JCPenney Adds Volume to its Salon Business with Plans to Hire 6500 Stylists

Flexible scheduling, high commissions among perks of becoming a JCPenney salon stylist.

As JCPenney continues to build on the success of its beauty offering, the retailer will be hiring 6500 salon stylists across the country. With over 750 locations, JCPenney boasts one of the largest salon businesses in the country. As a salon stylist, flexible scheduling, discretionary pricing for senior and master stylists, paid professional training, health benefits for full-time stylists, paid time off, 401K eligibility as well as some of the highest commissions of any salon chain are just some of the great perks of working for JCPenney.

Each salon provides a wide variety of services, including haircuts, color, signature blowouts, hair treatments, extensions and natural styling. Customers can also shop the latest salon products, tools and accessories from Matrix, Paul Mitchell, CHI, Redken, Mizani and more.

Since JCPenney launched an exclusive partnership with the fashion and beauty experts at InStyle in 2015, numerous JCPenney salon locations across the country have undergone a dynamic reinvention, transforming into The Salon by InStyle. This cutting-edge salon experience offers an updated environment with new graphics, trend photography, accent lighting, modern fixtures and sleek furniture.

JCPenney is one of the only retailers that offers salon, beauty – with Sephora inside JCPenney – and fashion all in one store, giving customers a unique shopping experience at an exceptional value. Providing customers with a compelling head-to-toe beauty solution is an important differentiator and growth strategy for the Company, with salon offering an in-store experience that simply cannot be replicated online.
