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.
