You won't need qualifications to apply but you will need the motivation and commitment to want to become a hairdresser or barber.
You don’t have to be the academic type and there are no set entry criteria for the Hairdressing Apprenticeship.
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.
Things to consider
The apprenticeship programme will take up to 15 - 18 months to complete. During this time you will be expected to attend the academy one day a week and three to four days a week in the salon - you earn while you learn. It is often a fast-paced environment. You may be expected to work Saturdays.
You must be willing to work flexible hours/days as agreed in the employment contract.
About the employer
Our Tunbridge Wells hairdressers in Kent is a real gem. Located in the heart of the picturesque royal town, we think our salon has just as much to offer you as the many gardens, castles and historic houses you’ll find in the area, if not a little more. That’s because the time you spend at our hair salon is all about you. We’ll treat you to a relaxing head massage in our tranquil spa, before you sit back and enjoy a lovely cup of tea (or coffee, or even a cold beverage if you fancy!).
As a popular destination for spa retreats, we believe that the time spent with your hairdresser should be a pampering, spirit-lifting experience. We understand what it means to you to have a really great hair day. For us, the key to your hair happiness is in the bond formed between your hair stylist and you. Your stylist will really take the time to get to know you, to listen to your needs and understand your lifestyle and earn your trust, so when you leave the salon, you glow with an inner confidence only truly gorgeous hair can bestow, or maybe a day spent in a spa. Either way, we’ve got it covered.
The condition of your hair is of utmost importance to us, because it’s our job to ensure that you feel great about the look and feel of your hair every day. If your hair is in need of a bit of love and attention, we’ll be on hand to blend made-to-measure treatments tailored to you, be it to replenish lost moisture, nourish or repair damaged ends. We’ll have you and your hair right as rain in no time.
We only stock the products we use in salon and that we’d choose for our own hair (Kérastase, Moroccan Oil, L’Oréal Professional, ghd and Redken), so you can be assured that if your hairdresser recommends a product, they believe it’s the right one for you.
