What Is a Hair Stylist Contract?

Although in some cases contracts are not necessarily issued to employees, it is highly advisable to have one. Why so? Both parties may have difficulty trying to contest any future issues that may arise without this document. This is why it is important to draw up a contract with anyone you hire most especially for the long-term. Contracts establish a binding agreement and are lawfully enforceable between the parties involved. The same story goes for a hair stylist contract, this written document is used to officially outline the terms of a working arrangement between a company (usually a salon or barbershop) and professional hairstylists. One arrangement is that hairstylists will pay the business owner to rent their workspace on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. It is also common for the stylist to receive a percentage of profits that are paid out as a commission. Another important use of the contract between a hairstylist and the business owner is that it prevents the hairstylist from directly competing with the salon during working hours, and unauthorized circulation of any trade secrets will be legally dealt with.

How To Write a Hair Stylist Contract?

Hairstylists often act as independent contractors and as mentioned rent out their workspace in a salon or barbershop they are associated with. This also means they are responsible for obtaining their own clients aside from walk-in customers. So all these details and arrangements must be formally complied with in a hairstylist contract and signed by both parties. To start writing this contract, the following basic elements are usually found in this document.

I. Opening Statement

Like most contracts, the first portion indicates the basic details such as the individual names or company names and the location/address of the parties involved in the contract.

II. Services Provided / Scope of Services

As a contractor, it is relevant in any contract to provide the list of services that will be rendered by the hairstylist. Not to mention, the job title and responsibilities he or she has within the hair salon or barbershop.

III. Basic Benefits

Since the hairstylist will become part of the company, it is relevant to include the working schedule and the corresponding holiday and leave benefits in the contract.

IV. Business’ Rent Expectations And The Contractor’s Compensation Requirements

It should be clearly defined in the contract the agreed rent the hairstylist will be paying, whether there is a set amount or in percentage. Whichever was initially agreed on must be put into writing. The same thing goes for the compensation or commission basis agreement. It should be indicated how much percentage will be paid to the contractor and the schedule of payment as well.

V. Other Additional Details

You may want to include other relevant details in the contract such as confidentiality clause, liabilities, cancellation and termination clause, and other important arrangements between the business establishment and the hair stylist.
