Level 3 Hairdressing
Previous school: Newtown High School
I’ve grown more confident since the Level 2 course which helps me use my creativity to learn more adventurous hairstyles. I’ve learned a variety of advanced skills, including perming and colour correction. I live in Wales, but the college was recommended to me and I enjoy the modern college environment.
