Hairdressing is a rewarding career, ideal for creative, artistic, energetic people who love interacting with others. It’s an industry that technology can never replace and there will always be a demand for. There are so many different directions that this career can take you, and a good hairstylist will always have a choice of jobs and career options and will never be without work. There is always a shortage of hairdressers and a need for them!

For talented, hardworking and driven individuals the sky is the limit and this career can offer great financial rewards as well as high levels of job satisfaction. Hairdressers commonly state that they never work a day in their life and get up every morning to do what they love.

• You can work in a salon (anywhere in the country or the world! There is always a demand for good hairdressers, even at top international salons). Hairdressing is a skill that allows you to travel and work worldwide.

• You can become an educator or technician for a product brand, travelling, teaching and educating. Top educators travel worldwide and have incredible careers.

• You can own your own business whether large or small, running a thriving salon in your community and being an employer – a great move for those who are both creative and business-minded. Some of the most successful salon owners have grown their businesses to include multiple branches.
