The University of Southampton's School of Management is delighted to be receiving funding from the Economic and Social Research Council to embed sustainable issues into hairdressing training courses.

The school plans to develop more sustainable practices into the hairdressing curricula and hold events at hairdressing colleges around the UK to promote this. They are very excited for this opportunity to impact an entire sector, especially one that is so resource-intensive and has an impact on domestic hair-care practices.
