With over 600 locations and many benefits such as competitive pay plans, flexible schedules, ongoing education, and medical benefits, they are ready for you to join their team (some benefits applicable only for master stylists and eligible JCPenney Salon associates). Don’t take it from us! Volume Up by The Tease was joined this week by JCPenney Salon  master stylist, Dariela Montaño

Dariela has  7 years of experience as a hairstylist and 5 years of working for JCPenney. She specializes in all types of hair coloring, treatments and haircuts with the goal of upholding the integrity of the hair.  We dive into all the specifics with her from her interview, climbing up the ladder to master stylist and even what her go-to JCPenney Salon product is. This is an interview you do not want to miss. 

Even if you already have your salon home, listen to this fun interview. For our Spanish-speaking listeners, our host, Jeffrey Lunnen, and Dariela did all the quick takes in  Spanish. This episode has something for everyone!

“Just follow your heart. I think being a hairstylist and going into cosmo school is more into passion. If you have passion for the topic or whatever you decide to do in life, it’s gonna work out.”

“Then they gave me the promotion to senior, and I was like ‘What’s this’. And they were like ‘Oh, it’s like the next level. Your prices are going to go a little bit up. You have more flexibility.’ My eyes just went like ‘what? Like this is not over? There’s more?’”

“You never stop learning!”

“I love the brands. I’m a fan of JCPenney brands. I love JCPenney brands. I’m always talking with the manager, ‘Thank God we have really, really good products to offer to the clients’.”
