The hairdressing department prides itself on introducing great stylist to the hairdressing world that have good communication and are professionals. All students work in the college salon 'Hair by Us' 4 days a week. This has only been open to the public for 2 years and already has a good reputation. To improve their skills the students also visit Woodstock residential home one day a week to pamper the ladies that live there. All students attend work experience at local salons to increase their chances of employment once they have achieved their goals. As a department we believe students should get as much training as possible in different environments so we take the students to Wella Studios and Salon International once a year to learn new ideas and innovations in the industry.
