Kantor & Company / Multiple Positions

While we are highly selective in our hiring process, our culture is one of inclusion. At Kantor & Company, you will find yourself working collaboratively with a team to meet your clients' needs. This approach is based upon a shared vision for the client and for the business as a whole. Stylists must have the desire to perfect their craft under Eileen’s guidance.  

Kantor & Company is a craft salon where experienced stylists can join our team, and newly-licensed stylists may join as auxiliary.

The auxiliary model is an essential component to a craft salon. “The old model of hair salons is over," says Kantor. Instead, our consultation-based approach and apprenticeship model means that stylists have an incentive to consult, execute a client’s vision, and perfect their craft. With Kantor & Company, you will experience a unique, collaborative environment in which you can flourish.  

Under the  auxiliary model, you'll continually practice the architecture and artistry of hairstyling. By being an auxiliary, instead of an apprentice or assistant, you'll also be able to cultivate your own clientele while furthering your education.
