                Hairdressers often advertise vacancies in their own shop windows, so
                    it may be worth your while having a search along your local high
                  streets for such advertisements. They are also quite used to people
                 going into their salons & enquiring about vacancies. If you want to try
                  this, DO make sure you look as stylish as possible and pick a quiet
                time when a salon owner could happily pause to chat to Chic Creative
                You! If they say they do not have any vacancies, ask them if they have
                   any contacts in the hairdressing world that might want to employ a
                       keen quick learner- above all else employers appear to value
                                          enthusiasm & initiative.
