Salon Ya Ya is an established salon that has been part of Nashville since 1996. We are Redken Elite, a Summit Salon, and a career oriented company. We are looking for licensed cosmetologists who are hardworking with a great attitude and a passion for the industry. If you are interested in joining our team please email us at  to set up an interview and shadow date. 




Salon Ya Ya is positioned as a “career salon company.” We hire only career-minded stylists with a passion for the industry beyond that of a hobbyist or day-job hairdresser. That doesn’t mean our stylists don’t know how to have fun! Our stylists are writers, hikers, comedians, musicians, artists, sports enthusiasts, runners, parents, chefs, and more, but the one thing they have in common is a whole-hearted devotion to the craft of hairdressing as a life-long career, and a desire to offer the guests of our salon complete satisfaction with any service they receive.

Our staff is in it for the long haul. We are building relationships with each other and our communities, as we build our business. Our growth is based primarily on the referrals of our happy salon guest family, and we see no end for the possibilities!

Coming to work at Salon Ya Ya has been the best career choice I have ever made. The structure set into place from the Summit Salon System along with constant education from Redken and Pureology artists are what gives Salon Ya Ya a strong foundation and separates us form every other salon in Nashville. I found my salon home and I inherited a family. I have 25+ Ya Ya sisters and brothers, we take care of each other and there is never a dull moment.
