Graduate Styling Programme (8 months)

Now into its second year, this programme is a hairdressing first, taking you further as you develop your skills, knowledge and confidence under the expert tuition of our ghd creative team and expert guest artists.

Styling and dressing hair is an art in its own right. At ghd we believe in starting with the fundamentals of styling to provide a solid foundation from which to build further skills. These core skills are essential if you have a career as an award-winning stylist in your sights. We believe that the Graduate Styling Programme is essential to anyone who is looking for more than a one-off seminar. Regulated and certified by VTCT, each graduate will hold the QCF ghd styling qualification on completion of the course.

The course is tailored to you, allowing you to focus on your own bespoke styling journey – learning eight modules and specialising in six, you can concentrate on the areas that interest you the most and develop the skills to be the best at what you do.
