How to find junior hairdressing jobs

If you want to pursue a career in hairdressing, one of the best things you can do is to get as much hands on experience as possible. A junior position is the perfect starting point if you have just completed your hairdressing qualification or apprenticeship. It helps to make the transition from trainee to professional much easier, and allows you to build a strong foundation for your career.

But how do you go about finding junior hairdressing jobs? There are a number of ways to go about it; here we look at some of the most popular and most reliable...

  • Online: large job sites like Total Jobs, Job is Job, Monster and Reed have thousands of job listings and are some of the best places to find vacancies in the UK. However, many salons cannot afford the high cost of advertising on paid job sites, so it's a good idea to check free sites like Gumtree Jobs to see if there's any interesting opportunities listed there.
  • Local media: many recruiters still prefer the old fashioned method of finding staff - placing a job advert in the local newspaper, the classifieds section or in a weekly job finder pull out. So keep a close eye on the local media!
  • In person: if you've undergone hairdresser training or a hairdresser course, the chances are that you already have some contacts in the industry. Ask them to keep an ear out for any junior hairdressing job opportunities. You could also call into local salons with a copy of your CV.
