Course Content

This is an in-depth 1 Year Hairdressing and Barbering Course for students really wanting specialist hair styling skills. Take a look at the syllabus:

Client Consultation Skills

We start with the all-important ability to put your client at ease so you can get to work as quickly as possible. This means getting to know your client and any issues they may have because you want to achieve the best results every time. We also include data protection in this part of the course.

Hair & Scalp Fundamentals

The more you understand about hair and the scalp generally, the more success you’ll have as a stylist. For this reason, we teach you the basics about treating hair and scalp conditions and selecting and applying the right products. We also train you in massage techniques.

Cutting & Styling Hair

You’ll be working on women’s and men’s hair both long and short. You’ll be taught specialised layering and graduation techniques, etc. Understanding necklines, male patterns of baldness and the factors that influence the choice of styling are also included.

Hair Treatment

This part of the 1 Year Hair and Barbering Course focuses on colouring and lightening, perming and neutralising. We help you get used to the tools, equipment and products, as well as the skills and techniques you need as a hair stylist.

Facial Hair Techniques

Looking at the texture, density, length and growth pattern of facial hair is the focus of this session. Also, you’ll be taught about face shapes and outlines in order to apply contemporary and traditional looks successfully.

The Art of Dressing Hair

This session is all about perfecting the techniques of setting and dressing all types and lengths of hair – and it really is an ‘art’. Naturally, this includes developing a familiarity with the tools, equipment and products. We also help you manage the challenges that your working environment will pose, such as the effects of weather on hair.
