Program description

Hair Stylist

Learning how to take a customer's wish and make it come true is at the heart of a hair stylist's mission. In this 48-week diploma program, yo'll quickly learn the skills you need to provide exceptional service so that your client goes home smiling.

As a student in our hair stylist courses, you'll learn the essentials of the hair stylist profession, with classes in cutting and styling, hair colour and lightening, facials and makeup, and chemical texture services. You'll be part of a supportive and nurturing environment where you are encouraged to reach your potential as an emerging stylist. Of course, we know it's difficult to succeed in the fast-paced world of hair styling without a strong foundation in commercial practices. That's why you'll take classes like Introduction to Business Processes and Human Relations for the Salon Business so that you understand how marketing, accounting, and client relations can improve your success. You may even decide to follow other graduates and start your own business! With the mandatory apprenticeship aspect of the diploma, you'll be able to decide if you want to find employment in hair salons, spas, or other businesses.

Let us support you so that you can begin your career and continue helping others.
