About the course

Course Number: SIH20111-01V01

Are you interested in hairdressing as a career?  Do you enjoy working with people, building rapport and communicating? Hairdressing is not only about cutting hair but providing an experience. You might have a passion for hair fashion work, as a platform stylist, design for stage, television and film, or events. Our Certificate II Hairdressing is where you start.
Learn about how a salon and a hairdressing team work together to create a client experience and ignite your desire for an apprenticeship in the hair and beauty industry. You will learn how to work as salon assistants, communicating in the workplace, interacting with and providing service to clients and assistance to colleagues. When you complete the course you will have the skills to perform routine functions under direct supervision as part of a hairdressing team.

People considering enrolment in hair and beauty courses need to be aware that skills development will require students to practise on each other and that industry dress codes will apply. This will necessarily involve touch but will always be practised and applied in accordance with industry codes of practice and ethics.
 
Work Placement
All students will have the opportunity to work on real clients in our well equipped simulated salons, but work placement highly recommended. 
 

This qualification is suitable for an Australian traineeship pathway, including a school based traineeship.
