But my husband earns well, so no stress to be a big earner. I dont know about coming over with 6 kids, phew. We have permanent residency and that means the state helps you with certain things, I dont know what you would be entitled to if you are sponsored for your job. Things are much more expensive here than we anticipated, dont know if we would ever be able to afford a house in Sydney, but we love it. The Aussies are less obsessed with climbing the ladder and collecting material stuff, they definitely have the work life balance right. Please do your homework before getting everybody's hopes up, it might be a difficult road. All the best.
thanks for replying to my message,I now know that hairdressers are off the list so I am giong over in April to go ronud as many salons as I can to see if I can get sponsership so here's praying I,ll keep you posted and if you Know of any please let me know thanks,Joanne

We love Irish & English hairdressers, it is harder now with Visa's and thats because hairdressing was on the shortage list and then deregulated over here relaxing the standards. What happened was all these dodgy private hairdressing schools opened for international students to qualify in a year. It worked both ways the studends use it as a way to gain residency as they never intended on working as hairdressers just wanted a way in and these colleges just wanted $$$$ and never intended on a training standed.... this distroyed the industry as Salons hiring the very few students that went into hairdressing (from dodgy college) qualified, notice there really were not trained and recruiting became a hit and miss. more of a hit to your business. Now a few years on its a massive divide, most salons are very very dodgy not paying properly with crap hairdressing standard, unable to keep staff, renting chairs out causing inhouse problems between hairdressers fighting over clients..... Or you have really good salons but they are only in higher class suburbs like Paddington, Double Bay.. those areas.. I loved hairdressing when I was in Perth its completely different over there, good boss, high level of training, honest and hard working but in Sydney its horrible.... I put the scissors down and changed career got more money and less stress. All I can say for Australia's hairdressing industry is What a shame.

Hi everyone. New to site and v excited that I have found it! Im just wondering how aus goes for barbers? I am a nvq2 hairdresser qualified 9years ago but have spent the last five years as a barber and now manage a city centre barbers. I think I would be nervous to go back to woman's hair if barbering wasn't an option for me. I was a good hairdresser but it's been a while! Does anyone know of any barbers on gold coast or perhaps some words of comfort if I am plunged back into a salon! Thanks guys x hope your Aussie adventure is going great xxx

Hi there, Barbers are in demand here aswell you would not find it hard at all to get work on the Gold Coast as a barber, they actually get paid more than unisex hairdressers I find, I see the jobs ads all the time as $1000 perweek but normally its rated on speed and alot do 15 min appointment. Even if you went back to a salon doing womens you would pick it up in no time, I left the industry for 9 years then went back and the hairdressers ask me colour tech questions.. nothing has changed just a heap more brands (I mean too many) however the basics are always the same.

Hey Kate! it's really hard to set up here in in Australia, you need some skills to get visa easily and job too, yay!
once you got skills in many profession then you don't need to worry about it!

You need to start with a good read of www.immi.gov.au to see if you qualify for a visa

Does anyone know how the work experience is proven? Is it references? Or?

Can working part time whilst studying count towards work experience? Can the work you do in the salons in Australia count towards your work experience?

Default Hourly wage for 6 year hair stylist?

Hi,

I have 6 years experience and I'm currently awaiting responses from hairdressers in Australia after handing in my résumé. Just as a brief guideline I'm looking for how much per hour I should ask for/settle on? I am in Sydney.

Thanks
Joy
