Need of the present courseIt should be almost a common knowledge by now that in the present-day world, 'normal' academic courses, in spite of having importance of their own are inadequate when it comes to getting a job. There is a need to develop courses of study which are more practical and which are relevant to market needs. Apart from this, of course, there is also a need to accommodate a variety of learners with different interests. And that is where the present course on hairdressing by the VLCC Institute of Beauty and Nutrition has its relevance.

This is important as most hair-stylists might want to start their own business after having completed their training and after gaining a bit of experience. Therefore learning the management part of it is also extremely important. Besides this, the practical-theory mix is also around about perfect. The course comprises of around 80% of practical component and about 20% of theory component.
PlacementsMoreover, the institute also has good linkages with the market. This is important because it means a good number of placement opportunities for the students who have passed out from VLCC.

Among the various market leaders who recruit from VLCC include names like Sohum Spa, Urban Clap, Kaya, Lakme, Dr. Batra's, and Dr. Paul's clinics, among others. Getting into one of them can mean a reasonably good entry-level salary and a great experience of working with the market leaders.

Concluding remarksThe hair styling industry in particular and the makeup industry, in general, is a fast-growing industry. Although it hasn't had a massive impact on the smaller towns, that will also change in a decade or so. But like any other trade, there is no guarantee that you will get into a job with a regular salary. Also, the service conditions in many of the makeup firms (barring the market leaders already mentioned) may not be exactly up to your expectations. Therefore it is always for the best to make an informed decision regarding this matter.
