Our Training Program

Passion for learning and innovation is who we are

Our success comes down to the personalised and exclusive training journey every Epic stylist enjoys. 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 Australia’s most advanced hairdressers. Joining our team of hairdressers means beginning your Master Colourist training journey alongside Goldwell while also developing skills internally which is facilitated by our Operations Manager Shayne Wright.


Be led by our talented Education and Operations Manger, Shayne Wright

Training is who we are and what makes our teams epic. We invest in every stylist to ensure all our hairdressers complete the globally recognised Goldwell Master Colourist course. Alongside this our teams are trained internally in our Ascot academy by our Operations Manager and Educator, Shayne Wright. Shaynes’ 25 years of education experience with global colour brand Goldwell means our stylists enjoy courses in Balayage, Colour Correction and advanced cutting. Our teams also enjoy experiencing external educational courses focusing on providing exceptional service and leadership development.

Turn your passion for colour into mastery

Master Colourist


Epic Hair Designs offers this course to every stylist.  Our team attends the Goldwell Academy to complete the highest level of Master Colourist. These exciting and interactive seminars take you on a journey through the art and services of hair color.

Also in our own academy our hairdresser completes 4 other courses on colour correction, balayage, foiling and exception service training.

It’s not just about color, it’s about building on your creativity and developing your skills in every area – communication, service, technique, and artistry.

Turn your passion for cuts & styling into mastery

Epic Hair Designs offers exclusive and intensive hair cutting courses to our hairdressers and apprentices to ensure consistent growth and education. These courses take place internally in our academy as well as externally. Epic Hair Designs also works with various industry leaders in Australia’s hair industry to offer our teams the best in exceptional service and leadership courses.

Kerastase ambassador training


Once our newest hairdressers are finished their colour training journey and have become a master colourist by choice they might start the Kerastase ambassador training.

This course is completed over 2 years.


Styling and up styling

In salon and in our academy

The art to up styling is something all hairdressers should be great at. A great cut and colour can be optimized with a beautiful up-style.

Our team attends day courses to keep these skills at an outstanding level.

We have partnered with Sharon Blain Education and PREMA salon from Sydney and New York to tailor a training program to the needs of our team.

Future leaders training


Once completing their master colorist journey a hairdresser may be offered to go on our future leader’s program.   We normally have around 5 hairdressers on this program and already we have managers in our salons who achieved the goal by being on our future leader’s program.

This program goes for up to 2 years and covers off subjects like communications skills, holding meetings, personality skills including doing a Myer Briggs test, performance management skills and the list goes on.

We are lucky enough to have the best partnering with us to do these courses including Kym Krey who is very renowned in the industry for her leadership courses.
