We believe that a good education is the passport to future success, essential elements of a good education are high quality teaching, positive attitude from learners, excellent attendance and a strong partnership between industry and the Academy. Alongside this, at Leeds Academy For Hairdressing And Barbering (LAFHAB) we offer an inspirational and innovative new learning environment. The vibrant and creative backdrop provides the context for the Academy and its students to achieve outstanding results.

LAFHAB is a WAHL Centre of Excellence, we continue to host WAHL seminars and events with Simon Shaw, Michael Damiano and member of the WAHL Artistic Team throughout 2018.

We are committed to training the hairdressing & barbering stars of the future. At LAFHAB we will endeavour to train you to a job-ready standard, using the latest skills & techniques in hairdressing & barbering in both theoretical and practical environments without taking away your creative flair. Training is tailored to meet the needs of individual Learners, and with our Flexible Attendance program Learners can fit training in with other commitments. All practical training takes place in The Barbers LeedsĀ  and The Salon Leeds.

With insurance companies now starting to demand qualifications for Salon/Barbershop employees (regardless of experience), it is now more important than ever that those wishing to sustain a career in hairdressing or barbering achieve recognised qualifications as part of their Continued Professional Development (CPD), and with our RPL policy this may be quicker than you think.

To allow people to get a taste of the training in our Academy we offer Taster Days, sample a day’s training without commitment.

We also offer One to One courses for personal tuition.

To meet the needs of our Clients, we provide accredited hairdressing & barbering training 5 days a week, with one late evening.
