The skills of a hairdresser consist of cutting hair, or shaping and styling hair. These skills require the use of tools such as scissors, combs, brushes, curling irons, curlers and hair dryers. They often times apply a post styling gel, or add coloring or streaks of color for additional effect.
While working with a client, or upon finishing work with a client, a hairdresser may advise the client on how to care for their new hair style at home.

Finally, developing and nurturing the client relationship is key. Good people skills and a focus on satisfying and pleasing your client is a must.
This will create that “magical” relationship that every hairdresser wants with their client. It will ensure that the clients returns for future business.
