L3 NVQ Diploma in Women's Hairdressing

women's hairdresser

This qualification forms part of a suite of VTCT hairdressing qualifications. At 422-502 guided learning hours (GLH), this qualification is larger than the VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Hairdressing Studies. Whilst both qualifications qualify learners to become senior hairdressers/stylists, this qualification in Women's Hairdressing requires learners to achieve more units and to develop a greater breadth of technical skills.

This qualification builds on existing knowledge and understanding of hairdressing and will develop an enhanced repertoire of technical skills to prepare learners for employment as a senior hairdresser/stylist. Learners will have their hairdressing skills assessed in a real or realistic working environment. The qualification includes all the required elements to work effectively as an advanced hairdresser/stylist including: health and safety; client consultation; advanced cutting; styling and colouring techniques and; selling products and services to clients. These units are all mandatory.

Learners will further develop their understanding and skills by selecting a number of optional specialist units which include: hair colour correction and specialist scalp services; bridal hairstyling; marketing for the hair and beauty sector; hair extension services; and relaxing African type hair - the full list of optional units is presented in the learner Record of Assessment book (RoA) (specification). This qualification's structure provides learners with the flexibility to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills depending upon their designated career pathway as a senior hairdresser/stylist.
