What’s your experience of working in the hair industry been like? We know that the state of pay, conditions and qualifications is low compared with other trades. Hair stylists have been one of the lowest paid trades for generations, and nothing much has changed for the last few decades. We’re fighting to retain our penalty rates and entitlements. And at the same time, hair stylists are subject to unacceptable levels of bullying and harassment.
And nothing much will change, unless we are prepared to come together and create a movement, and speak out about the disrespect in the industry.
