Introducing You to OPEN Hairdressing Hemel’s Outstanding Apprentice Kane Amos

OPEN been as fun and exciting as I imagined!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your role at OPEN Hairdressing 

I am a hairdressing apprentice at OPEN Hairdressing Hemel Hempstead. Previously, I used to play football full-time at college, but I had always interested in fashion and hair. I decided to leave football and begin working at OPEN Hairdressing Berkhamsted. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, thanks to the team and clients. I’m improving both my abilities as a trainee hairdresser and customer service skills. Above all, I’m prepared to work my hardest. 

I decided to join OPEN because they fulfilled exactly what they said the training would involve on the salon floor. It’s been as fun and exciting as I imagined it would be. What’s more is that I never get bored – there’s always something going on! 

What skills are you currently working on? 

I’m working on layering with the cutting side of the training and highlighting on colour days. I’ve already covered many of key techniques and the senior stylists have made the learning experience fun and professional. It can sometimes take me a little longer to complete a task than others, but the teachers are patient and assist me as best as they can.

What do you enjoy most about working at OPEN Hairdressing? 

There isn’t one thing in particular that I enjoy the most because I enjoy OPEN in different ways. Whether I’m washing hair, talking to clients or cutting hair myself, I enjoy it all and look forward to learning more every day. 

What are your future goals? 

I’m hoping to qualify so that I can work alongside some amazing hairdressers and friends at OPEN Hairdressing. I feel like everyone helps each other so much and I’m constantly listening to the advice from those who are more experienced in the field. I know they have been in my position and know what I need to do so I can become the best that I can be. And don’t forget you can see what we’re up to by following us on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
