Did you know it is sometimes possible to get hair training in high school? Check here.
Nfld. has a couple of good schools where you can get your beauty training. Check the list below for help in deciding just where you will get your training and become a licensed, professional NL hairstylist or esthetician.
How To Get Your Hairstylist License in NL
Hairstyling in NL is well-regulated by the government. To become a hairstylist you need to go to school, become an apprentice and then get your Canadian Red Seal. It takes a about a year all told! For the first part of your training you’ll need to spend about 34 weeks in school learning everything from workplace safety to barbering and colouring. Your apprenticeship will take about 6 weeks and include perming, advanced cutting and more.
Newfoundland and Labrador don’t have a cosmetology training per se. If you wish to learn makeup and skin care you’ll need to take separate courses on those topics and do another apprenticeship!

Some Newfoundland Hair Schools
College of the North Atlantic – CNA has many campuses but only teach hairstylists and Bay St. George and Gander. The course lasts 37 weeks. Their website will give you a good idea of what courses you need to take and you can feel confident in being supported by a long-standing school.
LeMoine’s School of Hair Design – 644 Topsail Road, Saint John’s, Newfoundland A1E
Phone: (709) 576-2149 There’s not a lot of information on the web about LeMoine’s. Have you been to the school or do you know someone who has? Maybe you’ve been there for beauty services of some sort. Let us know about the school so we can add some more info here so prospective students can get an idea about the training.
Woodford Training Centre – 4 Woodgrove Acres, Conception Bay South, Newfoundland A1X 6G3 – Woodford has a website where you can get a good idea about the training and hours required. They’ve been in business since 1995 which itself says a lot. Generally beauty schools won’t last 25 years if they are not good. Word gets around if students are not happy with the training and instructors, so you can tell just from the fact that they have been open so long that they are likely pretty good! The Woodford website is also professionally done and full of useful and pertinent pages… another good sign that they are a professional and conscientious outfit!
Keyin College – has five locations including Carbonear, Grand Falls, Windsor, Marystown, and St. John’s. They all give the same course for your hair training and help with apprenticeship placements too… it’s nice not to have to worry too much about while you are in the midst of classes.
