There are a couple of main ways that somebody can enter the profession. Many people will choose to enrol at college. Students who study hairdressing at college will normally also be an apprentice at a hairdressing salon. A student will normally work at the salon for four days of the week and will study for another day at college. The work at college will normally be theory work and will be how students gain their qualifications. As an apprentice you will likely perform small tasks that may involve, sweeping the floor, cleaning windows, wash basins and hairdressing equipment. You may also be asked to make teas and coffee, wash customers hair, blow dry hair. Once you have had a little more experience then you will be able to cut hair and also dye it.
A hairdressing apprenticeship will normally take about 2-3 years to complete and after this you will be fully qualified and be able to work as a hairdresser in salons.
With everything there is almost always a good version and a bad version. The good version will obviously normally cost you more money than the poorer version. Most people if they had a choice would normally go for the better and more expensive version, purely because they are aware they are going to receive higher quality and whatever it is will also probably last much longer.
This is no different when it comes to hairdressing scissors and equipment. For hairdressers who really want to do well in their career they will naturally want to have a pair of scissors and all the equipment that is going to give them the best possible results. There are some famous brands of scissors that are popular amongst hairdressers because they are known for their good quality and long lasting properties.
These scissors can range from about £200 – £700. This might seem a lot but if you really want to impress then you will understand the need for equipment that is able to do this.
