Prepare yourself for an apprenticeship with our Level 1 study programme. This qualification will introduce you to the practical skills needed across the barbering industry, and will provide a foundation for future learning. You will be performing hair services as well as assisting others in the salon.
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, Croydon and Loughton.
All the staff and hairdressing trainers are so supportive – I am really enjoying the training days at the Academy – The salon itself is fantastic. I’m having a great time and so glad I joined when I did.Yassi, Borehamwood
