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.

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.

Qualifications required

  • 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 up to 12 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.

About the employer

Our expertly trained stylists consult each client, assess their hair’s health, and provide a recommended style. Your consultation starts by asking you what you are looking for—do you want a trim, more volume, or maybe a completely new look? Our hair stylists listen to your needs and suggest options that will work well with your hair type and hair care routine.
