Apprenticeship in Ladies Hairdressing at Alan d Education

Course description

For 16 and over who are employed in a hairdressing salon within M25 or live within M25 area. NVQ level 2 course of 18 weeks. Attendance is for one whole week in every five weeks. This Apprenticeship covers all the basics of hairdressing. As a Hairdressing apprentice, you’ll work as a salon junior, assisting senior staff while training as a junior stylist. Duties are likely to include booking appointments, shampooing, conditioning, drying and styling hair, and mixing and applying hair colouring. You’ll study hairdressing topics such as hair and skin testing, the effects of chemicals on hair and skin, and the principles of hair colour selection – there’s also the option to learn about promoting products, perming, or relaxing different types of hair. On this Apprenticeship you’ll spend a lot of time on your feet, and it’s important that you look smart (and have an even better hairstyle). Good communication plays a role, too – you’ll need to understand exactly what your customer wants in order to make them happy.
