Helping you find a career as a Hairdresser

Hairdressers cut, style and colour hair. They also offer advice to clients on the products and treatment routines that work best for their hair texture.

Hairdressers can work in big city centre salons or in small salons, spas, care homes and even on cruise ships. Some also travel to clients’ houses to offer their services. If you want to be a freelance Hairdresser, it is best to start building up a portfolio on social media – Instagram is the best platform for this.

What does a Hairdresser do?
A hairdresser shampoos and conditions, cuts and colours hair. A typical day for a hairdresser will be:

  • Keeping the salon clean

  • Shampooing and conditioning hair

  • Cutting hair to the clients’ preferences (they may show you a photo of a cut and style that they want)

  • Suggesting alternative cuts and styles that may work better with a client’s face shape

  • Colouring, perming and straightening hair

  • Greeting customers

  • Advising on hair and scalp problems

  • Keeping up to date with new trends

  • Making sure hair products are safe to use

  • Checking that clients are not allergic to the chemicals in hair products

  • Taking payments

Skills & interests required for a Hairdresser
Hairdressers need to be good with their hands and confident working with a variety of tools: from scissors and clippers to colouring products and heat lamps. You will need to understand your clients’ wishes and preferences and then put them into practice in a creative fashion. A good sense for current fashion trends and hairstyles is also likely to be important.

What hours does a Hairdresser typically do?
Hairdressers tend to work between 37 - 40 hours a week. Their working day usually lasts from 9am to 6pm, including Saturdays. Freelance hairdressers can choose their own hours and clients.
What environment is a Hairdresser based in?
A hair salon or client’s home.
How much does a Hairdresser travel?
Freelance hairdressers are expected to travel to the client’s home.
How much does a Hairdresser get paid?
A junior hairdresser may earn £14,000 per annum whilst someone with more experience can earn between £14,000 to £24,000 per annum.

Hairdressers can progress onto senior hair stylist earning an average salary of £21,024 per annum.

Alternatively, a hairdresser can progress onto salon manager. They earn an average of £25,157 per annum with more experienced workers earning up to £35,000 per annum.
What qualifications does a Hairdresser need?
There are no minimum qualifications needed for this role. Applicants can start work as trainee hairdressers with no qualifications and can learn on the job.

You can train to become a hairdresser at a college course.

A hairdressing apprenticeship is also an option. A Level 2 hairdressing apprentice is required to greet clients, assist qualified hairdressers in mixing colours, book appointments and keep the salon clean.

An apprentice hairdresser can then progress onto Level 3 (equivalent to A-Level) and so on.
