Hi Davey. I'm sure that once the hair geeks are home from work later today, you'll get a lot of response............even if it's just words of wisdom and advice. So hang in there mate. xxx

What i did was i made myself look amazing (lol) and walked and walked,went in every salon and asked to see the manager and tried to convince them they wanted me,i ended up in a fab salon and IMO it shows more get up and go than a quick phone call.

Even if they say no,ask to leave your details,they won't forget you as everyone else will have rung :!:

just to add to this, as i know you have got a placement already ( well done btw x)

when we get ppl in for placements who just popin, we take their number but it can get lost,

we find the ones that have done a little cv or a brief description about themselves etc with school qualificiatons on it etc, and bring it it to be left for the manager have more of a chance of being interviewed
hth anyone else wanting an apprenticeship?
