KH Hair Celebrates 70 Years of Apprenticeship Training

KH Hair has now been delivering apprenticeships for an incredible 70 years, with more than 2,000 young people benefitting across the East Midlands and further afield.

Synonymous with the provision of exceptional and forward-thinking training, KH Hair apprenticeships aim to take raw talent from across the region and help train and develop young people for a successful career in hairdressing. 

KH Hair Group's managing director, Darren Messias, says: "National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from 5-9 March, is the perfect opportunity to show young people how rewarding this career path can be. It's not just hairdressing skills we teach our apprentices. Over three years they learn how to deliver first-class customer service and front of house duties; professional development; effective team work and how to take responsibility and ownership of their careers. They also get the chance to attend shows, exhibitions and enter competitions to enhance their learning.  Plus, we teach maths and English essentials with the help of a qualified school teacher to assist trainees who may need additional help with basic numeracy and literacy skills."

First year apprentice, Jasmine Booth, certainly has no regrets about choosing an apprenticeship to begin her career in hairdressing. She says: ""I love the people I work with. Everyone is helping me learn new skills and it’s like being part of one big family. One of the most exciting things I've learned is how to apply colour.  It’s great to see a client’s reaction when they go from brunette to a really bright fashion colour. " I’m also loving learning long hairdressing skills like creating knots, braids & up-dos. It’s great fun to see your own unique creation." 

 The Academy achieves incredibly high successes year-on-year gaining 75-100 per cent pass rate and has been awarded top marks of 100 per cent by funding partners, Central Training Group - the only Academy to achieve this. Many of KH Hair's graduates have gone on to stay with the Group for their entire professional career. A significant amount of trainees who have come through the Academy have gone on to become specialist colourists and stylists as well as developing their business skills to become salon franchisees. One such apprentice success story comes in the form of Loughborough salon director, Sheralynne Shepherd. who joined the programme in 1999, aged just 16 and became a franchisee when she was just 24. She says: "I wanted to be a apprentice as I wanted to earn money and, being a chatterbox, really wanted to be part of a team.  I also liked the idea of learning on the job and being in the world of work. I would definitely recommend apprenticeships as the perfect way of gaining experience, really learning what the job is all about and having access to all the opportunities that arise from that."

KH Hair is now recruiting for its next intake of apprentices for July 2018.  If you'd like to be part of this award-winning team, or want more information about the apprenticeship programme, please call 0115 972 7407 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
