As a part of the Wheelhouse family you’ll not only experience top-notch education but we’re proud to be one of the few salons offering the following benefits:
Health + Dental Insurance / Retirement / Paid Vacation / Education
With every snip of the blade or stroke of the brush, we want to help people look and feel their best. At Wheelhouse, we’re passionate about education, fashion, and the art of hairdressing. You can always expect our team to be up to date on the latest trends and have fresh hair ideas.
We place a huge importance on education and believe that consistently HONING OUR CRAFT is the best way to not only stay inspired but also be the best at what we do.
We’ve hosted stylists from well-respected salons at Wheelhouse for instruction sessions and we’ve also traveled throughout the U.S. to attend classes. Brian Hickman from Local Honey joined us at the salon to brush up on our team’s cutting techniques. Lara Heist from Parlor and Juke came from Nashville to instruct on best practices for hair painting and we visited Miami to take an unstructured bob class with Oribe guru Kien Hoang.
In 2018, we hosted a cutting class taught by Howard McLaren, the Co-Founder of R+Co and saw the return of Brian Hickman to our Birmingham location by popular demand. We safely continued our 2020 education classes and received modern haircutting instruction, styling and product knowledge education over Zoom from trusted educators with Oribe and R+Co. We have also teamed up digitally to receive video content from quality educators such as Ashlee Norman, as well as zoom cutting instruction from Douglas McCoy, the owner of House of Pop.
Through 2021, we received education over a mix of Zoom and in-person from respected instructors like Stacey Ciceron on curl cutting and natural hair, Adam Federico on razor cutting and Sally Hershberger on shags.
In 2022, we sent our entire Birmingham and Huntsville staff to the Goldwell educational facilities in New York to be educated on high level color techniques and formulation. As well, 12 members of our staff were sent to Amsterdam in October 2022 to attend the Goldwell Global Experience Event. There, they were educated with stylists from around the globe during a three day event and experienced the Netherlands.
