GRAHAM JOHNSTON, TEXTURE CUTTING2022

I traveled from Alaska to attend the 3 week intensive course and it was worth every penny. I learned SO much more than I expected and absolutely loved the course! It was intensive, very hands on, exciting, and so much fun. Kevin is an amazing teacher, very down to earth and passionate about his job. He shared his knowledge, techniques, and experiences in hair styling and took his time with each one of us.

After taking the course, I feel so much more confident styling any hair type and I have amazing photos to prove my newfound talent, thanks to Kevin and Martin.

Attending Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy was one of the best learning experiences I've ever had. I am forever grateful for Kevin and Martin and everything they did for us. Love you guys!!

I traveled from Chicago to attend this academy and it was the best decision I have made for my career!
I took the courses Afro Hair, Hair Extensions and Pieces, and Lace Front Wigs. After searching and searching for courses like these in the states with no luck, I was ecstatic to find them being taught all in one place.

The afro hair course was the class I was most eager and apprehensive about. My worries were put to ease straight away. Questions and open conversations were encouraged which lead to really meaningful discussions. Jennie started the course by thoroughly covering the basics, from tools and techniques to product breakdowns. This was so helpful as we progressed to more advanced ways of manipulating the hair. Since Jennie and Kevin co-taught this course, I got a good idea of what is “always done” vs personal preference. It was helpful to hear both of their perspectives.

Kevin is a phenomenal educator. He is patient, concise and incredible caring. I could spend a whole year training with him and still have so much to learn. Martin made me feel comfortable from the very moment I reached out. Any question I had regarding booking he answered almost immediately, even when they were on vacation! All around, everyone and everything was fantastic.

I could go on for days about my experience here but I’m going to cut myself off. If you do any type of session or celebrity work, I would recommend all of these courses.

Thank you Kevin, Martin, and Jennie!! You all have had a profound effect on me. So grateful for you and can’t wait to come back

Kristin Kaide2020

Attending the Kevin Fortune Academy was truly one of my most favorite educational and inspirational experiences thus far. I'm a salon owner in the states and have been a salon hairstylist for 28 years, primarily focused on coloring and cutting hair. I'd never taken the time to delve deeply into styling techniques. I am so glad I did and so so grateful to Kevin and Martin for making my 3 week journey an absolutely amazing experience. I appreciate that the course is focused on very foundational techniques that I can use, practice, create with, and expand upon. Thank you so much Kevin Fortune Academy! Love you guys!

I recently attended the 3 week art of hair styling course in August and it was absolutely incredible ! I choose this course as I wanted to feel confident hairstyling as I'm a make up artist who did hair, what I gained from this course was a love of hairstyling, the Afro hair part of the course is invaluable I have already gained so much work from the skills I have learnt. Kevin's teaching methods and wealth of knowledge is priceless I recommend this course to anyone looking to gain or expand their knowledge. Martin and Kevin are truly the nicest people you will meet and doing this course is the best decision I have made for my career I wish I had done it years ago!

Zoe Moore2018

Honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made. I never review anything but I’d never forgive myself if I didn’t put out there how INCREDIBLE Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy is.

The teaching is exceptional, every student gets the help they need and never once did I feel like I wasn’t getting the attention or tuition I required. Even with having zero hair experience and being on a course with others who had worked in salons etc, I still didn’t feel inadequate or left behind. Along with this, the experience of Kevin and other tutors shines through and they are able to give you true and solid advice and answers to questions, as well as just being wonderful and lovely people.

Another thing to note is the kit you need for the course (if you don’t already have) is really well advised, I used everything that was recommended to bring- so many times in the past I’ve had to buy kits or bits and bobs for learning and you end up not using loads of it and it’s so frustrating - but not in this case! On top of this: you are given all the styling products required, along with extensions and lots of equipment and are given opportunity’s to use and experiment with all while learning about them. Everything you could possibly need is in the academy.

Furthermore - and likely most importantly: I truly feel I’ve learned something. That might sound stupid, but what I mean is I feel ready and able to do hair now. It’s fully prepared me and developed me as a stylist. I’ve gone from being terrified to touch hair on set to feeling confident completing consultations and completing multiple styles. Expect to complete the course and come out fully able to achieve whatever it was you went there to learn.

So much more to say but can’t fit it in- my only regret is not doing this course sooner!

I can’t thank you guys enough!

Brooke Lee Davies2019

I attended the two day blowdrying course in November and it was outstanding. It was incapsulated with everything you need to learn. Kevin is true professional and excellent in teaching. He started with teaching the basics and then moved to the practical part explaining everything you need to know. He did make sure that I was on point with my technique at all times even though I asked him around 20 times how to do it !

Kevin and Martin are both amazing in everyway and above all super friendly and relaxed. I would definetely consider doing more courses in the near future. The two day blowdrying course is brilliant for makeup artists that want to add hair skills to their services.

Natalie Kamal2019

I’ve just completed the 2 day blow drying course with Kevin- I can’t recommend it enough- detailed, hands on practice and very informative. Kevin is super talented and super friendly, and you leave with lots of new skills and tips.

Laura Martin2019

I attended the Afro hair 3 intensive day course in December 2018.
I couldn’t recommend this course more.

From day 1 you see Kevin wants to share his wealth of knowledge and skills and see every stylist be able to tackle any hair type and for all clients/ models/ actors to feel comfortable and in safe hands.

With the small class size you feel able to ask as many questions as you need and it’s such a practical few days, it’s worth every penny. From the chemistry of the strand to protective styles and finished looks you walk away with so much information and new knowledge.

Thanks Kevin and Martin and I’ll be looking into the other courses for sure!

Bethany Swan2018

I attended the two day lace front wigs course, and it was excellent! I have worked in live entertainment for 8 years and have had some wig training in the past but this course really added to my knowledge and confidence with natural wigs.
Kevin and Michael are wonderful humans who couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. Kevin is a great teacher and his knowledge is endless.
I would highly recommend taking a course with these lovely gents!
It was so good I will be taking another course when the timing fits.

