Are you interested in working in an industry that boosts self-confidence and helps people to become the best version of themselves? Then a Hair & Beauty course at BLC is the ideal place to find your pathway to a rewarding and successful career. 

Alongside being able to buy products from MAC and Dermalogica at reduced costs, your friends, family, and yourself can benefit from discounted treatments at our commercial Salon Inspire.  

Our commercial salons allow students to gain real-world experience on clients, and our links to local and national employers mean great placement opportunities and guest speakers. Our programmes also provide access to high profile training at the Wella studios in Manchester, and the chance to enter regional, national, and international industry competitions. With all of this on offer it’s easy to see how a Hair & Beauty course at Buxton & Leek College will provide you with the skills, professionalism, and confidence to thrive in your chosen profession.  

From providing a top-class service as a senior colourist or stylist, to managing your own team of hair & beauty therapists, you won’t believe what you could achieve with a course at BLC. 

Many of our former students have gone on to work in top salons across the country, with some even starting their own businesses specialising in the area of industry they’re most passionate about – such as bridal hair and makeup.  

You will learn from highly skilled and innovative tutors who have extensive experience in all areas of the beauty industry from spa treatments to barber services. Many of our tutors even keep their skills up to date with their own mobile businesses and freelance clients, so they’re always able to pass on the latest industry knowledge. 

Whether you are deciding on your next steps after school, already working in the Hair & Beauty industry, or you would like a career change, we offer a variety of programmes to suit your needs and help you into your dream career.
