Overview

This qualification is based on the national occupational standards for hairdressing and includes all the required elements to work effectively as a junior hairdresser/hair stylist.

Throughout this qualification, you will develop you knowledge and understanding of relevant anatomy and physiology. You will acquire knowledge of all relevant testing together with health, safety and legislation requirements necessary for a junior hairdresser/hairstylist. 

You will also develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to consult with clients and provide a range of basic cutting, colouring and lightening services. Alongside these are units to develop skills in setting, dressing, blow-drying and styling hair with electrical equipment.