Thank you Kevin and Michael, see you soon!

Rachel Donoghue2018

Last week I did an afro hair course at the Kevin Fortune Hair Academy which covered a wide variety of styles like braiding and bantu knots. The pace of the course was a bit fast as it was 3 days but Kevin and Martin were so lovely and were always happy to help. I would recommend as I learnt a lot and now feel more confident. Thank you!

Anyone who is thinking of doing a hair course needs to do one at the Kevin Fortune Academy. Kevin and Martin have put so much love and passion into their course and it immediately shows. This is not your average college course. Everything was well organised and everyone had the time to learn, try, make mistakes (which was never a bad thing) and to learn from them. Kevin's extensive hair knowledge helps you understand the structure of hair which is vital to learning how to style it. My favourite part has to be the photo shoot at the end of the course. It was so professional with well established photographers and a designer, a great opportunity for anyone who wants to enter the fashion industry. I can not thank Kevin and Martin enough for an amazing three weeks. I learned so much and will never forget my time there.

Abby Lemar2017

I knew I had found something priceless when I stumbled upon the Kevin Fortune Hairstyling Academy.
On closer look at the curriculum on their site, I was sure that I would want to do this course some day. however, 3 weeks was too long a duration for me to leave my salon back home in mumbai. So I had to think twice about the schedule before I could go ahead and register for the course. And today after having attended it, I wish those 3 weeks were 6 weeks instead!!
Kevin is such a great trainer. His passion for hair is so evident in everything he does.
He is a bundle of knowledge, sharing with us the best tricks that he conjured up while working on hair over the years. Besides his trainer persona, he is such a wonderful human being and with a great sense of humor.
I have to recommend this course to anyone wanting to excel at the their Hairstyling skills.
It has definitely made me very confident in my work .

Thank you Kevin
Stay Blessed ????

Placid Braganza2018

I have recently completed Kevin Fortunes Session Hair course and could not recommend it enough.
Working as a hair and makeup artist for TV and Film I was already quite confident in some areas of hair but Kevin took each individual on my course into account and made sure everyone was equally challenged. As a result I feel so much more confident with hair than I ever thought I could be after just five days.
Kevin was great at ensuring each individual really grasped the technique before moving forward.
Moreover the whole course had a really fun eliminate to it and Martin, the creative director, was always about to help and made me feel very welcome with his friendly charm.

Thank you so much Martin and Kevin, I loved my week with you and learnt so much. Just wish I could do it all over again.

Rebecca Clare2018

So let’s start with day 1 when I was met upon arrival by the warmest smile, I was instantly put at ease and made welcome by Martin and Kevin. Both of these guys work so hard to share there vast amount of knowledge and expertise in your time with them and no question goes unanswered but they also have fun. I have attended several courses over my years in the hair industry and this 3 week intensive course has given me back my passion and drive, I can’t express my gratitude to both of them for delivering an amazing 3 weeks and recommend anyone to do either the full program or modules. I hope to met with you both again love Sarah xx

Sarah Ganley2018

I’m a professional makeup artist and wanted to enhance my skills and branch out into hair. Having done some research for hair courses in London, this course suited my needs in terms of course length as it is an intense three week course.
The Kevin Future Academy course was an incredible experience and I finished the course with some fantastic skills for hair styling and a greater understanding in the art of hair. Kevin and Martin were amazing - Kevin’s attention to detail and and his expertise are second to none. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to take hair styling to the next level.

Sarah Ganley2018

I just attended the brilliant 2 day blow drying course to refresh my skills and practice new techniques. I learnt so much and had so much fun whilst doing so. I gained a huge amount of knowledge and confidence together with a great bunch of like minded people of all abilities and experience. Thank you so much Kevin for your patience and all the skills you passed on to us. And thank you to you and Martin for creating such a relaxed and friendly learning environment.
I thoroughly recommend the courses at the Academy, they are the perfect resource for a complete novice or any experienced make-up artist wanting to refresh or expand their skills.

Christine Nicklin-Rivett2018

2 day blow drying course with Kevin was amazing. I had so much fun and he taught me so many things in a way I never understood about hair!

Thank you for sharing your skills and knowledge!! I am going back to take more of his classes. See you soon.

Kathy Jung2018

I’m a make up artist by trade, and felt the necessity to further my knowledge into this unknown territory. Kevin and Martin are both genuine, approachable, fun, and encouraging. Kevin is an excellent teacher and would go out of his way to make sure you fully understand the tools and techniques that are being offered, with patience and grace. Hands down one of the best courses out there, after three weeks I feel more confident about the abilities I’ve mastered. I am living proof that you may know almost next to nothing about hairstyling and still feel welcomed and learn a lot! Not only have I gained some know-how, but I honestly feel I’ve gained two mentors and friends. Thank you for the good times, and hopefully see you soon for many other courses!

Isabella Sarti2015

I had an absolute amazing two days with Kevin Fortune learning blow drying techniques on the 2 day intensive course. I learnt so much, would definitely recommend the course.

Leah-Jane Scarborough2018

I had a fun and enjoyable experience doing Kevin's lace front wig course. Kevin brought us to a wig outlet to choose our own wig pieces and took us through the making of a wig. This was also beneficial as we got to experience first hand the wig makers in action.
Kevin is one in a million, as mentioned by other stylists, he has a special way of teaching which makes me feel inspired. He has great patients (especially with me ), his way of teaching is truly magical and hypnotic as he breaks every step down for you to understand- which motivates me to learn more. Martin and Kevin have a special and unique partnership which works brilliantly for the academy- the praise and individual acknowledgment they portray to each student is something you do not see at any other school. Their encouragement makes me want to achieve the best I can be and prove to myself "I can do it". Thank you boys xxx

Shauna Taggart2015

Thankyou so much to Kevin and Martin for giving nothing but the best throughout this course, which ever part that may be. They are very knowledgeable and give more than just an insite to working with hair. Highly recommend being apart of the fun and seeing what it all about ��

Stephanie Costa2016

I loved every single day at the academy! Kevin and Martin are fantastic at what they do. Kevin is such a skilled hairstylist and so passionate about his work. It's really contagious!! I feel very motivated and inspired! They really go into depth even thou it's an intense course. I have done other haircourses in London but none of them comes close to this one!

