Please be aware that when working as a hairdressing apprentice, part of your daily jobs will be to clean and tidy the salon.

There will be some long periods of activity with little time to 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 hairdressing industry.
