Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy

Hair, Beauty, Therapies and Theatrical Make Up at Coleg Gwent, South Wales

Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy‘If you do a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life’ – the mantra of many professionals working in these varied, exciting and rewarding industries, as they often top the national polls of the happiest workers in the UK.  So smile, enjoy and reap the rewards as you curl, colour, tint or brush your way to the top – be a cut above.

Hairdressing
You want your work to be front page for all the right reasons so you’ll need excellent communications skills to carry out those all-important client consultations, creative flair to adapt the latest trends and a keen eye for detail to make those finishing eye-catching touches.

Beauty TherapyEveryone likes to feel special once in a while, so a beauty therapist has the important job of pampering and preening, to leave clients refreshed and relaxed.  But you’re not just restricted to the beauty couch or nail bar. You could step out of the salon and pursue a career in beauty consultancy, beauty buying or sales, and every year Coleg Gwent graduates go on to work on cruise liners providing the opportunity to travel whilst working in this rewarding industry.

Complementary Therapies  
As society has become increasingly open to a holistic approach to health & wellbeing, demand has increased for skilled, qualified therapists in a range of therapies – from aromatherapy to reflexology to massage.  You'll gain practical skills and techniques, supported by the underpinning theory.

Theatrical Make-up
As a make-up artist you would apply make-up and style hair for anyone appearing in front of a camera or a live audience. You may work in film, television, theatre, concerts, photographic sessions or fashion shows.  From a natural look for TV, to using wigs and hairpieces for period dramas, to using prosthetics for horror productions – the life of a makeup artist is never dull.  You could work alone, as an assistant to a senior colleague, or as part of a larger hair and make-up design team.
