To make sure we stay on top of industry trends and offer industry-specific hairdressing apprenticeships, we work with a wide range of salons in Leicester, Hinckley, Nuneaton and Coventry. As part of these programmes, you will not only develop your technical hairdressing skills, but also the personal and professional knowledge needed to work in a salon.
The hairdressing sector is well established with lots of people self-employed, owning a salon or running a freelance business. Working within this sector also provides the opportunity to work overseas or on cruise ships.
The UK hair and beauty sector has a turnover of £6.2 billion a year and employs nearly a quarter of a million people across 55,000 businesses and accounts for nearly 1% of the UK economy.
During your apprenticeship, you will cover areas such as:
- Hair industry practices and principles
- Health and safety requirements and legislation
- Hair cutting and styling techniques for all hair types
- How to provide hairdressing consultation services
