Salon Independent Contractor Agreement Template

Updated November 14, 2023

A salon independent contractor agreement establishes a binding arrangement between a hair stylist or barber and a salon company. In most cases, the hair stylist acts as an independent contractor that is responsible for obtaining their own clients and customers. Therefore, the salon company will generally provide the booth, most of the equipment, and training in exchange for a percentage (%) of the hair stylist’s sales.

Step 1 – Each Party Entering This Agreement Requires A Defined Role

The opening statement to this contract will seek a definition to the Business and the Contractor. Several blank areas have been peppered throughout this statement. Each of these spaces will require a separate piece of information.

The Date this Contract goes into Effect or becomes active will be the first piece of information required by this statement. It may be recorded as a Month Name, Two-Digit Calendar Day, and Two-Digit Calendar Year using the first two blank spaces. The next area, preceding the label “Contractor,” is reserved for the Name of the Stylist, Barber, or Contractor the Business will enter a working arrangement with. Make sure this Name is reported (First Name, Middle Name, and Last Name) as it appears on the Contractor’s Identification Papers (i.e. Driver’s License) or with Tax Entities. The Name and Address of the Business (i.e. Salon, Barbershop, etc.) engaging in this Contractor Agreement should be furnished to this paragraph utilizing the next four spaces. Begin by finding the phrase “With A Mailing Address Of” then, record the Legal Name of the Business/Company on the blank line that precedes it. Then, supply the Business or Company’s Mailing Address, City, and State to the blank lines after this phrase.

Step 2 – Set The Service Terms Required By This Agreement

The “Services Provided” article of this paperwork will supply some basic terminology to protect the Business/Company’s privacy and interests (i.e. Trade Secrets). However, this will require some information supplied so that it can be applied correctly. Use the first two empty lines of this area to define the first Calendar Date of the Contractor’s Employment. The last three blank spaces in the “II. Services Provided” statement shall need the Street Address, City, and State where the Contractor will physically work when employed with this Business/Company. The last area requiring attention will be the paragraph bearing the label “A.) Non-Compete.” The blank space between the term “For A Period Of” and the word “Years” should have the number of years when the Contractor must avoid behaving in the defined manner with competing Businesses after the Termination of this working relationship.

Step 3 – Define The Business’ Rent Expectations And The Contractor’s Compensation Requirements

In some cases, The Barber Shop or Salon may require Rent of the Contractor. The next section “III. Rent” shall focus on this provision. Three checkbox statements have been presented here. Mark the checkbox statement that best defines the terms that should be applied to this document.

If the Contractor must pay the Salon or Barbershop rent then mark the first checkbox statement, then enter the Rent Payment Amount on the blank space following the Dollar Sign. This will require you locate the three checkboxes in this choice then mark the correct checkbox to indicate if this Rent amount is due “Daily,” “Weekly,” or “Monthly.” If the Contractor does not have to pay a rent amount for “Chairs, Salon Booths, Or Any Other Equipment Of The Company” then mark the checkbox statement labeled “Shall Not Be Liable For Rent.” In “IV. Compensation” the matter of Pay will be discussed, record the Percent of the Income Generated by the Contractor to the Business that will be paid to the Contractor by the Business. Then, mark the appropriate checkbox in this statement (“Daily,” “Weekly,” “Monthly,” or “Other”) to solidify when the Business will pay this amount to the Contractor. Note: If choosing “Other,” make sure to enter the applicable time-frame on the blank space provided (i.e. “Bi-Weekly”).

Step 4 – Any Provisions That Should Apply To This Contract Must Be Defined Before Execution

If any terms or conditions have been discussed and agreed to by both parties that have not been discussed in this paperwork, they must be documented and included in this document by the time of signing. You may use Article “X. Additional Terms And Conditions” to report any such additional agreements between the Business/Company and the Contractor. If more space is required, you can provide a full detail of any such applicable provisions on a separate document, label it, then attach it to this one.

Step 5 – This Document Only Goes Into Effect Upon The Signature Of Each Party

The final area that must be tended to can only be satisfied by an Authorized Representative of the Company and the Contractor entering this agreement. Before these parties formally enter this contract, record the State whose laws will govern and enforce this Agreement on the blank space presented in “IX. Governing Law.” Locate the heading “Company” at the end of this document. Here, an Authorized Representative of the Company must sign his or her Name on the “Company Representative’s Signature” line then record the current Date when he or she supplied this signature on the blank line immediately following the Signature. The Company’s Signature Representative must Print his or her Name and the Title he or she holds with the Company on the next two lines (“Print Name” and “Title”).  The Contractor entering this agreement should sign his or her Name on the “Contractor’s Signature” line under the “Contractor” heading. The Date he or she signed this line should be furnished on the line labeled “Date.”Finally, the Contractor should supply his or her Printed Name on the last blank space in this section.
