Hair and Beauty

For all those up and coming hairdressers or beauty therapists then this is a project for them,  young people will actively learn what skills are needed to be successful in getting employment as a junior hairdresser / beauty therapist, most young people see this as a very glamorous job and have a big shock when they realise that most of their duties are sweeping up, making tea or coffee or answering the phone! However all these are import roles for the smooth running of the salon,  and develop communication skills. The project will help young people learn customer care skills, communication skills, answering a telephone, where and how to record information, how to manage time and cleaning skills. Whilst motivating and building self esteem, giving the young person the foundation skills that can then be transferred to college courses or apprenticeships.

There will also be opportunities for the young people to test their practical skills (within reason) on willing models.
