We’re a kid’s salon unlike any other. Over-the-top service is the heartbeat of Sit Still; we are obsessed with our kiddo clients AND their parents. We are laser-focused on building salons that are cool yet warm, kid-friendly but not anti-adult. Wowing our clients with every visit is our promise, and we deliver.
Details matter. At Sit Still it’s more than just a haircut in a custom-made race car (although we’ve got those, and they’re pretty rad). From playlists to paint colors, we’ve considered everything. We’re talking top-of-the-line hair products to the coolest toys, t-shirts and gifts, to the most spirited and attentive staff — so that walking into a Sit Still is an experience unlike any other.
When a family leaves Sit Still with a stylish cut, something fun from our shop and an experience they talk about with their friends—they are realizing our vision.
And maybe yours, too?
We’re a unique niche within the beauty industry. Most salons rent out chairs — which means stylists are responsible for building their own business. At Sit Still, stylists are part of the team. This means they’re employees of Sit Still salons, with guaranteed hours (plus tips and commission on product sales), a built-in clientele from day one, a flexible schedule, and the opportunity to hone their craft without having to worry about the business side of things. We are committed to a collaborative relationship with our stylists, which is very refreshing in this industry. It’s a pretty straightforward formula: Happy stylists equal top notch haircuts!
In addition to being part of a brand disrupting an industry, joining Sit Still means you have access to franchise veterans, and the teams they’ve appointed, ensuring consistency and ease throughout the process. Sit Still offers support to our franchising partners every step of the way — through pre-opening and beyond, including:
Additionally, Sit Still is dedicated to ongoing research and development, which is passed directly to each franchise partner. Our training and support will evolve as we learn and grow, but our commitment to educating our owners and their teams on the “why’s” and the “how’s” starts on day one.
Partners that know their market inside and out
We want to work with high-quality franchise partners that we know are going to crush it in their market. This means the franchisee needs to know the right people and the right places to bring Sit Still to life in their community.
An appreciation for this unique opportunity
Franchise partners that are excited about the potential of the Sit Still salon/retail hybrid business — and for the opportunity to inject some much-needed energy in the kids’ salon market. We are looking for people who understand the culture of Sit Still and how it is impacting the salon industry.
Strong leadership skills
We’re looking for partners with a penchant for recruiting THE BEST teams. Our owners are excited by the opportunity to empower people to take the Sit Still model and thrive, allowing owners to remain big-picture and focused on growth.
It’s no secret: the success of a salon is directly tied to the client experience. We’re looking for magnetic personalities who can recruit the right people. Our ideal franchisees are skilled at managing client relationships (and employee satisfaction, too).
Because we’re interested in a multi-salon development approach, candidates need to demonstrate they have the necessary capital to build a marketplace.
A glass half-full attitude
One of Sit Still’s core values is abundance. We believe there is more than enough to go around. More breeds more, right? We’re looking for franchise partners who align with this mindset, as it influences everything we do in business and in life. If you come interview with us in Portland, pack a smile!
