Hairdressing and Barbering Apprenticeship Level 2 at City College Coventry

Course description

This apprenticeship is for those interested in cutting and styling the hair of men and boys. You’ll also learn about 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, shampoo and condition the hair and scalp and more. You could also choose to learn how to colour hair or cut basic patterns in hair.

Hairdressing apprenticeships cover all the basics of hairdressing. As a hairdressing apprentice, you’ll work as a salon junior, assisting senior staff whilst training as a junior stylist.

Duties are likely to include booking appointments, shampooing, conditioning, drying and styling hair, 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.
