What To Expect From A Professional Hair Stylist

The first hairdressers appeared in antiquity in the East. It was there that they began to attach importance to the hair connection with the other world and the spiritual world. In cases of illness, a hairdresser was called for cutting, shaving or firing curls. Thus, the spiritual essence was healed. This art was separated from the spiritual world in Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. The first hairdressing salons appeared here, where they not only cut their hair but created hairstyles based on the shape of their faces. Since 1163, hairdressers have been called barbers, who were also healers. In those days, they had basic knowledge of medicine. This lasted until 1416 when the treatment of hairdressers was banned due to an insufficient level of knowledge and integrity. Since the 18th century, the era of the decline of hairdressing. It lasted until the 19th century when in 1893 the world’s first hairdresser school in Chicago saw the light of day. In the 20th century, this area begins to develop rapidly. With the advent of the movie, all women turned to the masters, trying to inherit their favorite heroines. Hair dyes, curling irons, and more appear. In the 20th century, hairdressers entered a new stage of development, making the creation of hairstyles not just a haircut, but real artistry.

Modern Professional Hairdressers

The modern profession “hairdresser” covers a fairly large amount of knowledge and nuances of this craft. Depending on the field of activity, they can be divided into the following types:

Male master. This is a specialist in men’s haircuts and hairstyles. These masters know everything about the structure of hair and daily give them the necessary shape, emphasizing the oval of the face and masculinity of the wearers. Modern men’s haircuts require not only trimming hair but also dyeing, styling and care. New styles are in fashion that makes men more well-groomed.

Female master. This is a hairdresser specializing in hairstyles of the fair sex. The range of duties includes not only haircuts. These are dyeing, weaving, styling, curling, laminating and many other modern and fashionable hair treatments.

Colorist. This is a master of creating hairstyles using coloring curls. Such hairdressers will easily pick up your paint and the type of oxidizer to it. They will do highlighting, coloring, standard painting and much more. Current trends constantly

Specialist in weaving. This hairdresser is creating hairstyles using the method of creating braids. It can be dreadlocks, afro-braids, simple pigtails, etc. There are many techniques. Especially fashionable wedding and graduation complex hairstyles with weaving elements.

International hairdresser. These are the masters that most salons are looking for. The specialist understands both male and female haircuts, knows everything about the latest trends, easily creates an image by selecting hairstyles, knows how to create real masterpieces from clients’ hair. Any painting on his shoulder. All this he performs daily at his workplace.

Hairdressers work a lot with their hands. But in addition to knowledge of technology and practical skills, one of the main types of labor is creativity. After all, only a creative master will be able to create a new image by simply changing his hairstyle.

What you have to do at work and specialization The work of a hairdresser involves direct contact with the hair. Their daily responsibilities include:

Haircut. It can be both female and male hairstyles. They occur using tools that should be available for each master. There are techniques for a simple model haircut with thinning before completion. There is a haircut with hot tools, etc. All processes must be mastered to perfection.

Hair Styling. Modern hairdressing offers dozens of ways to shape curls. The most popular stand out among them: curling, straightening, styling with a hairdryer and diffuser, corrugation, styling with special means, etc.

Hair restoration. Restorative procedures include not only masks. This is lamination, keratinization, mesotherapy and much more. There are many modern procedures that a master hairdresser must perfectly master.

Weaving and creating hairstyles. A good hairdresser can not only work with her hair but also weave curls into bizarre and luxurious hairstyles. Here you can show your imagination and create a real masterpiece on the client’s head.

Hair coloring. There are many modern painting technologies. They are aimed not only at discoloration but also at the minimum damage. Various types of tinting, highlighting, coloring, discoloration, etc. The whole range of work should be in the arsenal of a good master.

Haircare. Curls are easily damaged, therefore, after cutting or coloring, they need careful care. The hairdresser must determine the type of hair and choose the right tool to care for them in the salon. To do this, use professional products.

Features of a professional hairdresser

Everyone who comes to the hair salon expects the hairdresser to meet his wildest expectations. No wonder, because according to the “our client, our master” principle, hair salon employees should be up to the challenge and perform the most sophisticated hairpin or haircut. Success in the form of a satisfied customer who wants to re-use the services of a given hairdresser consists not only of acquired skills and knowledge acquired during the hairdressing school but also several innate traits.

