About Us

A little more about us, how we got here, our team & where we're going.

After 32 years in the hairdressing industry, we thought it about time to begin sharing some of the knowledge we’ve accumulated over the decades. SO! This 2023 we made the decision to found the MAJOR Academy. A place where people of all abilities can come and educate themselves on the industry of hair.

Whether you’ve never picked up a pair of hairdressing scissors or you’re already a seasoned professional looking to brush up on some of your techniques, we have courses to suit all abilities to achieve every success. Welcome to the MAJOR Hairdressing Academy.

Meet The Team

We're an award winning hair salon group in the East Midlands and now we've opened our first hairdressing academy to enable accessible hairdressing education, spreading our industry knowledge to those who are looking to further their careers in the world of hairdressing, start their side hustle, or even just learn a new skill for themselves.

Throughout my training programme I gained a lot of experience and knowledge on all things from cutting to colouring. I was guided by the education team through technical cuts such as graduated bobs and gents cuts. I also have loved learning how to create creative colours and balayage. I would definitely recommend MAJOR.

Through the course of my training I've had support from the team, for whatever I needed. My training has always been thorough and I've felt confident in everything I've been taught. I would definitely recommend this to anybody who wants an exceptional level of education & support throughout.


During my hairdressing training I've received so much help & support that has given me so much knowledge on the industry and helped me to gain thorough experience and confidence in everything I do! I would definitely recommend this. The team are great!
