We take a look at what you need for Pontypridd hairdressing jobs

The beauty industry and United Kingdom still being one of the most sought after industries for which young people seek employment, it's quite surprising to learn that there are still countless individuals out there who are unsure as to what qualifications they actually need in order to get their foot in the door.

Depending on who you ask, you're likely to get a completely different answer as to whether you actually need some sort of college education or a higher level qualification in order to successfully apply for job vacancies. All that, or a more established hairdressers will most likely tell you that you don't actually need any sort of qualification, in fact many of them claim that you're much better off just going straight into a trainee position from school.

However the truth of the matter is that while it is not essential, at least technically, to have some sort of formal education in order to to be considered for a hairdressing position, you'll stand a much better position if you hold at least an SVQ or NVQ hairdressing Level 2 qualification.

Not only does this qualification teach you the basics of both hairdressing and the business principles behind it, but it also proves to potential employers that you know your stuff and are willing to put in the time and effort to learn. This means that you should be able to find yourself trainee Pontypridd hairdressing jobs with relative ease.

As a trainee hairdresser you can expect to earn minimum wage of £5.93 per hour for the first year, and then anywhere up to £15,000 per year - even more, if you seek to progress to become a senior stylist.
