Education is at the core of our culture. As trends evolve, we too must adapt.

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 allow you to payroll deduct the cost at a level that leaves you comfortable but makes outside education attainable for you. HAUS also covers 25% of the overall class cost - 50% if you come back and teach the crew what you’ve learned!
