Have a good sense of humour and amicable nature

Desired qualifications
You won’t need qualifications to apply but you will need the motivation and commitment to want to become a hairdresser or barber
You don’t have to be the academic type and there are no set entry criteria for the Hairdressing Apprenticeship
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.
Things to consider
The apprenticeship programme will take up to 15 – 18 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. It is often a fast paced environment. You may be expected to work Saturdays.
