"a damn good mop chop?"

I am sure you all know Vidal Sassoon, with this either being product knowledge or appliance knowledge.

Vidal Sassoon has become a leading brand name in products, hairdressing equipment and prestigious has many salons across the world today.


Vidal Sassoon is a very well established company, Founded by a man called Vidal Sassoon. As a young boy he had no interest in becoming a hairdresser, until the age of 14 when his mother got him a job as an apprentice in a barber shop.

In 1948 Vidal set up his first salon, in a tiny room on a third floor above Bond Street. And for nine years he perfected his cutting techniques, searching for new simple and elegant hairstyles. By 1963 he had pioneered the bob and the five point hair cuts, these are what made Vidal famous and gave him the title of "The founder of modern hairdressing".

This was how is all started, he then went on to give his name to a chain of hair salons in the UK and the United States, and produce his own range of hair care products which are still in high demand across the world today.

Since revolutionizing the hair and fashion industry in the 1960s with the unique cutting technique (THE BOB), Vidal Sassoon has always lead the the worlds cutting techniques and the must have trends. The simple and precise cutting techniques attract hairdressers from all over the world.


This is one of the largest hairdressing schools in London, Vidal Sassoon offers a wide range of courses from the basic skills of hairdressing, to the more advanced Cutting, Colouring, Perming and Styling techniques need to compete with the ever changing hair must haves.

These training schools are recommended for those who wish to acquire precise cutting techniques and further their knowledge within the increasingly popular hairdressing industry.

Hairdressing is a rewarding and progressive career and the training schools are designed to help achieve goals within this industry. Dedicated teachers with the schools have designed a wide range of courses to meet a variety of experience levels and learning needs to guide you in your technical and creative career choice.

Vidal Sassoon's main training schools are based in London although, the structured courses are delivered all around the world in hairdressing academies and education centers.


One on the courses offered is the hairdresser's beginner course, this lasts either 30 or 45 weeks depending on what skills you want to pursue within the hairdressing industry.

This course will give you all of the hairdressing background knowledge and hairdressing skills needed to obtain the qualification that is needed for you to trade as a hairdresser.

This will be gained by completing modules, these are then broken down over six stages. Each stage will last five weeks.

Your course is broken down into work sessions (Practicing on client's), assessments both written and oral, intensive skill training and research lessons. This course is designed to turn an absolute novice to an all round, well trained hairdresser. All working tools are provided by the Sassoon training school.

The Vidal Sassoon beginner's Diploma Course is recognised world wide, so you will be classed as fully trained.


This course I aimed at newly qualified hairdressers, are even those who want to progress with their hairdressing skills.

The course is 4 weeks of intense training to give you, insight in the modern cutting techniques, classic colour application, freehand and modern colour placement. This course is a must for any hairdresser who feels they could learn more skills and enhance their business.

It always looks good when you tell customers that you are Vidal Sassoon trained, you can charge a little bit more for you work.


If you are already trained in the industry, there is a variety of short and long-term courses to meet your needs, providing tuition in both cutting and colouring seeming to be the most popular.

Sassoon training academies also offer many other courses, so if you are only interested in perusing one aspect of the hairdressing industry, they can cater for that as well.

If you don't fancy the hairdressing industry, then what about a good fashionable haircut, colour, highlight of wash and style at rock bottom prices.

Remember that these hairdressers had to train some where, is it you want rock bottom prices then visit the Vidal Sassoon advanced academy, to get great discounted hair doo's. Yes these stylists are training, but some of them may have been in the industry for years.
