Salon Managers are responsible for coordinating the day-to-day operation of the business and for planning, monitoring and evaluating the work of the team. The modern salon manager needs well-developed managerial skills, especially in the areas of small business finance and marketing. This includes social media strategy and merchandising. Additionally, the competitive employment environment means salon managers need a good understanding of modern human resource practices.
