Hairdressing Level 2 Diploma at Heart of Worcestershire College

Course description

Do you have a passion for hairdressing? Can you see yourself working in a salon? Do you have good communication and social skills? This course offers you the training and experience you need to develop a great career in hairdressing. It balances theory with some great hands-on experience. At our on-site salons, you will learn how to colour, cut, style, set and blow-dry hair. You will also learn how to advise and consult with clients, and develop important teamwork and customer service skills. As you progress, you will begin to take on more demanding roles. This course provides you with the minimum qualification needed to qualify and register as a Hairdresser, so you can become a Junior Stylist as soon as you finish your last assignment!

Entry requirements

You must have 4 GCSEs A-D including English and maths or an appropriate Level 1 qualification in a relevant subject.


You will create a portfolio of your work based on the skills you develop at Fountains and your tutor will mark this as you complete each task. Each unit is delivered individually, so you can work at your own pace and be assessed when you feel ready.

Future opportunities

Successful completion of this course will give you the opportunity to progress onto a Level 3
hairdressing qualification.

Alternatively you may wish to pursue a career within the hairdressing industry,
e.g. salons, cruise ships.
