Are you interested in a new career but do not have the time or money to quit your current job? We offer part-time hairdressing courses to help provide flexibility with current day living and the demands of London life. Please note: all courses are on a Monday only between 09:30 – 5:30 (we close for Bank Holidays and the Christmas Break)

Our variety of private hairdressing courses are designed for both beginners with no experience, those who wish to progress to advanced hairdressing; or anyone wishing to update new skills

Classes are held on a Monday where you will complete both theory and practical elements of hairdressing training; working on live models in our state-of-the-art salon based in Wimbledon. Alongside your Monday classes, you are also provided with hairdressing training elements to complete as part of your course. 

We offer both Full Courses for those who wish to master all the elements of the course to become a successful hairdresser and Bespoke Courses for those who may wish to master certain aspects of the craft, brush-up on cutting or colouring; or help fast-track you through your current hairdressing course if you are studying elsewhere but feel like you have fallen behind.
