Why I chose to do an apprenticeship Is because it is the best way to learn all the tricks of the trade in hairdresser, and it opens so many doors for a young inspiring apprentice. I you can create Any looks you want it gives you the freedom in a salon, not only do you learn off the older generation But a young apprentice can also learn the older generation New ans modern tricks, I would highly Recommend an apprenticeship To anyone who wants to join the hairdressing or barbering industry. Ysalon has pushed me to my best and I am so grateful For everything they have teach to And shown me.
