Hairdressing is a profession that can span a lifetime and be full of variety. There are many challenges but ultimately, for a creative person, it is one of the most rewarding careers you can pursue.

A great way to start your career is by joining the team as a Saturday Assistant. This will give you a true idea of how the salon runs and what it takes to become a Kennadys Salon Assistant.

Your role will be fast paced, exciting and diverse, with tasks ranging from shampooing clients to helping the Art Team on a photo shoot. With a full day of NVQ Level 2 training every week we would expect you to complete your basic training within 24 months. However, training doesn’t stop there.

Once you have attained your NVQ you may be asked to join the Kennadys Graduate Programme. Your basic skills will be developed and you can further your techniques to meet Kennadys’ high standards. Our team of educators will test, stretch and encourage you to be the best by teaching you creative cutting, couture colouring and consultation to make all your clients look and feel fantastic.

The finale to the Kennadys Graduate Programme is your personal Graduate Test, an evening where you get to showcase to all your friends, family and colleagues your talents and skills as a fully-fledged stylist.

As a stylist at Kennadys you will have a plethora of opportunities open to you. Whether you want to focus on building a great clientele or work as a member of the Art Team at London Fashion Week, Kennadys will help and support you in achieving your dreams.

Opportunities for courses with hugely successful companies, such as L’Oreal, ensure that your talent and skills stay on trend with the latest techniques in hair design.

Kennadys is a lively, creative salon that is always looking for new talent. Could you be the next Nicky Clarke, Errol Douglas or Jo Hansford? We can’t wait to hear from you.
