Hair and Barbering

Studying Hair and Barbering at Weston College

The hair and barbering qualifications have been developed in conjunction with local and national employers, giving you qualifications that employers look for - opening the door to a successful career in this fun and fulfilling sector.

All courses are taught by industry experts in the Hair and Beauty Centre at the Knightstone Campus, where you will get real client experience.

There are two routes to choose from:

  • Full-time - at the Hair and Beauty Centre

Some of our top students have gone on to work in the fashion, film and television industry as stylists, and opened their own hair salons and barbers.

What our students say

Wynter-Rose, Hairdressing, VRQ, Level 1

“Being a hairdresser is my overall career goal, therefore having the opportunity to study at Weston College and gain that experience, whilst still in education, is great.

“The tutors have really helped me progress and believe in myself. The support I have received has been fantastic and it has given me the confidence to work with real clients inside the salon.”

What’s next? “I plan to complete the Level 2 Hairdressing VRQ at Weston College next year and continue my journey to becoming a qualified hairdresser.”
