Why should you, therefore, be happy and proud about working in the hairdressing industry? We let Amanda and Melanie explain…
„If creating comes naturally to you, if you love people and find joy in making them smile, then embrace the hairdressing industry with open arms! Don’t limit yourself in any way. I have gained a skill that I can take anywhere with very little tools to carry around. I happily work from home now after working in salons around Australia. Don’t put yourself in a box, because the sky really is the limit in this ever changing, exciting industry.” – says Melanie.
„Anyone who is aspiring to enter our industry needs to have a passion for people and hair, it’s not a job, it’s deeper than a job and it’s personal. I’ve got clients that I’ve had from the very beginning of my career – that’s 17 years! These beautiful people have been investing in me and that’s an honour, not a job. Anyone should give it a go, it will be the most creative and rewarding thing you will do. It’s a lot of hard work and sometimes it can be less pleasant, it’s true, but all that is outweighed by the lovely people who will become a big part of your life. The hairdressing industry can open up so many new doors to exciting and challenging opportunities. Every part of our industry is worth it!” – says Amanda.
