Looking for hairdressing jobs in Fife? We have compiled a brief guide

If you are considering taking the plunge and changing careers then why not give some thought to the hairdressing industry. While other sectors of the beauty industry are being affected by the recession and a lack of customers willing to spend money, hairdressers are always needed since very few people are willing to take the risk of cutting their own hair.

Due to the fact that there are so many people out there to tap into, hairdressing will always be quite a lucrative market. The only real problem with switching careers to get into hairdressing is the fact that at the moment there are less vacancies than there are people to fill them, which is always a problem for a job seeker.

In order to give yourself the best chance of success in your new career, we recommend that you partake in a formal course on hairdressing. Not only will this teach you the basics about the job, but you'll also have something to show to potential employers that might just set you aside from the rest of the people looking for hairdressing jobs in Fife.

The most commonly accepted hairdressing qualifications are the NVQ or SVQ Hairdressing Level 2 qualification. There are plenty of further education colleges around Scotland where you can take these courses to set yourself up for a career. Unfortunately you should be aware that when you start out you're likely to be on minimum wage of just £5.93 per hour for the first year or so. After that you can expect to start climbing up the ladder, earning between £9,000 and £15,000 per year for your work.
