The Innov8 Hairdressing Salon is run as a fully established client-based salon. We teach NVQ level 1, 2 and 3. LV 1 is for 14-16 year olds and is mostly assisting. In Lv2, learners come out as junior stylists and Lv3, learners become qualified stylists.
Innov8 takes learners from schools all over the Borough. There is progression for theses learners to stay on, to do their Lv2 and Lv3. All assessments are carried out on paying clients and we are part of the City and Guilds awarding body.
A Client came in for the service foils and regrowth tint. We discussed what colours we would use.
The Learner used the colour chart for the consultation. All relevant tests were carried out on the client.
The Learner applied the colour scattering foils of red tint through the hair and coloring the roots a deep brown.
The Learner did her first all in one length hair cut on a paying client.
The Learner completed it all in the viable time and blow-dried the hair to make it sleek and smooth.
The Client was over the moon with the service and has made another appointment to return to the salon.
The Learner did her first set of tinted foils on another learner colour was discussed and we agreed to use tint instead of bleach so not to damage the hair.
The Learner did the foils in the viable time and did neat packages.
The Learner blow dried her hair and was over the moon with the final result.
Keratin smooth demonstration given to the learners so they can take on this service in future.
Our Learners are growing in confidence and producing some very high-quality work.
Lv1 learners working well with the Lv2 and assisting the stylist with helping to pass up, clean up and wash the hair (working as a team). Lv2 Learners are now learning Lv3 assessments so they can progress on to this in September 2019.
