IF YOU HAVE A CREATIVE FLAIR AND ARE INTERESTED IN STYLE THEN OUR HAIR AND BEAUTY COURSES ARE THE PERFECT PLACE FOR YOU.

Offered at

North Notts College

With our range of courses in beauty therapy and hairdressing at our Worksop campus and hair and media make-up courses at Retford Post-16 Centre, you can choose a specialist area that most interests you.

Our courses combine practical, hands-on sessions with theory-based sessions on anatomy and physiology and underlying conditions. You’ll also have the chance to work on real-life clients in our commercial salon and showcase your skills in events and competitions.
You’ll train in our industry-standard training salons that replicate what it’s like to work in a real salon environment, and you’ll learn from staff who still practice as Hairdressers, Beauty Therapists and Make-up Artists.
