    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    omg no way! That’s horrid.. sadly you get people like that in every business. Some bosses are just awful and love making certain individuals their scapegoat to chip away at and humiliate! But I have met some absolutely lovely hairdressers too x

    they never did! I just noticed when going through my things and then remembered how hard of a time I have when using scissors and that’s what made me think. I’m going to take them back and ask to swap tomorrow.

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    Oh and one thing I wanted to ask you guys.. I went and bought all of my kit from the wholesalers on Friday. I had a list from the college and paid for it myself. I’ve just realised the scissors (standard and thinners) are right handed. I’m left handed. Do I need to ask if I can swap them? Do...

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    I know! I couldn’t believe it. I’ve just had another salon owner say to me “but what are you ACTUALLY going to be doing at college though? That’s not going to make you a hairdresser” ..like really? I’m getting a certificate. I appreciate you need some time in a salon to pick up a lot of what it...

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    UPDATE! So.. after hitting a wall trying to get an apprenticeship, and speaking to some downright shitty people (one salon owner phoned me just to tell me not to bother! And don’t bother going to college! No problem.. I’ll work in a call centre for the rest of my days on earth NOT) I’m going...

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    hello! Thank you for your reply I actually feel much more upbeat after reading it. The people who I know personally in the industry have said that it will be harder because of my age but not impossible. Plus there will be some people who prefer someone more mature. I REALLY want to do this, I...

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    hi! Thank you so much for your reply. I know what you mean, i think I’m in a better position on a personal level now than what I was at school leaving age. I’ve matured so much. I really want to do this, I just can’t hack the job I’m doing anymore as whatever small amount of interest I had in it...

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    I actually do have a mortgage and bills to pay, that’s why I can’t drop out of my rather well paying job to go and be a receptionist part time with a semi wishy washy view to someone maybe giving me a role. I wanted a clear path, giving me the best chance to succeed. I’m just trying to be...

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    Really feels like I should just give up. Such a shame as it had taken so much for me to pursue it and actually make the decision to take the plunge. It was going to be a massive sacrifice that I was ready to make... guess I really just fucked up in my life lol serves me right

    thanks... that makes me feel ridiculously old and helpless even though I’m only 25. It appears life experience and maturity don’t count for anything in this trade :/ do you have any suggestions as to how else I could go about this?

    Feeling down and deflated. Mature student wanting to become a hairdresser

    Hi everyone hope you’re well. I posted before about wanting to start a career in hairdressing. I’m 25 and have wanted this since I was 16 but unfortunately my mother literally bullied me into A-Levels, she even said she wouldn’t provide for me if I didn’t make the choices she wanted me to. at...

    25 years old and wanting to start a career in hairdressing!

    Hello everyone! So basically I work in a very boring customer services job, full time. The money is good but it is destroying my soul. Ever since leaving school I have wanted to do hair but my mother bullied me into taking A Levels. Lockdown has given me a whole new perspective and I just cannot...
