The Apprentice’s Role

Duties are likely to include meeting and greeting clients, shampooing, removing colour, conditioning, drying and styling hair.

You will also generate and promote a professional working atmosphere and assist stylists in advising clients in all aspects of services available, including advising clients of all products, tools and equipment available for retail purchase.
