Hair & Beauty

In Hair & Beauty students work towards an Award, Certificate or Diploma in City & Guilds Entry 3/Level 1 ‘An Introduction to the Hair & Beauty Sector’.

Our Hairdressing students work towards gaining the Level 1 qualification, aimed at Key Stage 4 learners aged 14 – 16 years, specifically those who have had difficulties in an academic area.

The qualification is broken into units worth 3 credits, each covering areas such as Customer Service, Personal Presentation, Health and Safety, Introduction to Hair and Beauty, Shampoo & Conditioning, Plaiting, Colouring, Styling both male and female hair, Makeup, Skin Care, Hand Care, Manicure & Nail Art, and Face Painting. 

The qualification consists of both theory assignments and practical observations, and is graded Fail/Pass/Merit/Distinction.

The Lead for Hair & Beauty is Helen Emery
