Hair or beauty? Discover your passion as a Salon Assistant

Are you passionate about the hair or beauty industry? Maybe you’re curious about a career in both hairdressing and makeup artistry. The Gordon’s Salon Assistant course gives you a taste of what it’s like to work in both environments, helping you decide which path is right for you. And, best of all – it’s free!
Jacinta Ramsay, The Gordon’s new Hair and Beauty Program Lead, tells us the best things about studying a Certificate II in Salon Assistant:
Discover your passion.
“During the program, you can try out a variety of professions in the hair and beauty industry, knowing your qualification will give you multiple pathways for employment or further studies. Salon Assistant graduates have the opportunity to continue studies in their preferred area. This course is an excellent way to start your career and prepare you for a hairdressing or barbering apprenticeship, or beauty traineeship.”
Hands-on learning.
“Learn real-skills you need to work in a busy hair salon or day spa. Working and learning within The Gordon’s very own salon ‘The Studio’ will teach you shampooing and basin service techniques, how to communicate and prepare clients for services, basic hair styling, and product knowledge.”
Study for free!
“The Salon Assistant course is a Free TAFE course under the Victorian Government framework. If you’re eligible, the only things you need to pay for are materials and resources.”
Flexible options.

Our students also love the opportunity to take on a work placement and earn money while they’re learning – with Free TAFE, it’s a win, win for your bank account.”
