On Edge Owner, instructor and Master Stylist Patricia Pearson, took 10 years to develop a unique curriculum that can take a student from knowing nothing about hair to being a confident junior stylist. In 1500 hours of training provided in the program, you will learn about the chemistry and structure of the hair, colour, cutting, perms, braids, updos, hair extensions and chemical hair relaxing.
Master Stylist Patricia is a strong believer that the way to teach hair design
and styling is not by just putting in 1500 hours and giving you a diploma, so that you can start as an apprentice in a salon or to allow you to simply move faster toward taking your test for the hairdressing trade qualification licence. Patricia believes the best way is to focus the training specifically on teaching you about hair, hair design and styling techniques
. This provides you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to be able to go directly after graduation into the professional salon world as a stylist capable of building your clientele fast, and gaining the potential to earn an excellent income.

The secret of the success
of this program is mostly the experience of Master Stylist Patricia. The textbooks can only teach you so much, and even if you have the natural talent and flair for beauty, fashion and art, you must still learn practical techniques to be a success. It is through the combination of Patricia's experience and skill, along with the books, that success comes.
