Hairdressing Courses

Hairdressing

We offer full time, part time, or day release hairdressing and beauty courses, as well as apprenticeships in hairdressing. Our hair courses achieve high success rates and are staffed by teachers with extensive professional experience.

On your hairdresser course you'll train in our professional hair salons, which are open to the public, and take part in industry visits and exhibitions in the UK and overseas. After your hairdressing course, you'll be confident, qualified and job ready.
