Sample Hairdresser Cover Letter

If you are applying for a Hairdresser, Junior Hairdresser or Trainee Hairdresser position you should make sure that you enclose a well written cover letter with your  Hairdresser CV or resume.  A great way of knowing what to include in your hairdresser cover letter is to read and analyse the job advert you are replying to.  Most advertised vacancies will include a job description and person specification.  Make sure that you read these; that you have the skills required and that you clearly highlight them in either your cover letter or your Hairdresser CV / resume.

If you are sending out a speculative cover letter, find out as much as you can about the company.  This can give you insight into what you can include in your cover letter.

What should your Hairdresser cover letter contain?

The point of a cover letter is to introduce yourself and to get the reader to look at your CV or resume.  A good cover letter should grab the reader’s attention by highlighting your skills, qualities, experience and suitability for the job in 3 or 4 paragraphs.  It should make the reader interested enough to read your CV / resume for more details.

As a hairdresser you should be sociable, creative, a good communicator and able to work in a busy environment so your hairdresser cover letter should give examples of:

  • Experience and qualifications
  • Your communication and people skills
  • Examples of your creativity and flair
  • Knowledge of the industry and knowledge of latest practices
  • Knowledge of Health & Safety

Make sure your cover letter enhances your Hairdresser CV / resume by keeping it relevant and to the point.  Check it yourself, then get someone you trust to check it again for spelling and grammar.

Dear Ms Scissorhands

Vacant Post of Junior Hairdresser

I wish to apply for the position of Junior Hairdresser as advertised in the Anytown Gazette and on The Personal Development Cafe website.

As you can see from my enclosed CV, I have recently completed my Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship in Hairdressing for which I gained a Level 2 Diploma.

A requirement of the apprenticeship was to undertake work in a salon.  I successfully found my own placement with my local branch of Snippit and See where I was trained by members of your company.  Working with Snippit and See was really enjoyable and has further inspired me to pursue my goal of a successful career in the hair and beauty industry.

Having read the job description and person specification supplied, I am confident that I fill all the criteria required in that I:

  • Have successfully completed my apprenticeship and hold a Level 2 Diploma in Hairdressing
  • Have experience of cutting, washing and setting hair.
  • Am a good communicator, both written and verbal.
  • Enjoy working in a busy environment and am a good team and independent worker
  • Aware of Health & Safety and equality and diversity.

I am a very creative person with a passion for making a successful career in hairdressing, and having experienced working in a Snippit And See salon, am convinced that I can further my skills and make a positive contribution to your team if given the opportunity.

If you require any more information I would be happy to provide it and can be contacted either by telephone on the numbers on my CV or by email [email protected]

I am available for interviews at your convenience and hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
