This qualification reflects the role of hairdressers who use a range of well-developed sales, consultation and technical skills and knowledge to provide a broad range of hairdressing services to clients. They use discretion and judgement to provide client services and take responsibility for the outcomes of their own work. This qualification provides a pathway to work as a hairdresser in any industry environment, usually a salon.
In the main, qualified hairdressers work in the salon environment and provide a full range of services. Many operators choose a specialist pathway as colourist or stylist. Others can work as specialist session stylists in diverse settings including fashion parades, hair shows, technical seminars, platform demonstrations, training sessions and fashion shoots as well as film, television and theatre productions.
These individuals possess a range of well-developed skills where discretion and judgement is required and are responsible for their own outputs.
