The Hairdressing section at Kensington and Chelsea College has a reputation for a friendly and supportive environment in which our students study NVQ Level 1, 2 and 3 Hairdressing courses.

All our hairdressing courses take place in our well-equipped salon where you can learn hairdressing skills and client procedures in a professional environment.

We have excellent success rates and an impressive employment record for our past students. We enjoy strong links with the hairdressing industry, providing us with many opportunities for work placements. Acceptance onto our Further Education hairdressing courses is by individual interview, so that we can build a personal study programme taking into account your existing skills and time available to study. We aim to be as flexible as possible to meet individual student needs.

Students also get the opportunity to work with Digital Media students during their projects to allow both courses to benefit from the others' success.
