To determine whether your work evidence meets the requirements of the skills assessment we recommend you review the following:

Practical skills demonstrations

We are able to offer the option of an onsite technical interview with practical skills demonstration, for onshore applicants.

You will need to supply your own basic Hairdresser Kit consisting of:

  • eye protection (goggles)
  • apron
  • appropriate foot wear (closed toed shoes)
  • hairdryer
  • tail comb
  • cutting comb
  • gloves
  • all brushes required
  • all cutting tools required
  • sectioning clips.

You should also bring your portfolio of work.

Models are arranged on a case by case evaluation of each applicant.

  • The more portfolio evidence you provide reduces the practicals needed.
  • Please arrange a minimum of two models for practical demonstration for one day.
  • If you are unable to find your own models please notify us 2 weeks prior to the practical assessment date, we can access our database of clients to arrange models.
  • For any local applicants who are working in Perth and surrounding areas, we can arrange for work place assessments to be undertaken at their workplace.
