Introduction to the Beauty & Hair Industry
We are team-centered Educators who take pride in welcoming you to the College family. We all have subject specialisms within Hair and Beauty industries and continue to update our skills regularly in order to provide trending treatments and services.
During the first term you will start to cover the basic Health and Safety for the Industry. This will involve learning to risk assess areas of work for hazards. You will learn how to keep yourself and the client safe through the duration of the treatment. Under an umbrella heading of Health and Safety you will familarise yourself with laws that cover Personal Protective Equipment (P.P.E), Fire Safety, Electricity at work etc.
We are fortunate to be able to offer short courses such as Dermatitis and Identifying Skin Cancer to get you started. Please have a look at the below materials and complete the tasks thereafter.
