Hi Kate, this group is for business owners so perhaps someone will have a recommendation for you on recruiting, but it is not the best place for your job post.

Try adding it as a discussion to the forum area on the main page. I would suggest you build out your profile with a salon description and pics etc, so that anyone who see's your post can get a better idea who you are and what your salon offers, good luck!

Hello, I am an Aveda salon owner looking for stylists.  Finding it very difficult to find someone in our small mountain town.  Would this be an appropriate group to post the job on?  If we have any solutions to post positions that I can't see on Hairbrained??
