  • Be outgoing
  • Be efficient

On completion of your level 3 you will be qualified to become a state registered hairdresser with The Hairdressing Council and will be able to work in a role as a senior stylist. 

Things to consider

So, you want to work as a hairdresser but don’t have any experience? Then the first thing you need to do is get some! If you are still at school, most salons will be happy to hire you on as a junior for weekend, evening or holiday cover help. However, if you want to train as an apprentice, then consider a hairdressing apprenticeship, particularly if you already have some experience in this area and have decided it is the career path for you.

A hairdressing apprenticeship is the most specialised way to start your training. To begin, you must be at least 16 years of age, be eligible to work in the UK, and not be in full-time studies. Although academic qualifications are needed, having personal attributes such as attention to detail, great people skills and an understanding and sense of style are all highly valued. Plus, you also need to be employable, presentable and professional.
