We spoke to Erin Collins and Charlotte Ginder who are both hairdressing apprentices and train at The Hair Academy. They tell us all about their apprenticeships, what they enjoy about them and what they get up to on a typical day in the salon. 

My name is Erin Collins and I am doing a level 3 in hairdressing.

What do you enjoy most about your apprenticeship?

What I enjoy most about my apprenticeship is all the friends I have made coming to here with everyone. I also enjoy the support I get from the tutors during my education.

What do you do on a day to day basis?

On a day to day basis in the salon we fulfil reception duties and mix colours for the stylists. We also do free colour blow dries for anyone in the salon that has a colour.

What do you like most about the hair academy?

The hair academy is great because you get a lot of support during everything you do, the tutors really care about your education, and they will do anything they can to get you up to speed if you happen to miss a day or anything.

Charlotte Ginder, Level 3 Apprenticeship in Hairdressing

What do you enjoy most about your apprenticeship?

What I enjoy most about my apprenticeship is the training, I absolutely love the training, coming to the hair academy every single Monday. I find it makes it a lot easier you get a lot of support not only in work but in the hair academy itself.

What skills have you learnt?

My customer service skills, I’ve met a lot of new people along the way and I find that it is very important in hairdressing to be able to connect with clients and customers.

What do you like most about the hair academy?

I like the hair academy because I think the tutors are absolutely amazing, and also the girls and the lads here are just so friendly and you fit in really well.
