Rob Eaton - Russell Eaton Salon Barnsley & Leeds

" Hairdressing is a fantastic career offering so many opportunities and options to grow and develop within the industry. An apprenticeship in hairdressing will give you the practical skills and confidence to excel in so many different ways.

The hairdressing industry can take you in so many different directions; creative work, teaching, shows, editorial work and seminars. Working within a happy and creative work environment and the ability to work towards working for yourself and your own salon. The opportunities are endless.

Hairdressing is regularly voted as one of the happiest workplaces to be part of. I have loved every second of my career so far in the hairdressing industry and my advice to anyone considering an apprenticeship is to go for it, you will never look back. "
