The Hairstylist program is offered over three consecutive terms, and provides students with a two-year Ontario College Diploma delivered in only 12 months. This pre-apprenticeship program includes 1,500 hours of hairstyling education: 510 hours of hairstyling theory and 990 hours of practice in hair cutting, styling, colouring and lightening, permanent waving, chemical relaxing and hair additions and trends. Students will also have the opportunity to study three general education courses.

A highlight and important aspect of the learning experience is the operation of the Salon & Spa at Lambton, a live practical lab where students practice hairstyling skills and salon business skills in preparation for salon management or ownership. Each week, students welcome clients into the salon and offer a variety of services. The array of services grows throughout the year as students develop their knowledge and mastery of hairstyling skills.
