So often we are asked, "Will my stylist get commission for that?" The answer is no. No they won't. You're probably thinking, "How can this be? How do they make money?" if you've ever been a guest at Studio Montage, you've probably noticed a different vibe as soon as you walk in. You'll find more of us smiling here than you will at other places. Unlike many salon, you'll notice team members helping each other in order to stay on schedule and deliver a better experience for you. In fact, it's not uncommon. for you to receive services from one, two or even three people before you leave. It's all part of making your day. Behold! You're about to learn our severe to happiness.
Are you ready? Here it is: We don't pay commission. Not on service sales and not on product sales. You know how you dread going to some places because as soon as you walk in the door; you have a salesperson drop off the ceiling or leap from behind a large potted plant? We know the feeling too, and we don't like it. So we designed our system to be different and more enjoyable. How, you ask? We compensate all our staff by salary, a very nice salary. This mean no matter what's going on, whether they are booked or not, they are getting paid.
By compensating our staff on what's know as "Team Based" system, it allows us to function more efficiently and to allow more flexibility to our guests. Can't get in with your favorite stylist or maybe you want to try someone else? Go for it! We don't mind, in fact, we encourage it. The entire focus of our team is to ensure every guest's day is made. This even comes down to products. When our staff is recommending product, it's because they truly believe it's the best product for you, not because they're trying to make commission on the sale. The same goes for services too!
So next time you feel like switching it up a little, just let us know. After all, variety is the spice of life.