1. First, Talent

Don’t move without it. Even years of practice and education obtained at the best hairdressing schools will not replace innate talent. But what is talent? It is the ability to find such a solution that will perfectly suit the taste of a new customer, will perfectly match his style, and also, he will be perfectly matched to the facial features. This will ensure that a satisfied customer will happily return to the salon and will recommend it to friends.

2. Creativity And Imagination

A good hairdresser should also have a creative vision to create the most sophisticated hairstyles. Not every person who visits a salon knows what they want to change in their appearance, so a professional hairdresser should quickly come up with the right solution and describe it to the client graphically and encouragingly.

3. Ambition

Every valued hairdresser does not rest on his laurels and is constantly looking for new inspirations and development opportunities. This involves taking additional courses that will enable him to familiarize himself with current trends, allow him to deepen his knowledge and expand his skills with modern hairdressing techniques. There are many hairdressing training available on the market, during which, apart from being able to acquire the above mentioned skills and knowledge, hairdressers can also exchange experience.

4. Accuracy

Precision in this profession is extremely important. It is known for a long time that hurry is a bad advisor, so you should plan the time required to create a specific hairstyle. Carelessly pinned bun, which breaks down during the wedding, unevenly dyed or unevenly trimmed hair, can disappoint the client and arouse him many unpleasant emotions, and give the hairdresser many unflattering opinions.

5. Communication Skills

Highly developed interpersonal skills also play an important role in the hairdresser’s profession. He should not only try to best understand the client’s expectations but also skillfully describe what to expect after the visit. Besides, many people come to the salon not only to change something in their appearance but also to have a good time, so it’s worth the hairdresser to be able to have a nice conversation skilfully and tactfully. A person practicing this profession must also be open to all customer suggestions and be able to subtly discourage all tasteless solutions.

6. Ability To Work Under Time Pressure

It may seem that proper planning of a work schedule solves the problem of rush, but not everything can always be predicted. There are situations when during the haircut or modeling, the client changes his mind completely or is not satisfied with the effects so far. A professional hairdresser can skillfully reorganize planned activities and come up with a creative solution. This requires immediate action, because in many cases the time spent on serving a specific customer is strictly defined, and any delay completely interrupts the schedule of the day. Being able to work under time pressure is also associated with resistance to stress. You can’t panic, keep your mind calm and find a solution that will satisfy the customer.

Marisa (Sylvania)

Thank you Nicole and Capri for providing excellent service. I always leave Indossa happy with my hair colour/cut and I've been visiting the salon for ten years! There's always a good vibe and Nicole keeps up to date with the latest hair trends and products. I look forward to my next visit.

Ann (Kograh)

Nicole is the best cutter and colour expert in Sydney....hands down!

Anonymous (Menai)

I think Nicole is hands down the best Hair stylist, colourist, cutter I have ever been too! This is why I travel to and keep going back to her. Her warm manner with her clients makes you feel valued like family. While it costs me more to travel to go and see her, at this point I would not trust anyone else with my hair. In my opinion she is wonderful at what she does.

Michelle (Yass)

Always leave the salon feeling relaxed and happy in the hands of Nicole.A true Yogi.

Carole (Cronulla)

Nicole, not only are you a fantastic hairdresser but you're a beautiful person. Thank you for excellent service! x

Ann (Kograh Bay)

Nicole knows what she is doing and I trust her completely. When you have long hair and want to keep it a lot of other hair dressers just cut too much. Nicole knows how to cut and what to cut and the colour is amazing. Thank you Nicole.


I have been a client of Nicole's for 7 years. She has taken me from a blonde to a red and recently back to blonde again. Nicole looked after my hair during my time on 'So You Think You Can Dance', where I was constantly having my hair styled.

Chanelle Johnson

I never have any preconceived notions about how I am going to look on leaving Nicole's salon. I usually leave it up to Nicole to decide on what I am having. Never have I been disappointed, always fun, never dull and great results.

Toni (loyal client of 15 years)

Thank you Nicole Hudson for our fabulous hair @Indossa x

Yvonne Tozzi

Nicole, Thankyou for the follow up. I am delighted with my hair colour and cut, can’t stop raving about you and your salon. See you in about seven weeks.


