Are you interested in hairstyling, skin care, make-up application or beauty treatments?

Our newly refurbished facilities include three beauty therapy treatment rooms, three media make-up studios and two large hairdressing salons, as well as a fully functioning reception and shop, giving students practical, hands-on experience.

As students model for each other whilst practicing, they will experience many different treatments and services, using the most professional products and up to date equipment. Students will then work on College clients, enabling them to build confidence and experience under the supervision of staff.

All tutors are fully qualified Beauty Therapists/Hairdressers/Barbers/Media Make-up Artists who enjoy sharing their vast industry experiences with students. Staff ensure that they keep up to date with new treatments and developments and maintain excellent links with employers and other industry experts.

In addition to the core curriculum, we also offer additional training opportunities for our students. These vary from one year to the next (as they are influenced by industry and fashion trends). Previous examples have included, gel nails, spray tanning, henna brows, intimate waxing, ILP laser and light treatments for hair removal, and skin rejuvenation and keratin hair smoothing.

The hair, beauty and media make-up industry is a fast paced, ever changing industry which ensures that no two days are the same. If you are interested in maintaining, changing and improving the appearance of a diverse range on individuals, or simply enjoy making people generally feel better about themselves, this area of work may be of particular interest to you. These careers are suited to those who have a tendency to be creative, with a caring nature. Good communication skills are very important and there is a significant emphasis on these attributes throughout the course.

What our students say
Matilda

“I chose Beauty Therapy as I’ve always had an interest in a variety of different beauty treatments such as nails, facials and waxing. I also have a huge passion for client care, so ensuring that the client is comfortable and satisfied with the treatment is one of the main objectives within the course. Beauty Therapy has opened many doors for me and has given me lots of opportunities for the future."
