Featured Programme

Certificate in Hairdressing (Level 3)

Do you have a flair for hair? From simple trims to wave blown restyles, this certificate will equip you with the skills and techniques to set you on the path to becoming a professional stylist in your local salon, Auckland’s high street or even Hollywood!

In year one you’ll learn about customer service from the initial meet and greet to discussing customers’ hair needs, through to finding out about hair types and structures, to follow-up treatments.

In your second year you’ll look to gain an apprenticeship to complete your National Certificate in Hairdressing. You’ll take things to the next level by learning about how to completely transform your customers from the top down.
