Honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made…The teaching is exceptional, every student gets the help they need and never one did I feel I wasn’t getting the attention or tuition I required…It’s fully prepared and developed me as a stylist.

Brooke Lee Davies, THE ART OF HAIR STYLINGLondon 2019

The AFRO HAIR course exceeded my expectations! We came away with so much knowledge and I learnt so many different techniques. There is so much background work going on to make sure students are getting the best education. I cannot recommend this academy highly enough!

I had the pleasure of doing 3 courses and I couldn’t be more delighted and thankful about how Kevin and Martin drive the learning sessions. A very highly educative program, where every technique is carefully broken down and taught in order to provide students with the most competitive and current techniques.
