It’s never too early to start thinking about how you’re going to elevate your skills and better yourself as a hairdresser next year, and with only 3 months left of 2017 (when did that happen?) it’s definitely time to start planning it now.

With that in mind, Royal Education Academy is already coordinating their impressive agenda, with an eye to improve the technical skills of apprentices and qualified hairdressers in 2018.

“We are so passionate about our industry and the future of it, and we have noticed that many young hairdressers are completing their apprenticeships and qualifying without necessarily being technically qualified,” said Mary Alamine, Royals Hair Academy Creative Director.

“We’ve also found with the 3-year apprenticeship that the industry is producing ‘qualified’ hairdressers who actually can’t execute certain haircuts or who lack colour technical skills, or who aren’t quite there yet with regards to styling and finishing hair,” she continued. “We are extremely dedicated to having an impact on skills, technique and business for the sustainability of our industry.”

As such, the 2018 agenda for the education brand will be comprised of classes that have an immediate impact on skills, are practical and salon relevant, and are made to maximise the benefit against your investment.

Classes include the Royals Academy’s signature C.P.R (Consultations. Products. Rebooking) workshop, which is dedicated to these pivotal business skills, a Braid Master workshop that increases skill and improves technique, as well as teaching how to incorporate these braids into salon and editorial looks, and more.

“In 2017, our braiding workshops were extremely popular – with a waiting list – so if this is a skills area you would like to improve upon we really encourage that you book early and don’t miss out,” Mary said.

The team is made up of 2016 AHFAs & Hair Expo NSW/ACT Hairdresser of the Year Mary Alamine, Travis Bandiera, Jess Pace and Shannen Smith, all of whom are experts in consultation, cutting, colour, hair extensions, braiding, long hair styling and finishing techniques.

Don’t let 2018 sneak up on you – start those resolutions early and make sure you’ll be focusing on hairdressing improvement next year.
