Tasmania is struggling with a shortage of hairdressers, according to Executive Officer of Hair and Beauty Tasmania, Robert Mallet.
Mr Mallet attended the Hair Expo in Melbourne over the weekend, to encourage interstate hairdressers to move and take up the tradie in Tasmania.
He says that the shortage comes from less people taking up apprenticeships, and salons ‘pinching staff’ from rival salons.
Brian Carlton speaks to Mr Mallet about the hairdresser shortage and what is being done to address the issue.
