Getting Started

The site has professionally designed resources aimed for those who are just getting started with their hairdressing careers, as well as those who are experts in their fields.

If you are studying for an NVQ, we have mapped the modules to that in the menu on the left hand side. Simply browse to the level you are working on and you will find a list of mandatory and optional modules.

You can also find our content grouped by format, so all the videos, worksheets and quizzes are in one place. Students can study and revise within the college, at home or even at work allowing greater flexibility.

Hairdressing Training APP

We also offer a hairdressing app, which brings together all of our video content in one easy to use mobile app.  Search for 'Hairdressing Training' in either your Google Play or App store.
