Hair and Beauty

Have you ever wanted to release the glamorous side of you? Do you want to learn how to do your hair and makeup? Or do someone else’s hair and make-up? This is your chance to learn how to create the style of your dreams and help people to look as fabulous as you!

You can learn how to blow dry hair, use straighteners, put in curlers, paint nails, put on lipstick and generally look your absolute best.

As well as learning these exciting skills you can also learn about communicating with other students and with customers, work in a team and on your own, learn about manners and being polite, and also improve your English and Maths if you want to.

This is an accredited course which means that you will build up a folder (called a portfolio) of your work through photos, drawings and/or written word. You will be able to do this yourself or other people can support you. You will get an AIM certificate if you pass the course and will be able to attend the star glittered graduation ceremony!

With your newly found hair and make-up skills you will be part of the best dressed group of people to attend and walk down that red carpet in style.

‘I have learnt lots of new things and it has helped my confidence a lot. It helps me talk to people I don’t know very well. I am now happy to help my friends do their hair and make-up and they love it! I hope one day to work in a hairdressers or beauticians. This course has helped me to see that I can do it if I want to.’
Zoe, Freedom student.
