Hi lisa, wonder if you could help me, i am hopefully moving to the sunshine coast next year, i currently run my own salon. I hope to find a managers job in Aus but I hve never done my level three, does that matter - will it hold me back?? By the time i get to the sunshine coast i will have a Wella Master Colour Award which is equivelent to a level 3 and 4. Also can you tell me what brand of hair extensions are popular over there. I am thinking of doing a hair extensions course. Also - have you had your business valued yet. Is it the business you will be selling or the actualy premesis as well. Hope you can help me

yes thats true but no disrespect to the aussies but their training is very different from ours and trying to find good honest quality staff is nothing other than a nightmare like trying to find a needle in a haystack. As for making money if i did the hours i do, for someone else, id be earning a fortune but i really do understand what you mean its just really hard work. i had a salon in uk for 10yrs and it was much easier. if i had my time again i would have waited and settled in first and felt my feet a bit more first but im relocating to spend more time with my kids thats why i came here not to work my butt off.
speak soon

Hi jan,

I wonder if you can help me. I am in the middle of completing the tra form, i am self employed. In section 5 Employment history,it ask you to list all relevant employment since leaving school, do i only mention the hairdressing employment, or all jobs i have done? Alsoit asks you to attach statements from employers stating all tools etc that you have used, do they mean scissors and hairdryer? What did you put?

Good luck with your move.

Hi I am hoping to move to Brisbane early next year I am level 3 qualified and am also going through my introduction to teaching course right now. I am over 30 working in an Aveda Spa salon as a senior stylist/manager. Do you find that in oz just like in the uk its hard to get a job cause you are over 18, this is one of the worries I have about moving as people have tried to put me off by telling me I will find it hard to find work, even though I am also told oz is screaming out for hairdressers.?

Hi sorry to but in but I have just had my TRA application approved and I had a period of self employment in it, you didnt say if you were going via an agent? be verry carefull the TRA form is not easy, I included pictures of clients before and after and explained EXACTLY how I had achieved the look and when I listed my tools I wrote out exactly what I used them for even down to foils and clips, if you want any more info just ask.

Default Help - I Want to be an OZ hairdresser

Hi everyone

I have a dilema that i hope someone can help me with. I am at the very early stages of looking into the visa issues surrounding immigration to Perth. My family is migrating to Perth but because of my age, over 18, i cant be added to their visa. I believe my only option is to apply for myself on a student visa and try to work everything out so that i travel with my family when they leave for OZ. They wont leave without me! I intend to live with my family whilst doing the course and then apply for residence in my own rite etc - if that all makes sense.

Does anyone know of any hairdressing training centres/colleges etc in Perth -(huge huge places i know), that accept international students.

How much it costs?
How long the training must be for to satisfy immigration etc?
What are the academic entry requirements to enrol on a course?

If anyone has been through this situation or can help, or direct me to someone who can, please please please do.

i want to help having gone thru the immigration process for permanent residence as a hairdresser. The first process is getting your trade assessed by trades recognition australia,they require 6 yrs of training and work experiance. I dont want to put a downa on everything, but perhaps you could do the hair course and get a salon to sponsor you on a recurring temporary visa until you have 6 yrs and then apply for p.r

Thanks Mandrew

It sounds like you applied already having the qualification before you went to OZ. I think you may have misunderstood my quierie. I dont have a trade to be assessed by TRA. I was enquiring about applying for a student visa to get the hairdressing trade in OZ and what this entails. I was under the impression that immigration wave the ruling on the length of training required if you have an Australian Qualification and this was done for 2 years? God i hope its not 6 years!!!!!

can any one please clarify this and the questions from my other post

Going back to your earlier question, I arrived late last year at the grand old age of 45. I have been for 2 jobs and been offered them both. They love people with experience here and are not as ageist as in the UK.
