This course will introduce you to women's haircuts and hairdressing. You'll learn to cut and blow dry hair into three popular styles with a professional finish.

You'll be taught in our industry-standard working salon and gain practical experience in the following areas:

  • Cutting hair into one-length and layered hairstyles
  • Blow drying styling techniques
  • Selecting and using styling products to complement your finished look.


There is no coursework or exams during the course, but you'll be expected to complete an informal practical assessment at the end of the programme.


There is a fee to cover the cost of a professional hairdressing and styling kit you'll need to complete the course. As the course is run in our working salon, you'll need to wear smart black clothing (no trainers or jeans) as part of the salon uniform.

Next Steps