Åsa Elmgren2016

My experience at Kevin Fortune Academy...

Monday 24th November 2014, I attended two courses in 1 week at the Kevin Foutune Academy; learning Blowdrying and Period Styling Techniques. The classes consisted of a small group of six ladies from the beauty, make-up or hairdressing industry; we all had different levels of hair experience but all had the same objective – to learn new and different styling techniques and Kevin does not disappoint.

Each morning before the group arrived, Kevin already in the studio, prepped for the day’s lesson to start at 10 am prompt. Kevin demonstrated many techniques with such ease, which for many of us in the group took hours to perfect…almost! Kevin is the master. But it was no trouble for Kevin to go over a particular technique again until the individual felt happy they understood all the steps to continue and practice for the rest of the lesson. Some of the styling techniques were challenging and Kevin would break down the process into steps. At one stage Kevin compared learning a particular curl formation to driving a car for the first time since there are several manoeuvres to remember simultaneously to produce 1 curl and without burning your fingers!! But it is a great feeling when you are heading in the right direction; Kevin always would comment “Good, Great, You’ve got it!”

Kevin is very passionate about his craft. He is patient, funny and very positive throughout your time at the Academy. He is attentive to each individual’s level of skills and ability, giving good advice when something needs tweaking. Kevin shares many stories of his experiences he encountered throughout his successful career, he instils confidence within the group that with practice, practice and more practice! We all can achieve great results.

Thank you Kevin for a great five days and also to Martin for your warm welcomes and uplifting energy; and too not forgetting Sherman Hawthorne another great session stylist who spent a day teaching the group at the academy.

If you are looking for a course that provides great teaching, top tips of styling hair and an insight into world of session work, then I would recommend you contact the Kevin Fortune Academy.

Enjoy

Pauline Adekoya2014

I loved the 2 day course at the academy in Londen! I Learned a lot about afro/black hair. You can see they love what they do and they know what they talk about (of course) I would really recommend to anybody who wants to learn from the best��� - greetings from the Netherlands �

Shanna Vrolijk2017

Fantastic two days on the Blow Drying Techniques course. Kevin and Martin couldn't be more helpful and Kevin's techniques really do work. Thank you for the skills i learn and new facts about hairs. Highly recommended.

Angel Bautista2017

Editorial, Extensions, Afro Techniques and High Fashion, just a peep into whats available to learn from The Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy.
I Have had the pleasure of watching an idea cocoon into a butterfly which is now The K.F.H.S.A which attracts an abundance of enthusiastic students, local and international of all ages and experience, seeking knowledge to add to their hairdressing repertoire.
It is a great joy to for me to be regularly invited as a session hairstylist to contribute as a guest tutor on my knowledge from the hairdressing industry.

Sherman Hawthorne2014

With our students we did a 2 Day training "Black Hair". We all loved it and learnd a lot of New stuff. Thank you Kevin and Martin.

Barbara de Koning2017

I attended the 3 day AFRO HAIR COURSE at the academy and let’s just say I’m now addicted! I was recommended this course by a past student and boy did it deliver. There was only a small group of 5 so we learnt intensely from the main man himself -Kevin & A list Stylist Jenny Roberts.

I was super impressed as there was some science thrown in from a guest trichologist. I am not a fully fledged hair guru having my experience as a stylist not a hairdresser so my exceptions were exceeded to say the least. I can’t tell you how quick I learnt in so little time but it all came with ease due to the method of their teaching! Absolutely impeccable knowledge showered the class room so we could be armed ready for styling right away on completing the course. Some of the things I learnt were so new to me, but I managed to pick them up quickly to my astonishment. I couldn’t even braid at all prior to the course and within a few hours I was doing it at speed, it was phenomenal.

Kevin & Jenny’s unique teaching methods were second to none and they had so much respect for you as an individual artist. I have been a makeup & hair Artist in TV & Film for over a decade and choosing to up my game at this academy was the best decision ever! If you want to learn from the best, have fun & love a challenge I can’t recommend this course enough. Martin thanks for being so fantastic too making sure we had all we needed from start to finish, you really are the best academy out there!

I will be BACK very soon ❤️

I just finished the Session Styling Course of 5 days at the Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy, and I absolutely LOVED it!! I came to the course with high expectations, and they were more than fullfilled! The way he takes his time with everyone, and explains everything so clearly. There were a few things that I wanted to learn, and in the end I've learned so much more. Definitely coming back next year for another course! X

Tynke Jeeninga2019

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 high educative programe where every technique is carefully broken down and taught in order to provide the students with the most competitive and current techniques.
I am looking forward to continuing my learning at Kevin Fortune Academy.

I’m so pleased to have completed the 3 day Intensive Afro hair course, it was one of the most interesting and we’ll put together courses I’ve ever been on. Kevin is a fantastic tutor with such enthusiasm and talent. The course covered a huge amount in such a short space of time but it did not feel overwhelming and solid support was given regardless of experience level. I was especially impressed that they had invested in trichology experts and professional hair models for the final project, I feel the course was incredible value for money considering all these added extras that you do it usually get on courses. Highly recommended

Vox Hairdressing2019

A few weeks ago I attended the 3 day Afro Hair Styling course and I cant recommend it enough! Kevin provides an informative safe space to discuss techniques and tools, as well as sharing his wide ranging experience with the group. The course provides great combination of in-depth theory, paired with plenty of hands on training which has left me feeling immeasurably more confident! Thank you Kevin and Martin x

Karen Bradshaw2019

Kevin Fortune-the most down to earth celebrity hairstylist I've ever met. Both passionate and humble about his work. He's your go to guy for achieving perfect hair ????. I attended the afro hair styling course and loved and learnt so much. Thanks so much Kevin !

