There are many reasons to become a hairdresser! While there can be some negative aspects to the job, this can happen in any career field that you choose.
First – this career is very people oriented. You will meet a lot of people on a day to day basis, and this will help to keep each day interesting! This will also keep you feeling challenged and rewarded because each person presents a new opportunity and challenge.
In addition to a great flow of people, your schedule is very flexible. This keeps the monotony of a 9-5 schedule at bay, although, many hairdressers tend to work weekends – as this is one of their busiest and most fruitful times. While you may see many people in your chair during the day, each person is looking for different services. This will help you to grow your skills, and encourage you to try new things on different people.
Some of the negative aspects of the job include standing for most of your day which can be physically taxing and you will assume a lot of responsibility for your clients. Many people are particular about their hair, and you have to be ready to support them, and bear with them if they change their mind or are unhappy.
