Dear Ms. Harrell,
I would love to join the team at Salon Ja’Pho as your newest hairdresser. I have seen some of the stylistic work your hairdressers have done while attending shows and competitions and I am highly impressed. My skills are on par with the work your salon does, as I am very artistic and have a great sense of fashion along with my cosmetology license.
I keep up-to-date with all of the latest trends in hair and constantly learn new techniques to improve my practice. I have a long list of committed clients who will follow me to any new salon, so I could bring a full book of business with me to Salon Ja’Pho. My hairdressing stylings have won numerous industry competitions and have been featured in hairdressing magazines.
I know how to use many different colorist techniques and understand all hair types. I work hard with each customer to determine the best cut and color to complement their individual face shape and hair type. I have a fabulously outgoing personality and love to make customers laugh.
I am a terrific hairdresser as I’m sure you will agree. I have attached a portfolio showcasing my work. Please call soon for an interview.

Dear Ms Jones
Re: Hairdressing position
Please accept my application for the role of full-time hairdresser as advertised recently on seek.com.au.
I have a Certificate IV in Hairdressing from Launceston TAFE and am currently completing a Diploma of Hairdressing Salon Management. I have over six years experience within the industry and my professional skills include hair care and styling, business operations, sales, training, cosmetics and color mixing. I have performed haircuts and styles on men, women and children.
I won the Launceston Hair and Flair Awards three times and was named NSW Hairdressing Apprentice of the Year in 2002. I was awarded second place in the Australia-wide Cutting Edge Competition in 2006 and have received two commendations in other years. For your interest I have included photos of the styles for which I have won awards.
I am creative, artistic, a quick thinker and ambitious with a strong work ethic and have exceptional interpersonal skills. I am excited at the prospect of joining the stylish hair team and believe my skills and attitude can make a significant contribution.
I look forward to meeting with you and discussing this opportunity further.
