HAIRDOTCOM: Upskill at Home

HAIRDOTCOM: Upskill at Home

As salons across the UK and Ireland await updates on reopening dates, the HAIRDOTCOM Art Team have launched three new courses to allow hairdressers to continue to learn at home during what we’re all hoping is the last of the lockdowns.

Encouraging people to use the downtime to upskill, the HAIRDOTCOM At Home schedule now features three exciting new online seminars covering sustainability, session work and bridal styling. And that’s not all, due to the huge success of the first sell-out session, a new date has been added for Socially Awkward, which is taught by social superstars Vivenne Johns, Casey Coleman and Harriet Stokes.

“We know that creatives have been using lockdown to develop their skills, and as we start to prepare for gradual reopening, this is the perfect time to get some last-minute education in before things get really busy in the salon,” explains HAIRDOTCOM co-founder, Craig Chapman. “With our latest three seminars, and a second date added for Socially Awkward, we’re inviting hairdressers to learn something new or develop an existing skillset, so they can head back to work feeling confident, empowered and ready to meet their goals.”

NEW for 2021 are:

Bridal 101 Hair & Business Masterclass

Weddings are well and truly back on the agenda – are you ready to maximise your bridal business? In this session, led by Elizabeth Rita, you’ll not only learn trending and traditional bridal looks, but you’ll also discover how to create a bridal service menu for your business. From pricing and promoting to dealing with big day stress, this is the essential first step in developing your wedding work. 

12 Steps to Sustainability

When: Tuesday 2nd March, 10am – 1pm

Led by HAIRDOTCOM founders Ashleigh Hodges and Craig Chapman, this is an introduction to salon sustainability. Working with the idea that we can’t change the world – but we can change how we are within it, Ashleigh and Craig will share simple steps and small changes you can make both in the salon and at home to create a big difference. With 66% of consumers agreeing that they would pay more for a sustainable brand*, it’s time to make the change – and HAIRDOTCOM will show you how. 

The Perfect Session Assistant

When: Monday 15th March, 10am – 1pm

Investment: £25.00

Want to be the perfect assistant not only in the salon, but on TV shows, photoshoots and fashion events? This is the course for you. Led by Hairdotcom members Miranda Elmer and Rebecca Wilcox, this seminar will equip you with both the confidence and skills you need to become the perfect assistant. Learn how to create the key foundation styles required when assisting: the perfect ponytail, braiding, waves and textured styles. Assisting is the best way to break into the session industry, and by learning the best practices to get booked and rebooked, you’ll be well on your way to the career of your dreams.

This course is perfect for Level 2 & 3 Apprentices, graduate and young stylists to extend their skill set as well as experienced hairdressers who would like to learn what is required to move into the session arena. 


NEW date added:

Socially Awkward

You want it, we go it! The first Socially Awkward course sold out in record time, so we’ve added a new date.

This fun and dynamic session, delivered by three of British hairdressing’s best-loved social media stars: Vivenne Johns, Casey Coleman and Harriet Stokes, will cover how to use social media to grow your business, but will also share advice for developing a healthy relationship with digital activity, and how to handle feelings of overwhelm. This is a no-holds barred course, packed full of the tips, tricks and techniques the team rely on for growth.
