance.  The suite model has elevated the real estate franchise empires and has driven the professionals further away from the community they crave.  

We knew we had to do something after watching our beauty community struggle to redefine itself.  At the heart of our salons is love. Love is the magic that unites, grows, heals and cures.  We are committed to putting our differences aside, advocating for each other’s basic human rights, and becoming better allies. We value listening, hearing and seeing people for their diversity and uniqueness. 

Thank you for attending our Ted Talk. We hope that you learned something about our salon, our industry and our mission. We are up to big things and are grateful to have the privilege of loving others through hair! – XOXO, Somer

frequently asked questions

Awesome, we love that. We offer several options for you to earn hours. Fill out the application and we will set you up for a shadow interview.

We will reach out via email (be sure and check your spam) to offer you several date and time options for a Shadow Interview.

Dress to impress (in all black of course). Wear professional clean shoes that are comfortable to stand in. Have a plan to arrive early so we can get to know you. Be sure and email us what you thought after your experience!

Our training program is customized to you! No two training programs are the same. We have an awesome 5 Day Bootcamp that you help customize with models. We no longer use long term mentoring with one stylist as a training system. We see the greatest benefit to new stylists to have the opportunity to work with the entire team as an apprentice on shift and to do hair for your guests approx 6-8 weeks from starting.

Trios has an Apprentice program that includes a balance of opportunity shifts and team apprentice shifts for 4-6 months.

XOXO initially trains at Trios and after Bootcamp they are a Level One doing hair Full-Time.

Full time requirement for insurance benefits is 30 hours a week or 22 shifts a month.

I love this conversation. The price menu and average ticket of the salon matters more than a higher commission rate. ie: Salon A has a $70 average ticket with a 60% Commission. This means you would make $42 with a $10.50 tip for a total of $52.50. Salon B has a $100 average ticket with a 45% Commission. At Salon B you would make $45 with a $15 tip for a total of $60. Working smart not hard is at the core of our business coaching!

I am obsessed with coaching stylists. The average cosmetologist in the United States will make $27,401  while in Nebraska the average drops to $24,383.  At our salons, stylists that are around one year out of school are making between $21-$25/hour. The yearly earnings for stylists in our salons are between $40,000-$140,000 for the exact same hours. This is why we believe, “You can always make more money, but you can’t make more time.” Business coaching + Luxury Salon + Awesome Average Ticket = Work smart, not hard.

Since the re-opening of salons in Spring 2020 we are averaging 400+ New Guests per month. We are bursting at the seams with opportunity and growth for anyone ready to have a full book.

No. Product Fees are so 1999. Providing everything including full color libraries, shampoo lounge back bar, treatments and styling products is luxury!

I heard you were a cult. This one makes us giggle. We admit that we have really strong systems and beliefs that maintain our drama free culture. We are very devoted to leaving people and the planet better than the way we found it. We believe in challenging the status quo to advance our company and community. We are committed to continued personal growth and courageous conversations. This freaks some people out and THAT’S OKAY! We love that our team is excited about what we can do together. Beauty is a community!

You can choose. We will show you the amazing benefits of working nights and weekends until you have an established income you love. Then we will show you the magic of moving to daytime shifts. So many options since we are open seven days a week with several shifts to choose from!

This is a big no-no. Performing services outside of a licensed establishment in the State of Nebraska puts your professional license at risk. Any service covered by cosmetology that you perform, except for theatrical, is illegal to do and the State investigates these matters very seriously. There are no insurance companies that will cover damages for on-site travel services, which holds you personally liable for any damages that may occur. 

We do not have a spa, apply lashes or makeup. We have chosen to focus all of our energy into being the best hair salon and specialize in hair services.

That’s amazing and we want to help you in any way that we can. 

We currently offer Babe and Cinderella Extensions. 

Yes we have a very unique career path that will help you grow you income, eradicate debt and provide you with ownership opportunites for your future! 

From time to time we have availability on our support staff team. We are looking for responsible, professional humans that are strong communicators. If this sounds like you please apply here.
