Hair and Barbering

At Oldham College, the Faculty of Hair and Barbering is committed to developing students’ creativity, technical aptitude and customer-facing skills. This three-pronged approach provides students with the ability to perform highly in both apprenticeships and work.

Our state of the art, on-site salon is the perfect platform for students to perfect their cutting, blow-drying, styling and colouring skills. They enjoy the hands-on style of teaching provided by our barber-shop and salon-experienced tutors.

Past Hair and Barbering students at Oldham College have enjoyed successful careers as barbers, hairdressers, business-owners and teachers.
