Currently, the focus of the hairdressing industry is quality, and the highest priority is customer satisfaction with the need to provide the highest levels of technical skill and hospitality. Also, because the hairdressing industry, a service industry, is based on personal interactions, education has become a vital issue for the improvement of the industry's quality. I believe that it is necessary to continually develop high quality education where hairdressing training takes place. My studies

Of the expected abilities of educators in hairdressing training, the ability to provide instruction and to evaluate education is important. The educator must be able to judge the effectiveness of the education and instruction quickly, to determine how a given learner should be instructed, and to put in place appropriate education and instruction. To this end, how to evaluate the motivation, attitude, and ability of inexperienced or unskilled learners for technical mastery is important. From such evaluations, it will be possible to encourage the learner's self-development to cultivate adaptability and creativity. But based on data analysis from technical evaluations, it will also be important to give clear instruction regarding the next learning goal for each learner and to create opportunities to improve motivation for learning. Based on this viewpoint, I developed an original technical evaluation system. The next step will be to improve this system. The transfer of hairdressing skills and techniques is essentially through hand labor. As times change and the environment of the hairdressing industry changes dramatically, it is necessary for educators to work actively on adaptable hairdressing education and instruction that can respond to the changes in character and temperament of learners born and raised in the times. For this, instructing methods also need to evolve continually. Finally, I studied the necessity of technical guidelines for hairdressing education and hairdressing work. From this study, I plan to continue this work with the expectation that a new way of instruction will emerge.
