Q & A with Monique, Salon Manager

How long have you been with Supercuts?

I’ve been working as a stylist at Supercuts since October of 2013 and as the shop manager since September of last year.

 

Why did you decide to work for Supercuts? What makes it unique?

I decided to come to Supercuts so I could work on my own customers. Previously I was a salon apprentice working for minimum wage and basically being a glorified receptionist. Coming to Supercuts I got to work with real customers from day one! Receiving one-on-one training through HSA [a Supercuts-exclusive training program] and help from my awesome boss and coworkers. I really learned to be comfortable with all types of haircuts.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

The best advice I ever received was when tackling something challenging to take things one step at a time. Over the years this has come in handy when it comes to difficult haircuts/colors, busy days where the to-do list is never-ending, and overwhelming large projects.

 

What do you love most about Supercuts’ customers?

What I love most about Supercuts customers are my group of regulars who I see frequently. We have really gotten to know each other, especially those that have been around these past six years and seen me grow into the stylist I am today. Cutting their hair isn’t even work; it’s like catching up with a friend.

 

What makes you #SuperIntoHair?

What makes me #superintohair is seeing exactly how a new cut, style, or color can completely change someone. When they leave looking their best and confident in how they look, that’s the best experience.
