Kara: “It's great to meet lots of people and be able to talk all day. People sometimes come in feeling down and we can make them feel better about themselves. It's my dream job and I've always wanted to do it.”

Rebecca: “Hairdressing gives you a chance to be a little bit creative. I've been hairdressing for a year and have been given good training. It's great to make people look and feel good for a living and I can't see myself doing anything else.”
