Salon Matchmakers Press Release

LOS ANGELES, June 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Beauty industry experts and siblings Elan and Eden Sassoon proudly launch Salon Matchmakers, a free service connecting salon and spa owners with top talent, while also providing job seekers with a focused, streamlined platform for finding a job in the beauty industry.

SalonMatchmakers.com was created in response to an ongoing industry need: recruiting and retention. Owners of salons and spas continually expend significant resources to find available talent that is right for their individual business, helping to elevate their services as well as reducing costs for the owner by increasing retention.

"We believe this site offers a unique and mutually beneficial opportunity for both job seekers and recruiting salons to find each other in a way that is simple, efficient and professional," said founder Elan Sassoon, a salon developer, product creator and son of legendary beauty icon, Vidal Sassoon.

SalonMatchmakers.com will help to unify
a fragmented industry by providing
a first-of-its-kind, broad-range, visually-rich job search platform.

Job seekers waste countless hours searching online lists, boards and job sites for open positions in salons and spas, often finding the information outdated or incomplete, while salons and spas are regularly challenged with having to find new talent. Posting in various existing platforms can be both expensive and time consuming. Salon Matchmakers is removing the frustration and streamlining the process by providing a premier salon and spa hiring solution for the industry free of charge.

"There are many job boards and employment listings that industry professionals have used in the past," said Sassoon. "But SalonMatchmakers.com is the first and only site that adds a visual connection: spa and salon owners can assess the depth of value in available talent through photos or video and prospective employees can visually evaluate participating salons and spas to find their perfect match."

Currently, the platform is only available in the U.S.; however the platform will ultimately be available globally.

"We will make Salon Matchmakers the number 1 job site for the industry, where job seekers, including beauty school students, will find their best career opportunities and salons will find their best candidates," said founder Eden Sassoon, principal driver of Salon Matchmakers' public relations and marketing team, salon owner, and daughter of the legendary beauty icon, Vidal Sassoon.

In addition to the Sassoons, the concept and site was developed by entrepreneurs Michelle Leffler (Chief Operating Officer), Erin Short(Director of Program Development), and Richard Herbert (Chief Financial Officer).
