Gain the foundation skills needed to start a career in hairdressing.
This programme has been designed to provide a broad introduction to hairdressing, and a foundation to build upon with further study. You'll learn about salon culture, hierarchy and terminology so you can communicate appropriately with clients, peers and supervisors, and you'll use a mannequin to practice following a pre-cut guide, combing and projecting the hair and maintaining even tension. You'll also learn how to perform a limited scope consultation - including hair and scalp analysis - and elementary styling tasks such as blow drying, moulding, setting and long hair-ups. The programme also covers the basics of colour treatments, health and safety and hygiene, as well as the personal health and presentation requirements of salon environments.
This programme is also offered for Youth Guarantee students. You can apply for these options if you're 16 to 19 years of age and no longer at school, or if you're planning on leaving school.
