The academy

Falltricks Hairdressing Academy has been producing talented young hairdressers for the past 9 years. The 5 years prior to that students attended the Training School, which due to overwhelming interest had to be moved to the larger state-of-the-art academy in 2006.

The staff’s commitment to excellence is paramount to the academy's success and every apprentice that walks through the academy's doors on day one, with no experience of hairdressing, will leave at the end of their training, with not only their hairdressing NVQ Levels 2-3, but also commercially ready to work as a graduate stylist in any high street salon.
