Education is at the core of our culture. As trends evolve, we too must adapt. In order to remain current, we offer a myriad of advanced education classes, with topics based on the wants and needs of our team. HAUS offers internal and external advanced education opportunities multiple times a year to our team to keep them inspired and motivated when working behind the chair.

HAUS offers to cover the upfront cost of any outside education class you choose to take, and allows you to payroll deduct the cost at a level that leaves you comfortable but makes outside education attainable for you.  HAUS also covers a portion of the overall class cost - even more if you come back and teach the crew what you’ve learned!

The HAUS apprenticeship was like graduate school after college, a time to focus on what I love most and perfect my hair coloring skills. The things you learn in beauty school are the basics and only the starting point. The craft comes after. At first you know very little about how the industry truly works, how to thrive, how to balance yourself, how to earn clients. At HAUS I got a supportive community of professionals to guide me. Four and a half years after completing the program, I have become more successful than I could have imagined in this industry. Being an apprentice at HAUS is hard work, but it’s worth it in the end. I promise.

At Haus I feel like a valued member of the team, where my voice is heard and my ideas are taken seriously. The environment is supportive and fosters creative and professional growth. I’ve never been in a job where so much emphasis is placed on continued education to develop skills and stay ahead of the curve. My peers are the best in the industry, which keeps me on my toes. I’m continuously motivated to do my best.

After successfully completing our program, level 1 service providers on average experience a 40% increase in service sales and a 20% increase in product sales once on the floor after 1 year. So far, 60% of our graduates have received price increases at their first annual review (within 6 months of hitting the floor). Our esteemed training paired with our award-winning salon teams and nurturing environment create the perfect incubator for successful careers.  

I enrolled in an apprenticeship after Cosmetology school to improve my core skills and be better at cutting hair. After completing the HAUS apprenticeship, I can’t even imagine starting work at a salon right out of school. After waiting so long to become a stylist, I wanted to start my career off right. This program gave me skills, confidence, and clients almost right away after I completed the apprenticeship. Choosing to do an apprenticeship was the best decision I could have made for my career and I am so excited for all of the opportunities that it has given me. Specializing in your craft will make you that much better.

During my HAUS apprenticeship, our education team gave me the perfect stepping stones to hit the floor in stride in a high-intensity salon. Observing how other successful colorists and stylists are able to build their business as well as their hair repertoire in a fast-paced work environment was extremely helpful. As a salon we are always growing and learning. It was a truly great experience having a team of the most talented artists in the business provide me with tips, tricks, and insights that I couldn’t have received anywhere else.

Learning from different educators every Monday has made me such a versatile colorist. This program has taught me not only about coloring hair, but it has also taught me how to build my business while still focusing on my soft skills to set me apart from other artists.
