One of the best ways to become a hairdresser is to take part in a hairdressing apprenticeship.
A hairdressing apprenticeship is a method of training to become a hairdresser while working for an employer or hair salon.
Nearly all your learning will be carried out in a working environment. As a hairdressers apprentice you will get to learn the basics of haircutting/barbering and running a salon. For example you will learn how to book appointments and ensure customer satisfaction, while also learning the basics of hairdressing such as styling, drying and colouring.
The time taken can vary, but generally it will take between 1 and 5 years to complete your apprenticeship.
The advantage of doing an apprenticeship over a college based course is that you can get paid while you learn your trade. Some people also feel more comfortable learning in a working environment rather than a more formal education setting.
Apprentices are always in demand. You can either contact your local hairdressers and enquire or complete the form at the top of the page.
