“Would u help me…….?” Ten minutes later…. “Would you help me……?”Seriously, I love doing what my employer asked me to do rather than sitting in the staff room and listening to my I-POD! I was working in a hair salon in Dorking for work experience. The first few days it was quite boring as there were only a few clients. But until Thursday and Friday my work experience became interesting! My work was mainly based on shampooing, serving the clients with tea or coffee, washing the towels, folding the towels, watching cups etc. After chatting with the stylist in the hair salon, I realized that most of them are younger than me! I was very surprise as they were already working in the society when they were only 17 years old .Actually I admired them a lot as they are capable in looking after themselves and also looking after me! I learnt different skills in communicating with different kind of people as different kind of people have different characteristics. I am interested in shampooing as you have to be very skilful so that the water won’t leak everywhere and you have to make the client feeling comfortable. I noticed that you have to gain the trust from the client for washing their hair. I remember that when they first saw me they were worrying about their hair. They worried that I wouldn’t be capable to wash their hair properly. I could see this from they eye sight when they first saw me. But then at the end what they told me were “You have done a great job” or” You are brilliant”. At that time, I felt really happy .I have learnt that if I put an effort in doing something, I will get something back at the end. I spent 2 days in observing how to wash client’s hair and the effort which I put during the 2 days helped me to gain trust from the customers and have built up my confidence. I have learnt to be on time and be responsible during the work experience but overall the most important key to success is you must have a sense of humour...
