All it takes is a look at their distinctive ’do for you to know who they are. And who can forget ‘The Rachel’?
Why the hair obsession? Because hair defines you. It shapes your face, hides your flaws, draws attention to your finer features and can either make you stand out from the crowd, or help obscure your identity.
The army shave it for uniformity, women dye and chop it off post-breakup, and men revere a full head of hair (look what happened to Samson when he lost his luscious locks!).
Hair plays a crucial part in how we look and present ourselves, and the hairdressing and beauty services industry is worth $4 billion in Australia alone. Even in the face of a turbulent economy, people continue to spend on hair.
But not anyone can be a hairdresser (as your mother’s home haircuts prove). It’s a technical and creative career that requires precision, expertise and good communication skills. So if you think you’ve got what it takes and have a passion for hairdressing, consider completing one of our online hairdressing courses.
By undertaking a hairdressing course you will gain industry-level qualifications and the training needed to work as a professional hairdresser. You’ll be trained with all the essential skills required to cut, dye, thin, highlight, curl and blow-dry any head of hair. You’ll also be trained in customer service, retail services and professional development.
For those of you who aren’t content with being just another Edward Scissorhands extraordinaire (minus the freaky outfit) and who want to start your own hairdressing salons, there are a number of hairdressing courses that will give you the management skills needed to run a successful business. The course will cover management in all areas, ranging from finances and marketing, to salon and frontline management.
Whatever your hairdressing dream, it all starts with an online hairdressing course.
