Guess who’s back? You guessed it, Paul Falltrick is back on UK soil and we are super excited about what he’s got planned. As one of the industry’s most-loved and established names; Paul Falltrick is collaborating with Ministry of Hair Academy to bring a world-class education offering to the industry.
It is no secret that the intake into the industry is at an all-time low, however we need our industry professionals to inspire the next generations to take on a creative career in hairdressing with – let’s show them the excitement of being a hairdresser. “There is nothing better than seeing someone else fall in love with this industry, helping them to reach their potential, inspiring creativity and being there when they get that all-important eureka moment when it all clicks.” Paul says, “We have to take responsibility, not as a tick box but as an intentional daily process, to protect the future of our craft and make sure the next generation are excited for a career in hairdressing!”
Located in Paul’s hometown of Essex, Ministry of Hair Academy began in 2018 with three co-founders wanting to make a difference in the hairdressing training culture. The aim? To create an exciting but realistic hair environment for apprentices and private students to train within, something Paul feels passionate about too. “Classrooms have taught some the most influential people in the industry” Paul explains, “but, like everything in life, just because it’s the way we have always done it, doesn’t mean it is the best way. Creating realistic but creative environments for students to learn is a fantastic way to deliver education and prepares students for real eventualities as well as exposing them to bigger opportunities. Something both aspiring hairdressers and their employers can benefit from.”
Daniel Lethbridge, co-founder of Ministry of Hair Academy adds “Both myself and the co-founders of Ministry Hair Academy are very excited about working with Paul Falltrick, we believe by combining our experience and passion for education we will bring a whole new dynamic and level of experience for everyone who trains at our academy. Our plan is to evolve education in the hairdressing industry and to improve salon life. A new day is dawning for apprenticeship education, the sky is the limit!”
What does this mean?
Education days will be available at both Ministry of Hair Academy in Basildon and gfc Hairdressing in Hornchurch. Both offering NVQ level 1 and 2 education – perfect for entry level students and those wanting to retrain or refresh their current skills. Paul Falltrick concludes “Educating is my biggest passion. On a personal level, it ensures I am always learning, keeping up to date with latest techniques and trends so I can offer the best education possible. But, for me, it really is about giving back and inspiring the next generations to love this craft as much as I do.”
