Career Options

Hairdresser

If you enjoy hairstyling and like meeting different people, this could be the perfect job for you. Hairdressers cut, colour and shape clients' hair to create the look they want.

You can train as a hairdresser either full-time or part-time at a college. You could also work as a trainee, where you would learn on the job and go to college on day release.

To become a hairdresser, you will need to have customer service and 'people' skills. You’ll need creativity and an awareness of fashion. You’ll also need a willingness to learn new techniques and methods.
