At River Hair, we believe that one of the secrets to great hairdressing is to consistently push ourselves creatively and to explore fresh new ideas. As an industry, hairdressing is constantly evolving as we keep up with the fashion industry. This makes training and education incredibly important in making sure our stylists remain current in this increasingly competitive market.
Last month’s blog explored the routes you can take to start in the industry. It’s a great career for someone who wants to learn as they go, either by taking the academic route or opting for an apprenticeship. But it’s also very easy to be left behind if you aren’t open to continued professional development. There is always so much to learn, whether you are studying for your NVQ Level 2 or have spent years styling for the stars.
Hairdressing in the UK is regarded as the best in the world, which is testament to the dedicated professionals in our industry who strive to pass on their knowledge and passion to the new generation of stylists, while helping the more experienced constantly evolve. Staying on top of the latest trends has never been more important as the social media world has made an already fast moving fashion industry into a constant sea of change.
There are, of course, many different aspects of hairdressing that each requires a different skillset. You need to have the physical and mental toughness to be on your feet all day. You have to be a people person – outgoing, friendly and customer focused. You will need to be fashion conscious and have a creative mind that loves to be challenged. What this adds up to is a long, varied and exciting career, where no two days are the same and offers the freedom of self-expression in a way that few other careers can.
Each of our handpicked stylists brings something different to River Hair, allowing us to create the perfect look for our clients every time. We love to challenge ourselves and are constantly striving to provide our clients with exciting and refreshing designs that they will love.
Whether you are a budding stylist, looking for a new challenge or someone looking for a new salon and want to be sure you’re in safe hands, we’d love you to come by and meet the team whenever you’re in Taff’s Well.
