Education

We believe that learning never ends.

“Excellence is a journey not a destination – you don’t reach it one day, it’s ongoing – it’s about constantly, consistently learning.” The Fantastic Hairdresser.

To educate and inspire our team we hold regular creative classes for all levels to practice new techniques in colouring, cutting and styling. Our Spa and front desk teams also benefit from education classes on the latest beauty techniques and products.

Our staff are rewarded for hard work and enthusiasm with generous commission programs based on service sales and retail benchmarks. Other great benefits of working with us include – paid holidays, free haircuts and colour,  and 40% off Aveda products.

In 2005, we launched our in-house training academy. From classic cuts to creative colour, gents barbering to customer service –  our apprentice team receive continuous training and development to help them become the next generation of fantastic hairdressers.

Our in-house training team comprises of 12 of our best stylists,  who not only educate our apprentice team but train and develop every single member of our styling team. This ensures the highest standard of hairdressing flows through both our Aberdeen and Glasgow salons, not only because our educators regularly work in our salons but because their passion, knowledge, skill and creativity is instilled in every member of the team. Our training programme provides all candidates with the opportunity to complete a SVQ Level 1 & 2 in Hairdressing, with our team of certified assessors.

Since its launch, our training academy has successfully produced over 25 fantastic hairdressers. These graduates are now busy working as stylists on our salon floor.

Our fantastic team are always learning.
