Hairdressing

Overview

Come to the Dover campus, and get a head start in the creative and rewarding world of hairdressing. 

Here you will be taught by staff with industry knowledge and experience, as well as gain work experience in our very own salon. Our qualifications will give you the confidence and knowledge employers are looking for. We will equip you with the skills you need to progress into the world of work. 

You’ll learn how to conduct a thorough consultation prior to starting a service and understand how the choice of shampoos and conditioners can affect the hair and scalp. In addition we offer opportunities for students to learn from professional designers and interact with local entrepreneurs. As well as participate in community activities, such as the Dover Roman Festival.
