Working as a Hair Designer

Hair designers engage in a number of different activities during the course of a day, and must be flexible individuals who can move comfortably from one activity to another. If you work in a salon or spa, clients will come in to see you, and you may perform shampooing and conditioning, haircutting, coloring, and other services as well as hair design. If you specialize in hair designs for special situations such as fashion and photo shoots, or bridal parties, chances are good that you will have to travel to the location of the even t to create the hair designs, so a willingness and ability to travel are necessary. In between clients, you will need to be cleaning and straightening your work station so it remains fresh and attractive for the next client you will see that day.
