Student Hair Services
on each other and learning than sitting around. When they look good, they are better advertisement to potential guests, and if they enjoy getting services, they share more positively with prospective future professionals. If they meet the highest criteria, they get their services free on one speciﬁc day of the month. Otherwise, they pay half-price. Jean Ann Hentges, Stewart School, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Do you let your students receive hair services in your school? If so, do they use the products that are intended for your customers? We let our students have hair services once a week; however we require that they bring their own supplies to do their hair. Some have a big problem with that. They want to use our towels, etc. Any suggestions or opinions?

s a 20+ year stylist, I’ve always used the products and towels in the salons where I worked. As a school owner, I allow the students free range of products that we use on clients, but they are required to pay half-price for the treatments and they use the school towels for free.

he students use all of our products and supplies. We do not charge a fee for haircuts/styles and charge a very nominal fee for chemical services. Brenda Scharman, Cameo College, Murray, Utah
t our school, we connect everything to attendance and grades. Approval for personal services to be received or given by a student are based on the following guidelines. 1. Student must maintain good attendance (90 percent or above). 2. Student has to demonstrate a positive attitude and have no school-rule violations within the last 30 days. 3. A student cannot receive services during peak service hours and cannot block off time for personal services with any student.

4. No family or friends can get services on Fridays or Saturdays (these are peak hours and days). 5. Student must pay half of the menu price for any service received. 6. Appointments for friends or family to receive a service must be scheduled through the front desk. 7. Student must maintain and have an academic average of 80 percent. 8. Approval from the clinical ﬂoor instructor is required to receive or give a personal service to a student. In addition we allow students to schedule services for themselves when they are not in school. This works well as that student gets to experience being the client and pick up on what they have to do to give excellent customer service. Students sign a check-off sheet the ﬁrst day of school listing these guidelines, and we rarely have issues. Lourdes Santos-De Toth, Paramount Institute of Hair, Skin & Nails, Lakeland, Florida
his is very similar to what we do. We do allow them to use the products we use on our guests so they know how it works and can give testimonials. We’ve believe that we’d rather have them working
ur students must earn their personal services weekly based on attendance and rebooking. A student can earn up to two personal service sheets a week, and they must be used within 30 days. If the student wants a chemical service done they must pay for product before service is started. All back-bar and towels are free for students’ use as well.
