It's fair to say that the hairdressing industry and the opportunities within it have exploded in recent years. There are high-end salons in every high street, London Fashion Week, street carnivals in the summer to celebrity hairdressing programmes on television. The arrival of Carshalton's very own 'superstar' mentor in the vibrant form of Aidan Phelan at the newly opened Aidan Phelan Academy is testimony to this. The status of hairdressing as a career choice has risen to stratospheric levels. The sky, for some hairdressing students, is the only limit. You can work hard to secure a great job in a lovely salon, work harder still and you could soon be winning Hairdresser of the Year Award or setting up your own business. Wherever you've set your sights, Carshalton College is the 'place to be', to study hairdressing!
