We’re looking for passionate and driven industry innovators to join our exceptional salon family.

For over thirty years, Strands for Hair has been committed to offering services that exceed client expectations. Stationed in a bright, inviting locale in sunny San Mateo, Strands is praised for its tranquil, spa-like atmosphere and array of luxurious beauty treatments. The team at Strands Salon fuses impeccable technique with the finest products available to deliver unparalleled services that soothe the senses. Our mission is to leave guests, who come from all over the greater Peninsula and beyond, feeling like their best selves.

 Whether you’re looking for your start in the industry or a place to further your seasoned talents, we'd like to sit down and listen to you.

 What you'll need to succeed

  • Be a motivated team player with good client relation skills
  • Have a passion for customer service and the art of cosmetology.
  • Have a valid, updated State of California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology license (applicants must already have a license or provide proof of a scheduled test date. If hired, they will then receive an advanced complimentary training program at Strands with potential of official employment.)
  • 1-2 years previous salon experience
  • Open to hair education
  • Be able to commit to a full-time employment schedule of Tuesday through Saturday with two evenings a week — ideally. But we understand you have life responsibilities, and during our conversation we'll learn what those are and how we might make it work.
  • English proficiency


We are a salary and/or commission-based salon, offering incentive programs, extensive benefit packages (fulltime), team perks, quarterly in-salon education, and so much more.
