Course Information

We’re pretty sure that you know exactly what a hairdresser is. Also known as
hairstylists, they specialise in cutting, colouring and styling people’s hair in
a way that complements their features such as skin complexion and face shape in
order to enhance their overall appearance.


There is so much more to being a hairdresser than just cutting or styling
hair. The basic hairdresser job description includes responsibilities beyond
hair treatments such as maintaining the cleanliness of the salon and equipment,
looking after the inventory of hair products, collecting payments and ensuring
that the clients receive exemplary customer service in an orderly and timely
manner.
