23 Mar My career journey with Headmasters – Clare Hansford
Senior Member of Headmasters Pro Session Team
HOW I DID IT – START YOUNG
I started at Headmasters young, this meant I learnt my hairdressing base skills really early & spent a lot of time on the salon floor dealing with clients, finding out what they really want from their hair.
CHANGE IS GOOD
At first I followed the salon management path & ran the Headmasters Raynes Park Salon successfully & happily for a number of years. I went on a few part time make-up courses at the London College of Fashion & then joined the Headmasters Artistic Team where I am happily still growing in my hairdressing job, learning & being inspired.
Join a hairdressing group with a strong art team who support you with continual education throughout your hairdressing job. Look at salons you have heard of & check they have an academy. Most importantly make sure you are truly inspired by the images they produce – if you are 9 times out of 10 it will be the right fit for you.
STYLE YOUR CAREER YOUR WAY
If you think Headmasters might be the right fit for you, we would love to hear from you. Headmasters are always recruiting stylists, apprentices, receptionists & managers because our company is continually opening new, beautiful salons in and around London locations. This is your time to shine and benefit from flexible hours, fast track promotion, free senior education, & multiple career paths.
