The Level 3 Diploma in Hairdressing is designed for hairdressers already working in the industry, or those who would like to refresh their skills after taking a break. You will improve your knowledge and practical understanding of hairdressing and build on the skills you already have. This course will also develop your communication skills and professionalism.

You need to have a Level 2 qualification in hairdressing and should be working in a salon on an employed or voluntary basis. 

Topics covered can include:

  • Health and safety in the salon
  • Blow-drying and finishing services
  • Hair colouring services
  • Hair cutting services
  • Hairdressing consultation
  • Setting and dressing services
  • Colour correction services

This course will be delivered on-site.

You will need general products and equipment as well as a laptop to access your e-portfolio. 

The Level 3 course can be funded by a student loan or the cost will be £1,500 which can be paid in instalments.

You will be assessed on the practical work that you do in the salon as well as through observations, an e-portfolio, online testing, assignments and oral questioning.

You will be supported by an assessor for the duration of the course.

You can progress to a management course or assessors award. 

You can also advance your career in commercial salons, on cruise liners, in the TV, film, theatre and media industries and in care homes. You could also become self-employed providing home-based or mobile services.

Hair Angels work experience leads to dream job for stylist Keri

I didn’t actually need to do it (as my course was part-time so I could look after the children) but I found I needed to get in more hours of practical training. I loved the “realness” of my work experience. I qualified in July 2016 and I’m so grateful for the experience I got while at Derby College. I’ve now got my dream job working as a self-employed hairdresser at Hair Angels.
