Basic Hair -- 1 Week Course The perfect introduction to the techniques used in fashion and period hair styling

Just as lighting and shading with make-up alters the shape of the face, a hairstyle can bring attention to a strong feature or disguise a weak one. A good hairstyle denotes period, age, and character. On the other hand, a poor hairstyle can ruin the look of even the best make-up.

Our Basic Hair short course introduces you to the techniques used in period and fashion hair styling. You'll also learn how to use a variety of leading hair products, giving you the skills to use them in the best way.


A deposit of £225 and a completed enrolment form will secure you a place on the course. Use of all necessary brushes, equipment and products is included.

Course Details

This is a practical course that teaches you the hair techniques for use in both period and fashion hair styling. You'll use electrical equipment such as tongs, heated rollers, straighteners, and bendies. You'll learn techniques such as styling long hair, French pleats, bridal styles, braiding, and plaiting. At the same time, you'll be gaining knowledge of a variety of hair products and how best to apply them.

Please note: The course fee includes use of the combs, brushes, and grips included in our complete kit. However, if you plan to use the skills learned on the course in future, you may prefer to buy your own set. The combs, brushes, and grips in our complete kit costs £54.