Gabriella Ventura Cox2019

I completed both the intensive Session Hair course and the Afro Hair course and I learned so much on both courses! My notebook was so full after doing these! I recommend them both, both if you don't have much experience with hair I'd recommended doing the three week hair course instead of the intensive one so you have more time to learn as the intensive one moves quite quickly. You can also buy European and Afro hair dolls which I highly recommend so you can practice after the courses. I got an Afro one and I absolutely love it. I've recommended the academy to my makeup students and what I've learned has added to my skills hugely which is what I wanted. A great place to learn!

Teresa R's2019

hello,
I did my 2 weeks course with Kevin fortune and it was just amazing. I have learnt different techniques and some gorgeous editorial work. Kevin and Martin were Soo supportive and always there to help.
We had this amazing field trip to this huge store trust me all the hairdressers would go mad if they visit that place and I am Soo thankful to both Kevin and Martin to accompany and organize that trip.
Thank you Soo much for this amazing 2 weeks that I had I wish I could stay longer.
good luck and all the best I will definitely do another course with u.

Sana Pathan2019

I attended the 2 day blow dry course with Kevin and found it extremely helpful! Kevin was patient and talked us through different techniques with expert guidance.

I went into the course looking more for a refresher as I'd picked up some bad habits over the years. I felt I left the course knowing what I was doing wrong and how to correct myself and do a better job going forward.

Both Martin & Kevin are so approachable and welcoming and made the whole experience a joy. As another reviewer said below, there was no stupid question and you were encouraged to interact.

I'd highly recommend them to anyone thinking of doing a course, you will definitely learn, have fun and come away feeling inspired!

Thank you Kevin & Martin! �

Salina Thind2018

I recently attended the two day blow drying course and loved it.

Being a blow dry novice, I really wanted to learn the basics from a pro. Kevin broke down the techniques for even a beginner like me. He talks through structure of hair, hair care aswell as different techniques for speed and long lasting styles that are on trend.

I thoroughly enjoyed learning from Kevin, no question was a stupid question. He encourages the group to interact with each other, I was in a such a friendly group from all different parts of the industry, we all learnt from each others mistakes while Kevin gently told us how to improve our techniques.

I feel a lot more confident now and I cant wait to keep practicing what ive learnt and book onto another course next year!!

Kevin and Martin welcomed me and made me feel part of the KF family. You can tell they are passionate about their jobs and helping others. Thanks again for the career advice too Kevin xx

Hannah Monk2017

Once again I had an such an amazing experience at the Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy. I recently completed the 3 day Editorial and Catwalk course. It gave us the chance to basically have a practice run at a photo shoot (the photo shoot was very real!) we were given the opportunity to put our creative juices to use and come up with a concept for the shoot. I now feel fully confident on how to prepare, how to express my vision, and what to expect on a shoot. As a hair stylist in a salon I sometimes find it hard to find the variance between salon hair and editorial hair. Kevin is amazing at showing little details that make the difference. Having previously taken the 5 day intense session course I had all new techniques to use when coming up with my concept on the shoot. Again I can not recommend this academy enough. Kevin and Martin are truly the nicest people you will meet. I always leave feeling energized and excited about hair and all avenues you could take. Thank you again guys!

Shannon Sheehan Davison2018

I joined the session hairstyling course in Nov ‘18 with no skills in hairstyling whatsoever. I encountered some difficulties throughout the course but Kevin spent so much time with me making sure I would get every single technique he was teaching that I felt I left the course with a lot of knowledge and skills that I didnt thought I would be able get in 5days. The class was small it was just 3 of us which I absolutely loved. I would recommend to everyone looking to upgrade thei skills or like me learn from the beginning to join this course or any other at the KF hairstyling Academy. So worth it. Thanks to Martin as well who had been an angel sorting out my brush order and any other question I asked before and throughout the course.

Francesca Quagliatti2018

Amazing course. Loved every minute. Highly Recommend. Can’t wait to do more!!

Joe Pickering2018

I would like to thank Kevin and Martin for their amazing costumer service and knowledge.
I completed the two day blow dry hair course and it was amazing wish I had book a long course. Kevin had a lot of helpfull techniques and skills that he shared with us.

Also I would recommend getting anything you need for your kit from Martin and Kevin as they have many affordable applicances and products available.

I give this course a 5 stat rating and I highly recommend it.

Morgan Defre2018

AMAZING is an understatement! One of the best courses I have been on. It truly is an intensive week long session course. Kevin is beyond talented and his ability to break down and teach a technique is one of a kind. He took his time with each student till we understood and got a grip of the technique. I would completely recommend the Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy. There is a course for everyone!

Shannon Sheehan2018

Attended the 3 week course here and have had an experience better than I could have imagined. Kevin is the most patient and humorous teacher and makes learning everyday super easy. Martin has been of such great help through the entirety of the course. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone wishing to develop greater skills with hairstyling or even makeup artists branching into hair. Cheers.

Riviera Vaz2018

I was really nervous about doing the Afro hair course as I had no salon experience but had been recommended to go to The Kevin Fortune Academy if I wanted to learn to do Afro hair correctly. From the moment I met Kevin and Martin I was put totally at ease. They are such lovely, warm and positive people who encourage and boast your confidence all the way through. I also did the hair extension and hair pierce course and I feel so confident in my new abilities. The course is really interesting and yet Kevin makes the lessons fun as well. I would recommend anyone who wants to learn any aspect of hairdressing to go to The Kevin Fortune Academy. I loved every minute.

Frankie2018

Earlier this month we visited Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy in London. We followed an intensive Afro hairstyling course. We started with a theoretical part and Kevin showed us different styling and cutting techniques. Later on we got to practice ourselves doing several techniques in natural hairstyles and cutting on mannequin heads. During the second day we got to do some techniques on models. Kevin not only taught us the things we needed to know about the hair and texture of it, he also taught us how to approach our clients and the do’s and don’ts in associating with them an treating their hair.
We were welcomed at the academy very warmly and were challenged from the beginning to the end of the course. We all have learned very much in a very short period of time, and looking back with pride, much gratitude and warm feelings.

