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.

Hairdresser Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Hairdresser?

Hairdresser in Kingston:
"I love job."
Pros: Creativity, changing peoples looks and making them feel better about themself. Talking and getting to know people.
Cons: Terrible pay, working on your feet all day and working hard for no reward.

Hairdresser in Birmingham:
"Pay is bad."
Make sure you get minimum wage at least. The big companies will rip you off.

Hairdresser in Chippenham:
"Bad pay."
Make sure you get fair pay for a skilled job.

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.
