What this job is about
Mixing hair dye; cleaning up work stations; making appointments – it's all part of the job when you're a hairstylist. But to get to a place where you're actually cutting, coloring and otherwise touching a client's head means doing your time on the administrative and support side. That's where hairstylist apprenticeships come in handy. Apprenticeships prep you to become a licensed stylist as you get used to the salon setting and help stylists with their daily tasks. It's a job that requires attention to detail and excellent observation skills and a total must if you're planning on one day becoming a licensed stylist yourself.
