Why Us?

Short Intensive Courses – We know that not everybody has years to dedicate to training or to get a qualification. We are the leading academy in the UK with the most specialised short intensive courses and qualifications. We believe the best type of learning comes from intensive training in small classes by experienced tutors who are commercially active within the industry. Our track record proves this to be true as we are constantly enrolling new students that have already completed apprenticeships or have studied in further education colleges but do not have the practical skills to gain employment or to freelance. Prior to the London Hair Academy, apprenticeships and further education were the only real choices a student had. The London Hair Academy is a breath of fresh air and provides a new direction which the industry desperately needs – find your inspiration with us!

Aftercare – London Hair Academy is the only academy to have its own dedicated website for students to secure work and opportunities after training. This specialist website also has a directory where industry professionals can list themselves and aims to be the UK’s #1 directory for the industry.

Small Classes – Our classes are run numerous times throughout the year but are kept very small – no more than 6 students – in order to maximise the learning potential and learning outcomes. This ensures plenty of attention and one-to-one focus from specially trained educators.
At the London Hair Academy students never spend time working on each other, live models are provided further enhancing your learning experience.

Flexibility – Unlike most schools, the London Hair Academy specialises in tailoring courses to specific needs and requirements. Whether you have a full time job, or have other commitments that prevent you from attending our normal timetable, we can accommodate you.

Let us know if you can only attend evening courses, weekends, or just one day a week! We will do our best to create a timetable specifically for you. We can even create new courses with content you would like to learn! Call us now to discuss your personalised course.

The Educators – Everyone who works for the London Hair Academy has had a vast amount of experience within the industry and is credited by their achievements on their portfolio. This means students receive detailed teaching on technical creative techniques and skills, and also benefit from their contacts and commercial understanding as working stylists.

Discounts for Our Students – We have teamed up with a number  of hair, beauty and makeup brands to offer discounts to all of our graduate  students. Click here to see all the companies who offer discounts to our students on completion of any of our courses at the London Hair Academy.
