Hair and Beauty

In our newly renovated salon, our students have the opportunity and the resources to learn all the basic skills required to start their career in the Hair and Beauty sectors. The hair salon boasts 3 hair-washing basins, 2 hood-dryers and 10 fully stocked stations that the students can practise and hone their skills at plaiting, wash and blowdrying, straightening, curling, perming, setting and hair-up styles. The Beauty salon contains 5 nail bars, 5 UV nail lamps and a beauty bed enabling our students to perform basic beauty treatments that will be the fundamental building blocks for a future in this ever growing industry.

We aim to deliver a practical skill based course within a working salon environment, embedding these skills with the theory and reasoning behind the techniques and procedures. With a range of different training heads across both Hair and Beauty, our students are able to build their skill and confidence before progressing onto working with clients.

We deliver an accredited Pearson’s BTEC qualification in the Introduction to the Hair and Beauty Sector Level 1 – Award, Certificate and Diploma.

  • Plaiting and Twisting
