Placement Assignments
St. Louis provides the opportunity for you to apply your in-class and on-site salon learning, by arranging a placement experience in a salon.  St. Louis teaching staff work closely with students to ensure that basic cutting and colouring techniques are solidified before sending students ready to do so to an off-site salon.   Total hours of salon experience is 280 hours, spread out over 8 weeks. Length of each shift is predetermined between the employer, co-op teacher and the student.  Note there will be varied evening and weekend shifts as part of your placement experience.

Professional Expectations

Your professionalism in the workplace is paramount, and St. Louis will expect the same professional standards in the classroom. All professional expectations around attire, professional conduct, attendance and who you report to etc. are all clearly explained during class, prior to placement and during placement.  St. Louis takes tremendous pride in the reputation and quality of the St. Louis Hairstyling program and as a Stylist-in-training student, you will learn that these expectations during the program carry forward into the salon.

For over ten years, St. Louis Hairstyling program has partnered with numerous salons who have worked with our students ready for placement.  As we celebrate our 30th anniversary as a school, please allow us to send A HUGE thank you to all of them!
