Things to consider

Applicants must have a realistic idea of what it is like to work as an apprentice in the hair industry and must be willing to help out with the less glamorous tasks such as cleaning.

There will be some long periods of activity with little rest.

Applicants also need to ensure that they are willing to work Saturdays and at least one late evening before applying for the position as this is a requirement when working in the hair industry.

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