Thanks Kevin and Martin for the lovely time with you and the amazing experience at the academy! See you again soon!

Diane Busch2018

If there are any makeup artists out there who want to update their skill set in hair, then look no further. This is the course for you! I have had so much fun and really gained invaluable skills from taking part in a number of Kevin’s courses. Kevin is a patient and knowledgeable teacher and would definitely recommend to everyone. Thank you for giving me more confidence with hair!!

Clare Wood2018

Absolutly loved every minute off my time with Kevin and Martin they are so welcoming and friendly � I learnt so much in the two days i was with them, its amazing what you can learn in two days and Kevin is so talented I learnt so many new skills, tips and tricks that i will carry on with me in the future ☺ would highly reccommend the lace front wigs course. I will definately be returning in the future for more training.

Fionnuala Wilson2016

As a session stylist I think it's important to refresh your memory at least once a year and learn new skills. When I attended the Kevin Fortune Hairstyling Academy I was expecting to learn the average amount you can in a week. However after being in the class room for not even two hours my opinion had dramaticall changed... Kevin's warm, gentle and inspiring approach to teach truly oozes off him when he talks about the art of hair. I was taught and succeeded in things I thought I'd never be able to excel in and it's all down to the love that Kevin and Martin have for the school...
I would highly recommend any of the courses at the school and am planning to attend the blow drying course in September too! Sign up and attend, it'll be the best course you've ever done!

I am so happy I chose to complete the three week Art of Hair Styling course at the Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy. It really is an expertly run course. Kevin is an amazing teacher with the patience and positivity of a saint; I've never met anyone like him. Creative Director, Martin, is full of creative exuberance and is always so warm and ready to help. He is also very skilled with a camera and took some amazing shots of our work throughout the course, and came into his element on the shoot day in his role as Art Director! Together they make the Academy an inspiring and fun place to learn.

The guest tutors were also wonderful and ready to share their knowledge. All tutors are still working in the industry and are at the top of their game, so you know you are in the best possible hands and that you are learning the most current techniques and trends.

The course was well-structured and I learned so much. As the course is open to already established hairstylists as well as novices (like myself), I was worried that I would be out of my depth, but I need not have been. Kevin made sure that he spent ample one-on-one time with everyone, demonstrating and re-demonstrating techniques until we grasped them.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend the Kevin Fortune Hair Styling Academy. Thank you, Kevin and Martin, for having me there. Xx

I took 5-day fashion blow drying and tonging course weeks ago.

Kevin is a very inspiring and passionate teacher and Nick who was our guest tutor is professional and energetic. Throughout the session, they attended to students' needs and provided personal attention whenever possible.

I would recommend this course especially to those who are starting out new aspiring to build a strong fundamental in this field.

Thanks Kevin & Matin for creating such a warm and fun learning environment and see you guys soon!

I attended the Keving Fortune Hairstyling Academy in September 2014 and completed the 3 week course in ‘The Art of Hair Styling’. So what can you learn in three weeks you may ask? We started the course with blow drying techniques and completed it with a professional photo shoot including clothes designer, photographer, makeup artist, creative director, models not to mention us as session stylists and the results where exceptional!

The course from start to finish was jam packed with techniques and skills taught and overseen by Kevin, whose passion for hair and love of life spills from every single pore and it is so infectious. We were very luck to have master classes taken by the renowned Denise McAdam who taught us beautiful vintage hairstyles and Sherman Hawthorne who taught us some excellent afro hair skils. Kevin runs the Academy with his partner Martin and between the two of them they make you feel like you are at home the moment you walk through the door. They both have the patience of saints (particularly with a certain student who was relatively new to hair!!!!!) and Martin is super talented at the creative thinking and imagery side of the school, not to mention his epic t-shirt collection!

If you are contemplating doing this course I can’t recommend a better place to learn in an environment where you will be made to feel wonderful and given the confidence to travel outside of your comfort zone from day one! My advice – DO IT!

Kevin was extremely thorough and helped every individual as much as was needed.
I will definitely be back next year! And would recommend to anyone. Many thanks to Kevin and Martin x

One of the best courses I've been on, in just two days I learnt so much about blowdrying and styling from knowing nothing.. Definitely going on another course in the future xx

Zara Kaplan2015

I loved the 4 days course at the academy in London . I learned a lot of Kevin and Martin. The now what they talk About . And i am definetely coming back for some more training!! Thanks for everything !!

Jorien Visser2017

So I'm a bit late writing this review but here it is finally ... I decided to do a refreshing course for session styling since I had a few days off ... initially I wasn't sure where to go so I just went online and found Kevin. .. The minute I saw the kevin fortune hairstyling academy website I knew I wanted to go there ... After a long long flight from India I finally reached the first day for class . From the second I entered with Martin n Kevin welcoming all the students I knew this was just going to be an AMAZING learning experience . I completed the entire ART OF HAIRSTYLING COURSE..
KEVIN is not just one of most talented hairstylist that I have met but such a gem to work with . He taught everyone in the class with so much patience and love ... His temperament to deal with each and every student is just so amazing .... what he teaches you is his style and technique which is OH SO AMAZING ... so if your a beginner or an established stylist u have so much to learn .
There were also a bunch of guest tutors who came in to teach us on few days ... and it's just a huge bank of talent ... so grab everything you see and hear ...
All of the teachers give so much attention to every single thing you do ... makes you feel like your in for a private class .
And lastly for MARTIN .... B.O.O.M ... He is such an inspiration ... He might not be involved with the training as such but in reality he is fully involved .. always pushing us to do better and create something great ... Thank you for all the pics you took and showcasing our work everywhere possible ...
Lastly I would just like to tell everyone reading this if your planning to learn something new or just refresh your present skills this is the place to come to ... There might be many courses you can choose from that you will see n hear about but I promise you that THE KEVIN FORTUNE academy won't disappoint ....
Love love n more love

