Cally Tjiraso - City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Women’s Hairdressing

I have enjoyed my level 3 Hairdressing course. I have learnt many new things and so much more in-depth of things we have already learned in the previous years. This course is also very helpful with information about opening up your own business or freelance, for example Health and Safety, Insurance, Marketing and many more. I am now working in a hairdressing salon.
