Express yourself with hair and beauty apprenticeships

Hair and beauty apprenticeships provide a real opportunity to improve the lives of the people you work with. Looking and feeling good is a great motivator in life. The social aspect of hair and beauty is another great reason to enter the industry as you will meet many people each day, and working in a team environment can be a lot of fun.

Hair, beauty and nail therapy are diverse professions that can take you virtually anywhere and you could find yourself working in some unusual locations besides a high street salon. Many hairdressers and beauty therapists operate as self-employed freelancers, running their own businesses and visiting clients in their own homes; others find themselves working in spas, health farms, holiday resorts, film and TV sets and even the theatre. Some airlines offer in-flight hair and beauty treatments and most cruise liners will have a hair and beauty salon on board.

Hairdressing services are also required in prisons and on military bases, and both hairdressers and beauty therapists are required in hospitals and care homes to work with people who may be very ill, especially those who are losing their hair through cancer treatment or who need make-up to cover scars, burns and other injuries.

You could go on to work in sales, marketing, public relations and photography, or choose to concentrate on the business aspects of running a salon rather than performing treatments.

Hair and beauty apprenticeships in this sector offer routes into hairdressing, beauty therapy and nail services.
