About the provider

The Hairdressing College has been owner operated in Palmerston North since 1953. Most current hairdressers in the Manawatu region know the business well and started their training here.

We have now redirected the teaching & learning practices to a more Learner-focused environment. Our business model is “Passion (Fashion) & Purpose (Relevance) before skill (Basic Skill)” this means we teach fashion work in blow waving, setting & Long Hair Ups well before the basic uniform layer sets & blow waves. This primarily focuses on capturing the students enthusiasm, excitement and keeps them focused on attendance & application to learning. This year we have factored into the years diary “in-house competitions” which we considered compulsory fun. All student participated & had enormous fun & excitement is preparing & practicing their mannequins to compete. All place getters won a place to compete in the local Manawatu Hairdressing Competitions in July.
