Tools and Equipment

Picture yourself confidently walking into any hair store, and knowing exactly how to select the perfect products and tools for your hair styling kit. That's precisely the type of education we deliver. We do this by supplying all the necessary hair styling products and tools in our classroom, enabling students to use them while learning all about them. We want our students to have a complete education, and requiring students to buy a kit or including one in their tuition fee just to complete our course doesn't make sense. It restricts their learning to a single brand of hair products and tools. Completing a course tied solely to one kit might leave you uncertain about working with other brands. That is why we take on this expense for our students, expanding their learning and saving them money from purchasing an expensive kit on top of their tuition fee. 

Simply put, we provide everything needed in class, the only items we ask students to bring are a long hair mannequin head, a curling wand, and a hair dryer. They can either bring these items from home or purchase them from our professional range. Upon enrollment, we'll provide all the details regarding these items.

Job Outcomes

Upon finishing this course, students obtain certification as a Professional Hair Stylist, ready to launch their businesses specialising in Bridal and Special Event hair styling. Graduates can also explore diverse career options such as working in retail stores, salons, television, photography, and fashion shows.
