The Atarashii Apprentice Program capitalizes on innovation, we believe the work we do empowers everyone to be their best self, and our legacy lives in the way that we give back to the community.


The Atarashii Apprentice Program empowers the beauty industry through life long education and philanthropy.  We believe it is our responsibility to evolve hair and beauty education, challenging the status quo, through continual commitment to creating rich, best in class, educational experiences using the latest technology and innovations.


Atarashii Apprentice Program was launched through a grass roots effort in the backroom of a salon & spa just north of Seattle, WA. We wanted to create a path for the self directed motivated adult learner.

The three founding co owners of the Salon &  Spa found that they were constantly hiring and spending a minimum of a year or more training the new hires just to find out that it was all a futile effort.There had to be a better way. Apprenticeship afforded the opportunity to hire for personality, team culture fit and drive.


As an equal opportunity employer (EEO), we stay true to our mission by ensuring that our place can be anyone’s place. Our partner salons, barber shops and spas are unique, multicultural and brimming with diversity and we believe our team members should be too.  Striving for a team that represents the diverse communities and the guests we serve makes us better! 

Our day-to-day goal is to treat our colleagues with respect by listening to differing viewpoints, opinions, thoughts and ideas and embracing our differences. We strive to foster a culture of non-discrimination across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience. Diversity, equality and inclusion are at the core of who we are and it drives us forward everyday. 

As we say, “Be yourself because we like it that way!”
