Our initial team will consist of the owner and 10 employees. On the shop floor, there will be six barbers, one nail specialist, one shoe shine person and one receptionist. Initially there will be one full time combination aesthetician/massage therapist. As our client base grows we will add additional barbers, which then will be working two shifts per day per station. We expect to have 12 employees by the end of the first year and 14 employees in years two and three.
