Requirements and prospects

Desired skills

Hairdressing is a fast moving, fashion orientated business, so you will need to be creative, enjoy meeting people and have loads of energy.

You don’t have to be the academic type and there are no set entry criteria for the Hairdressing Apprenticeship, although an average level of English and maths is important.

We are looking for Apprentices that are enthusiastic and motivated about training to be a hairdresser, together with the ability to take an active part in studying for your hairdressing qualification, as well as being prepared to work hard both in the hairdressing salon.

Personal qualities

  • Be well presented in all aspects including: clothing, hair and personal hygiene
  • Be practical and well organised
  • Be a good communicator with excellent social skills
  • Have attention to detail and cleanliness
  • Have a good sense of humour and amicable nature skills whether dealing face-to-face with clients or speaking on the telephone
  • Be willing to work flexible hours/days as agreed in the employment contract
  • Have a high degree of dexterity and coordination

Desired qualifications

You won't need qualifications to apply but you will need the motivation and commitment to want to become a hairdresser.

Future prospects

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. Hairdressing skills are also required in the theatre, film, TV, and magazine work.

Things to consider

The apprenticeship programme will take 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.
