Hairdressers’ Academy

52 week SVQ hairdressing apprentice programme

Our training academy has been producing some of the north east’s best hairdressing talent since 2005.

The training programme is composed of a series of units and modules covering everything from cutting, colouring, blow drying, and treatments including client consultation and customer experience.

You will be coached by our very own experienced educators, who are passionate about developing new talent.

Our hairdressing students are based in either our Aberdeen or Glasgow salon on a full or part-time basis, and train in the academy for 1 full day per week.

Trainees will need to source models to work on every week for assessments, and bring their own equipment to the academy on training days.
