Wait until you see what they do this year!

Less than a year and a half ago, we had someone who started at one of our shops, just out of school, and embraced our process. They are one of the 9 who earned over $60,000 last year (33 hrs per week avg.).

“When I was getting towards graduation I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, a bunch of places came to talk at school about what they did/afforded but the one that stuck with me was Jude’s Barbershop. I was able to come and do a tour and see how it worked and I knew that that’s what I wanted to do. My ah-ha moment was when Marissa was explaining it and breaking it down for me. The level system helped push me towards new goals and grow my potential as a stylist. My manager (Marissa) was always in my corner telling me I have the potential to move up, always pushing in the best ways to grow as a stylist which made me want to level up. Mentoring in the first year was a surprise and a huge opportunity that was presented to me. This experience has also been amazing to see how a shop runs behind the scenes. My end goal is to use this opportunity to become the best stylist I can be.”

For Year 2023

Based on the year so far, Jude’s Barbershop has Barbers & Stylists with Gross Income, including tips where they are on pace to finish the year;

Cosmetology was always a field of interest for me. Ever since I was a little girl I would always style my barbies’ hair, and even try to cut my own! When I was in cosmetology school, I was introduced to Jude’s at a career fair held by my school. Out of all the booths, Jude’s Barbershop was the first to catch my attention. Not only did they have a ton of locations to choose from, but to my surprise they were a family owned company! As a stylist that was really important for me to feel like I was apart of a community and not just a number. I’ve been with Jude’s coming up on 3 years now and I couldn’t ask for a better family! I started knowing nothing but how to hold a pair of clippers, little did I know how far this company would take me. I’ve grown so much as a stylist, team member, and now manager of our West River Dr. location thanks to Jude’s. They not only welcomed me into the industry brand new with open arms, but also formed me into the stylist I am now. Looking back, I would’ve ran at the idea of ever becoming a manager. Jude’s gave me the confidence, education, and drive that I needed to be successful and I’m excited to continue to grow with my team and this company!
