About Saks Training

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION FROM THE UK'S NUMBER 1 PROVIDER

Did you know that Saks has a special reputation for beauty and hair training? We're considered to be one of the UK's leading providers of education and professional development. So regardless of whether you're wanting to know everything for how to be a hair stylist, well into your career and looking to progress, or looking for a complete change, you'll be in good company at Saks.

We offer superb training for both newcomers to the industry and experienced stylists, therapists and barbers to improve and refresh, to inspire and influence, and to help build successful salon businesses and careers, whatever your discipline.

Saks Academies provides outstanding full and part-time fast track beginners hairdressing, barber courses and beautician courses to thousands of delegates every year, taking them to beauty or hairdressing NVQ Level 2 and 3, with the renowned Saks The Knowledge Diploma, and beyond.

We also offer classic and advanced courses to inspire and help make you the very best you can be in your chosen career. From Simply Saks The Knowledge - the ultimate classics course to advanced cutting and colouring courses which share the latest techniques and trends for men and women. And from advanced manicures/pedicures (including Gel polish) to waxing, make-up, tanning and more.

Courses are taught by incredibly talented educators who nurture and grow students to strive for exceptional results - because what Saks teaches is special.

The Saks Academies are also home to our internationally renowned Art Team. A collective of innovative and highly talented stylists and educators who regularly travel the UK and world, taking education from their classes at the Saks Academies to a wide range of audiences.

Saks Academies courses are available in flexible formats in our venues across the country; in central London and Darlington, making it simple for you to succeed with us, wherever you are in the UK. We also offer flexible payment plans helping you to train in a way you can afford.

We understand that sometimes it's difficult to get away from the salon so we're more than happy to deliver our courses at your place too. You can choose from any of our classing or advanced hair courses, or mix and match to create the perfect course for you. Alternatively, tell us what you're after and we'll put something together to suit. Designed for groups of six or more, such as college students, international parties or salon teams, these bespoke courses can be delivered at our place or yours.

Plus, we have multi-purpose rooms in Darlington and London that are available for private hire to suit a variety of business requirements and seminar needs; they are also ideal venues for Saks hairdressing training and beauty workshops.

With a huge majority of our graduates going straight into industry employment, Saks graduates are in demand allowing them a choice of career path in the world of hairdressing, barbering or beauty; from flexible freelance work to becoming salons owners or session stylists, working behind the scenes at fashion shows, photo shoots and media productions.

"Having started nervously on my first day I progressed from an absolute beginner into a confident, fully qualified hairdresser in just 26 weeks! I benefited from being taught by an array of talented educators including members of the Saks Art Team, in small classes, which meant one to one tuition was always available. The educators really pushed me into learning different techniques giving me the confidence to pursue my career. The Academies have a really warm and friendly atmosphere and I got on great with everyone. My only regret is that I didn't do the course sooner!" Karen Hamilton, Beginners Student.
