About the Industry

At the first swipe of a brush, the beauty services and hairdressing industry might seem like it's only for the glamourous or those who enjoy being in the spotlight. But, the truth is that there's no better 'feel good' career - you will help people feel more self-confident every day.

The industry is made up of primarily small and medium sized businesses that provide a range of services from cut and colours to massage, waxing and skin care. That's not to say you'll only ever work in a salon though, a wide variety of career opportunities exist for hairdressers and beauty therapists. You could work on cruise ships, for magazines, photographic studios, and fashion houses, as a sales representative, or industry educator, in your own business, and more.
