What opportunities will this course give me?
This course will give you the opportunity to save money by providing you with the skills to cut your family's hair - saving time and money on trips to the hairdresser.
This course can also be helpful if you are considering a career move into hairdressing or barbering, but are unsure if this path is for you. Upon completion of the course, you may wish to consider one of our part-time professional courses in hairdressing.
What will I be learning?
On the first session of the course, the students will have a demonstration of a hair cut and instruction on Health and Safety. During this lesson, learners will receive advice on what equipment to purchase for the remainder of the course.
Throughout the course, several handouts about haircutting will be given. Advice can be given on other hairdressing procedures. On further weeks the students will be asked to bring a head block to practice on. You will learn through a combination of learning theory, observing demonstrations, and practical tasks.
Upon completion of the course, you will be able to do basic cuts, such as a bob and a basic layer cut.
A College Certificate will be awarded on request.
What do I need to sign up?
There are no formal entry requirements in respect of this course.
Is there anything else I need to know?
This course is for anybody who would like a basic knowledge of haircutting and would like to be able to conduct basic hair cuts for friends and family. This is not a professional qualification and does not qualify you to work in this field commercially. If you are interested in this, you may wish to consider progressing on to one of our part-time professional courses upon completion.
The first week will be a demonstration, so no equipment will be needed.
For later weeks of this course, students will require a cutting comb, section clips, scissors, and a head block to practice on. Students will be advised on equipment during the first class. Please note, any additional materials are purchased at the learner's own discretion. Eastleigh College will not provide reimbursement for any materials or equipment purchased for the course.
Learners will need to purchase suitable haircutting equipment, advice will be given at the first class.
