Job Description for Hairdresser

Hairdressers generally work in salons where they cut, style and dye clients' hair. Salons vary by location and clientele: They range from franchised national chain locations that focus on fairly standard hair cutting and care, to individual studios known for the presence of a well-known hair professional. In some cases, hairdressers may travel to work with their clients, especially when they offer up-dos and hairstyling for special events such as weddings.
