Barbering Student

“My first day was amazing, everyone was friendly and made me feel very welcome. I was a little shy but my confidence grew throughout the course. My favourite units are Men’s Cut and the Colouring unit”


Diploma Student

“Hair at the Academy is a relaxed and friendly environment with plenty of one to one support where necessary. They go over and above to get you through your learning journey. I am now working in a high street salon”.


Former Diploma Student

I’ve always had an interest in hairdressing and often do family and friends’ hair. Since starting the course I’ve gained confidence in myself. I’m pleased that I’ve pushed myself out of my comfort zone.
