Hairdressing – Beginners Course (Full- Time)

Cork Academy of Hairdressing

Hairdressing – Beginners Course.

This course is ideal for anyone who intends to go into hairdressing and make a career for themselves that is both exciting and creative. This career could take you anywhere in the world and can be very well paid! With The Cork Academy of Hairdressing training behind you, that kind of career could be yours.

Beginner’s Courses are approximately eight months in duration and are made up of classes lasting four weeks each, with expert tutors to guide you step by step through all the most essential elements of hairdressing. You will start by learning basic skills and progress to creating your own designs. Before you move to a new class, you are given a practical examination and if you have not yet been able to achieve everything demanded, you are held back until you have the confidence and skills required for that class. Standards are high and class numbers are small allowing for close personal attention. Our aim is to turn out the best hairdressers in the country, if not Europe.
