You’ve found your passion, honed your skills, and graduated from beauty school ready to launch your career as a hairstylist. But where do you go from here? How do you develop your clientele? How do you confidently translate what you learned in class to actual clients’ hair? How do you find a salon with the right culture to develop lasting relationships and truly enjoy how you spend your days?
DL Lowry Salon loves helping stylists do just that, and more. Through our proven education model and salon philosophy that’s considered the gold standard in the industry, we give young stylists the tools, training, mentorship, etiquette, confidence, and know-how to build a thriving, rewarding career. And we have fun doing it!
The education begins for each DL Lowry stylist the same way – as an associate, no matter where they received their initial beauty school training from or how much additional training they’ve pursued. Every stylist on our team has gone through our Associate Program. Take a look at five reasons to join our program.
“By the time you are done with our program, you’ll have as much education as your average hair stylist has in over 10 years.”
Kari Rupenthal, Senior Stylist at DL Lowry
1. A FUN, SUPPORTIVE + COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENT
Owner David Lowry has created a salon atmosphere that is supportive more than competitive, where relationships among staff at all levels are authentic and nurturing, with more experienced stylists teaching and mentoring younger stylists, and those with expertise in one area complementing the work of a stylist with expertise in another. He has built an environment where stylists genuinely support each other’s growth and happiness and have clients’ best interests in mind.
2. A COMMITMENT TO PURSUING YOUR PASSIONS
Together, DL Lowry stylists have more than 230 years of experience. That creates an immense opportunity for knowledge sharing and collective problem solving to get the best results. But it also means that younger stylists are encouraged and supported to pursue certifications and advanced training in their passion areas. And for those who have been out of beauty school longer, in-salon trainings are scheduled on a regular basis to keep up with changing trends and techniques, products and treatments.
“DL Lowry stands out from other salons because of our education.”
Senior Stylist Lucy Wise

“I wanted to create an environment where people would learn from each other, and I haven’t had anyone go through the program that hasn’t said, ‘It was well worth it.’”
