All this is way new to me and I'm glad to be part of something big like this. I think it's great that people decided to put this together. As a hairstylist it's important to always be learning and what better way to learn that by helping each other out

Hi,
I'm Jenny and new - just on here for some advice please
I'm a 34 year old mum to two fab boys aged 10 yrs and 14 yrs. I currently work as a teaching assistant and really enjoy it, having said that I am interested in starting to train in hairdressing to gain a life-long skill of which I believe are many pathways,employment,mobile,own business,etc. This was something I was going to start aged 17 yrs but decided to return to education at the last minute.
Does anyone on here have any advice please? Is it too late for me?
I would really appreciate honest feedback even if it is negative - as I said I'm a 34 year old mum, I can take it,lol!
Cheers,
Jenny

Hi jenny,
           Your life experiennce skills ill be an asset the hairdressing industry,
and those are the points you could stress, yes it is dominated by young people, but there are many people your age an ar older that make it, many hairdressers struggle to deal with children, you have those skills, manging a home requires similar skills to manging a salon, look at all the skills you have learnt and show theseparellels to an employer, your age is not a barrier, turn itto your advantage and make it work for you, and good luck,you will make it if you are comitted

Hi, I'm 'new' to this. By 'this' i mean hairdressing.
I'm currently at university, studying religion and theology, and i hate it. All i've ever wanted to do is be a hairdresser, and i've decided to leave university after this year and start training at my local college. I'm really nervous as I feel that this is a huge step in my life, and could really do with some advice and support.

I'm a realist, and so i don't believe in the 'perfect' job, but i do believe that certain skills are required with each proffession. There's always something you hate doing, no matter what proffession you're in, and i'd really like some feedback on the highs and lows of being a hairdresser as my mother is convinced i'm living in a fantasy world and that i'll never make it as a hairdresser, that it's not a 'real' job, and that i'm going to be an awful hairdresser...

Please, anyone, help me out
I'd really like to prove my mother wrong, although, at my core I know that this has nothing to do with her, it's what i want so badly, and so i'm doing it, without any support from my family... so a little encouragement or reassurance would be so nice... they're starting to get to me.

Sorry to blab like that... I'm just so desperate for some honest advice...

hallo Rosethyme,
              thanks for calling in, what lead you to university in the first place ? a degree in any subject is a worthwhile achievement, how long have you been studying ? family pressures are difficult especially if there is conflict, apart from lack of family support, is there anything else stopping you changing direction, is it a realistic propersition ? but its your future and I would say there is a lot to be gained by following your passion, have you had any hairdressing experiennce ? it is a proper job, and I think you would make a brilliant hairdresser if you have the dedication and comitment to see it through, you will always get advice and support in here, as for the high and lows, in an industry that deals with people, that would be your biggest challenge, then there are the technical skills to be learnt and a certain amount of creative flair is required, some complain of long hours with little financial return, but others make a sucessful career for themselves, but like everything, it is a competative industry, I dont think anyone has the right to tell you that you would make an awful hairdresser, unfounded negative critisism is damaging, so be strong, so talk to people who will give you an unbiased point of view on the subject, and yes difinately give it a go, you sound very determined to me, and good luck

oh, how do i upload a picture? not onto the page, but as my profile picture? i'm totally kerfuffled!
i'm coming to the end of my first year of university, the work is easy, but it's not what i want to do, i'm not interested in getting this degree. i am determined, and now that i've made my mind up, i don't think anyone is going to be able to change it... the only experience i have with hair is my barbies, i've been dying and cutting my own hair for about 5 years, and i love to experiment... it's green at the moment!

Well done for uploading a picture, still if you finish your first year, you still have that under your belt and you can always return if you change your mind,
green hair, sounds interesting
well good luck on your new chosen path, have you looked into any college courses ?

yes, i'm finishing my first year, so that i have 120 points to keep if i ever choose to do a university degree.
I've looked into a few courses, but there seem to be so many!
some places are saying that i can go straight into NVQ level 2 as i have the academic requirements, others are saying i should do level 1first...
and then there's part-time with an apprenticeship, full-time, or part-time evenings while having a normal job...
i really don't know what to apply for...
aaargh!
