Hairdressing as a career?
Hairdressing isn’t just about glamour. It requires hard work and dedication. The hours are long and sometimes unsociable, but the rewards more than make up for it. After all, how many jobs give you the chance to be creative, try out new things and meet new people every day?

Is it for me?
Some people have known since childhood that they wanted to be a Hairdresser. Others fall into it by accident. One thing for sure, most of those who try it are bitten by the bug. Not to mention the thrill of doing a job that allows you to be artistic and creative. On top of that there is the best feeling of all - the satisfaction that your work has helped brighten up someone’s day.

How do I get there?
UK Hairdressing is rightly regarded as the best in the world. Much of this is to do with the high standards of our qualifications. Without these qualifications you are unlikely to get far.

Even the top names in Hairdressing that grace our TV screens or the column inches of newspapers had to start somewhere. No specific qualifications are needed to become a Hairdresser, but good GCSEs in English, Science and Art are recommended. Colleges and employers also look for other qualities such as communication and people skills, stamina, patience, enthusiasm, and reliability.

The standard qualification for Hairdressing is NVQ/SVQ Level 3, which can be studied at most colleges. However, one of the most useful qualifications that can give you the all-round skills needed to be a success is the Modern Apprenticeship.

Allowing you to train for an NVQ/SVQ in Hairdressing, Modern Apprenticeships also allow you to work in a salon at the same time, thus earing a wage and gaining valuable work experience as early as possible.
