Apprentice Stylist

"I was personally drawn to Curve because I wanted to work with curly hair. No one in school, including the teachers, knew how to deal with curly hair. When I asked my teacher that first week how in depth they go into curls and they said that if I wanted to work with curly hair I would need specialized training, I decided I wanted to work for a curl-specific salon. I found Curve and booked a haircut appointment to see what it was all about. I loved the products and how to they were all good for curly hair. After that, Curve was my top choice for my hairstyling career." - Amy, joined Curve in July 2021

We're looking for a motivated individual to be our Apprentice Stylist who is upbeat, detail oriented, and loves working collaboratively with others.  You must be currently enrolled in or have graduated from an Ontario accredited hairstyling school.

Our Ideal Apprentice Stylist is: 

Pleasant to work with - Hair is fun and a fabulous industry to be in but it is also serious business. As hair professionals we know when to flip the switch from fun and games, to game-on and so should you. Bring a friendly, positive, professional attitude and you'll do well. 

An organizational wizard - As creative people we can get a little scattered at times. We need you to keep us on track and on time for when our next guest arrives. The beauty business is amazing but it is also a lot of work so multi-tasking and self-direction is a must. 

A do-er - We're smart and innovative and need you to be too. We'll give you training and guidelines but you need to be able to take initiative and roll with it. 

Detail oriented - We have zero tolerance for pieces falling through the cracks. The right person takes pride in crossing their t's and dotting their i's. If you're unsure what to do in a scenario, you must ask questions.

Has goals - We're obsessed with learning and excelling. It's our top priority to ensure that every member of the team is working to achieve their professional dreams.
