Hairdressing group is one of the biggest apprenticeship employers in Leicester

George’s Hairdressing has been consistently inspiring ladies and gentlemen of Leicestershire for 45 years.

To help those inspired achieve their dreams, George’s Hairdressing runs a 25-month apprenticeship scheme with Leicester College.

The apprentices are based full-time in the salon with hands-on learning but have the support of the college when it comes to the theory work. At George’s Hairdressing there are currently 25 apprentices across four salons which includes their sister salon at London Rd Hair. The George’s salons can be found in Oadby, on Granby Street, Allandale Road.

The apprentices receive training from both the internal team at the salon and from external sources, with the opportunity to go on specialist colour degree training. George’s is part of the L’Oréal Professionnel Portfolio which is an exclusive group of top British Hairdressers recognised for creativity, expertise, technical skills and artistic flair. All apprentices from George’s will undergo L’Oréal training to reach the same standard of professional hairdressing.

The salons have been employing apprentices for the whole 45 years they have been open. One former apprentice from George’s is renowned Celebrity Hairdresser Chris Appleton. After graduating in 2000, Chris has gone on to work and live in Hollywood with some big celebrity clients such as Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez.

Current apprentice Abbey Hyde from George’s’ Allandale Road salon has said she chose George’s Hairdressing because she:

“Knew their training was one of the best in the city, it was recommended to me by a few people. The academy is run like a salon, the trainers are there on hand to help you. I love being a stylist for the day!”

Katie Katon, the Salon Director, has said:

“We will never say no to helping people achieve their dreams, we’re always willing to invest in our employees and fully encourage other businesses to create a path for apprentices to pursue, it has clearly worked for us here at George’s.”
