Barbering Diploma (NVQ) Level 2 at QUEST

Course description

This Apprenticeship is for those interested in cutting and styling the hair of men and boys (those who also want to work on female hair should investigate the Hairdressing Apprenticeship). You'll also learn about (and be tested on) other issues related to barbering, like hygiene, disposing of chemicals and working in a team. With men putting almost as much effort into their appearances as women these days, the demand for skilled barbers to cut and style hair is on the rise. On this Apprenticeship, you'll learn how to give client consultations, cut hair, trim and shape facial hair, and shampoo and condition hair and scalp. You could also choose to learn how to colour hair, give scalp massages and style different types of hair. You'll be on your feet and working to please all sorts of customers, so a friendly nature and good sense of humour will come in handy. Your own appearance will also be important, since customers will want to know that creating a good impression matters to you.
