Headonist hair and beauty salon have teamed up with local charity Works For Us to offer the unemployed and those in low paid and low skilled jobs the opportunity to update their look and improve their employment prospects.
Works For Us clients will be models for Headonist apprentices and, under supervision, can have their style transformed with a free up to date cut, and new hair colour.
Vanessa Couzens, co-owner of Headonist, says – “how you look plays such an important role in how you feel about yourself. We see it every day with our clients – a new hairstyle can take years of a person’s age and if you feel good, you are more confident and outgoing. We’re delighted to be working with Works For Us and it’s a great opportunity for our apprentices to hone their skills on a wide range of clients”.
“It can be very daunting seeking a new job” says Janice Jones, office manager at Works For Us “and so much depends on your confidence. Our motto is “enabling people to transform their lives” and new skills provided by us and a new look from Headonist can really help our deserving clients to achieve their full potential”.
