What qualifications are needed for hairdressing jobs in Surrey?

While no form of qualification or formal training is necessary in order to make yourself a career as a hairdresser, you are highly unlikely to be hired by any established hair salon without at the very least having an SVQ Hairdressing Level 2 or NVQ qualification to your name. If you plan on going it alone then these are unlikely to be required at all, however given the fact that these courses offer some excellent tips and advice, we do recommend that you take them if at all possible.

Given the fact that the United Kingdom is in the midst of the worst recession for years it is surprising to think that the number of people spending money on beauty products and treatments, including hair styling, has remained quite stable when compared to better times in the early 00s.

It's definitely true that some of the more expensive beauty treatments are becoming less and less popular, but the great thing about being a hairdresser is that everyone needs a hair cut every now and then, so there's always going to be a huge market out there for you to tap into.

Unfortunately, you're going to need to serve your time before you get to that level. When starting out in hairdressing jobs in Surrey you can expect to earn no more than minimum wage of £5.93 for in or around two years. After that things start to pick up, for example you should now be making between £9,000 and £14,000 per year.

The longer you continue in your role, gaining experience as you go, the better the money becomes, although for the most part the ceiling for senior stylists tends to be around £45,000 per year.
