Hair Care


The purpose of this module is to introduce students to the knowledge and skills that are required to understand and practice
basic hair care. Students will develop basic skills in areas such as shampooing, conditioning, blow-drying and the use of dressing aids for special occasions. This module can help to enhance the personal hair care and appearance of the student and is useful as a preparation for possible future training in hairdressing. It should be noted that the level of skill required for this module is basic and should not be confused with that required of an apprentice or junior working in a hairdressing salon.
