With a long tradition of offering courses in Hair Design, at MidKent College in Kent, we have an unrivalled network of links to the local industry.
Fully-equipped salons – which have been granted the Wella Salon of Excellence Award – provide a high-quality commercial setting in which students can practise their skills and provide their services to paying customers.
Choose to learn with us and you will benefit from a wide choice of work experience placement opportunities, as well as the support of expert tutors working in a department judged by Ofsted as Outstanding.
An extensive range of higher education courses are also available at MidKent College.
Our full-time Hair Design courses lead to nationally recognised qualifications that either prepare students for work in the hairdressing industry or enable those who are already qualified as hairdressers to develop and enhance their skills.
Depending on the level of course you complete, you may begin by developing your practical skills on your classmates and a 'training head'. Then, as your skills improve, and with supervision from your tutor, you will start to provide treatments for fee-paying clients.
Those studying at a more advanced level will enhance their technical skills, including cutting and colouring.
