Things to consider

Hairdressing is not always glamourous and involves long periods of sustained physical exertion and exposure to some chemicals that require personal protective equipment to be worn. There will be long periods where you will be standing continuously without rest. Applicants must have a positive cheerful outlook and a willingness to give that little extra to drive themselves forward to succeed in their career. You must be customer focussed, trustworthy, companionate, reliable and willing to work as a team member capable of putting other people first.
