Requirements and prospects

Desired skills

Hairdressing is a fast moving, fashion orientated business, so you will need to be creative, enjoy meeting people and have loads of energy.

You don’t have to be the academic type and there are no set entry criteria for the Hairdressing Apprenticeship.

Personal qualities

You would also need to: 

  • Be well presented in all aspects including: clothing, hair and personal hygiene.
  • Be practical and well organised
  • Be a good communicator with excellent social skills.
  • Have attention to detail and cleanliness. 
  • Have a good sense of humour and amicable nature skills whether dealing face to face with clients or speaking on the telephone.
  • Be willing to work flexible hours/days as agreed in the employment contract.
  • Have a high degree of dexterity and coordination.

Qualifications required

You won't need qualifications to apply but you will need the motivation and commitment to want to become a fully qualified hairdresser.

Future prospects

Many apprentices are given jobs with the employers they trained with as Junior stylists, others go onto further studies. Apprentices are often fast-tracked by their employers for promotion to more senior positions. Hairdressing skills are also required in the theatre, film, TV and magazine work.

Things to consider

Please remember that Hairdressing Salons are usually open everyday throughout the week so you may be required to work a Saturday or Sunday. The Apprenticeship National Minimum Wage (ANMW): From April 2017 the ANMW was set at £3.50 per hour. This applies to 16-18 year old apprentices and those aged 19 and over in the first year of their Apprenticeship. For all other apprentices the National Minimum wage appropriate to their age applies. The Minimum Wage for Apprentices applies to time spent on the job plus time spent training.
