To meet the demands of today's expectations in the Industry, A Cut Above Academy has designed a module that will ensure that the students' foundation is strong before graduating. We have designed our signature course, the Diploma in Professional Hairdressing, in a 6-step structure.
Basic (2 Months)
This is where the foundation is built. An intensive course on the principles of hairdressing is focused on the first month. From thereon, a practical understanding of shampooing, blow-drying, perm rod winding as well as color application is taught.
Intermediate 1 (2 Months)
On the third month, the students are taught on consultation and diagnosis as well as to improve their basic skills on what they learnt in the second month. From hereon, students are exposed to practice on live models doing basic hair wash, cutting, perming as well coloring.
The Educator in charge will be guiding the students in their consultation and diagnosis with their clients and will be very attentive to the needs and understanding of the students.
Intermediate 2 (2 Months)
As the students progress into their 5th month, the students are now more matured and will be left to do their own consultation. The students will then report to the Educator on their diagnosis and suggest the proper method to accomplish the desired expectations of the client.
Besides doing live models, students are also taught various methods of achieving different results in hair cutting, coloring and even perming.
Creative (2 Months)
In their seventh and eighth month, the students are given free reign to decide on methodologies to achieve desired results. The Educator would pin point to the students on points for improvement during as well as after the service has been done.
Creative works such as coloring and perm techniques are taught in this class.
Internship (3 Months)
Once their eighth month is completed, the students will undergo a 3-month internship program to experience the different kind of salon ambiance as well as different levels of expectations of clients. the students will be doing their internships at A Cut Above’s Group of salons.
Finishing (1 Month)
Once they have finished their final internship, the students will then come back to A Cut Above Academy, where they will discuss with their Educators on their weaknesses and the Educator will work with them to hone their skills before they finally graduate.
As in any related industry, experience is of utmost importance. A Cut Above Academy heavily invests on garnering live models for the students to practice. Having said that, the experience that the students get while working in a salon is undoubtedly the most important start for their careers.
That is why A Cut Above Group of salons guarantees our graduates a job upon graduation. From thereon, graduates can work at other salons to gain different types of experience or even venture into starting up their own salon business. With at least 3 years of experience, the graduate will have a range of job opportunities such as Salon Stylists, Salon Managers, Session Stylists, Product Technical Trainers, Education and Product Sales Representatives.
With today's ever-growing business in the Fashion industry, the demand for an experienced stylist is overwhelming. Join the academy to get started at a profession that has been proven to be recession-proof.
