Why Choose Hairdressing?

Being able to express yourself creatively while allowing your clients the chance to do the same is a huge reason people are attracted to the hairdressing profession. 

Studying hairdressing at Boston College means you’ll gain all the skills and knowledge you need by training with real clients in the College’s Style Academy salons that are open to the public in both Boston and Spalding.

You’ll learn in our fully-equipped hairdressing salons, and benefit from the extensive experience and knowledge of our lecturers who have all worked in the hairdressing industry. There are plenty of opportunities to be creative, such as styling models for competitions, photo-shoots and the end of year showcase.
