Bournemouth & Poole College students in a beauty lesson

The Hair and Beauty industry is a creative sector offering many career opportunities.

We offer courses in Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy and Media Make-up, in our on-site salons where you'll learn skills from our highly experienced staff and benefit from our close links with the industry. 

There are great opportunities in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy, with many of our past students going on to own or manage their own salons. In fact, our courses could lead to many different careers; you could be a hairdresser, barber, beauty therapist, colourist or salon manager. You could work in a spa, a 5-star resort, on a cruise liner, or as part of a celebrity’s team. There are huge opportunities in this sector, and your work could take you all over the world.

Our courses leave you with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to get you started in your career, or help you progress to new heights in further study. You’ll be working on real clients from early on in your time with us, developing the skills you need to succeed.
