This course is for new stylists who want to build up speed and confidence by working on the Alan d models with as much or as little supervision as they require.

We’ve found that recent training has been erratic due to the Pandemic and the recovery period and many new stylists suffered from a lack of models when they trained. By working in a no-pressure environment with the safety-net of a trainer if needed, you will gain the confidence you need to hit the salon floor running.

Alan d have spent years delivering commercial Ladies Hairdressing & Barbering Education and their reputation extends to their huge and diverse model bank, the same clients that are walking into your salon right now.

This course runs from Monday-Friday and you can book as many days as you need with as little as 1 week’s notice.

You can choose to work on Ladies Cutting, Colouring and Barbering.

This course is ideal for newly trained stylists, Freelance Hairdressers and those looking to improve their confidence.
