Since the world started hair has been a very important aspect of
individual personality and with the change in time hair has emerged as a
big form of self expression for both men and women.
In todays world everyone wants to look beautiful, everyone wants to get
compliment from their friends and its a well known fact that when you look
good you feel good and then you work better. In today's modern world
peoples are most sophisticated-more educated and more fashion conscious
whether male or female.
Hair dressing industy is a huge growth area all over the world, As with
clothes, hair styles change with fashion and with more & more people taking
an interest in the way they look, the hair dressing industry will be as
popular as ever for a long time to come. People are now realizing that its
not their clothes, shoes, jewellery which describes them it is also their
hair, this is the reason they are getting more experimental and are open to
change. The result? you can see on the streets women are going for their
own individual & different style, they are not bothered about what people
will say. There is lot of movement and texture in the hair as it use to be
and it also benefitted the stylists now they can show their skills &
creativity. Today hair dressing is one of the top industry in the world and
as the fashion expand in fashion industry oppurtunities are growing at good
pace not only in hair salons but also in film & tv industry, fashion
houses, magazines, photo studios etc. So if you enjoy working with people,
like to use your creative abilities, have interest in fashion & art and
enjoy a sense of achievement in your work, then a career in Hair dressing
is waiting for you. I feel there is tons of potential in the hair dressing
industry, the opportunity for growth and personal development is the part
of this profession. Hair dressing is a career which allows you to showcase
your creativity to have fun, to earn name, fame and good money. Great
opportunity for growth and through your work and also you will have the
opportunity to meet new people and always learn something new.
Also to change few People opinion I must say hair styling is an art and a
good hair stylist is always a very valuable commodity. A hair stylist that
specializes in dealing with your hair type is even more valuable and much
harder to come by. I really believe that the cut and style of your hair can
transform your look and personality from grossly ugly to a glamorous look.
professional and competent hair cutting is the basis of good hair dressing.
Designing a Cut needs care, precision, artistic appreciation, technique
combination and control. It includes the elements of balance rhythm, line
and movement. Understanding the nature of shapes is having an understanding
of the elements that build them. The building components in creating shapes
are points, lines and angles. Each component defines the nature of the
shape and the style it represents.
Hairdresser is involved in helping a person make the most of their
appearance. It is a fast moving profession with many exciting opportunities
available. I must say oppurtunities for talented, creative, innovative
people are endless. The hairdressing industry is continually developing and
changing, creating an increasing range of styles that can be used. Believe
me there are many different hair cutting styles and techniques that one
wouldn't believe it. What is really a hair cut? It is a geometry applied to
hair. A very caring hairdresser will study very hard to understand all
angles, circles and lines he/she might have to use while haircutting, in
order to fit his/hers clients body and face shapes. Understand the words
beauty & art and Always remember the sentence "we really care for our clients"
So when you make your mind that you really want to take up this profession,
understand few things 1. It involves dealing with people. 2. It is an
important part of the fashion industry and involves using your creativity
and imagination. 3. You need to have communication skills in order to talk
to clients and build up a good relationship, have a friendly manner and
good listening skills 4.It is a physically demanding job, requiring you to
spend long hours on your feet. so if you have tired legs dont think of it.
BEST OF LUCK FOR THIS EXCITING CAREER.
