April 18, 2015 0 Comments
The 21st century offers the youth a number of career paths to choose from. Some are well known and well tread upon while some were not considered as lucrative early as in current times. For example, the job of a hairdresser was not considered so lucrative until recent times when many have established themselves financially and in other aspects. However, nothing happens over night and if you are passionate about hairdressing and would like a successful career in the profession then it is important for you to undertake a hairdressing course.
What will you learn in a Hair Dressing Courses?

1. Various styles and techniques: although you may be a natural at hairdressing, you still have to learn time tested techniques and all the styles that are possible and are popular. Hairdressing involves all aspects form cutting to shampooing, coloring, perking, straightening and a lot more. The way a trained professional will shampoo a clients’ hair is very different from how an untrained or an ordinary person will shampoo. There are plenty of techniques used in the profession that a good course will teach you.
2. Health: remember the client considers you a professional in all matters of the hair and you should rightly train yourself the same way too. You must also keep updating your knowledge even after the course is over. There are certain health guidelines that will always remain true for the hair that the course will train you with. Clients often ask their hairdressers what food to eat and what shampoo to use and also which direction to comb the hair, etc. The trained professional should be always ready with an appropriate answer.
It is the duty of the hairdresser to advise products to be used on the basis of sound knowledge rather than give advice like any ordinary person. The hairdresser will also be taught hygiene methods of styling, cutting, straightening or any other styling activity. There are too many infections that can be spread through the use of unclean and unsterilized tools used in the salon. You will be taught to sterilize these tools after catering to one client. If the professional does not follow these guidelines of hygiene, then he or she may cause the spread of serious infections.
3. Duties: you will also be told about what your duties are when working in a salon and how to talk to clients, how to fix appointments, take messages, fill out recipients and numerous other activities involved in running a salon apart from the above two points.
How to Choose a Course?

There are many places where good courses are being offered, but you must consider the following points before making a choice:
  • Times have changed and you cannot enroll in a curse that is outdated. You must ensure that its curriculum is up-to-date and you will be taught all the latest techniques and styles. In order to be sure of this, there is an easy way. Just check whether the institute follows any standards or whether it has been certified by international company or whether it has a reputation of moving along with contemporary international standards.
  • Accreditation - if the course talks about any well known accreditation then find out whether it is up-to-date or the institute is trying to fool students by using an old accreditation that they used to have and which is not valid now.
  • Infrastructure - if you are planning on a good career then it is important that you are well aware of all the equipment currently being used in the top spas and salons in the world. Moreover, there will be some theory classes too, and you would definitely want to feel comfortable during these classes too, so the condition of the classrooms should also suit you.
  • Hands On training - you must remember that this is a career where practical training will prove useful and not merely theoretical classes no matter how good the content of the lessons are. Hence, make sure to ask the number of hours of practical training.
  • Trainer quality – find out the experience and qualification of your trainers!
  • Placement Opportunities – if any course provides this then there is nothing like it. However, do not rely on their promises alone. Check their history with previous batches of passed out students to be sure.
