Hairdressing Diploma (NVQ) Level 3 at QUEST

Course description

Advanced apprenticeships in hairdressing are designed for young people who have the potential to become senior stylists or salon managers and lead to an NVQ Level 3 and key skills. 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. Advanced apprentices take their learning a step further by developing their cutting and colouring skills so they can carry out all the latest fashion techniques - and maybe even determine the fashion looks of the future. 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.
