About Hairdressing HNC (SCQF level 7) at City of Glasgow College

The HNC Hairdressing course is designed for hairdressers currently working in the profession who are seeking an advanced certificate in hairdressing. This course will provide you with the highest qualification currently held in hairdressing. The course is designed for experienced stylists or newly qualified stylists who want to further their studies.

All technical units build and expand your existing skills, knowledge as a stylist, giving you the opportunity to design and create looks based on current fashion. A specialised unit in hair and scalp allows you to develop a deeper understanding of hair loss and implications of conditions and how to treat. This is an invaluable tool for the current market of clientele suffering hair loss.
You'll also learn new skills in photoshop to portray your work and advance in your communication skills via writing and presenting.

Lecturers teaching on your course are equipped with vast experience and expertise in Hairdressing and learning and teaching methods. Your lecturers continually upskill in professional development and pride ourselves as Colour Experts/Specialists, Trichologists and Cutting Ambassadors. One of our core values as lecturers and industry experts are to support you as an individual to flourish as a student.

Your course will be interactive using a variety of methods to ensure your learning and progression needs are met. Units are lecturer led, however, we fully encourage you to take ownership of your own learning through designing looks, working with other college students from make-up artists to photographers and organising charity events.
