  1. Hair and Beauty

Hair and /beauty is a vocational specialism on the LCA program. Students have a separate uniform and a room dedicated to the study of this specialism. This room is fully equipped with wash basins and facial beds. 

Over two years, the students learn how to wash and blow-dry hair, give manicures, give facials and do up styles. Part of the student’s final exam is a practical exam in one of the areas mentioned above as well as a written exam paper. 

The aim of the hair and beauty program is to provide students with a foundation in this area that they may chose to pursue in college after the Leaving Certificate Applied.
