Is this course right for me?
This is an intensive part-time course, compared to the full-time alternative route therefore good attendance, motivation and commitment are required. The course maintains the fun and experimental salon aspects of our other provision and if desired, students also have the opportunity to participate in educational trips, competitions and promotional events to enhance their learning.
