I created Hailey the Hairdresser as part of my Canadian Trades/Professions Character Challenge. Hairdressers are a very important profession in Canada because we love taking care of ourselves and we love to look good.
Hailey the Hairdresser works very hard and is so proud of the fact that she was able to open her own salon. That was always her dream.
Being a hairdresser is a very rewarding career for anyone who works hard and is ambitious. Not all hairdressers own their own salons but it would be an avenue to explore if you were business savvy.
Hailey the Hairdresser brings her love of people to Storyland. She helps people out as much as she can and she never asks for anything in return. I feel Hailey the Hairdresser is important because she shows how hard work can pay off. She also shows how good it feels to help people in need. My goal for Hailey the Hairdresser is to help others to understand how good it can feel to help others in need and not expect anything in return.
