Many people can find temporary jobs, but finding a career is a more challenging prospect. A career is something that you want to stick with for the long term, so it should be a good match for your personality and interests. If you are still looking for that perfect fit, consider a career as a hair stylist. Keep reading to find out whether you have the characteristics of a great stylist.
- You Love Hair: This characteristic is probably the most obvious indicator that you would make a great stylist. You might love hair color, hair styles, or both. Consider how many times your color or style has changed in the last year. Are you always busy achieving that great new style that you saw a star sporting on the red carpet? Maybe you just can’t keep your hands off of your friends’ hair and are their go-to person when they need a style for a wedding or event. If working with hair makes you happy, why not do it for a living?
- You Love Learning: Good hair stylists are always learning new techniques and getting instructional support from their salon managers. Because hair styles are subject to fashion, you have to be willing to adapt to new trends and learn how to give your clients up-to-date looks.
- You Love to Talk, but Can Keep a Secret: Hair stylists meet new people every day, and need to make those people feel comfortable and welcome. Stylists also need to be great communicators. If you have a desire to understand what each potential client wants from a cut or color, then you may be ready to start your new career. Clients will often chat with their hairstylist and reveal personal details, so you should be able to keep their secrets quiet to retain their trust.
