There are academies where beauticians and hairdressers are sent to learn about products or to reach a higher level. They always need models for the tutors and students to work on. Some places require a small fee, other places will actually give you products in return for your time. Also look out for notices in your local hairdressers’ window also, as many will have regular model days.
