Hairdressing Advanced Courses- Information

One- on- one Training

All courses are tailored made to suit your needs as an individual.  Manikins are generally used as a training aid as it gives the participant the opportunity to feel relaxed and confident whilst learning new techniques. With individual courses 1 day sessions are most popular for students as they can go back to the salon and apply new skill acquired then come back on a regular basis. This method keeps the motivation level high and learning packages can be sent home with the student to follow up training and correspondence with First Element via email and phone. We are Located at Our Hair Shop in Ulladulla with private First Element education rooms for the individual student.

Group or In-salon Training

We travel a 300km radius from Ulladulla to your salon. All levels are catered for from juniors who have very limited experience to highly skilled seniors and can be all completely motivated and learning new and valuable techniques as one group. Manikins and/or live models can be used for training sessions. With group sessions regular training on a monthly basis can really benefit staff morale and lift skill level as a team. Duration of a training session can be anywhere from 4 hours to a few days depending on the salons requirements and time availability.

All courses are individually structured and can be combined to suit your salon and training needs.

Education for hairdressers generally occurs by watching seminars or attending a course based in a capital city within a large group of other hairdressers.

First Element offers private training courses that are completely hands on.

First Element courses are always changing to adhere to the fashion whirlwind, but we also assist in adapting fashion styles to suit each salons unique clientele. What might be the latest cut in Oxford St Sydney could quite possibly scare off clients in a coastal town or rural area.

This does not mean that city hairdressers are any better or any further skilled, just simply people in different areas with different lifestyles like different hairstyles!

Within a First Element full day course, the volume of content would be equivalent to a 3 day course that is run by a large company with a large number of people in each class. But without the fuss and without the cost$$$.

Take advantage of this luxury of having your very own team trainer.  My experience and gift in reading people and providing motivation can really impact on these young stylists.

I have educated overseas and around Australia.  I thoroughly enjoy working with my special clients hair needs in-between courses and i currently own and operate Our Hair Extension Shop in Ulladulla, N.S.W.
