We look at what you need to find hairdressing jobs in Aberdeen

We all know how tricky it is to find work in the current economic environment, so it's no surprise that more and more people are starting to look at alternative career prospects such as hairdressing and beauty therapy. These jobs will always be in demand, since regardless of the country's financial state people will always want to look and feel their best.

However many people are unsure as to what exactly they need in order to get their foot in the door in the role of hairdresser. Generally, no formal qualifications are necessary in order to start out - in fact many hairdressers got their start by helping our around their local hair salons. While the early jobs may not be the most glamorous, often including making tea, working on the till or sweeping up hair when a haircut is finished, many hairdressers claim that this is the best way to learn everything you need to know about hairdressing.

If you are certain that you would like to be a hairdresser for a living, we recommend that you take a look at some of the courses on offer, such as SVQ Hairdressing Level 2 or NQV qualifications. It is also helpful to have your GCSEs under your belt as they tend to be the base minimum requirement for many hairdressers in Scotland.

As a hairdresser you'll be able to work anywhere in the world, and with countries such as Australia currently suffering a shortage of qualified hairdressers you'll have plenty of options should you choose to leave Scotland.

There are a number of top quality salons that you could contact in order to find out about the availability of trainee positions to kick start your search for hairdressing jobs in Aberdeen, and in particular we recommend Ispiro at 4-6 Schoolhill, Ellees Hair Design at 17 Holburn Street and Angels Hair at 8 School Hill.

You can expect to earn minimum wage for your first year or two as a hairdresser, but once your training and initial period has been served you should be able to make as much as £14,000 per year. Should you really excel and push on into a senior role, annual wages of £30,000+ are not out of the question.
