Susan Wos

Hey there!

I've worked in various capacities within the salon industry for over 27 years. From Senior Hair Stylist, Salon Owner & Manager, to Independent Stylist & Consultant—my personal experiences, challenges and successes have fueled my passion for revolutionizing employment and booth rental opportunities for Salons, Spas, Barbershops and other beauty industry businesses.


Seeing a glaring gap in the market for effective, independent hiring resources, I became the first and only headhunter and recruiter in this industry, successfully matching hundreds of owners to licensed professionals in Kansas City with Salonspa Connection.


My vast network of connections has given me detailed insight into what works and what doesn't—-along with what defines the workplace wants, needs and preferences of the industry.

Eventually, through a series of trial and error, Enlightened Hire was born to pave the way for smart, easy and affordable salon hiring and booth rental matching.

Our goal is to provide salon, spa, and barber industry owners and applicants with insight that opens doors of opportunity that would not otherwise be available to them.
