Discover... how to make sure your future looks good

Did you know the hair and beauty sector is one of the few 'recession proof' industries out there?

Research has shown that even when times are tight, people are always willing to spend a little on making sure they can look and feel their best. The health and beauty sector has a workforce of nearly a quarter of a million people working across 55,000 businesses, turning over around £6.2 billion a year. That's nearly 1% of our economy, generated by people working in hair, beauty and nail salons, barbers and spas.

It's time to wake up and smell the nail polish – this is a major trade that deserves to be taken seriously.

If you have creative flair, strong practical and communication skills then we can offer the right course for you, whether it's in hairdressing, barbering, beauty treatments, or alternative therapy.

Our modern professional salons are located across the city and are open to the public, offering you the chance to train using high quality products whilst experiencing the environment of a full working salon with paying customers.

Our students have enjoyed fantastic success in hair, beauty and media make-up competitions, winning more than fifty medals in regional and national competitions in the past year alone.

We also have strong established links with major names in the industry including Calcot Spa, Robert John, 201 and Style Collection.

Studying with us could open up a future where you work in a salon, run your own business or travel internationally. Or maybe you could become a top class media make-up artiste, specialising in film, TV, theatre, weddings or the catwalk. Whichever path you choose, we can help you on your journey to a future that’s attractive to you.
