A happy employee means a happy salon. If your employee is unhappy it will quickly be obvious to the other employees and being noticed by the clients.
3-Relationship with the team
It is important to work well as a team and develop a good environment within the salon. Human beings love having positive interactions. It can really affect someone emotions to work within a negative environment. People who work well together can develop creatively and become more productive. Building great working relationships can open doors to new projects and promote career advancement within the salon.
4. Opportunities to Use Their Skills and Abilities
Therapists want to develop and grow their skills. If they’re not able to do so, they’ll find a better option for their future. If an employee can’t see a continuous career growth within their current salon, they are likely to look elsewhere. As a manager, your role is to help your therapists to clear a defined path to achieve a dream career.
5. The contribution of a Good Work Ethic to the Salon.

The therapist needs to feel connected and part of the big picture of the future of your salon. The therapists’ contribution is an important part of your salon growth. If you exclude them from your projects, they are likely to feel unwanted and you will eventually have to get into the entire process of hiring again.

Recognition can be expressed offering regular treatments or products, pay rise or time off making the therapist feel valued for her contribution.
