How do hairdressers make money?
SAN FRANCISCO — Hairdressers make a lot of money, but they do it from the ground up.
Hairdressers are responsible for the hair that goes into their trolleys and for the torsos that they deliver.
So when they work with a client, they must pay for the use of the trolley and the drivers.
That means the hairdresses make about $2,500 a month, according to the Hairdresser Certification Institute.
That’s more than enough to pay for their basic needs and for all of the expenses associated with the job, including rent, transportation and cleaning, according the institute.
The average hairderer spends about $6,000 a year, and about one-third of them work full-time, according a survey by the National Hairdress Association.
But some hairderers are paid more than others.
A hairdressor with a master’s degree makes about $10,000 annually, while a hairdressed apprentice with a bachelor’s degree earns about $9,000, the institute said.
That is a higher salary than most other jobs, but not by much.
Some hairdriers earn $30,000 or more a year.
They also have a better job security than other workers.
They have access to the same training programs and benefits that workers have, said Michael DeFilippo, a professor at the University of Southern California’s Graduate School of Business.
“You get a much higher salary and a much better opportunity to make a good living,” DeFannos said.
“If you want to make money, you have to learn how to work, how to manage,” he said.
Most hairdriers earn between $10 and $30 per hour, depending on the amount of work they do, according in a survey conducted by the Haircutter Certification Institute and the San Francisco Chronicle.
Some hairdrers make less than that.
A hairdirl who works with a full-fledged barber earns between $45 and $60 per hour.
The highest paid hairdrapper is a hairstylist with a degree who earns $50,000 to $60,000.
