    Former Employee - Top Stylist in London, England

    I worked at Toni & Guy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    very good education at the Academy at the time
    many co-workers absolutely passionate about hairdressing

    Cons

    salary - humiliating
    zero flexibility
    too much politics regarding progressing and accessing opportunities within company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay people more, keep them happy and avoid loosing qualified personnel and constant rotation of the staff
    bring back longer appointments time so you won't be loosing customers in the long run...
    be more flexible with the staff - might be worth it
    try to regain lost prestige...

    Pros

    If you'd like unparalleled access to top management TONI&GUY is the place for you. Leadership is extremely active and hardworking. There is a great work life balance, which is uncommon in an age where you're typically required to be on call 24/7.
    Bonus Perks:
    TONI&GUY offers stunning workspaces which has actually helped relive stress.
    Female Leadership

    Cons

    it is extremely important to have a solid foundation in your field before beginning a career at TONI&GUY. Guidance and training is readily available, but you should be ready to contribute to the team from day one. If you are a recent college graduate, consider interning with this company before you apply for a position.

    I have been working at Toni & Guy part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Free hair services for self, family, and friends.
    -40% off most products.
    -Meet amazing, promising artists. Some clients are super sweet, and many lovely co-workers.

    Cons

    -Overworked, underpaid. Wages based on TX wages which is barely enough for sharing a Los Angeles-based lifestyle with several others.
    -Favoritism and lack of consistency with rules.
    -Constantly making new and silly rules:
    ---front desk not allowed to have a garbage can. (Really?)
    ---front desk is supposed to wear horribly ill-fitting cheap vests, implemented rule AFTER hiring (Really)
    ---front desk not allowed to sit (8 hour days of standing in place). (REALLY?)
    -Director doesn't do a great job with proper communication; reclusive and bullies.
    -When hired, was told I would make easy commission. Once hired, I was told it was next to impossible to make that commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at my cons and find room for improvement.

    Before joining Toni&Guy as an employee, I regarded the company as a place I'd love to work. Over 5 years before getting hired, I was a client. I loved the people, and they loved me. Once inside, I've found it's not so glamorous.

    Treat your employees like people- not like slaves.

    Pros

    Easy going, laid back work environment. Clients are easy to work with and you are constantly getting more education. Also the ability to move up in tGe company

    Cons

    Working in a mall has its pros and cons. I'd rather the salon not be at the mall..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always be on your teams side.

    I have been working at Toni & Guy

    Pros

    Working with Wella products and getting training with wella
    Label m product training at tafe
    Training at toni & Guy academy
    Getting the opportunity to work back stage at fashion events

    Cons

    Very low wages
    Long work hours - no life outside of work
    Treated poorly by management, they are too money hungry
    Don't get paid overtime
    Always get negative feedback from our boss every Saturday meeting
    Toni & Guy adademy is very strict and slow pace, students get frustrated
    Hard to hit our targets, always feeling stressed
    Assistants are treated like slaves
    Prices are very expensive
    Customers are often forced to buy products by our boss, it looks unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to treat collegues fairly and lift your game. Staff need to be treated better, you need to think more about your employees than just how much money you're making. We're human and we do have a life outside of work, family also. We need to be able to provide for our family, it's very hard on the terrible wage you give us. Why charge double the average salon yet pay so little? You could at least pay overtime. I've worked 4 hours overtime this week and not a single cent was given.. This isn't good enough Toni & Guy.

    Pros

    If you are looking for experience, this is definitely the place to go. You work on anything they might need next which can range from interior design to billboard all the way to online banner and web micro-sites.

    Cons

    Experience is definitely the only pay off. You don't get payed as much, because they work with a skeleton crew you find yourself doing everything and management usually does not understand their roles in the company so their is a constant shift in titles and positions.
