Career prospects

For those that study Hairdressing, completion of the Level 2 course provides you with the skills to work in a salon at junior stylist level. Progression to the Level 3 course is recommended to advance your skills and enhance your career opportunities such as opportunities in specialist salons or working as an industrial consultant or progressing on to Higher Education. You could work as a salon stylist and enhance your career by specialising in a particular area or working as an industrial consultant.
