It is important to obtain a hairdressing apprenticeship before applying for a job as a hairdresser. A budding hairdresser gets a great chance to attain on-the-job training and understanding of the salon world through an apprenticeship program.

Typically, apprentice hairdressers perform duties such as booking appointments, shampooing and drying hair and mixing hair color. They assist hairdressers in various duties and learn the trade simultaneously. In order to find a hairdressing apprenticeship, you must have some training in salon services, specifically hairdressing. Mention of a diploma or training certificate in hairdressing on a cover letter can go a long way in getting you an apprenticeship position.

Dear Ms. Alexander:

As the accompanying resume indicates, I have recently completed a Level 4 Diploma in Hairdressing from Hairvolution Training Center. Fulfilling this requirement of your salon to acquire an apprentice hairdresser position at Dreamfields, I would like to offer my services.

At the Hairvolution Training Center, I went through rigorous mock sessions post training which has prepared me well in the following areas:

– Cutting, washing and setting hair
– Client preparation and education
– Using clippers, scissors and trimmers in a safe manner
– Mixing and applying hair color
– Sterilizing salon instruments

I am aware to the fact that clients prefer a particular salon based 50% on the salon’s services and 50% on the hairdresser’s attitude. This information has gone a long way in helping me understand that positive client experiences are the key to recurring business and client retention.

My resume and a letter of introduction from my trainer at Hairvolution is enclosed herewith which will help you decide my candidacy for this position. I would welcome an opportunity to meet with you in person.

Thank you for your consideration.
