It's been said the best ideas are simple and obvious

The concept of teaching urban skills to the urban disadvantaged is not new, but passing on hairdressing skills of a high standard has been a very high cost option which has excluded many from this life changing opportunity.

SHAIR has a proven concept that delivers world class hair and beauty training as NO COST to the student.

It does this by:-

  • Identifying the right location for a Hair Academy.
  • Investing in the very best salon training equipment.
  • Providing Students with the highest quality training and pastoral care whilst a student and after graduation.
  • Graduates are qualified to European standards and gain an Internationally recognised qualification initially equivalent to NVQ level 2 but after further study many achieve the eqivalent of NVQ level 3.
  • Throughout the training the Tutors look for outstanding students so that after 5 years they can be trained and become Tutors. A crucial aspect of the concept as this enables each Academy to become stand alone, and enable the senior team to move onto the next Academy.
