A true hair stylist is equal parts artist and psychologist. You’ll need to be outgoing and able to strike up a conversation with just about anyone to be successful in a hairstylist career. Hairstylists stand nearly all day, so you’ll need to be physically able to perform the job. Hairstylist roles can be demanding, as you’ll be cutting, blowdrying, trimming, styling and washing hair all day long, so the ability to multitask will be important.
