Who We Are & What We Do

The Goal: First impressions are made in the first 7 seconds... Our goal is to keep our clients in the interview until the 8th second.


Snips of Success provides professional pre-interview grooming services to disadvantaged job-seekers. We do this by partnering with job-placement programs to arrange services for their clients with our volunteer team of SOS-approved licensed beauty industry professionals.

How We Work




SOS partners with job placement programs to identify disadvantaged clients that are ready to start interviewing! 

Provide Licensed Professionals

At the same time, we work to enroll professional, licensed barbers, cosmetologists, estheticians, nail techs and makeup artists that will provide the professional services for those clients. 




When a client has an interview, SOS connects the client with a licensed professional that can handle the job. Clients are then serviced right in the professional’s salon or barbershop.



SOS follows up with the client, the professional, and the job-placement program. We want to know how the services affected the client's confidence and self-esteem going into the interview and whether or not the client landed the job.

Why Grooming?

The Proof is in the Statistics

Grooming Tells Employers About Critical Things Such As: Attitude, Initiative, Level of Autonomy, Suitability for the Position, and Growth Potential. 



Growth Potential

"Well-groomed professionals experience better professional growth."




91% of employers say, "dress and grooming reflects an applicant’s attitude towards the company." 




95% of employers believe, "a job seekers personal appearance affects the applicants suitability."
