Default steiner hairstylist

I just got hired as a hairstylist with Steiner. I leave for my training next Friday. I still don't know what cruise line I will be working on. I've read most of the posts on here and I haven't come across very much info regarding the salon and hairstylists. I was wondering if anyone had any info like, hours the salon is open, how many stylists on board, is the work mostly updos and blowdrys, what privledges stylists have, would i be in a room with someone else that works in the spa/salon, and just anything in general.
Any information you guys have would be greatly appreciated, as I am just 21 and this is my first time travelling outside of Canada!

Thanks so much
Heather

This is a bit of a guess - but I would think that your entitlements would be very close to that of any shoppie. Good luck on your first time at sea!

There are some ships you have to be over 23 and 25 to go on, i know under 21s (i am 19) are limited to Costa, Carnival and Royal Caribbean..

You wont get told your ship until you get details about 2/3 days before you go. you may be in training a few weeks, you may be in there up to six weeks. girls i was with that were hairdressers were still there at 5 weeks..

You get 1.5 days off per week (not all same day) and it depends on the ship your privileges..

Big ships have between 5 - 20 spa staff, smaller ships have between 3 - 10

wow...5 weeks. i was thinking close to 3. lets just hope i've got the skills required already...i would hope so considering i've been in the industry for 2 years now but i do realize there are some things that I dont know when it comes to ship hairdressing....but certainly not 5 weeks worth!! I guess we'll just have to see what happens!! What are you employed as?

I'm a beauty therapist, with the hairdressers AND beauty and massage, training is only about 2 weeks, but you are picked for a certain ship by the MD of Steiner on your second day. They wait until your space is ready before you go.. it could be straight after 2 week, it could be up to 10 weeks (hardly though) As the MD knows exactly who is perfect for what cruise line
