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.

About the employer

The boutique style salon was set up in 2012 by Steven Bishop and Laurent Merveilleux, two established London stylists who had moved to Bideford to offer Devon customers a friendly independent creative outlet.

The whole team have many years' experience in hairdressing, with careers that had seen them working with some of the top names in the industry, managing salons across the UK and abroad and gathering A-list celebrity clients along the way.
