A horrible haircut can ruin anybody’s confidence, which is why we’re willing to pay hundreds of pounds a year to avoid that. With studies showing that women in the UK go for a haircut on average once every six to eight weeks – half as often as men – that’s a lot of time spent in the hairdressers. Part of the challenge of getting a good haircut is finding the right hairdresser, one who understands what you’re looking for. However, it’s also crucial that they’re willing to be honest with you about what will and won’t look good on you – not everyone can pull off a blunt pixie cut.

This Hairdressing Diploma provides you with the knowledge and skills required to cut hair professionally. The course is split in two – hair cutting and hair styling. The first half looks at the former, where you will learn the basics of cutting hair, the different types of hair cutting and the latest methods. By the end of it, you will be an expert at identifying which cutting is best for constructing a specific look, as well as the cuts that look best on long, square, round and heart-shaped faces.

The second half of the course explores hair styling, where you are tasked with learning many of the different styles, including party hairstyles, ponytails and curly styles. You are also taught how to deal with different types of hair, the correct way to use hair salon equipment and furniture and the necessary techniques for braiding.
