Hair & Beauty Therapy
This is where creativity and customer care meets, with careers that evolve into a wide range of areas and potential paths.
Most of our hair and beauty students will start off learning in the classroom, but there is plenty of real world learning in our salon, Distinctions. Recently refurbished, students are able to bring in their own clients or work on members of the public, so you can work on your customer service, technique and most importantly your confidence. This is a creative department, and there are plenty of competitions throughout the year where you can impress local salon owners with your skills.
I have always know that I have wanted to work in the beauty industry, so I came straight from school. It's a really interesting course, but hard work! There is a lot of biology in it, which people wouldn't expect, but I really enjoy that side of the course. I already have a job in the industry, but I plan on studying as high as I can go.
