Hairdressing Level 6

My two years in college taught me basic hairdressing skills as well as both advanced colouring and cutting techniques. I also had the opportunity to learn about the business side of being self-employed, which helped me to open my own salon. I never thought this could happen so quickly!

Every day I use what I learned in college applying theory and practice. I also take full advantage of still keeping in touch with lecturers to ask for advice and keep on top of training.

Studying at Lews Castle College UHI has truly been a life changing experience for me.

What can I study?
