Enrolling now for 2017

Why choose Hairdressing?

Hairdressing is cutting-edge! Each day you meet interesting people from all walks of life and use a wide range of skills that are constantly updated, and you may even get to do hair for photos and shows.

To become a successful hairdresser you need practical skills, combined with creative flair, technical knowledge, fashion awareness, personal style, effective communication, a positive attitude, and the ability to put it all together. With hard work and application you can graduate after two years as a competent hairdresser, capable of earning your place in a busy salon.
