Job Description

Duties will include general upkeep of the salon, shampooing, assisting stylists, greeting and preparing clients and promoting services and products. Some reception work may also be required. As your skills develop you will be given more responsibility.


  • Greeting clients and visitors to the salon, as well as handling enquiries by telephone
  • Playing a key part in preparing clients for services, including refreshments, magazines, gowning and general comfort
  • Ensuring every client is happy, comfortable and informed throughout their visit
  • Listening to the needs of clients and informing colleagues of any relevant information
  • Engaging in meaningful and relevant conversation with clients
  • Keeping up to date with fashions and trends in the hairdressing industry
  • Following all health and safety procedures
  • Wearing the required personal protective equipment
  • Assisting stylists with preparing clients for and during the service being provided; this may include removing colours and blow drying under supervision
  • Keeping the salon clean and tidy
  • Promoting the salon's brand principles
  • Striving to meet training plan targets
  • Completing all work set by trainers and assessors in the agreed time frame
  • Putting into practise what you learn
  • Sourcing suitable models for training and assessment
  • Contributing to the promotion of a pleasant and positive salon atmosphere
  • Supporting new colleagues

Future Prospects

After achieving the Level 2 Hair Professional Apprenticeship you will be encouraged to progress to an Advanced Apprenticeship and gain NVQ level 3. Most of our stylists and technicians have been Apprentices themselves. Since achieving their Advanced Apprenticeships, they have gone on to become senior stylists, trainers, assessors, managers, and have taken part in photo shoots and promotional events.

Reality Check

Hairdressing is not a job - it is a vocation. You need to be prepared to work hard and deliver first class customer service even when you may not be feeling at your best. You will be busy all day and dealing with clients from all walks of life; you can't be expected to like every client, but you will need to make every single one feel they are special. You will need to be flexible because when the salon gets busy everyone needs to help out so that the salon rums smoothly and that could mean bringing forward or pushing back your break. Earnings are not brilliant at the start although tips from satisfied clients will help. Once you start building your own clientele you will earn commission on what you contribute to the salon's takings. The busiest stylists earn the most. Working in a salon is about working as a team, all driven by the same ambition to make every client's visit better than expected, to maintain the loyalty of existing clients and to attract new clients.
