Our guide to hairdresser training courses

Hairdressing courses cover a range of topics relating to the practical application and understanding of hairdressing in a professional environment, including colouring, health & safety and client consultation. Typically hairdressing courses will be an area of focused study; occasionally however, it will form part of a hairdressing and beauty course. The majority of courses prepare students for professional employment in a hairdressing salon and, therefore, you will need to have the ability to work independently and creatively.

I just came back from my 2 day Bridal hair course in London. It was excellent! We've learned so much in just two days! Pam herself is a fantastic teacher, very professional and very attentive. I would definitely recommend this course, they are a great team, they provide everything you need for the course and you will learn sooo many helpful styling tips! Super professional and good fun!
