Core Values

Face First

We head into life unarmored and face first recognizing the necessity of failure. We allow ourselves to not have all the answers, backtrack, and learn from our mistakes. Recognizing that failure is part of greatness and when we stand up after face planting we rise up stronger every time.

Open Heart, Strong Back

We choose courage over comfort. We choose what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy. We take personal responsibility for our energy, emotions, attitudes and behaviors, knowing our strong backs ultimately lead to our success. We are open-hearted and receive loving feedback and are willing to love others enough to give honest feedback. Clear is kind!

All In

We come from an “all in” mentality. We show up looking the part, with humility, on time, prepared, and ready to engage with everyone in our path. We make other people feel seen, heard, important and cared for. We believe this is the clearest path to connection. We acknowledge that if we are not moving forward, we are moving backward. We live in abundance, choosing to acknowledge that our mindset is the only thing holding us back.

Extreme Ownership

We share every responsibility, coming together for the greater good. We are stronger together than we are alone, and we show respect and gratitude for each other. We take personal responsibility for the action and discipline required to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Grit & Grind

When the going gets rough we dig deep and work hard. We take all necessary action to operate at the top of our game. We are constant students as we know this is the way to mastery.

Rather than tell you, we thought we would show you the three levels to our Career Path.

After applying, you’ll begin with an initial conversation and salon tour to acquaint you with our environment and culture. 

  • Initial Conversation and Salon Tour: We start with a casual, no-pressure chat to get to know each other better. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, learn about our salon culture, and determine if we’re the right fit for you. Additionally, we’ll provide you with a tour of our salon, allowing you to get a feel for the environment where you could potentially be working.
  • Culture Fit Interview: We value teamwork and collaboration, so before proceeding further, we’ll delve into how your personality and work style align with our salon’s culture. This interview helps us ensure that you’ll thrive in our supportive environment.
  • Shadow Day and Technical Assessment: Experience firsthand what it’s like to work at Urban Evolution Salon by joining us for a shadow day. This immersive experience allows you to observe our team in action and get a feel for our salon environment. Following the shadow day, we’ll conduct a technical assessment to gauge your skills and expertise. This may include a demonstration of your haircutting, coloring, or styling techniques.
  • Final Discussion: Before making any decisions, we’ll have a final discussion to address any remaining questions or concerns. We’ll also outline the details of our compensation package, benefits, and career development opportunities.
  • Welcome Aboard: Once you’ve accepted our offer, you’ll officially become part of the Urban Evolution Salon family! We’ll provide you with all the necessary resources and support to hit the ground running and thrive in your new role.

At UES, we’re deeply committed to your professional growth from day one. Through the Protege Program, experienced stylist integration, and ongoing educational opportunities, we ensure you have the knowledge, skills, and support needed to excel. Regular coaching, a collaborative environment, and a focus on the latest trends and techniques are just a few ways we help you grow with us.

If you’re passionate about making others feel good, crave creativity in your work, and value continuous learning and teamwork, UES could be your ideal salon home.

Join us and be part of elevating the hairstyling world together.

At Urban Evolution Salon (UES), we’ve carefully considered various pay structures within our industry to best support our team and clients. After thorough exploration, we’ve proudly embraced Team-Based Pay since 2020. But what does this mean for you as a part of our team? Let’s break it down.

Comparing Industry Pay Structures:

  • Booth Rental: Often seen as the path to independence, booth rental places the entirety of business growth, expenses, and responsibilities on the individual. From education costs to handling all client interactions and managing supplies, the burden of the business falls squarely on your shoulders. While it offers perceived flexibility, it lacks stability, team support, and can hinder financial growth and security due to inconsistent income and the lack of benefits like retirement contributions.

  • Commission: In a commission-based structure, income is directly tied to the volume of services performed. This can incentivize higher productivity but also introduces financial instability due to fluctuating schedules and client attendance. While some expenses are covered by the salon owner, increasing your income typically means raising prices, which may not always be feasible or align with market expectations.

Why Team-Based Pay Works Better for Us:

  • Hourly (Team-Based Pay): Our shift to Team-Based Pay was motivated by our commitment to providing a reliable, financially secure career for our team members. Here’s why it’s beneficial:
    • Steady Income: With hourly pay, you enjoy a consistent income, unaffected by cancellations or no-shows.
    • Team Environment: We thrive together, sharing successes and supporting one another’s growth.
    • Education and Growth: UES invests in your professional development, offering paid education and time to learn.
    • Financial Stability: Regular, predictable pay supports financial goals like buying a car or a home.
    • Comprehensive Coverage: The salon covers all operational costs, including supplies, taxes, and education, allowing you to focus on your craft.
    • Luxury Experience: Our salon environment and pricing reflect the high-quality service we provide, supporting sustainable career growth.


Moving to Team-Based Pay, paired with a significant price increase, allowed us to offer unparalleled benefits, including paid time off, which traditional commission models couldn’t provide. It’s essential to remember that in this structure, service revenue contributes to the collective success, covering not just pay, but also support staff, education, and ensuring a luxury salon experience for our clients.

The initial months may present challenges as you adjust and contribute to our collective goals. However, the outcomes are rewarding, offering financial security, professional growth, and a supportive team environment that fosters success for everyone involved.

If you’re ready for a career that values your growth, stability, and happiness, UES is eager to welcome you. Let’s build a beautiful future together.
