About our Hair & Beauty Skills School
Students are trained by an industry professional once a week. Hairdressing modules include blow-waving, client care, equipment use, product theory, treatment, styling, colour, ironing and cutting. Students gain practical job-shadowing experience on-site in our mini-salon and learn how to run a salon. Beauty encompasses basic and acrylic manicures and pedicures as well as back, leg and foot massage and make-up for special occasions.
After each module students write a test and perform a practical assessment evaluated by our three Youth Mentors.
Students are presented with a certificate as well as a hairdressing kit on completion of the course enabling them to apply for an apprenticeship at a local salon or enter into the informal economy as entrepreneurs.
