As a student of the College you will practise your skills in hair and beauty salons that recreate what it is like to work in a commercial salon. Our tutors have all worked in industry and will ensure you have the skills and experience you need to be successful.

Trips and Activities

Students have taken part in a variety of trips and activities including a residential to Paris and visits to Center Parcs Beauty Spa, professional industry exhibitions in Manchester, London and Birmingham, Wella in London and Salon International at London’s ExCel. A Level 4 hair student won an industry competition organised by Richard Phillipart and the prize was to assist him in styling the hair of models at Liverpool Fashion Week.


Most students progress to higher-level study at the College either from Level 1 to Level 2 or from Level 2 to Level 3, or progress into employment or Apprenticeships in local salons.

Two of our students secured jobs with a cruise line company after successfully completing an in-depth interview process.

Students have also gained employment at local salons due to the media coverage of their success in nail competitions.