Afro Hair Course

This was my second course at the academy. After attending the “Waving and curling techniques” masterclass back in May I decided I am definitely returning to do more courses with Kevin. I was so nervous, but at my arrival to the academy Martin and Kevin greeted me with a big smile and reassured me I am in good hands.
The Afro hair course exceeded my expectations.To have a better understanding of the course the academy even invited a trichologist to talk about the structure of the hair and specifically of the Afro textured hair. This was really helpful it helped us to understand why do we use certain techniques and products in order to achieve the desired hairstyle. Alongside Kevin we also had an amazing guest teacher Jennie Roberts who had extensive knowledge about Afro textured hair. Both Kevin and Jennie shared with us their knowledge passion and love towards Afro hair. We came away with so much knowledge and learnt so many different techniques. There is so much background work going on to make sure the students are getting the best education. I can not recommend this academy highly enough. I feel so lucky I can attend their courses. I have already booked myself onto the next course. Both Kevin and Martin are so professional and lovely people.

Editorial and Catwalk course

I cannot thank Martin and Kevin enough for this amazing experience. This course was a truly special one. This has been my third course at the Kevin Fortune academy.

The 3 day “Editorial and Catwalk” course was a completely new experience for me as I have never worked on a Photoshoot before. The first two days we learnt how to create beautiful editorial looks with Kevin and also we learnt about the etiquette on an editorial photoshoot.

We received valuable guidance from Martin about the creative process for building an editorial look. We were encouraged to use research and inspiration to create mood boards and to give presentations. Martin did a fantastic job of arranging for the collaboration with the designers, makeup artist, photographers and models which made this a real editorial experience. We had the privilege of working with world class professionals within the industry.

During the photoshoot day Kevin was on hand to offer advice and guidance for making our design a reality. His experience is second to none. He was able to keep us confident in a high pressure situation.

Both Kevin and Martin care about their students a great deal. You can tell how much they want their students to succeed. Thank you for being such an important and inspiring part of my career development.

This year in May I completed the course afro-hairstyling at the Kevin fortune hair styling academy. The skills and confidence I gained after only a week is phenomenal. The guidance throughout the whole course was well thought of and everything went smoothly. Kevin's knowledge is amazing and it absolutely helped me gain more clients confidently ! I really loved how we went in depth about the art of afro hair styling. Explaining how to become even more confident with your clients ,which I have been applying ever since I came back, and it has resulted in high confidence boost while working. Martin has been very helpful providing a smoothly run operation. I am so glad I took the chance to come from the Netherlands and expand my horizon in London. Thanks soo much you guys! You'll see me soon ❤ Siobhan Jacobs

I invested at the 5 Day intensive hair styling course at the Kevin Fortune Hairstyling Academy. It was the best course I ever done!!! Great praise to Kevin and Martin. I would recommend this course to everyone. The two have so much knowledge and experience. I will definitely come back for a another course. Thank you Kevin & Martin, greetings from Austria 🙂

Melanie Rieberer2019

I did the 3-day intense course for black hair with school. It's this special trip we do where we have a Kevin Fortune training, a Toni&Guy training and internship.
Safe to say that the Kevin Fortune training was the best thing of the trip. You can see and feel his enthusiasm of sharing his knowledge. He was really kind and explained everything really well. Which is sayin a lot as my group is from Holland so there was a language barrier.
Best training ever!

Amber de Koning2019

Having been working in the hair industry for over 20 years, I had been looking for courses to refresh my skillset and further inspire me. The Period Hairstyling Course at the Academy was Perfect!!!!
Kevin is an absolute master at what he does! His wealth of knowledge and expertise shines through and his passion and love for hair is infectious. An intense 3 days learning new techniques with an wonderful insight on creating and dressing the most incredible styles throughout the most iconic hairstyling eras. I loved every minute !!!
With the academy being so centrally located it is perfect and easy to find.
Both Kevin and Martin are so welcoming, helpful, patient, knowledgeable and talented I cannot recommend this course highly enough and cannot wait to get back for more courses with the boys !!!

Jenn Mathieson2018

I did the 5 day session hair course and loved every second of it! Kevin taught us so much in those 5 days. He was so patient with everyone and explained everything so clearly! He’s given me the confidence to experiment with hair and he’s taught me so many new techniques! Kevin and Martin are the most gorgeous humans I’ve ever met and made the course lots of fun! I want to go back in the new year to do a few of the other courses ???????? I highly recommend the academy ????xxx

Sophie Shoob2019

I’ve never met a hairstylist who has a passion for hair the way that Kevin does. In an industry that can sometimes be filled with incredibly pompous people, meeting Kevin is like taking a breath of fresh air.

He has a pride about his work that is incredibly inspirational and he is not afraid to show you all of his most famed secrets - in fact he actually genuinely wants everyone who comes to his course, no matter what aspect of the industry they come from, to be the best that they can be.

I took his winter 2018, three week intensive course and it is probably the best money I've ever spent. He and his partner Martin are the dynamic duo, welcoming everyone they meet with open arms. They both have a profound respect and integrity for the industry that is unmatched to any hairstylists I’ve met.

Teaching not just hands-on techniques, but delving into the science of the structure of a hair strand, how to properly care for the hair, discussing history’s impact on hair trends are just some of the things taught, which will remind you why you wanted to do hair in the first place.

If you are the kind of person who is normally intimidated by taking a class, if you feel like you’ve lost your love for the industry, or if you’re looking to feel that passion you felt when you started doing hair, this is the class for you.

Even after three weeks, you’ll walk away wanting more.

