Professional Hair Education: Improve your Craft and Learn new Skills

Taking an educational course in Professional Hair Colouring, Cutting or Styling could be the best decision you ever make..

  • You will learn how to use professional products from the brands (like Matrix and Affinage) themselves. They are the developers and ultimately the experts and will show you new techniques that you perhaps didn't know to make the most of the money your salon is spending on these necessary products and the services you offer with them.
  • They will teach you about the latest trends in your industry that your clients will be asking for. You need to stay up to date in this area so that you can offer the very best results to each and every client while remaining relevant and current.
  • You will also learn of any improvements to what you would call your classic services or staple techniques to impress and retain your loyal, long-standing clients.
  • Education doesn't just cover HOW TO colour, cut and style but also gives you tips and suggestions on the business, and salon-running side of things. Helpful advice on marketing, new business development and more go hand in hand with all courses as ultimately it's all connected. Know WHY you are learning and how you can make the most of your newly acquired skills.
  • Both Matrix and Affinage have demonstrated a passion for Social Media and reaching out to their audience using platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. Follow them now for some ideas to use towards your own Social Media marketing. Tag them during and after your education when you are putting it into practice for even more exposure.
