The Salon hairdressing studio at East Durham College's Peterlee Campus

Apprenticeship in Hairdressing & Barbering

Become a cut above the rest with an apprenticeship in hairdressing and barbering

These Hairdressing & Barbering Apprenticeships cover all the basics of hairdressing and barbering. As an apprentice, you’ll work as a salon junior, assisting senior staff while training as a junior stylist.

Duties are likely to include booking appointments, shampooing, conditioning, drying and styling hair, and mixing and applying hair colouring. You’ll study hairdressing/barbering topics such as hair and skin testing, the effects of chemicals on hair and skin, and the principles of hair colour selection – there’s also the option to learn about promoting products, perming, or relaxing different types of hair.

Advanced apprentices take their learning a step further by developing their cutting and colouring skills so they can carry out all the latest fashion techniques – and maybe even determine the fashion looks of the future.

On these Apprenticeships you’ll spend a lot of time on your feet, and it’s important that you look smart (and have an even better hairstyle). Good communication plays a role, too – you’ll need to understand exactly what your customer wants in order to make them happy.
