Throughout your level 2 apprenticeship you will learn the basics of hairdressing and work with clients to build your confidence and communication skills.

You will undertake many duties which will include meeting and greeting clients, shampooing and removing colour, conditioning, drying and styling hair. With a combination of off-the-job training and on-site support within the workplace, you will learn many new hairdressing skills which you will be able to put into practice within the salon. This will support you to gain confidence to use your imagination and new skills to create different hairdressing styles.

The successful apprentice will learn the technique of scalp massages when washing clients hair in preparation for the stylists. You will also learn how to interact with clients throughout this process to meet the individual requirements of clients.

You will learn many new skills including being able to colour, set and style hair practising on models throughout your training. Salons are becoming more reliant on technology to communicate with their clients, and to promote their salon services, styling team and latest offers, you will develop your skills to use social networks in a safe and professional way.

Throughout each day you will assist in keeping the salon clean and tidy, following all company processes and procedures, including health and safety in the workplace and making sure that all the equipment used is put back in its rightful place. This will help the salon run more smoothly and efficiently.
