It’s nothing new for a hairdressing brand to open an academy but what is refreshing at the Atherton Cox academy is that there are only four courses to choose from, run by some of the best names in the business. This mighty salon brand is so passionate about its craft that it focuses its education on four main areas and teaches the courses with total precision.
Based in central London, the Atherton Cox Academy has created a selection of one or two day courses that teach hair stylists at all levels in a combined demonstration and practical workshop format the skill they need to excel in Men’s, Bridal Hair and Session Hairdressing.
Kerry Hayden is the brand’s most senior men’s hair stylist. She’s been specialising in men’s hair for over 30 years and has a reputation for expertly tailored barbering. Kerry is in Guido Palau’s hair team working at the men’s catwalk shows in Milan, Paris, London and New York for designers including Prada, Versace, Louis Vuitton and Dior.
Andrew Curtis is a highly experienced educator specialising in men’s hairdressing. He has a training style that is both unique and inspiring, leaving his students motivated and confident in all aspects of men’s styling.
