Tools and Equipment

We provide all the hair styling products and tools you will need to complete your professional hair stylist training while in class, meaning you will save money from not buying an expensive hair styling kit up front and in addition to your tuition fee. 

At the Academy of Hair & Makeup, we make things easy and affordable for you. We don’t restrict our students by learning with one brand only. While you are learning about hair styling tools and products and how to select the right brands for you, we invite you to use our hair styling tools and products class. That way, by the time you complete your professional hair styling course, you will be able to walk confidently into any store and know exactly what products and tools to buy for you and your clients.

We ask you to bring a mannequin head, a hair dryer and a curling wand, which we sell at student prices, or you can bring what you have at home. We will send you the details when you enrol. 

Beauty Business

According to a data report on Google statistics, 80% of beauty businesses will fail in their first 18 months of opening; the main three reasons are failure to understand their clients (their market), ineffective daily operations and inadequate business planning. We can also confirm this statistic with the constant feedback confident in their Artistry skills but have no idea where to start and how to set up their business for success.
