Course Overview

Immediate start for this course!
Our courses start throughout the year so why wait!

The London Hairdressing Apprenticeship Academy (LHAA) is a dynamic and innovative vocational training organisation that specialises in high quality hairdressing and barbering training at one of our state of the art hairdressing academies in Borehamwood, Camden, Chiswick, Loughton and Croydon. 

With our combined Level 2 and 3 Diploma in Hairdressing, you will achieve both qualifications attending our academy 2 days a week for a year. Our adult courses are perfect if you're looking to launch your career as a hairdresser, with no experience necessary.

Each of our Academies is equipped with a state of the art training hairdressing and barbering salon and we offer training that is designed to deliver a real work based experience. Our technical training team are all professional teaching staff from within the industry to ensure that the training reflects current trends and meets the needs of hairdressing salons and barber shops.

All the staff at LHAA are friendly and helpful. I completed my NVQ level 2 in Hairdressing on the adult course which helped me get a job in a salon. I enjoyed training with LHAA so much I have decided to stay on to study for NVQ level 3. I would definitely recommend LHAA to anyone who is thinking about training to be a Hairdresser.
