You develop initiative, sound technical skills and the important ability to build a clientele and run your own salon.

Practice with clients begins immediately you start and continues throughout your training.

During your short time at the Academy you will work with more clients than you would in an average salon for 3 years.

You will be styling and cutting clients' hair within the first four months of your training.



The difference between The Academy's training and others is in the way you will experience, throughout your course, the professional running of a Beauty Salon.

This constant practice with clients is the key to a smooth transition to employment.