Skye Sands2018

I have just completed the 3 days waving and curling techniques masterclass. I enjoyed every moment of the course. Kevin is very knowledgeable, attentive and thorough with his demonstrations. He treats all his students individually depending on their level of skills. The course is very intense we covered a lot of different waving and curling techniques that you can use as a session stylist, bridal stylist or catwalk.
I would like to say a massive thank you to Martin as well who was extremely helpful from the moment I booked myself on the course. He was very responsive to queries.
Both Kevin and Martin are down to earth people. I can highly recommend their course to anyone who is willing to take their skills to the next level. I will definitely be back to attend more courses with them. I’m looking forward to put in practice everything Kevin thought us during the 3 days. Thank you Kevin and Martin for such a nice experience.
Warmest regards

I attended the two day blowdrying course in November and it was outstanding. It was incapsulated with everything you need to learn. Kevin is true professional and excellent in teaching. He started with teaching the basics and then moved to the practical part explaining everything you need to know. He did make sure that I was on point with my technique at all times even though I asked him around 20 times how to do it !

Kevin and Martin are both amazing in everyway and above all super friendly and relaxed. I would definetely consider doing more courses in the near future. The two day blowdrying course is brilliant for makeup artists that want to add hair skills to their services.

Natalie Kavafakis2019

The minute I walked into the 3 day course room I was made comfortable, as a mature student I was very nervous with fitting in but there was nothing for me to worry about. Kevin and Martin were the warmest, humblest and loveliest honest guys I have met , their professionalism and character building skills were outstanding to me as my confidence began to grow immediately as I talked to them.
I enhanced my learning theoretically with Afro hair as well as picked up new techniques and improved my skills with perfecting/ changing some of my methods. I originally used due to lack of experience working with Afro hair. I was given knowledge practically and theatrically on the right way to use and what products to buy. The best for me was it was hands on as much as possible,questions were answered straight away honestly and you were guided practically,correctly, intently, on a one to one to seal in the skill and check your understanding when necessary .
Jenny Roberts (very well known )professional stylist was introduced to give you a different prospective with her fabulous techniques which got you thinking differently but inspired you even more. My only sadness is that it went to quickly and I could not stay longer than three days. I would recommend this course and would also say if you can stay longer. It has left me hungry for more and will you. Can't wait for the next one coming up. Thanks guys for everything you do you are amazing.

Jeanine Sayle2017

I joined the session hairstyling course in Nov ‘18 with no skills in hairstyling whatsoever. I encountered some difficulties throughout the course but Kevin spent so much time with me making sure I would get every single technique he was teaching that I felt I left the course with a lot of knowledge and skills that I didnt thought I would be able get in 5days. The class was small it was just 3 of us which I absolutely loved. I would recommend to everyone looking to upgrade thei skills or like me learn from the beginning to join this course or any other at the KF hairstyling Academy. So worth it. Thanks to Martin as well who had been an angel sorting out my brush order and any other question I asked before and throughout the course.

Francesca Quagliatti2018

I have just completed a 5 day intensive course at the academy. (2 days blow drying and 3 days curling techniques). I was a complete beginner but Kevin was extremely patient with me as I wasn't as experienced as some others in the group. I have been working as a make-up artist and did this course as I found it was the case I needed to be able to do hair as well. I must say doing hair in the past hasn't been a passion of mine but since doing this course I feel completely inspired and want to keep doing it all the time now! I have learnt so much and am eager to try out all the new styles and techniques I have learnt. I also had a lot of support with with which products and tools I should get which was really helpful. I would definitely like to do the editorial course next as I got so much from this one. I'll be back!

Sonia Schofield2018

The three day intensive Afro hair course at the Kevin Fortune Hair Academy was nothing short of amazing

From being met in the morning with a huge welcoming smile from Martin- to the supported and friendly environment in the work room with Kevin, every step of the way i felt included and fully supported . The demonstrations were always spot on, and the entire group had the help they needed to progress to the next stage .

I have always had a passion for Afro textured hair, but this course really was instrumental in helping me to grasp the key concepts of what Afro textured hair really is. Most importantly , that you should never be afraid of styling an unfamiliar texture , but rather consider it as a fun opportunity to create incredible looks !

All three days were just as enjoyable as the rest . Kevin is incredibly talented and approachable . I would do the whole experience again and most definitely will return for more courses at the end of the year ! Thank you

Zaynab Adair2018

’ve just completed the two-day ‘Blow Drying’ course at the Kevin Fortune Academy and it was amazing! The customer care was flawless, thank you Martin for all your help! The course itself was brilliant, small class sizes to ensure good quality of assistance. The course program gave me a clear insight into the anatomy of hair, it’s needs and how best to ensure that the hair that you are styling is best looked after and how to style different hair types using styling products to cater for the hairs needs. Kevin gave very clear demonstrations and was very interactive with the class. It was both engaging and so insightful. I felt very enthusiastic about learning and so at ease! I now feel much more confident at blow-drying. We were given lots of opportunities to practise on good quality heads and could seek assistance if we needed it. I strongly recommend this course to complete beginners and even to those who have blow drying experience as you will learn something new, you will become more technical and have a deeper understanding of how to achieve different types of blow dries from creating a polished look to a contemporary blow-dry. I never thought I could learn so much in two days but I have. I work as a hair & make-artist and I can’t wait to use the valuable skills I’ve gained. I’m so looking forward to booking my next course! Kevin is very sought after in the industry and respected and I can totally understand why, his knowledge, experience and teaching is phenomenal!! You really are in the best hands training at this academy!! The best there is and great value for money! Thank you so much Kevin & Martin. XO

Monnie Kaur2018

I attended the 2 day blow dry course with Kevin and found it extremely helpful! Kevin was patient and talked us through different techniques with expert guidance. I felt I left the course knowing what I was doing wrong and how to correct myself and do a better job going forward. Both Martin & Kevin are so approachable and welcoming and made the whole experience a joy. I'd highly recommend them to anyone thinking of doing a course, you will definitely learn, have fun and come away feeling inspired!

