The Academy of Hair Design was born out of a necessity to provide beginning hair designers with the skills necessary to begin their career and to be successful as a professional hair designer.
As the owners of a respected salon chain, Duncan Bros. Salon, we realized the need for better, more comprehensive training at the beginning levels. We developed an in-salon educational program that required every new staff member to attend and pass as a qualification to perform services on salon clients.
Our program has been extremely successful. However, the salon staffing requirements have grown to a point that it is no longer practical or productive to continue basic training in the salon.
Now, with years of experience in successfully developing hair designers with profitable careers, we invite you to share in our experience. Come learn with us.
Neither the Academy Of Hair Design nor the Duncan Bros Salons are affiliated with the Duncan Brothers School of Hair Design.
The Academy isn’t about us, it's about what we can do for you!
