Answers to some of our frequently asked questions in relation to bookings, getting in touch and COVID March 2022

2nd or 3rd Year Apprentices

We are super excited to be now hiring 2nd and 3rd-year apprentices to join our amazing team at our beautiful Eden Hair Energy salon in Dickson. We are looking for the right person who would like to be part of something we feel is very special. 

Are you interested in taking the next step in your career? 

We do everything we can to support and provide opportunities for our emerging stylists to grow and step onto the floor. We have an abundance of beautiful clients who would love to meet you.

What we are looking for: 

  • Positive and enthusiastic long term team members who are interested in being part of our exciting future.
  • Those with the intention to stay 2-3 years post apprenticeship completion (or better yet – longer)
  • A team player who has a happy can-do attitude

What’s in it for you:

  • Above award base wages and access to our incentive structure at any stage of your training.
  • Generous commission/bonus structure for weekly and monthly targets.
  • Opportunities to learn and grow – external educators (when travelling permits), as well as in-salon training. You will be trained in hair extensions right away!
  • A diverse team and clientele.
  • A large existing clientele to work with – no need to bring your own!
  • Advertising via our social media channels, website, print and more.
  • Support from our senior, reception and apprentice teams.
  • Continuous opportunities to provide feedback.
  • Clear expectations and guidelines are outlined in salon documents and your employment contract.
  • Have all your lunch breaks scheduled and support provided to facilitate this – every day.
  • Access to our employee benefits program which includes:
    • Lunch is provided on Saturdays.
    • Option of membership to Team Fitness (local Dickson gym).
    • Consultation with a dietician/nutritionist once a year.
    • Optional flu shots each year.
    • Access to two counselling sessions each year at DIPAC and Associates.
    • Free vitamins and immune-boosting supplements.
    • Additional benefits are added throughout the year, such as information sessions from physiotherapists about injury prevention to avoid workplace injury and coaching sessions to help develop techniques such as creating boundaries when working closely with people on a daily basis.
    • Receive free hair colour and cut services every 6 – 8 weeks (extensions at cost price + 15%).

We are open late 3 nights a week: Tuesday to Thursday 10:00 am – 8:00 pm as well as Friday 9:00 am – 6:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am- 3:00 pm. This means we can be flexible with your work hours, however, some evening and weekend work will be required as these are our busiest times.

If this sounds like a great fit for you, please email your cover letter and resume to info@edenhairenergy.com.au. We would love to meet you!

Can I make an appointment?

Since August 2021 our online booking has been disabled. This is because we are now operating with a much smaller team and as a result are still experiencing limited appointment availability.

You can however make a booking by emailing info@edenhairenergy.com.au (preferred) or calling us on 6262 8948 – our reception hours are 9:00 – 5:30 weekdays and Saturday 9:30 – 3:30.

We hope to turn online booking back on as soon as possible.

While we may not be able to make a booking until further in the future than what you’d like, we are experiencing cancellations daily now due to people being impacted by COVID. We have a cancellation list which we update every day, so it is worth being on the list as we are likely to be able to get you in sooner than your appointment if you wish.

Why haven’t I been able to get through to you on the phone?

Due to the forced closure for over 9 weeks between August and October 2021, we have just one person dedicated to our phones for both Eden and Canberra Hair Extensions. The phone has been ringing hot and we are often unable to take all phone calls. If our receptionist is away from the desk our stylists generally cannot take calls as they are booked back-to-back with clients. If you can’t get through on the phone, email is best. Please email all enquiries to info@edenhairenergy.com.au.

Has Canberra Hair Extensions moved?

As of October 2021, we have closed our Badham Street location and moved Canberra Hair Extensions to our DKSN salon – g2/19 Challis Street Dickson. You can visit Eden Hair Energy and Canberra Hair Extensions to find a huge range of clip in and permanent hair extension products.

What is the best way to know if there is a cancellation?

If you haven’t been able to get a booking at the time you’d like, the best thing to do is be on our cancellation list. If something pops up at a time you’ve requested we will be in touch as soon as possible – please note if we leave a voicemail or email we will not hold the appointment so if you can get back to us or even better take our call we will have a much better chance of getting you in.

When we have cancellations on the same day as the appointment we will both contact those on our cancellation list and advertise it on our Instagram stories – @edenhairenergy and @canberrahairextensions.

If you want an appointment short notice it is always worth checking in to see if we have had a cancellation – you just never know. Worst case we will find an alternative time for you or add you to our cancellation list

How far in advance should I book?

Many of our regulars book 6 – 12 months of appointments in advance – hence our limited availability coming out of lockdown. If you would like to book in for 2022 please let us know and we can arrange a time for you.
As always, afternoon/evening and weekend appointments are high in demand, so if you would like to secure your spot do get in touch.
Appointments booked far in advance may be subject to change as our team may wish to take holidays or their roster may change, however our highest priority is always to those guests who have committed to us long term so we will always find an alternative appointment at a suitable time if changes are required.

How are you managing COVID-19 in your salon?

At Eden Hair Energy and Canberra Hair Extensions we always have the interest of you, our team and the community at heart. We operate with strict hygiene measures in place as well as following all ACT and Commonwealth Government guidelines and recommendations.
While it is not mandatory in the ACT to be vaccinated to visit a business or return to the workplace, we are proud to say that our whole team are fully vaccinated.
If you have been a close contact to anyone who has COVID-19, are showing any symptoms or feel you may be unwell please let us know as soon as possible to rearrange your appointment – again the best way to reach us is by email.
If you have any questions or concerns about our response to COVID-19 or have any special requirements please let us know.
