Alline Salon Group - A Salon Employer of Choice
Alline Salon Group prides itself on being the salon employer of choice for stylists. Mike Sarafa, Alline Salon Group CEO, outlines what makes the company different than others in the industry

The current job market is in an unusual place. Most economists believe that we are in the beginning of a recession that will last into 2023. However, we are also at or near “full employment” in economic terms. The bottom line is that there is a lot of competition for good employees.

In our business, licensed cosmetologists go to school for anywhere between one and three years, which is time consuming and costly. At Alline Salon Group, as a salon employer of choice, we take the stylist career path seriously—everything from the employee experience to the interview process, onboarding, the first week on the job and more.

We have put in place state-of-the-art tools that are second to none for the hair care industry. These include our own Training and Education Department, plus an employee engagement platform called AllineEngage. This platform includes the Alline Aspire program, which provides our employees with opportunities to win travel and other rewards. Our stylists can also take advantage of our tuition reimbursement program if they have student debt related to cosmetology school. We also offer health and wellness programs, a best-in-class health benefits and 401K plan. Alline has also recently launched an option for new stylists to select a guaranteed hourly wage before moving to the industry’s most competitive pay plan. This allows new stylists to build up clientele and get their feet wet without having to worry about a commission structure right out of school. Our company is also involved in community giveback programs, which all employees can participate in. Our goal is to always build a culture of being ALL IN!

We take our Alline Salon Group Core Values seriously:


These truly embody Alline culture. It is what we strive for each day. If you are looking for a fun and rewarding career as a professional stylist, Alline Salon Group has a spot for you!
