Hairdressing workshops

The workshops I offer here are written and provided by Lucy Gearing of Alternative Training Solutions in Shepton Mallet, a fully accredited training school. The qualifications are designed to be a one to one day workshop concentrating on one facet of basic hairdressing at a time, to give you confidence and a qualification to move on to the next level.  They are recognised and accredited by ABT, the diplomas offer you CPD points and allow you to gain liability insurance. You will get a ABT accredited certificate upon completion. 

   I ask that you wear comfortable workwear and closed toe footwear. I will provide drinks but you will need to bring your own snacks/ lunch.  This is a non smoking establishment, please don't smoke on site. I would like mobile phones to be switched to silent, it is distracting to both myself and the student to have them keep going off.
