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.

LHAA really listened to me about what I am looking for in a salon and helped me find somewhere that I could build on my experience and skills. This was just as important as my training to help me develop myself and my career. My Tutor is really supportive and I am learning so much.
