Artist. Stylist. Technician. Entrepreneur – Hair Professional
Hairstyling is no longer what it used to be. The days of just walking into a barber shop and getting a trim and a shave are long gone and today, being a hairstylist or barber is a demanding and challenging career that takes design, art and creativity to a whole new level. The scope for employment for a professional hairstylist is enormous, with many hairstylists opening their own salons exclusively for hairstyling. Others go into consultancy and still others have made a lucrative career out of the production and marketing of hair care products.
Beauty Professionals are in High Demand
A career in hairstyling can be a challenging one, as the need for cutting edge stylists is very high, both in the entertainment field and in everyday life. More and more people want to look good and are willing to take the risk to try something different. A professional hairstylist must be able to find a cut and style that will suit their client and ensure that the client is satisfied enough to be a return again. Hairstylists must also be aware of dermatological issues and the ways in which to treat damaged or undernourished hair.
