Why YOU Should Become a Hairdresser in the Willamette Valley

By June 8, 2015Press Releases

By 2022, the field of Cosmetology is expected to grow by nearly 15%*. With well over 100 salons spanning from McMinnville to Stayton, and from Keizer to Albany, there are ample opportunities for you to become the master hairstylist you have always wanted to be.

Here at Johnny Matthew’s Hairdressing Training School in the heart of downtown Salem, Oregon, we are providing the unique opportunity for anyone to achieve their dream in as little as a year. Whether you are interested in becoming a hairstylist or a barber, we can easily cater to your needs. We offer a wide variety of classes, ranging from a simple one-length haircut, to a detailed fade with design work, and everything in-between.

We train students with an open mind- we’re not stuck in the 1960’s, demanding that students wrap hundreds of perms, and have to do a certain number of haircuts. We allow students to explore where their talents lie, and help them advance in that area. We offer in-depth color classes for our hair design students, which include the newest trends such as ombre’s, sombre’s, color melts, and specialty fashion colors. By encouraging students to dabble in all  areas of cosmetology, we are helping them become the best hairdresser they can be. Once a month, we have a guest barber in the school, to demonstrate that there are different ways to achieve a fade, a taper, or designs in the hair. We encourage students to ask questions and experiment with different techniques, and share their findings with one another.

After completing your training at Johnny Matthew’s, we send you out into the workforce with a high understanding of cuts, color, and customer service that will set you above and beyond the other cosmetology graduates searching for a station to hold. With your training in the Goldwell haircolor line, your solid understanding of the geometric approach to haircutting, and your attention to detail to win clients over, you will have your pick of salons to work at.
