About Us – Leeds Academy For Hairdressing & Barbering

At LAFHAB we have been offering VTCT-accredited hairdressing and barbering courses for the last 5 years.

LAFHAB was set up in 2011 to provide high quality training, offering Learners a more in-depth, personal and flexible level of training that was not available anywhere else.

It is our mission to be the number 1 provider of hairdressing & barbering courses in Leeds and West Yorkshire, we endeavour to train barbers and hairdressers to a high standard, using the latest skills and techniques in hairdressing and barbering through our courses, in both theoretical and practical environments without taking away their creative flair.

WAHL Centre of Excellence plaque

We firmly believe that it is important to offer Equal Opportunities For All, regardless of social background, age, ethnicity, disability or Secondary Education qualifications. All we ask of learners is that they are committed and willing to learn. In turn we will provide the resources, training and support required.

In recognition of the quality of training, we have been awarded the status of ‘WAHL Centre of Excellence’ and we continue to host WAHL seminars throughout the year with Simon Shaw and members of the WAHL Artistic Team.
