Why choose this field

This qualification enables learners to develop towards becoming professional hairdressers.
The Level 2 qualification is the first of three qualifications which culminate in a professional hairdressing qualification and is designed to serve as an introduction to the hairdressing industry and provide the learner with the basics of hairdressing. The Level 3 qualification follows on from the Level 2 qualification in enabling learners to develop towards becoming professional hairdressers and focuses on core hairdressing activities of cutting, relaxing, styling and colouring. The Level 4 qualification follows on from the NQF Level 3 qualification in enabling learners to qualify as professional hairdressers and focuses on advanced hairdressing techniques such as perming, advanced colouring and braiding and dreadlocks as well as on a series of management functions designed to assist qualified hairdressers to set up and manage their own businesses. Completing 6 months per NQF level on campus enables learners to progressively obtain the National Certificate in Hairdressing once the required practical work component of 18 months is completed.
