About the employer

Hairdressing is a great career! Quite apart from the brilliant, creative people you work with and the interesting clients you meet, it's one of only a few professions where your career destiny really is in your own hands. Those celebrity hairdressers you see on TV, or credited in your favourite magazines, all began as juniors, learning their trade from the bottom up. The same goes for salon owners. So how do you begin? As a rule, our school-leavers begin with work-based training, for a two-year Apprenticeship to NVQ Level 2 in Hairdressing, moving up to an Advanced Apprenticeship at NVQ Level 3. Once you're trained with Faces you'll earn a good salary that reflects the high level of responsibility you will have in maintaining the Team's high standards. You can progress to an Advanced Stylist, building your own clientele or opt for a career in management or training.
