4. Being questioned
As a stylist, you have to be great at customer service, so many of the standard questions will most likely be about that. In addition to, why you want to work there, where you see yourself in the future, what are your strengths and weaknesses, etc.
Being a licensed barber stylist will always give you a leg up, but there are other things that can set you apart, such as, did you win a competition? Were you featured somewhere? Or are there reviews somewhere you can show off? Even if you don’t have a lot of experience, these little things can show great work ethic and that you are eager to learn more.
5. Be Demo ready
Be prepared to wield your tools! Most salon/barber shops will require you to show your skills, also known as an audition or trade test, performed on a model or a mannequin. Plan to demonstrate a style or cut that exhibits your knowledge and skill, without over challenging yourself and taking up a lot of time. You can always show more upon request.
TIP: research industry techniques and product and style trends to plug into conversations and answers. This will show that you are on top of your game!
