Stylist Levels

New Talent

New Talent stylists have recently graduated from a professional school and have obtained their state license. They are enrolled in StudioC A Beauty Lounge New Talent training program.  They offer most services, yet will not qualify for more challenging technical ones such as a color correction until they reach the Protégé level.  Their heavily discounted prices reflect their “New Talent” student status and therefore may not include a “redo” guarantee.  However, this level includes all elements of StudioC A Beauty Lounge service experience such as scalp massage and complementary makeup touch-up. This level of service may not always be available.


Protégé stylists have tested out of the New Talent training program.  They are pursuing StudioC A Beauty Lounge’s advanced training programs to further develop their skills and meet StudioC A Beauty Lounge’s standards of excellence.  They typically have from one to three years of experience.


Studio stylists have successfully completely advanced training programs, including all L’Oréal Professionel color, cutting, and Kerastase required curriculum.  They typically have from 2 to 5 years of experience.


Our most experienced specialists. Masters bring rich education and experience to their clients.  They are acknowledged inside of the professional network as leaders in their field.


Specialists are available for specific services such as Men’s Cutting, Color, Women’s Short Hair, etc.  Specialists are the very best that StudioC A Beauty Lounge has to offer at their chosen specialty, and may not be available at all times.


These seasoned professionals typically have 5+ years of experience. They have met StudioC A Beauty Lounge requirements for specific advanced cutting and color classes, and demonstrated their expertise and proficiency.  Their commitment to ongoing education keeps them at the forefront of new techniques and trends.
