Personally, I think it sounds a bit drastic. You'll have to wash hair for 2 years with 18yr olds, and the apprentice wage isn't great either, especially if your planning a wedding.

You go girl, if it is something you really want to do you should go for it. Make sure you think about it first though.

Definitely go for it. Lots of money in it when you are qualifed AND you can choose your own hours, work from home, travel around. AND you're guaranteed work. I get my hair done every 5-6 weeks and the girl who does my hair says shes in a routine now that she nearly knows when to expect my text. She charges me about EUR70 for about 2 hours work. Then she heads off some where else to do more. Somtimes she does three heads in my house. AND IT'S TAX FREE :o)ll (Well under the table of course)
