Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Hairdressing + Barbering Units
At LAFHAB we have recognised that some people want to achieve qualifications in both hairdressing and barbering, often because they want to work in, or run, a unisex salon. We have therefore put together a tailored course that combines both NVQ Level 2 Hairdressing with specific units from NVQ Level 2 Barbering, that will offer you a full NVQ qualification in both hairdressing and barbering. The course includes the required units for the full hairdressing NVQ qualification, with 4 relevant barbering units.
