LEVEL 1: BASICS
Immersed in the practical and hands-on aspects of cutting hair, you will develop a solid foundation of skills and knowledge to build upon throughout the program. Cutting, shampooing, draping, wet setting and thermal styling go hand in hand with client relation skills and the science behind the style: trichology, anatomy, bacteriology and sanitation. Through hands-on practice, in-class demonstrations and mannequin work, you’ll gain a “toolkit” of style elements that will allow you to replicate any cut. You’ll also develop the confidence to make the move from the classroom to Q&A, our student salon, where you’ll perform your new skills on real clients in real time.
LEVEL 2: COLOUR THEORY

Channel your inner scientist in this extensive study of the chemical processes of hair. From perming and thermal straightening to hair reforming and chemical blowouts, you’ll learn to safely formulate chemical reactions for texturing and relaxing your clients’ locks.

LEVEL 4: EXTENSIONS
Big volume is big business. Add value to your freelance repertoire by learning the theory and practical application of natural and synthetic hair extensions. Learn to cornrow hair for single and full-head braids, apply hair and attach wefts to a single-track row, double track row and full head weave placement. Delving deeper into the art of extensions, we’ll examine different styles of individual strand applications, including fusions, clip-ins, tape-ins and Euro Locks. Our expert instructors will guide you through wig building and custom fitting, and coach you in the importance of client consultation.
LEVEL 5: MAKEUP
A well-rounded hair professional who can execute a complete look will always have a competitive edge. From casual daytime makeup and evening glamour to bridal glow and photoshoot-ready skin corrections, this course gives you an introduction to professional makeup application. By developing makeup techniques and product knowledge, you will be able to complete a beauty look with confidence for your client’s special day, for a fashion editorial, or to enhance your salon’s service menu.
LEVEL 6: HAIR FOR TV & FILM
From the artful disarray of Edward Scissorhands to the double buns of Princess Leia, hair professionals have been making on-screen icons for decades. In this course we will guide you through every aspect of Hair for Television and Film. Starting with set etiquette, you’ll learn how to work with a creative team and navigate the complex world of film unions. We’ll coach you in the trinity of critical production skills: script breakdown, character development and maintaining continuity. Putting theory into practice, you’ll conceive and create a winning on-screen look, which will be captured in a professional photoshoot.
LEVEL 7: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Here’s where your creativity takes flight. Together we’ll examine the latest hair trends and techniques for runway and fashion editorial, break down on-set etiquette and show you how to coordinate hair with the artistic vision of a creative team – makeup artists, fashion stylists and photographers. Your portfolio will take shape as you develop styles for avant-garde, editorial, bridal, elegant evening, long hair and fantasy looks for a series of professional photo shoots.
LEVEL 8: DESIGN FORUM
Time to show us, and yourself, everything you’ve learned so far. You’ll design blueprint formulations and structures of signature cut and colours, before turning them into reality on live models for a professional photoshoot. Learn how to work with a photographer and understand the basics of lighting. ‘Before’ and ‘After’ photos will be a perfect addition to your growing professional portfolio.
LEVEL 9: ART & TECHNOLOGY
In today’s digital world it is essential to be able to market yourself online.
