Red Seal Hairstylist Exam Prep Overview

The Red Seal Hairstylist Examination Preparation course is designed to help you understand the skills and knowledge required to pass the Red Seal Exam. The course will focus on helping you review, interpret and discuss the Red Seal Occupational Standard. Additionally, this course will help you develop essential test-taking skills required to pass the exam.

Hairstylists have different responsibilities depending on the location they work. However, many of them shampoo, cut, style and chemically treat hair. They might also do scalp treatments, hair extension services, hairpiece services and barbering; which may require further training. In order to do this job well, they need to be able to read, write, communicate effectively, use digital technology, and seek continuous learning opportunities.

Hairstyling is a Designated Red Seal trade in: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and Yukon.

Live Online Students

Ashton College offers education for all students with a unique online learning approach. A synchronous learning component provides real time interaction and immediate feedback. We use real time interactive sessions, breakout rooms, and screen-sharing. An asynchronous learning component allows students to work at their own pace. Our asynchronous learning materials include recorded real time lectures, online readings, and discussion forums. We encourage students, if possible, to use both components so as to enjoy interactivity and community of real-time learning as well as studying at their own pace. This approach ensures students have support and resources to achieve their educational goals.

For synchronous sessions, students need to have a fully functional computer system with a webcam, speakers and microphone or headset and headphones, along with a reliable high-speed internet connection. Though the classes can be accessed using smartphones and tablets, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer for a better learning experience.

This program/course does not require approval by the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills. As such, PTIB did not review the program/course.
