Course Description

This 21-hour micro-credential provides an opportunity for learners to explore hair types; work hands-on with products and processes specific to textured hair; understand protective hairstyles; explore natural and heat/chemically straightened hairstyles; and practice common film techniques, like styling for continuity and the use of hair extensions, in a textured-hair-specific environment. This micro-credential focuses on working in the Film industry, while the content also applies to hair stylists across many industries. This micro-credential opens access for Red Seal hairdressers to flexible careers in the Film and Television industry, with a specific focus on textured hair.

Learner Outcomes

Learning will include both theoretical and hands-on components. After completing this micro-credential, learners will be able to:

• Describe the various hair types and their attributes

• Select and use products appropriate to textured hair

• Style natural hair, heat- or chemically-straightened hair, and hair that is in a protective hairstyle, maintaining characterization and continuity

• Apply learning from previous micro-credential learning specifically to textured hair.

The course will be assessed based on student participation and a variety of assignments.


This micro-credential is designed to be taken separately or consecutively with the three other Hair in Film micro-credentials, submitted separately.
