Career Opportunities

This qualification follows on from the Level 3 qualification in enabling learners to qualify as professional hairdressers. This qualification focuses on advanced hairdressing techniques such as perming, advanced colouring, braiding and dreadlocks as well as on a series of management functions designed to assist qualified hairdressers to set up and manage their own businesses. This is a sector in which a very large number of skilled professionals set up their own businesses at some point during their career, and a significant number do so immediately after completing their qualification.
