 Nicky Oliver

A unique feature of the Nicky Oliver Hair Academy is that unlike many other training academies, all courses are continually supervised by Nicky Oliver himself to make sure all standards are met. We use female and male live models throughout our courses which maximises students working capacity.

All the hairdressing classes are kept intentionally small to ensure guaranteed direction and support throughout your training and also allows for each student’s personal requirements to be recognised very quickly, meaning you are  taught accordingly. Training courses can also be tailor-made to suit your personal needs or to the requirements of your salon.

“We know exactly what is required to transform you into a working professionally-trained stylist,” says Nicky Oliver, who ensures his students are involved in highly practical work on live models from Day One. “We also have extremely small classes so each student gets the individual attention that can maximise learning.


“Students at the Nicky Oliver Academy have many dreams and may want to work in a salon or perhaps open their own salon. Some may dream of a styling career in TV or films. Others may go into self-employed mobile hairdressing while some will fulfil their dream of a styling career on cruise ships,” added Nicky. “Whatever their ambitions, our aim is to enable them to fulfil their dream of becoming a professional hairdresser and be the very best at whatever they decide to do. We want them to enjoy our hairdressing courses and have fun on their learning journey.”Enquire now >>

''Studying at Nicky Oliver Hair Academy has completely changed my life and the direction it is taking. I feel rejuvenated and excited about my next steps, confident that Nicky Oliver Academy has prepared me better than anywhere else could have done.

The training has been beyond all my expectations. It is intense but very rewarding. From the very first day I was cutting hair! which at first seemed daunting but the support and coaching is so brilliant that you never feel out of your depth.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment, so much so that I have just signed to do my Level3. I want to be a brilliant hairdresser and I know that studying here is how I am going to do it.''
