Your heart is set on hairdressing, or perhaps you’re keen to begin earning money and you just want to start working as soon as possible!
Hairdressing is a fast-paced industry and trends are constantly changing. Professionals must not only look the part, they have to stay ahead of what’s fashionable and advise clients. Remember, every time a hairdresser styles a customer, they’re creating an “advert” for how good they are at their job. Word of mouth and recommendations is critical in developing a regular client base.
When you’re qualified, you’ll be rushed off your feet!
It’s common knowledge how hard hairdressers work. They’re on their feet all day, there is a constant stream of customers, they need to keep on top of bookings, recommend styles, sell products, remember customers at a personal level and keep abreast of trends – all this as well as making sure the salon is clean and tidy!
Enjoy your training. It’s hugely important and once you’re stood behind your first client with a pair of scissors you need to feel completely confident in your ability to make them look their best.
