Hair & Beauty

The hair and beauty industry is a rapidly growing creative sector and our courses focus on developing the relevant specialist and professional skills for a successful career.

You will be taught and assessed by highly qualified staff who have a wealth of up-to-date commercial and specialist teaching experience.

Working in our commercial hairdressing and treatment salons, you will gain hands-on experience to prepare you for the workplace. There is also the opportunity for work experience placements thanks to our strong links with businesses throughout the sector.

Students in the department are ambassadors for the College, taking part in regional and national hair and beauty competitions, and offering a wide range of treatments to the public at discounted prices under the guidance of expert staff. Our industry connections mean that students benefit from regular visits from major product houses and industry professionals who offer presentations, demonstrations and workshops. This creates an enriched learning experience and ensures that students enter the workplace informed with up to date knowledge.