My beauty and body secrets - I credit my hair colour to: “A few different people. I go to Nicole Hudson at Indossa in Cronulla, right near my house (she's very good with blondes), and sometimes I'll go to Valonz in Paddington. In New York I go to Sally Hershberger.”

Cheyenne Tozzi

Cannot thank you guys enough for the care and attention you gave me and my granddaughter River. My hair was a disaster when I walked in, but when I walked out it was amazing. So so happy. What an awesome result!!! Thanks so much Nicole 😁

Kelly-Elizabeth Rosman

I love, love, love my new hair. Nicole has done a beautiful job, she completely listened to me, couldn’t rate her more highly

Wendy Keene

Nicole Hudson and Capre are terrific. Nicole fixed a really bad hair cut and I could hardly recognise myself - in a good way. The salon is gorgeous as are the lovely staff. Good value for money as well.

Saeran Adams

In Cronulla for the weekend and came to the amazing Nicole Hudson for a trim and blow dry ... she is a magician xxx

Deb Deane

Had an absolutely amazing experience today at Nicole Hudson Hair. The ladies were extremely supportive, precise, and the results were fantastic. Never been happier!

Baleigh Gorman

Couldn't be happier, I took off about 8 inches of hair and was very nervous about the change but Nicole and her young apprentice were wonderful and made me forget about the nerves all together. Very well priced and great service, I couldn't recommend her enough.

Alix Forst

Amazing first time at the salon today and the cut and colour i am in love with thanks Nicole

Latisa Valerie Medic

Prior to seeing Nicole, I hadn't been able to grow my hair, it was really damaged and parts of my hair had snapped off. Since I have been coming here, (over 1.5 years), not only do I always leave with an amazing fresh blonde colour but my hair is healthy and has also grown so much. Nicole and Capre are amazing x

Paige McDonald

Nicole is a very special hairdresser who is upto date with the latest colour, products and style..My hair is always in great condition and my colour is always on point. Thank you Nicole for your passion & creativeness that you give to me x

Kathy Kalogiannis

So I reckon you know how good a hairdresser is by how your hair looks when u have to do it yourself. I love my hair and I can actually achieve a similar look 😬. Great cu colour and look!

Amanda Bailey

Nicole always works her magic!! A true professional !

Ronelle Adams

Nicole Watson

Nicole has been my stylist for years and I trust her completely with my hair! Her colours are beautiful and she always stays one step ahead with fresh ideas. I always leave feeling great!

Jo Wilton

Nicole has been doing my hair for nearly 15 years now, and has kept it beautiful through periods of high work stress, two pregnancies and an unfortunate over-reliance on my hair dryer. She doesn't mind me booting up the laptop to work away while she transforms my hair each time, and now my daughter loves coming with me to have her hair done by Capre.

Leonie Wilkinson

I was lucky to be squeezed in late on a Friday for a makeup appointment, and needed some shampoo/conditioner. The girls were lovely but the shampoo/conditioner is the first one I've used EVER that makes my hair look good dried naturally, no straightener. I thought I needed a keratin treatment but not anymore. Best conditioner ever.

Ally Mahoney

Nicole is honestly the best hairdresser that I have come across in such a long time. After moving to Sydney and testing and trying countless salons that honestly just destroyed my hair, I went and thought I would give Nicole's salon a try and she is honestly a miracle worker. I went in with orange/fluro yuck ends and she completely cleaned it up while maintaining my natural hair to create something beautiful!

Jaime-Lee Digby

So nice to finally find the amazing Nicole Hudson, the only woman who is able to actually do blondes to perfection!!! If you haven't already, book in today!!!!

Bilinda Turner

Nicole is by far the best hairdresser I've ever been to. I knew she had a lot of female customers and she is very popular among the girls with her world class designs, but guys, I've never felt so good after a hair cut. Not only this but the service, the atmosphere and the fact that she gets it right every time make me come from the Eastern Suburbs at least once a month. What a find! I have no hesitation in recommending this outstanding salon and it's charming and very talented owner to anyone. A true professional. I'm hooked.

Doc Martin

Where do I even begin to thank you for my AH-MAZING hair. Previous hairdressers just wouldn't get it right, I have never walked out of a salon and been happy with both the cut and colour ! You are extremely gifted, I am so happy my beautiful Aunty introduced you into my life lol!! Thank you Nicole!!!

Cathy Allotta
