UNITED KINGDOM – 3 Apr, 2017 – According to HABIA (The Hairdressing and Beauty Authority UK) there are approximately 40,000 hair salons in the UK today. The 2016 Industry Statistics for Hairdressing states that there are 270,000 people working in the industry and of that figure, half of the people working in hair salons are within the age group of 16 to 24 years old. That makes hairdressing fiercely competitive and it’s most definitely a growing industry.
The industry itself generates £7 billion a year but of that figure, it’s the cream of the crop who really drive the industry forwards and feature the top-earners. According to The Guardian newspaper, the most successful hairdressers may even earn more than top barristers (so says Ray Seymour of The National Hairdressers Federation) earning at least £100,000+. With top stylists now earning £50,000+ hairdressing shouldn’t be perceived as a poorly paid trade. In fact, the potential is huge if one is prepared to work hard, learn the skills of the trade from a reputable salon and not be afraid of undertaking very menial tasks!
However, while top stylists can enjoy large wage packets, junior stylists just starting out can expect to earn approximately £16,000 per year which is barely the UK’s minimum wage. The rewards in the future could well pay-off if a passionate and ambitious hair stylist does want to make it to the top of the hairdressing tree. The problem is, there are thousands of hair stylists competing for top jobs, to take part in hair shows and catwalk shows and even to get a foot in the door at renowned celebrity hairdresser salons. It’s a hard hairdressing world.
