Train as a Hairdresser at Exceed, a world of opportunities is awaiting you!
Hairdressing is our passion.
Training is our business.
The staff at Exceed Hair Academy have been training Hairdressers for over 10 years.
The real life examples below should give you some idea what we can help you achieve
I’m Nicola and I’m a stylist with Exceed Hairdressing Salon and am qualified as an assessor for Exceed Hair Academy. I have a busy schedule with many loyal clients and I know I have chosen the right career.
In fact, I’ve been with Exceed since 2003. When I first started I was a trainee and Helen worked with me throughout my NVQ's to make sure I achieved everything I was capable of.
The confidence Helen inspired has encouraged me all the way and now I’m studying for my Certificate in Education at Calderdale College so I can teach others to follow a career in Hairdressing. I also attend lots of courses – inspirational, practical and customer care – to continuously improve my skills.
Working with the trainees is great as I work full time in a salon so I am aware of what’s going on in the industry. This means I can make sure this up-to-date, relevant information is passed on to the students, and we work in small groups so I have more time for each individual.
It’s a lovely salon to work in with a really good staff environment. I always wanted to be a hairdresser but never dreamed I would be teaching the skills to others.
I’m Kate and I own Sophistikates salon. I met Helen Roe whilst she was teaching at a local college and I was a student there.
When I opened my own salon, Helen provided me with my first apprentice From Exceed Hair Academy. This was about three years ago. I’m happy to say that my business is expanding so I needed another trainee. Of course, I went to Helen because she did so well with my first apprentice.
I now have my second trainee from Exceed Academy and she’s doing really well. I’m very pleased with Helen’s way of teaching the students as she instils in them more than just how to style hair.
As a salon owner I want my trainees to be valuable, contributing members of the team from day one – and this I get from my Exceed trainees.
