HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT?

As a hairdressing learner at Preston’s College, you will perfect your skills in our on-site bespoke salon, Elements. The salon is a fully furnished hair salon, where you will work on fellow learners and paying customers, under the supervision of a Salon Manager. Paying customers are members of the public who often visit Elements for the great prices and customer friendly experience on offer.

As well as working in the salons, you will spend time in the classroom and in workshops, allowing you to enhance already held hairdressing abilities and develop skills in more complex areas. Typically, you will split your time between full days of commercial salon work, workshop demonstrations and in-class theory sessions, as the course is studied over two full days per week for a full academic year.

All learners at level 3 are encouraged to seek and undertake a work experience placement, as very often this leads to employment as a stylist, upon successful completion of the course.

In addition to classroom learning, world renowned Wella will visit college to provide bespoke teaching days throughout the year. You will also have numerous opportunities to hear from guest speakers and enter compeititions.

As our on-site facilities reflect industry working practices, you will be required to purchase and wear the official Elements uniform for your time on the course. This consists of a tunic (£14) and trousers (£14). You will also be required to purchase a full hairdressing kit. Both uniform and kit can be purchased through Preston’s College, once you begin your course.
