    Hairdresser Skills assessment - Query

    Hi fliss Yeah my agent mentioned it could happen but she said it’s worth a try , we are going to Darwin in the Northern Territory, where are you hoping to end up ? Have you got family in oz? I struggled with the speaking every time! It seems crazy as I’m a native English girl but I just froze and my nerves got the better of me, got 7 and above In the other modules every time! Anyways 3rd time lucky I passed.

    Aww thankyou, yes there’s me my husband and 2 kids, we originally tried for the 190 but there not giving them out for some reason, they offered us the 489, then you can apply for pr after 2 years if you have stuck to the condition of the 489 visa, I know it’s cost us a fortune but I’m hoping it’ll be worth every penny

    Hairdresser Skills assessment - Query

    Hi , I did my skills assessment at the beginning of the year , I got asked things about , the 3 different stages of hair growth, about primary and secondary colours, how to do graduated bob step by step , how I would do full head foils , how I would handle a complaint, how I work with someone’s face shape , shampoo massage techniques, sterilising equipment, how to do a men’s scissor over comb , stock take ....... all things you learn when you start hairdressing to be honest , I used my old theory books and there is a thread on here somewhere that people wrote down questions they’d been asked. That was very helpful

    Hi, I think a lot depends on what visa you are applying for, ? We have just had invitation for 489 visa to apply for nt (hairdresser) , originally wanted the 190 permanent visa, but it seems they aren’t giving many of these out at the moment, Great about the ielts [emoji1360] The skills assessment is pretty straightforward, but just adds to the waiting game! We are estimating that by the time we get the visa granted (that’s if we do, fingers crossed) and enter the country it will be 2 years of a job [emoji51]

    This is such a shame, [emoji22] is the 187 a employer sponsored visa? And are you onshore or offshore?

    Hi brills33, It really is a long wait isn’t it, what visa route are you going down and where are you heading in oz? And have you got kids ? We applied for a 190 but have recently just been offered the 489 instead, but hey it’s a offer we’re not refusing, so we have just got to wait for the grant now

    Great thanks for been so informative, will be looking into lagoons, and the wave pool as my kids will love this including hubby! The ocean is a no go for swimming isn’t with the box jelly fish? And odd croc I’ve heard [emoji51] Going out early with the kids for food and a few drinks suits us just fine, great will look into Callum bay, and the casino , we all like a good pizza! Very excited, it’s gonna be a adventure if anything! Thanks for all your helpful tips, much appreciated

    Oh yeah we’ve done loads of internet searching but having not been there I was hoping to get helpful tips off people who lived there, Not our first choice but it’s the only state/Territory sponsoring my trade so it’s our only choice if we want to make Australia home! And as part of the visa conditions we have to live here for 2 year minimum, and then can move anywhere we please!

    Yes done all that ! Sorry do you live in Darwin/ Northern Territory I take it ? Can you give any advice on my questions or have you just jumped on my post to be sarcastic I was asking questions and hoping people who are loving in parts of the Northern Territory would comment and give tips, as sitting behind a screen and doing research is very different compared to someone who can give helpful tips who is living there on a day to day basis
