A day in the life of an apprentice, by George Ruston
It’s my turn to do a little blog, so I thought I’d give you guys a quick introduction into what it’s like being an apprentice in a super busy hair salon.
I see an apprentice as being the engine or back bone of the salon. From the simple tasks to technical work, the variety in jobs to do is broad, to say the least.
One minute I may be making a coffee for a client (or the boss) and the next I’ll be assisting a stylist with applying colour or a blow dry. There is never much time to sit down and chill out as it’s usually one job to the next, which for me is great, if you love being on your feet and really working hard then this is perfect.
For me, the best part of the day has to be the training. After putting in the work assisting stylists, actually being able to practice what you love and enjoy is super rewarding. Training can be hard at first and almost seem impossible but once it clicks into place , being able to look back and realise how much you have learnt is very motivating.
So if you are reading this and thinking about becoming the next worlds best hairdresser then… go for it, don’t hesitate, just jump in. If you put the work in, it will be worth it.
Thanks for reading.
