Andrew Bayliss Hairdressing Training Academy


The aim of our training academy is to create an immersive, client-focused learning setting in the salon for our students, offering a more affordable service to clients.

In our academy, 1st and 2nd-year trainee stylists undergo comprehensive education to fulfill the requirements of their NVQ hairdressing qualification.

The academy also serves as a hub for ongoing learning and personal development for experienced Andrew Bayliss Brand stylists, extending its courses to other salon professionals.

Anyone over the age of 16 can use the academy as a client for salon services.

All Cutting and colour services are available. But as this is a training situation services may be limited or restricted due to specific individual training requirements and current experience level.

Time is dependent on the service and the experience level of the trainee in question, but guidelines are as follows :

Cut and finish appointments

  • 1st-year student: 2-3 hours
  • 2nd-year student: 1-2 hours

Colour /Technical appointments

  • 1st-year student: Half-day – Morning or Afternoon (4 hours)
  • 2nd-year student : 3 hours

It is important to remember this is a training situation so trainee students require a situation in which there are no time constraints or time pressure. This allows them the time to fully concentrate, learn and develop the skills they require correctly. Also, time is needed to allow the Salon educator to correctly demonstrate, guide and assist when needed.

*Please do not commit to an appointment if you have time limitations. Be prepared for the appointment to take time.

Due to your investment of time needed on your part and the obvious trusting nature of the situation, all services are subsequently heavy discounted, in most cases more than 50% off normal salon prices.

Absolutely not!

  • Services will only be performed by students with the necessary capability for each specific task.
  • Continuous and diligent supervision of all students and trainees will be maintained at all times, akin to a driving instructor with a dual-control car.
  • Our experienced technical educator will consistently oversee and guide the process.
  • Thorough and meticulous checks will be conducted throughout the service.
  • The educator will be actively involved, aiming to guide the trainee without direct interference. However, the final result must meet our high salon standards before the client leaves.
  • The educator’s primary goal is to guide the trainee towards achieving the desired standard independently. In cases where the standard is not met, the educator will intervene and complete the service.

To schedule a complimentary consultation, please contact the salon at 01600 2280235.

Since Academy appointments serve as training opportunities, all bookings necessitate a preliminary consultation with the salon educator and the trainee involved. This consultation can be conducted either in-person at the salon or virtually via video call.

This ensures the accurate selection of services based on your needs and the training requirements and experience level of the trainee. Kindly note that Academy appointments are not currently available for online booking.
