You can work in a range of settings, from salons to department stores or cruise ships or even go mobile, and bring your skills to people’s homes.

Hairdressers will start by getting a broad level of training, and then perhaps look to gain skills in more specific areas. People training to work in the beauty industry have a wide range of choices regarding which skills they would like to learn.

Our purpose built Lifestyle building at Cauldon Campus and our bespoke make-up studio for theatrical and media make-up at Burslem Campus offer industry  standard, cutting-edge facilities in which to learn.

The College continues to work in partnership with L'Oreal. The L'Oreal Flagship Salon within the College's Lifestyle building benefits from the support of industry leader L'Oreal to ensure that our students are fully prepared for employment in the hairdressing sector when they complete their qualifications. L'Oreal provide input into all our hairdressing courses, including specialist training for our staff, so that our teaching keeps up-to-date with developments in the sector, as well as benefitting from the great products that L'Oreal provide.
