Hair and Beauty

Do you have strong communications skills? Are you open to new ideas? Do you love being creative?

Hairdressing, beauty therapy and nail technology all give you the chance to show others what you can do for them. Your work can really make or break someone’s day. To be successful in these industries you must enjoy meeting new people and listening to their needs. You should be reliable, enthusiastic and good at working with others. It’s also really important to be discreet and to be tactful.

These are rewarding industries to work in if you love keeping up with new styles and trends, like to be busy and are good with your hands – chances are you’ll need to work quickly and have some artistic flair.
