We look at the requirements you'll need to meet for hairdressing jobs in Derby

Given the fact that almost everyone needs to use the services of a good hairdresser on a fairly regular basis it's no surprise that an ever increasing number of people are looking upon hairdressing as a great career choice that will offer them stability and job security regardless of the country's economic circumstances at any given time.

Despite the fact that many experienced hairdressers will tell you that they got their start without having any experience or qualifications, and simply practised until they were good enough, the fact of the matter is that these days there are very few salons or hairdressers who are willing to give an inexperienced, unqualified hopeful a chance.

You can't really argue with their logic, after all they'll need to pay your wages and if you aren't good enough to warrant having a place on the pay roll then you're not worth having around. It's for this reason that it is highly recommended that you partake in an SVQ or NVQ Hairdressing Level 2 course in order to build up the basic knowledge you'll need in order to get your foot in the door in one of the hairdressing jobs in Derby that are currently available.

Once you have the qualification it'll be up to you to find a hairdresser willing to offer you the chance of becoming a trainee. You can expect to make little more than £5.93 per hour during your first year or so as a trainee, but you'll need to pay close attention to your fellow hairdressers when they are working and take advantage of the fact that you are there to learn as much as possible.

Once you are finished your training you should be able to earn as much as £15,000 per year from your newly acquired skills, and should you decide to go even further there are opportunities available for senior stylists in some of the more established salons and hairdressers in the United Kingdom that pay as much as £47,500 per year.
