How advanced are your courses?

Advanced courses are available for licensed and working hair professionals of all experience levels. Small course sizes allow our instructors to address each student’s educational needs.  If you are not a licensed stylist, inquire about our cosmetology program.

How big are your courses?

Small - with a student-to-teacher ratio of 8-to-1, Sassoon Academy creates intimate, communicative environments ideal for instruction.

I have never taken Sassoon Courses before. Are there any prerequisites?

Other than being a licensed cosmetologist, there are no prerequisites for most of our advanced courses. The only courses that require a Sassoon foundation are Master Class, Collection and Salon Educator. To enroll in those three classes, students must complete an abc Cutting course.
If you have never attended Sassoon Academy, we recommend starting your education with an abc Cutting course as it covers the fundamental Sassoon techniques and practices.

English is not my first language. Can I still take courses?

Yes. All courses are open to international applicants.  However, the attendee is responsible for hiring an interpreter to translate during the course. Our administration team will happily provide you with a list of recommended interpreters.

Can I take a course more than once?

Absolutely. Each course offers a fresh perspective, inspires new ideas and reflects the constantly evolving nature of our industry.
