If you're an employee, this is not legal. If you're an independent contractor (as is often the case with hair stylists), then it depends on the terms of your contract.

That there is no written contract doesn't mean there's no contract. Nor is the existence or non-existence of a written contract dispositive of the employee versus independent contractor relationship. You might google "employee independent contractor factors" to see what's relevant. If you still conclude that you're an employee, then your question has been answered. And, if you are an independent contractor and you have never agreed to this deduction, then you have a claim for the amounts deducted.

You may visit the Employment Law Center: Wages and Benefits and read Wage and Hour Laws as a good resource to learn more about your rights as an employee.
