Becoming a hair stylist is a popular career option for many people. It allows you to be highly creative, meet lots of people and be sociable in your work, as well as the fact there will always be a job for you because hairdressers are always needed.
If you would like to become a stylist, it is a good idea to get some work experience. You will probably start off shampooing people’s hair and help out with salon admin, perhaps sweeping up hair or answering the phone to book appointments.
You can take a college course to train as a stylist, which is one of the most popular ways of doing it. You can also train as an apprentice in a hair salon, which may be a little more tricky to land as you will have to be chosen by the salon. Whichever method you choose, you will learn life-changing skills and can go on to be an excellent stylist.
