Future Hairdressing Apprentice

Hi Curlies!

I have an unusual request. I have (after much thought) decided on a career change to begin a hairdressing apprenticeship.
I have been a devoted curly for upwards of five years now, and it's something that I think about constantly; I love discussing it.
So my question is: who in Sydney do you trust with your curly hair? I know that when I'm studying at TAFE it will mostly be straight hair that I'll be working with, so I would really like to learn the ropes as an apprentice to someone who knows curls.
I would love your thoughts, about salons and otherwise!

    Not in Sydney so can't help, but just wanted to wish you well. Learn the curly ropes and I'm sure you'll build up a good client base - good curly hairdressers are few and far between (as I'm sure you know).

    Thanks Starmie! I certainly do know. It's so frustrating that the US has DevaChan and Ouidad among others. Aussie hairdressers are missing out on a good thing!

    Hi a curly q, have you posted this on the Aussie Curly Girls Facebook group? You might get more responses there. Best of luck, I commend you on a noble vocation, servicing us curlies!
