Beauty means different things to different people. Some crave color that blends or adds contrast, while others are looking to tame or enhance natural texture.

At Salon Aster, we use techniques and products backed by performance and knowledge-based experience to offer hair care as unique as you.

Hair Stylists Needed:
Competitively-Priced Booth Rental
or Flexible Commission Pay

Salon Aster is looking to partner with professional hair stylists who are skilled in color, cutting or hair extensions, or willing to learn.  We are an intimate, four-station, upscale, boutique salon in a busy area, and have a regular overflow of clients. Located blocks from the Southport Corridor and one block from Lincoln Park, neighborhood patrons enjoy the friendly, full-service care and attention we offer. 

Does setting your own schedule and specialty services while having full benefits of commission, like education support and access to exclusive products, appeal to you? If you have regular, active clientele, then booth rent might be for you.

Requirements include:

  • A valid Illinois Cosmetology or Barbering license.
  • At least two years of experience behind the chair for hair stylist positions.
  • Assistant applicants must have already obtained a Cosmetology or Barbering license.

Check out our benefits too!
