Do you enjoy having fun with hair, or giving advice to people when it comes to their hair? Starting a career in hairdressing will give you the opportunity to be creative since styles are always changing. Even though the main focus is hair, you also get to meet new people and make them feel good by changing the way they look.

Africa Skills and Michelangelo Hair Academy creates a professional environment where learners can feel safe to learn in a stress-free setting. The purpose is to provide excellent training for aspiring hairdressing professionals. Our training involves theory at Michelangelo Hair Academy, and practicals where you can work in a salon of your own choice.

The model of training we established is different from the normal setting:

  • The learner will attend training at Michelangelo Hair Academy, in Mossel Bay, one day per week for theoretical and practical training;
  • The learner will work four to five days per week in an approved Hairdressing Salon where they will keep a record of their hours worked;
  • The learner must accumulate 3,900 hours of practical work under a qualified Hairdresser;
  • Monthly visits by a Workplace Manager will be done, to ensure compliance with the contract;
  • The learner can apply for a formal Trade Test after receipt of their NQF level 4 Certificate and at least 3,900 hours in the workplace.
  • The 3-year NQF 4 Hairdressing course costs R95,000 (kit included).
