Welcome to Hair & Beauty

"Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts."

Martin Buxbaum

 

If you are creative and practical and would like to study a subject with a real vocational direction, then Hair & Beauty is the subject for you.

In total, across the UK, there are almost 250,000 people employed in nearly 55,000 businesses in the hair and beauty sector. In these times of high unemployment, it is a good idea to get one step ahead of other people looking to go into this sector by gaining some knowledge whilst you are still at school. Professions in the hair and beauty industry give you a trade that will be with you for life and a variety of career paths, from working in a high street salon or a health club spa, to travelling around the world on cruise ships or styling celebrities as a media hair or make-up artist. The opportunities are exciting and broad if you are prepared to work hard and be self-motivated.

At The Long Eaton School you will learn about industry standards for health & safety, personal presentation, customer service, care and communication. You will also gain some practical knowledge and skills in hairdressing, beauty and nails techniques. Our course will help you to decide whether or not this is the vocation for you, as well as give you some ideas about possible career routes that you can take. You will gain a real sense of our diverse culture whilst learning about the different hair and skin types that you might deal with in this industry. With our industry links, you will have the chance to learn from real professionals from local businesses, and our applied learning strategies will help you to learn in practical, as well as theoretical methods.