Salina Thind2018

Wow... I am really blown away by the intensive session stylist course. I am predominantly a makeup artist but wanted to find a course that would give me enough confidence and skill to be able to take the jobs that needed me to be able to also do hair. This course has definitely done that for me. I have now gained multiple skills such as braiding, blowdring and different tonging techniques that are going to be so useful. Kevin’s knowledge is incredible and he’s so open with telling you all his tips and tricks. The way he teaches and breaks down the technique is really quite something. I want to thank both Kevin and Martin for their support from day 1 and already looking to do another one of their courses in the future. I’m still not perfect but have picked up very valuable skills that will allow me to execute the hair styles I want. This course isn’t just for makeup artists looking to broaden their skill but also hairdressers/stylists who want to challenge themselves and polish up on their own skill. I’m so glad I did this course and even though my brain is fried I can’t wait to use my new skills on upcoming jobs. Thank you again Kevin and Martin. X

Eliza Clarke2018

I attended the three week hair styling course and this was one of the best decisions I have ever made career wise.
From the time I sent an enquiry email to Martin till I graduated on the 25th of May it has only and only been an amazing experience.Martin was the kindest and most helpful person who answered all my queries extremely patiently and always made sure that I was comfortable .
About the course there is so much I would want to write, but I’ll keep it short, the unique part of this course is that Kevin has taken his personal work experiences and converted all of that into different modules which makes the course so interesting and fun.He is the kindest,funniest and the most patient teacher i have ever come across.He is full of life and makes everything look like a breeze.Even though every student was at a different level Kevin and Martin made sure that they gave everyone personal attention and always made sure everyone performed the best to their ability.
I would say On day 1 I walked in as an extremely scared and under confident artist but on the last day I walked out as a professional hairstylist feeling confident about my skills and extremely excited about this new career path.
I am extremely thankful and grateful to Martin and Kevin and all the amazing people I met during this course.you guys have an extremely special place in my heart .
I also would recommend this course to everyone who is interested in making a career as a hairstylist or even just looking to upgrade your skills this is the place for you’ll to be.
Thank you guys for everything
Lots and lots of love
Tanvi Chemburkar.

Tanvi Chemburkar2018

I absolutely loved my 2 day Blow Drying Technique course with Kevin and Martin.
The relaxed, friendly atmosphere was the perfect setting in which I learnt so much! You may think you know all you need to about Blow Drying but trust me there is so much more Kevin can teach you. I felt very lucky that he was willing to pass down his skills and tips and I have left the course feeling very confident and knowledgeable and completely up to date. Thanks guys hope to see you soon. x

Terri Gilham2017

Hey Kevin & Martin hope your well.. I know I'm a tiny bit late writing a review. But all I'm gonna say is I loved the 3 day training last year. I learned so much and picked up new techniques, tips and tricks. You both were so friendly and welcoming made my experience more enjoyable.. You are the best hair academy I have come across.. Stay blessed Kevin & Martin ��

Serii Shah2017

Five days of intensive studies gave me the knowledge and tools to take my skills up to a higher level. I was pushed and challenged in the most inspiring way and had the chance to be creative and experiment with a wide range of high-end brands. I particularly liked the structure of the classes; the mornings consisted of an in-depth theory and demonstration session followed by a practical session in the afternoons. Being tutored by one of the leading hair stylists in the industry was priceless. Kevin has this amazing ability to transfer his vast knowledge and experience and taught me to always give my 100%. Upon completing this course, I had a solid understanding of how the industry works and was able to immediately start using my new skills in editorial shoots and bridal work. It was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to master the art of hair styling. Thank you Kevin and team. xxxx

Eleni Tondi2015

I love this Academy! The courses are short, intensive and so well designed to fit in around work for busy professionals who wish to keep there skills current. Kevin is extremely generous with his knowledge and patience, and has a warm, light hearted manner that makes being around him such a pleasure.
I have just completed the 3 day catwalk and editorial styling segment, which culminated in a professional photoshoot (organised by fabulous Martin) and now have an arsenal of up to date techniques and inspirations that I can combine to create exciting and edgy styles, as well as some great photos, courtesy of our lovely model Ami, photographer Nick Andrew and jewellery from amazing Lisa E. I can wholeheartedly recommend this academy to all hair and make up professionals.

Shelly Manser-Cavanagh2014

Fantastic 2 days learning blow drying techniques! Picked up so many skills and learnt so much! Highly recommend the course to anyone from beginner to professional.
I felt like I learnt more in the two days about blow drying and the techniques then I did on my university hair and make-up course. As Kevin's course is really direct and helps everyone one on one.
Will definitely be booking on to more of his courses throughout the year!

Jade Davison2016

I have just completed the 5 Day Fashion Blowdrying and Tonging course with Kevin, Martin and guest tutor Stefan Bertin. What an AMAZING 5 days I have had! I have walked away with so many new skills, techniques and inspiration. Kevin and Martin not only focus on doing the hairstyling and learning the techniques but also the creative thinking behind it, it really has helped me to open my mind when creating a look or trying to envision a look in my head before I begin styling. I now feel confident blowdrying and tonging and am super excited to start using my new skills! I cannot recommend doing one of the courses here enough.

Sian Sutherland2017

I am a professional hairdresser of more years than I can mention, I have done lots of different course’s over the years with professional well know hairdressers.

Hand on heart Kevin is the friendliest most down to earth amazing professional I have done a course with.
I did the full 3 weeks it was the best thing I did. Kevin is very kind patient, knowledgeable and inspiring session hair stylist.

Nothing is too much trouble from Kevin and Martin.
The photo shoot we did was amazing they both Kevin and Martin put in a lot of work so we got the best out of the shoot so we had amazing pictures to show for it. I highly recommend the whole 3 weeks its just got to be done ☺

Thank you so much Kevin and Martin I miss you both and look forward to doing a top up in the future Vivienne xx

Vivienne Oscar2014

I had the most incredible time at the Kevin Fortune Academy on the Period Styling Techniques course. As a makeup artist trying to find the time to fit in a long course is impossible, this was both intense and rewarding, everything I needed! Being taught by a legend was inspiring and I highly recommend it. Everyone was so warm and welcoming, thank you Martin and Kevin x

Katie Southwell2015

I had 3 amazing days at Kevin Fortunes Afro hair course. Kevin is an generous man, with high professionalism and inspiring approach.
I Loved the school and the course. Do you need to learn something new or need some inspiration, this is a school I would recommend to you.
