Course Information

Expect a collaborative class environment that encourages team work, teachers that know their stuff, and a fun culture of learning. Our full-time course runs for a year and students will attend classes from Mondays to Thursday, and every alternate Friday and Saturday. Our Friday and Saturday classes are dedicated to case study work and practical experience within our own salon situated in Big Bay. These classes will give you a sense of what it’s like to work in a real salon, how to deal with clients, and the day-to-day running of a hairdressing business.
