Studying a hairdressing course at City and Islington College gives you creative skills in the art of cutting and dressing hair, as well as practical skills including how to present a professional image and work effectively with others in the salon. Our study programmes are taught by fully qualified, highly creative staff who have a wealth of professional and teaching experience.
Our beauty therapy courses equip you with a range of beauty techniques, developing the skills you need to carry out facials, hair removal, manicures, pedicures, eyebrow and eyelash treatments. As your skills develop, you will also get the chance to learn about advanced beauty treatments, including specialised electrical face and body treatments.
All of our hair and beauty courses have a real business focus and you will learn about the day-to-day running of a salon, including working on reception and the responsibilities of a salon manager. You'll get hands-on experience in our salons at Finsbury Park and Holloway Road, carrying out treatments on real customers under the guidance of professional beauty experts.
