Things to consider

Hairdressing is not a job – it is a vocation. You need to be prepared to work hard and deliver first class customer service even when you may not be feeling at your best. You will be on your feet all day and dealing with clients from all walks of life; you can’t be expected to like every client but you will need to make every single one feel they are special. You will need to be flexible because when the salon gets busy everyone needs to help out so that the salon runs smoothly and that could mean bringing forward or pushing back your break. Earnings are not brilliant at the start although tips from satisfied clients will help. Once you start building your own clientele you will earn commission on what you contribute to the salon’s takings. The busiest stylists, earn the most. Working in a salon is about working as a team, all driven by the same ambition to make every client’s visit better than expected, to maintain the loyalty of existing clients and to attract new clients.
