Why choose hairdressing?

Hairdressers cut, style and colour hair to create the look their clients want. You can work in different areas of the profession from everyday cut, colour and styling to bridal hair, fashion, production sets for photography shoots, or film, television and theatre.

You can be creative and change people's lives by influencing the way they look and feel. Hairdressing is an ideal career if you like meeting new people and provides great opportunities to work self-employed and run your own business. 

The industry is steeped in positivity, so we are looking for applicants who are friendly, outgoing and naturally passionate about health and beauty issues, looks and trends. One of the most essential skills that all budding hair and beauty students should have is confidence in meeting new people and a welcoming personality to make customers feel relaxed.

There are over 43,000 hair and beauty businesses in the UK, with a massive growth of 45% in the number of hairdressing, barbering and beauty business over the past 5 years (NHBF, 2019 Industry Statistics).
