Hairdressing & Barbering
Hairdressing is more than just styling, you need to keep up with the latest trends and techniques in this fast paced industry; and having a strong foundation and skills set is essential in doing this. While working in our state of the art professional salon you will develop skills in shampooing, conditioning, styling, colouring, cutting and perming hair all of which are essential in gaining employment or when working on a self-employed basis. Competition can be fierce so you need to set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd.
Male grooming is also an ever increasing industry and experienced, creative barbers are more in demand than ever.
With many other careers and industry areas disappearing from the high street as a result of the rise in digital markets, hairdressing and barbering is one career that cannot be replicated online.
Along with guest speakers from the industry, you’ll get to visit the Professional Hair & Beauty Show, the Clothes Show Live and even trips to Wella Paris and Lancome Paris.
Work experience could include working on fashion shoots, theatre productions and involvement in competitions, both locally and nationally.
Our busy hair and beauty salon, The Graduate Salon, is open to the public so you’ll have the chance to work with a wide range of clientele enabling you to practice treatments and hone not just your practical skills but areas like customer service skills, handling money and stock control.
If you have your sights set on running your own salon you’ll need business savvy as well as styling knowledge and experience. The University Centre Grimsby offers an impressive range of business courses at HNC and degree level.
If you want to get straight into the workplace the Grimsby Institute offer apprenticeship pathways in Hairdressing. Visit the Apprenticeship website today for more information
