REVEALED: Top 10 local hairdressers, as voted by you

WITH more than 400 votes, the South Burnett Times' People's Choice Awards for best hairdresser left those counting the votes pulling their hair out.

Thankfully there is plenty of great hairdressers across the region to assist them.

Second-in-charge at Amiches Hair on Haly St in Kingaroy, Tamika Jones, said a good hairdresser was someone who cared as much about the person as the quality of their work.

"It's important to listen to your client and guide them in the right direction," she said.

"You have to be honest with them."

Amiches Hair finished in a tie for fourth with Nanango salon Evolution Hair Studio in the South Burnett's People's Choice Awards.

Ms Jones, who has been with the Kingaroy business for 10 years, said there were many great things about being a hairdresser.

"The bonds you get to build with your clients and some of the work you can achieve," she said.

"The confidence you can give to people. It is all very rewarding."

As a hairdresser, the age of your clients can range from two right up to 102, and everyone in between.

"It can be hard work cutting little kid's hair," Ms Jones said.

"I find chatting with children helps and keeps them occupied.

"They love sitting in the car (chair)."

Initially being a very shy person, Ms Jones said hairdressing helped her come out of her shell.

"I have been able to grow myself being in this environment," she said.

Given every person has their own unique personality, hairdressers often get some strange requests.

"I once had a girl who wanted rainbow hair," Ms Jones said.

"They like to express themselves. I got excited to do it."
