Hairdresser Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Hairdresser in Lymington:
"Salary."
If I had known how low the salary was for a trade that you work hard and long hours to become fully trained in over 2-3 years and now myself been in the career for 10 years with a lot of experience working abroad etc I still feel I am not rewarded for my hard work to get there, which involves you being on your feet all day and is mentally and physically tiring with a lot of responsibility I would most definitely have chosen a different career, the only thing that it has helped me become more socially aware and given me customer relation skills for the future but as a job to provide financial security I would not recommend.

Hairdresser in Lincoln:
You have to be confident and be able to talk to strangers.

Hairdresser in Pam:
"crap money"
Rubbish money. Hairdressers should be paid more.
