If you are looking to be a hairdresser, most people start out doing a hairdressing course at college and perhaps getting real experience at a salon in their part time. This course can also be done on a day release basis where by the salon you work for supports you through your training.
You will be in contact with people constantly so you must be friendly and have excellent customer skills as well as have a willingness to learn and to change and keep learning new ways of doing things.

Cover Letter for Hairdresser
Application for the role of a Hairdresser
I have recently seen that you are advertising for a Hairdresser and I would be keen to apply.
I attend college where I am studying hairdressing and am looking for a new salon to continue with my training. I am at (detail what stage in your training you are at, if this is the case or what stage in your hairdressing career you are in).
I enjoy the role of Hairdressing as I like to make people feel good about themselves and have always been passionate and daring with my own hair changing colour and styles frequently. I understand that not everyone wants drastic changes but having your hair done makes you feel good so for that it is worthwhile to me.
I feel that I am a confident communicator and good with customers and have had a great deal of experience in customer services through various roles in my earlier career. (Have you ever been praised on something particular related to customer service that you have provided that you could comment on here?).
I have enclosed my current CV for you to look at my experiences. If you would like some more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my CV and letter and I look forward to hearing from you.
