The Anne Tobin Beauty college is Connacht’s number one hair, beauty, and sports massage college.
Already in its sixth year, Anne Tobin is delighted to add hairdressing to her syllabus. This course, like all the college's courses, is accredited by ITEC (itecworld.co.uk ). Modules covered are shampooing, colouring, cutting, blow drying, health and safety, and related topics.
The course runs Monday to Thursday from 9am to 5pm, with placement on Fridays and Saturdays. The course starts in September and finishes in April. Barbering is also covered.
ITEC is recognised in some 35 countries which means graduates can work in places such as the UK, USA, Australia, and New Zealand. Steiner, a recruitment company for spas on cruise ships, always welcomes Anne Tobin's graduates (onespaworld.com ).
Full-time beauty courses in September will cover beauty, body, and electrolysis. There are also part-time courses available in body massage, beauty, reflexology, and sports and remedial massage. Other courses available are hot stone and Indian head massage.
Starting in July are the very popular spray tanning, advanced waxing, and nail technology courses covering manicure, gel, acrylic, and French tips, and there are still places available.
ITEC lecturing is also available for those who wish to upskill in this industry.
