  1. Hi all, I'm new to poms in Oz and have been searching the forums to find a recent hairdresser thread. I have just sent off my skills assessment to Vetassess after a lot of work and stress getting it all together, feeling relieved now that it has gone but now worrying in case I have missed anything or haven't provided something very important! Any other hairdressers or tradies out there that are currently going through this? And does anyone know of current vetassess wait times and what is involved for a positive assessment and technical interview? Thanks in advance Vicki.
  2. Hi im David, im new on here! Im a barber, qualified and over /0 years experience, would I be able to pass the Hairdressing vesassess test? Looks really difficult!
  3. Hi All, I am currently investigating applying for my Skills Assessment as a Hairdresser to then apply for a 176 SS Visa. I have been working as a Self Employed Mobile Hairdresser for 10 years now and am finding it hard to gather all the required documentation they want for the Skills assessment. I have a client base of over 100 people and have built up my business through word of mouth mainly. Has anyone else applied in the same situation?? And what evidence did you provide?? HELP!! Thanks:biggrin: Emma x
  4. To all the hairdressers out there please help. Ever since starting to apply for our 190 state notminated skilled visa for NT. All I have been thinking about is the practical test and it is stressing me out think because it is all on me can’t sleep it’s going over in my head trying to think what to expect I’v been self employed 12 years and never really done any tests apart from the odd course I have been doing mostly beauty for the last 6 years however to get in I have to use my hairdressing qualifications. I am waiting to here back after submitting paper work then on to the dreaded practical if I pass after paper work part. I’m already going over hairdressing to refresh my memory. Can anyone give me any advice on the practical? Did anyone get the questions below these are what I’m going to be asked about? Also I’v never done chemical straightening I have done it in salon but not qualified I also have done barbering but only basics on beards and moustaches. So I am now panicking I’m going to fail on this part. Anyone else been in this dilemma? I have read some previous threads but we’re off a little while ago so I’m looking for advise on more recent please. Wish it was a practical would be so much easier.
  5. Hey any qualified hairdressers in Darwin at the minute looking for a casual hairdressing job. We are very flexible if you only want to stay in darwin for a few months or weeks that's OK. But mainly needing someone for the month of December/January You can pm me here. Thanks
  6. Hello!!! I am currently in the process of organising my skills assessment with VETASSESS (the assessing body for hairdressing here in Oz)... I have a Cert III in Hairdressing (Oz qualification) now. Was wondering if anyone has done a skills assessment recently?? I'm unsure what documents I need, do I need to supply ALL of my payslips or just an example from employers to prove full time employment?? Any help would be so much appreciated! Very stressful!!
  7. Hey guys, At this moment I am trying to make sense like everybody else about all the visa changes. I was wondered if somebody has a bit information about the following. As we all know hairdressing has gone to the short skilled list. My employer was going to sponsor me for a 457. But because of the recent changes and no outlook on a PR. we are deciding to go for a Direct entry 186 instead. I have only 3 months left on my study visa now. And with all of the extra requirement like extra skills assessments I has a very little time frame to collect this all as well. I would apply for the 186 in September 2017. They say that a 186 takes about a year to process. So what happens in march 2018 as they not allow the short skilled list for direct entry 186 Anymore. Does anybody has any idea about this ? I try to call immigration the other day but was unsuccessful to get anybody on the line. And did anybody completed a TRA and a extra prl in less then 3 months ?? Love to read your comments! Thanks

Also if anybody could help and advise on which visa ect I would be very grateful Hope we to hear from you guys soon
  9. Am I out of touch .....went to book myself in for a hair cut and the hairdresser tapped away on her calculator and said total treatment with conditioner and root colour:chatterbox: would be $310 dollars - errr no thanks. Now my 14 year old daughter has a party she is going to on Saturday night and wants her hair cut Saturday morning. Really don't want to spend the earth as she is only a teenager - anyone know of any reasonable hairdressers (maybe walk in ones) that could do a wash and cut for reasonable price for teenage girl in above areas ..... Cheers Sulac
  10. Hi My partner is a hairdresser and has a company interested in sponsoring her. It's in a regional area so RSMS 187 visa is an option. As is a 457. I know a skills assessment is not needed for the 457, but I'm a bit confused as to whether one is needed for a hairdresser applying for a 187. Does anyone have the answer? The processing time for the 187 looks better, but not if a skills assessment is required. They want her to start ASAP. Thanks Joe

