Position Overview

Working primarily in salons and spas, hairdressers provide hair cutting and styling services to diverse clients. They talk them to understand their styling needs and provide suggestions to meet those needs. Technically, hairdressers are expected to provide more than just hair styling services; since they are registered cosmetologists, they are also expected to provide skin treatments such as facials and manicures.

Hairdressers need to hold a cosmetology license before they can work at this position. Since this licensure is extremely important, most employers will call you for an immediate interview if you mention it on your cover letter.

Mrs. Adrianne Ryan
Tangerine Salons
56 Colenta Street
Marion, KS 73790


Dear Mrs. Ryan:

I am not only an advocate of beauty and style but have also a great track-record as a Hairdresser spanning over 8 years. My experience speaks for itself in the form of my work and it is this enthusiasm that I wish to bring to Tangerine Salons.

I strive hard to provide clients with best hairdressing solutions so that they are satisfied with the end-product. By virtue of my communication skills, I endeavor to determine each client’s beauty goals and suggest styling procedures accordingly. My skills are not limited to hair styling and cutting as I have profound knowledge of skin care regimens with a special focus on rejuvenation and therapeutic procedures. I am also well-versed in mixing, storing and handling potentially hazardous chemicals such as perm lotions, ammonia and hair dyes in a safe manner.

With great insight of client needs assessment and meeting quality standards, I am positive that I have much potential to contribute to your salon. I would like to meet with you at your earliest to discuss my ability to make a meaningful contribution towards your goals.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
