We offer two opportunities to get amazing hair for free at Lily Jackson Hairdressing:

  1. Be a model for qualified stylists who are performing a trial with us before we consider them for employment.
  2. Be a model for a Lily Jackson Hair and Makeup photo or video shoot.

Read on for a full explanation of the pros and cons of each option.

1. Be a model for qualified stylists who are trialling with us

Our cultural foundation is build on our passion for customer service excellence and technical brilliance.  There are so many bad to average hairdressers out there giving the industry a poor image.  To join us, prospective employees need to prove to us that have what it takes to WOW our customers.  So we get them to perform trials with us after we’ve interviewed them and viewed their portfolio.

There is no charge for this service irrespective of whether you have colour.  This service does not cover colour correction (fixing botched colours from other hairdressers or supermarket box colour).

These trials can take place any day and you can be guaranteed of amazing hair.

Pros:

  • Incredibly beautiful hair that is free.
  • Qualified stylists are looking to impress us with their work. We’ve pre-vetted them so expected to be WOW’ed.  The only reason we wouldn’t hire them is a cultural fit issue (which is a big priority for us).
  • All colour work is verified with the Director before it takes place.  So we ensure that at all times, the correct products to achieve the desired outcomes are being used.
  • You get to try before you buy hairdresser for free! You get what you asked for (within the confines of the time allocated for the appointment).

Cons:

  • It’s a once off service.
  • Doesn’t happen that often.
  • First in – best dressed.

2. Become a model for a collection photo shoot

A few times per year we hold photo shoots to create a photographic collection for use in our promotions. We typically have a theme or a number of looks we are creating and therefore seek out models who have a particular look.  As these shoots often have specific requirements we will ask you to send us a selfie of your current hair after you register so that we have it on file and can refer to it at the times of the shoots.

These collections are shot by a professional photographer and photos of you are available to you at no charge.  These are ideal images for budding models looking to create a look book.

Pros:

  • Incredibly beautiful and creative hair and makeup that is free.
  • Professionally shot images that you get to keep.

Cons:

  • Some collections might require models to have creative colour.  It won’t be gaudy or trashy but it will definitely be striking.
  • Takes place only a couple of times per year and you may not have the type of hair or the look we need for the shoot.
  • You will need to be available to have your hairstyle created on one day and be available for the actual photo shoot on another day.
  • You need to feel comfortable about us using the images in our marketing – you will have to sign a model release form prior to being accepted.
