Hairstylists who rent a booth at a salon are usually not contractors or employees if they are just leasing the space and the salon owner does not tell the hairstylist what services to provide and how to provide the services or collects the fees for the service.  They are just leasing property. In this case, the salon owner is a landlord. 

If the salon owner tells the hairstylist what services to provide and collects the money for the service then the hairstylist could be a contractor or in some states an employee.  Check with your state's labor laws to know exactly what the laws are.
