A SPARK OF SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Established by Jude Rizzo, Member of the International Sens.ùs Art Team. The Halo Hairdressing Academy takes a broad approach to teaching; providing our apprentices with an education beyond the requirements of City and Guilds, teaching additional modules to create stylists prepared for their career
AT A GLANCE
Split over a two year and one day period, students will be led through the City and Guilds curriculum while implement extra educational landmarks to ensure your student understand how to spot trends and shifts in consumer demands while being equiped with the knowledge to react to them alongside their client. Furthermore, we teach students how to leverage the power of social media, how to efficiently communicate with customers as well as inviting in guest speakers for for supplementary modules to teach them new skills.
Duration and TEACHING DAYS
Classes are taught from 9am-5pm each Monday over a two year period

Halo Westcliff, 112 Hamlet Court Road, Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex
At The Halo Academy, we educate your apprentices through their Level 2 NVQ, in a friendly, fair and creative environment. Under the guidance of City and Guilds, we marry the creative mindset of a leading stylists with foresight to spot trends and shifts in consumer demands to allow our students to become determined, creative thinkers. Our Educators place communication first, speaking with you as the salon owner to understand the demands and requirements of your salon and its growth over the forthcoming years - allowing us to feed into the course of your students specialisms which will be of great value based on how you see your staff and client demands shifting as you grow.
At Halo, we teach all our students a 9-level consultation process, an adaptive and seamless approach to entice new clients while making them feel at home once they step into the salon. It is this in-house curated consultation process which has nominated us for the National hair Federation’s Best Client Experience Award 2018.
TEACHING MORE TO CREATE BETTER STYLISTS
Under our NVQ education syllabus, we implement extra educational landmarks to ensure each apprentice is equipped, not only with the skills to become a successful and demanded stylist, but with the qualities to allow a young adult to respond to shifting consumer demands.
We teach students how to leverage the power of social media, how to efficiently communicate with customers as well as inviting in guests for supplementary modules to teach them new skills. One week, for example, we may invite a guest photographer to teach students how to take professional photographs in varying lights to showcase the best colour and texture; so as to curate their professional portfolio and in turn build the client base of your salon.
Private Courses, including Level 3 NVQ
Level 3 NVQ Diploma
Qualified senior stylists will be taken under the Halo wing to complete their Level 3 NVQ. Committed and experienced educators will guide your stylist through their Diploma, ensuring we communicate on a regular basis with yourself to ensure you understand the progress your staff member is making in readiness for their graduation into the industry.
Should a member of your team be preparing to be welcomed back into your salon after time outside of the industry, whether returning from maternity leave or simply rediscovering their passion for the craft and industry, The Halo Academy caters for these situations. Through a Private Course initiative, we will guide your stylist, or team (should a refresher course for all salon staff be wanted) through a specialised course governed by a specialist assessment organisation. Each Module can be designed to cater for salon-specific needs and we will work closely with you to design a course which meets the gap in your salon staff base.
