Hardressers are crucial parts of the salon team. This salon team is more like a “salon family”, with opportunities to make friends.

The salon workplace is your “stage” where you perform your skills and like any good performer, you like a happy and appreciative audience (the clients), as well as being a valued member of the talented salon team.

It is uplifting and rewarding to be part of a professional salon team and a permanent job placement can add to that sense of feeling more part of the salon team.

Latest Industry Trends In The Hair Temp Jobs Market London

Industry Background For Hairdressers In London

Hair temping has always been popular for qualified hairdressers in big Cities like London and this has continued for more than 25 years according to leading recruitment industry experts.

Why Are Hair Temps Popular In London

Reason: Temping offers hairdressers the perfect balance between finding regular hairdressing work, doing the thing you love in an exiting location, along with the flexibility to build a work schedule around your desired lifestyle choices.

Qualified staff for Temping is usually required, either to cover busy weekends, sickness, maternity or the busy  holiday season, working for hair salons in London.

Qualifications Required For Hair Temping

The minimum qualification to become a fully qualified hairdresser is a level 2 or level 3 qualification in hairdressing.

Latest Industry Trends For Hair Temping In London

More temps, please!!

There are some noticeable trends going on in the hair temp industry in London that are worth mentioning as they show a marked change from what was the norm over the last few years.

Let me explain. The latest research shows the following trends:

  • The usual temp season of March 1st to 30th September 2017 for hairdressers started earlier in February and is still not stopped in November.
  • In fact the demand for hair temps is continuing amongst hair salons
  • Overall the number of temp job vacancies has grown significantly over 2017 as well as the temp season appearing not to follow the traditional seasonal trend of previous years
  • There is a skills shortage in London resulting in more demand for hairdressing temps than there are candidates to cover these temp job opportunities

Why Is The Demand So High For Hair Temps In London Right Now?

Rose Hadley London in October 2017 said in a recent interview that “After 25 years of business in the UK, covering London, this year 2017 has been exceptional, defying all the usual seasonal trends and demand is huge for qualified Hair temps in London”.

  • The reason may be explained by the uncertainty caused by Brexit, the vote in favour of the UK leaving the European Union
  • Another reason could be the meteoric rise of the hair industry with many hairdressers upskilling to Level 4
  • In previous years Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans were driving the market too
  • Either way, Temps are in big demand with lots of temp jobs in London available, it is fair to say that Temps are driving the employment market and therefore also driving the recruitment industry growth for hairdressing temps

Conclusions

  • Demand for hair temps in London is up significantly and growing rapidly!
  • There is certainly a demand for permanent hairdressers, companies are however having to embrace hair temps as a vital resource now far more so than in recent years.
  • It appears the impact of Brexit and the uncertainty it brings is impacting on the hair jobs market to push up demand for temps.

Top Hairdressers Welcome In London

Top Hairdressers Welcome In London

Experienced top hairdressers are required immediately in London and also overseas.
Whether it’s hair cutting, colouring or styling, there’s an ever growing demand for top hairdressers with these skills. London hair salons in particular are seeking experienced top hairdressers to join their teams.

What Makes a Top Hairdresser?

…. and how do you ensure both hair and client success?

Here’s eight top tips that help ensure success as a top hairdresser in London.

Consult Like A Top Professional

Whether we like it or not, first impressions count, especially when it comes to impressing hair clients. If we think of hairdressing as a process involving clients, the first stage is the “meet and greet” upon salon arrival. This is generally under the control of the salon receptionist, so hopefully they are well trained to make a good first impression.
A warm welcome upon arrival is important, as it helps win the client over with good customer service prior to the client consultation.
With necessary care and attention, the meet and greet should proceed seamlessly to a positive, inspiring and memorable client consultation. If there is one thing that shows a top hairdresser from their less successful peers, it’s the quality of the hair consultation.

How do the top hair professionals do this?

Here’s What You Need To Know:-
• Make the client feel important
• Check client is comfortable in their chair (or do they want a coffee?)
• Ask quality open ended questions to discover client hair preferences
• Use listening skills to ensure you understand client needs
• Repeat back to client what you heard, so they know you listened
• Good eye contact to show you really care (but not too much!)
• Show enthusiasm for the what needs done
• Know your products (so you can recommend if asked)

The client consultation is a fantastic opportunity to communicate to the client how important they are to us.
Get attuned to your client needs, listen carefully to what they want done to their hair and set the tone for a successful hair management appointment.
During the hair consultation, you are their personal hair advisor, ready to provide solutions. So make the most of it and impress.

The Practical Stuff…

Haircutting Skills

Hairdressers are renowned for their primary skill of haircutting and this comes in many forms from fringe trims to full restyles.
The most successful hairdressers have both practical hair cutting experience, along with advanced people skills.

Hair Washing (Backwash loving!)

Hair wash is part of a good hair service offering, but what is best practice these days?
In top salons, it’s not just a hair wash, it’s a head massage, reiki and hair conditioning all rolled into the one. Take the opportunity to add a top customer service experience for the hair wash.

All clients will then remember the wash for the professionalism and care shown, rather than for water dripping down the back of their necks!

Perming

Perming is not as popular as in the past, but there are still some, mainly an older set of clients who enjoy a regular hair perm. Hair stylists use perming to create hair bounce and curl.

Hair Colouring

Colour technicians are experts in their craft of hair colouring. Knowledge of hair dye products and practical hair colouring experience are invaluable in the process of hair colour management. Clients will usually have some preferences for colour, but many seek advice and rely on hairdressing expertise to make it a reality for them.
Hair colouring is popular and provides regular work for hair salons because it’s difficult for clients to do themselves at home. If they have ever tried it, clients quickly find out it’s messy and inconvenient. Not a good idea and best left to the professional hair stylists.

Blow Drying (With Gusto!)

Blow drying, straightening and curling tongs are used by professional hairdressers to create a masterpiece hairstyling. It’s time to use your experience to make the most of the right heat, choosing the right hairbrushes for client satisfaction.

People Skills

All top hairdressers know this. Clients value hair technicians with good people skills.
Some clients have some things they want to chat about other than their hair. They take the opportunity to “chat” and share their life secrets with hairdressers. It could be holidays or their love life so be prepared. The ability to listen without judgement goes a long way to being a successful hairdresser. Communication during a hairdressing session is a priceless part of what hairstylists offer their clients.

The Feel Good Factor

Modern society can be stressful, so what better way to feel good and de-stress during work breaks and weekends than some hairdressing.
It can be best summed up as hairdressers offering the “feel good factor” to clients.

So if you are a hairdresser, hair stylist or colour technician, you will know your hair skills make a big difference to people, bringing beautifully cut and styled hair, as well as precious moments relaxation and the feel good factor for clients.
