      Your creativity can grow and flourish in this industry. 

        Each of the big names in beauty bring their own style to the industry. If you have a creative eye, this is a great sector to grow and have fun with it. 

        You can enjoy socialising whilst at work. 

          Being a people-orientated sector, you can get to know people and have a chat during work hours. From regular customers that you develop relationships with, to being involved in/ meeting people getting ready for a special occasion. 

          You can choose your work-life balance. 

            If 9-5 in the salon isn’t for you, don’t worry! This industry is flexible and you’re able to choose what hours work for you and your lifestyle. Whether you choose to work during the day, evenings, or weekends – it's all up to you!
