Live the dream……….travel the world with your international hairdressing qualification

Hairdressing is one of the most sought-after skill sets around the world. Many salons employ staff who specialise in cutting and styling. The Academy of Hair & Beauty is the only college in Australia offering City & Guilds international Hairdressing & Barbering qualifications, including the International Diploma in Hairdressing for Cutting & Styling techniques.  We offer the highest quality training in Australia, and our training provides a spring board for your career not just in Australia but anywhere in the world.

What will you learn?

This prestigious City & Guilds International Diploma in Women’s Hairdressing recognises you as a fully qualified Cutting and Styling Technician in over 80 countries world-wide and is issued by City & Guilds (London).  In your core units you will learn how to cut, style and dress women’s hair. You will learn how to create hair up styles including braiding, plaiting, twists, barrel curls and weaving. You will learn to cut men’s hair using many techniques including layering, club cutting, scissor over comb and using clippers.

You will choose from electives such as colouring hair to create a variety of looks, colour correction, scalp massage, designing and creating patterns in hair, creative hair design to create more themed Avant-Garde styles suited to competition and photographic work. Other electives include bridal hairstyling to create rolls, pleats, knots, twists, curls and other effects, using a range of techniques. Other choices include trimming beards & moustaches in line with current and emerging trends, scalp massage, reception, stock display and promoting and selling products and services.

If you already hold an Australian qualification in hairdressing, you will be able to apply to have your existing skills assessed and then undertake training if necessary to achieve this prestigious International Diploma.

Our Graduates

Many of the Academy’s graduates prefer to own their own salons and, as they have gained great salon experience and confidence throughout their training, purchase or open their own salons immediately upon graduating.  It is the desire of most of our graduates to eventually become self-employed. The Academy’s training, which promotes independence very early in the course, provides the best possible foundation to achieve their career goal.
