About the course
The course has theory and practical components. Our training is delivered alongside a Tutor/Senior Hairdresser in a commercial salon environment (practical) and face to face in the classroom (theory). This is an exciting programme which includes foiling workshops, cutting workshops and designer cut & colour workshops to extend your creativity and expand your knowledge on from unit standards. This allows for assessment in authentic working conditions.
Students must have NCEA Level 1 or similiar
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.
