Master stylist are trained and educated beyond state and local cosmetology requirements. Above all else, they are highly skilled at their craft. Many began their careers working under other master stylists. Competition for apprenticeships under a master stylist is fierce. A Master stylist is someone who has excelled through years of experience and have become a “master” at their craft. They are more knowledgeable and their work is expected to be of a better quality.
Master stylists earn a reputation as trendsetters. They perform precision haircuts and are experts at color formulation. A tell-tale sign
of a true master stylist is the use of only shears and razors when cutting hair. They develop a “signature look.” Clients flock to them
because of their work. They often have waiting lists.
Because master stylists distinguish themselves as innovators, other stylists want to train under them. They may decide to take on a few
stylists as apprentices. Working under a master stylist for several years is considered the best path to becoming a master stylist.
