Our training and education course has been featured in this month’s Style Magazine ‘home grown’ issue and we couldn’t be more proud! Training is at the core of Epic Hair Designs and has been thoughtfully shaped by our Education and Operations Manager, Shayne Wright.
Each Epic Hair Designs employee is on an extensive journey themselves with an indivudally mapped out plan featuring strategy, skill, technique and psychological components designed to provide the best journey in salon.
With more Master Colourists than any other salon in Australia, the formula of training at Epic Hair Designs means a career supported by consistent progession and growth. From weekly training in our academy for apprencitces and our already established industry professionals to external seminars and courses designed to equip our teams with the latest trends and techniques.
Opening our very own academy in Brisbane in 2017 which is a full functioning salon has given us the advantage to be able to develop our team into Brisbane’s best hairdressers. From Balayage Bootcamps to extensive cutting training, Keratin Smoothing Treatments and exceptional service, Epic education trains our stylists to consider every aspect of our guests journey. We study the guests journey and understand the research behind the guest experience. Focus is placed on understanding whether guests are after a social visit or more of a trnquil appointment that offers solitiute and peace for the guest to unwind in.
No longer is hairdressing considered an ‘in the meantime job’. It’s a career that offers longevity, integiry and growth. Empowering our team through continued education and opportunities for growth is truly the core of Epic Hair Designs and what we attribute our success.
A team of our hairdressers work with Australia’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week each year to support some of Australias most influential designer runway shows. Throughout 2019, Epic Hair Designs contributed to the creative direction and styling of Carla Zampatti’s Australian Fashion Week show.
Epic Hair Designs stylists also enter Goldwell’s International Colour Zoom competition– the haute couture of styling. Stylists are sponsored by Epic Hair Designs to style a model per the requirements of the competition while producing an editoral worthy shoot of photographs to submit. We are proud that among the thousands of global entries, Epic Hair Designs has placed as a finalist multiple times. Equipping our stylists with the most advanced techniques and understanding of the latest trends means our teams continue to enjoy opportunities like these to develop their professional growth.
