Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy

beauty banner

Fancying being amongst the “happiest workers in the UK” according to many national polls? Then give yourself the skills, the experience and the drive to be a success in the varied and exciting world of hairdressing or beauty therapy.

Hairdressing

This course will ensure you’re fabulous at combining excellent communication skills, creative flair and attention to detail so you’ll be able to carry out those all-important client consultations and complete the looks with finesse to become a proficient and successful stylist.

Beauty Therapy

Never underestimate the power of a good beauty therapist! The amazing feeling you can give each and every client with a treatment is invaluable.  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. 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

A growing and innovative sector, holistic health and wellbeing careers are incredibly rewarding. 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 or 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. But really, the only limit is your imagination!
