There are 4 levels of stylist in the Gary Rom group. When apprentices complete their training, they are employed on the salon floor. As they build clientele, and become more skilled at the art of hairstyling, they build a more regular client base, that request their services. Once this happens, they are moved up a level. This is a natural progression to further their careers. Once they reach the top level of Artistic Director, they are ready to manage a salon, or open a franchise.
