Community Business Feature: Ten Friends Blow Dry & Style House
Recently, we reached out to a number of local salons to ask them what they think of our graduates they’ve hired. Frank Zito at Ten Friends Blow Dry & Style House had nothing but amazing things to say about our alumni, and we wanted to feature his business and remarks on our blog!

Our Graduates at Ten Friends
Ten Friends currently has two of our graduates working at their locations, Aly and Cassie. Aly has been styling with them for four months now, and Frank says that he loves her professionalism and cooperative attitude. She is prompt both with her clients and with the business, and she works great with the other members of the team. Cassie is newly hired, and she decided she wanted to work with the company when she found out they have a vegan line of products to use for clients. She’s been motivated to work hard and perform well!
Why Work at a Blowout Bar?
It’s a reality, some cosmetologists simply love styling hair and would rather spend their time treating and styling hair instead of cutting it. Working at a blowout bar like Ten Friends could allow you to focus on what you truly love and less time doing things you may not be passionate about. Ten Friends is also unique because it doesn’t work on individual commissions, they give each of their stylists hourly pay, insurance, 401ks, and more to be a part of the team! One of the best parts about joining their team is that the company is growing and will need excellent leadership as the business opens more and more locations in the coming years. This could be your opportunity to start with the business and grow yourself with it!
