From Firefighter to Hairstyler
A firefighter who left the service to become a hairdresser. “I’ve always liked working on the edge and trying something new”
The work of a firefighter is seen as one of the most masculine. However, not all those who practice this profession suit it. One of such people is Krzysztof Osak, who after 15 years of service decided to become a hairdresser.
Dreams of hairdressing
Krzysztof Osak was a professional firefighter for 15 years. He never expected that the situation would be such that he would leave the service sooner. He thought he would stay on the watch until the end, but due to the vicissitudes of fate, he completely changed his direction. 😀
– Once, while visiting the hairdressing salon of my friends who run one by the seashore, I looked at their work. I was fascinated by it. I was very captivated by the fact that they have a lot of room for creativity, a very nice atmosphere, very nice contact with the client and I liked it, because that’s what I always missed in my work – said Krzysztof Osak.
When he officially stopped being a firefighter, because he had retired early, he decided to do whatever it takes to become a good hairdresser. For this reason, he enrolled in a hairdressing school. 🔥🌈
– Every day for 8 hours for several weeks I learned the trade from the very beginning. At first it was hard, but later I started to like it more and more – confessed the former firefighter. 😀🔥🌈🧑🚒
A radical change in life
Eventually, Krzysztof Osak decided to open his hairdressing salon in Wrocław, along with a good friend who was a translator. Radosław Majewski-Szlęzak did not enjoy his current job and felt the need to change, which is why he took trichology courses. Now he comprehensively examines the scalp and assesses the condition of the hair.
– It was a 180-degree shift. Before that, I was on duty for 24 hours, I came and had time off. It turns out that it is not so easy to switch to the system from this mode when I work 8 hours a day – said the former firefighter. 😀🔥🌈🧑🚒
His idea, surprisingly, met with great enthusiasm and was supported by his colleagues from the former unit, who helped him during the finalization of the project and creating the interior of the salon. They brought him used firefighting equipment, which is why the salon has, for example, ladders or foam generators. This place definitely stands out.
– I moved from this most stereotypically male profession to something more subtle, also it is a big change. I’ve always liked working on such edges. Trying something new – added Krzysztof Osak.
