Using Essential Skills: On the Job with a Hairstylist (2010)

In this booklet, the authors focus on a typical day to explain how a hairstylist uses Essential Skills in her work.

The hairstylist begins her day by reading appointment schedules and client history cards, which are examples of document use. She relies on numeracy and reading skills to follow the instructions for measuring and mixing ingredients to prepare a colour treatment for a client.

The authors have included a section with questions that allow readers to assess how well their skills compare to those of an experienced hairstylist.
