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.
