AREA Academy was founded by the core team of multi-award winning salon - AREA Studio. Our mission as an up-skilling facility is to challenge the way stylists think about & approach men’s haircutting. We want to help people in discovering an alternative belief system & different perspective that will ultimately help them in realising their potential. 


At AREA Academy our aim is to introduce students of all skill levels to the latest methods of modern mens haircutting in a simplified yet technically effective way. Each & every course will be planned & tailored to the group attending. Making sure we meet each individuals educational needs whether the student is of a beginner, intermediate or advanced level. We do this by committing to getting to know & understand our students through pre course assessments & post course evaluations. As well as working with smaller groups of students to make sure each individual has been given the full attention of our Educators. 


Facilitating to each different type of learner is of the upmost importance for us, therefore all our workshops & classes include the 3 primary elements of learning. Visual, Auditory & Kinesthetics. Seeing, hearing & doing. Our aim is to share with students our mindset & thought process when approaching a contemporary mens haircut or style with both the highest level of barbering & hairdressing skills combined. Going through the full process from consultation to execution, breaking down the how & why behind what we do. 


All in all, we want to empower our students in their personal development journey by sharing key information that has helped us in ours. This will strengthen their own technical & interpersonal skills so that they can have confidence in sustaining a successful career in our industry.
