Hair and Beauty Academy

Welcome to the Cedars Hair and Beauty Academy, a place where you can come and indulge yourself in a variety of treatments or gain the skills, techniques and qualifications needed to carry them out for yourself.

We offer a range of courses, treatments and services within both the hair and beauty sectors and benefit from having a brand new, modern and light salon for you to relax or train in.

Our students include years 10 and 11 studying here at Cedars Upper School, who follow the Level 1 VRQ Hair and Beauty Qualification with the VTCT awarding body. Students undertake a two year course, specialising in Nail care, Makeup and Hair styling and are now also able to gain a new GCSE qualification in this subject which runs hand in hand with the level 1 qualification.

We also offer courses for post 16 students available to anyone wishing to gain a qualification in Level 2 and 3 Hairdressing,  Level 2 Beauty Therapy studies and Level 3 Massage,  Level 2 Barbering and Level 3 Theatrical hair and makeup.

As part of the courses we offer, students are required to gain practical experience working on clients therefore we hold open salon sessions and assessment days where you are able to come in and receive a treatment from our students at a very reduced price. Prices can be found in the prices section of our site and appointments can be made by calling our salon direct. During their training students will also have the opportunity to participate in work experience in local salons to gain valuable insights into working environments in the industry of their choice.