  17. Hi folks, I'm in the process of applying for a skills visa to take me, my partner and our two young children from the UK to Auz. I have successfully applied for my TRA and completed my IELTS exam but my emigration agent is now, after all this time and expense, voicing concerns because I work mainly as a Hairdressing Lecturer at my local college rather than as an in-salon Hairdresser. I'm getting incredibly frustrated. Is my agent being overly cautious or is he right to be concerned? I thought that having had my skills verified by TRA this wouldn't be an issue. Any advice or shared experiences would be most very welcome. Many thanks, Wheezee x
  18. Hi Everyone :smile:... Have managed to gather a fair bit of information in the last few weeks/months due to some great contributions here....thank you all for a fantastic forum. Partner & I have decided to try and go it alone without an agent and save some $$ :unsure:. I am a qualified electrician of 18 years but do not meet the current employment criteria having not worked full time in the trade for 4-5 years, due to this and my age (42) we are hoping to emigrate via my partners trade to WA on a SS,she is a hairdresser. We are currently filling in the TRA skills assessment application form and are a bit confused ,if anybody can help on a few points I would be very grateful : 1) TRA application time - Approximately how long are we looking at before TRA assessment ? We are hoping to try and apply for visa before July but realise it could be too late for that deadline. 2) Employment History - Partner has 16 years experience, been in current salon for 8 years. For the previous two years her weekly hours are approx 23 hrs,will these hours count as part-time or full time ? She has had maternity leave - will this matter ? 3) Qualifications - Qualified to NVQ level 2,currently studying for NVQ 3 - is this a problem ? 4) Work history - Does the work history description have to be in-depth and include her complete career or just current employment ? 5) References - Do these have to be in depth and does anybody have any templates which we could show to her boss ? 6) TRA Assessment - any advice on where / how this is taken and what the procedure is ? Sorry for the long post but it seems to get more confusing the more we read...... Thanks in advance for any help :smile: 2by2
  19. :unsure:Seems that we have now tried every single avenue, that would get us into Oz.... apart from one. I could get fast-tracked into Oz - if I agree to go straight into training as a hairdresser! What do you all think?? Is it really feasible that after having a career, and four kids, that I could start again?? It really is our only way... so obviously we have to consider it. I would be training for 20 months, out of the first two years, at the end of which time, I would hopefully be qualified. In that time, hubby would look after the kids, and we could both work up to 20 hours each week. I have always been a Legal Secretary, or a Radio Sales Manager.... hairdressing??? Could I do it? I asked a friend today, who is also aged 42, and she said that there is sooooooo much more to hairdressing now, that I should really think hard about it! Help! That was not what I wanted to hear! That said htough, I would rather honesty - every time - than being fed sh*t! Take your shots here, guys... You have always helped, with every little crisis/question/comment... so, go on, let me know what your opinion is. Whether you are here, or already in Oz (then you could tell me whether they really need hairdressers!!) let me know your opinion. Have a great weekend all of you. Love, Andrea x x x :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

    Mobile HAirdresser in Canberra

    Hi all, My family and I will be living in Belconnen from 26th November 2011. I will be starting my own mobile hairdressing business 'The Hair House' and hope to attract some new customers from this web site. I have heard the prices are very expensive in Canberra and some people have even had to travel 20 miles to find a hairdresser! I will offer a reliable and professional service and will be undercutting the salons, I can also offer Indian Head MAssage. I currently work mobile in the UK and teach at a local college of FE. I do hope to meet some of you soon. Many thanks Judith:biggrin:
  21. Hi All, Well, finally got here and been here 3 weeks now. OH due to start work on Tuesday and will be looking to build a clientele. He's a fantastic hairdresser from the UK, trained at Vidal Sassoon, had his own business for over 10 years, and worked/taught for L'Oreal, Wella and Sebastian, both in the UK and in their international art teams. He will now be working for Oscar Oscar at Indooroopilly, and his name is Anton, so if any of you are looking for a new hairdresser, give him a try. I am sure you wont be disappointed. I hear its hard to find a decent hairdresser here when you are used to UK trained hairdressers. Cheers Shaz

  25. Hi there I don't know if anyone can help. My partner & I are looking to move to WA next year. Our original plan is to go on a 457 visa as he may have (not confirmed as of yet) sponsorship through a farm. However if this does not work we are trying to look at all our avenues & wondered if my hairdressing skills would come under any of the visas. I currently hold a level 2 & I am doing my NVQ level 3, is this enough to get a job in WA & are the recognised there or do I have to do something when I get there or before I go???? Can anyone help with this, I haven't been able to find much advice on the net so far :unsure:
