What Hunters Hair Academy Ltd can do for you? We aim to work in partnership with the salon owners to create salon ready stylists who are able to produce an income for the salon at the end of NVQ Level 2.

Apprentices are trained here, in our commercial high street salon in Dover, ensuring that they have access to a range of models to learn on and develop their skills.

To become an apprentice you must first be employed in a hairdressing salon; we can assist you to find an employer.

What will an apprentice learn?

  • NVQ Level 2 is the foundation hairdressing scheme. On this scheme Apprentices will learn all of the fundamental skills required to become a salon stylist; this includes shampooing and conditioning, blow-drying, cutting, colouring, perming and customer service. Apprentices will also develop their personal learning and thinking skills and if necessary complete Functional Skills in Maths and English, improving employability skills.
  • NVQ Level 3 is the advanced hairdressing scheme. This scheme offers a range of units depending upon which skills the Advanced Apprentice wishes to develop. Learn advanced cutting techniques; redesign hairstyles, wedding and avant-garde creative hair-up and creative colouring techniques. To showcase the skills learnt during this course the Advanced Apprentice will take part in a photographic shoot, hair show or competition.
