College of Hairdressing Connaught.

The College of Hairdressing, Connaught has been established since 1992 running from a training salon in Galway as well as training centres in Shannon and Ballina. The College offers Hairdressing courses to cater for all levels from beginners to Senior Stylists and Salon owners who want to keep their skills up to date. Our modern dedicated training unit provides an excellent environment for students to develop their hairdressing skills within a working salon environment. The College is pleased to announce that it is now a QQI Level 5 registered Centre and is offering Minor and Major QQI Level 5 Awards.

The College Principal and Managing Director, Josephine Cribbin, a native of Mayo, opened the College of Hairdressing in 1992. She has acted as external verifier for City & Guilds and has edited the “Irish Hair and Beauty Journal”. In order to provide excellent service and education she has trained her tutors to ensure that those pursuing a career in hairdressing are equipped with the hairdressing skills to enter a salon at junior stylist level. The hairdressing school’s highly motivated Tutors are all qualified to National Vocational Assessor Award standard and regularly update their skills through ongoing courses.
