Cutting-Edge Hairdressing Education

Founded in 2004, A Cut Above Academy went from a humble space at the rooftop of Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall to a 3-storey building in Dataran Mentari, Bandar Sunway today. Its remarkable growth and success came from none other than Datin Winnie Loo, founder and Chief Creative Director of A Cut Above Group of Salons and Academy. Thanks to her vision and commitment, we have taken the lead to become the Industry leader in Hairdressing Education.

Your Career Begins Here

Over the years, A Cut Above Academy has been consistently developing its hairdressing courses to meet the high standards that is expected from the industry. From our effort, we have been awarded THE BEST HAIRDRESSING ACADEMY in MALAYSIA by City & Guilds, London (2007,2008 & 2009) as well as awarded a 5 STAR RATING by The national Department of Skills Development (J.P.K.) for the year 2014-15 and 2016 -2017. The above recognition undoubtedly makes us the best choice for students who are serious in making hairdressing as their professional career.

Hairdressing Courses

  • Diploma in Professional Hairdressing + Internship
  • Diploma in Professional Hairdressing
  • Certificate in Hairdressing
  • The Specialist Program


Created to inspire advanced hairdressers to progress their work with the latest cutting, colouring and finishing techniques.

As quality education is our priority, A Cut Above Academy practices group student intakes. Courses are available on specific months of the year and students start their courses in groups. This way, students will have each other as benchmarks for improvement, and our Educators can gauge their abilities.

Students start off their education with theory, before practicing on mannequin heads and progressing to live models at the main floor. This is A Cut Above Academy’s forte: each student is individually assessed by the Educators, ensuring that they are capable before moving on to the next level. Students need to do a proper consultation and diagnosis with the client and then report to the Educator in charge before they begin their practice.
