    Now I dont know ANYTHING about this industry really, so I hoped somebody on here could give me a hand ;D...

    My boyfriend has worked at a salon for a few years now (yeees, he's straight), and he's at the point where he can either choose to continue at the salon as a hairdresser for about 9 more months before getting a role as a manager... OR he got a place at a Toni & Guy salon where he can be a hairdresser there. Thing is, it means the first 3 months at Toni he doesnt get paid, and when he does, its with MUCH less than he's making now. Its going to take a couple years training at Toni before he can start making the big bucks...

    At the end of it all, he wants to have his own salon. Is it really a good idea to follow through with this Toni & Guy thing? Or has he got a pretty good chance at getting where he wants to be continuing where he is now...?

    Any advice would be graaaand
