Partners Hair Design Training Academy Graduation 2015

Partners Hair Design Training Academy Graduation 2015

Wednesday 25th November 2015 was once again a proud and auspicious occasion for Partners Hair Design Training Academy as we hosted our second annual graduation show!

Proud parents, friends, family, industry professionals and Partners Hair Design staff flocked to our beautiful establishment where they were entertained with an exciting hair extravaganza showcasing the talents of our students and stylists.

This year our students certainly pushed the boundaries in plenty of ways and after months of preparation and a little push from their instructors, they finally got their looks completed.

To get the creative juices flowing, our first year students presented the theme “Fire & Ice” followed by our third year graduate class with “An Expression of Avant-Garde”.

As they took their creations to the extreme; each student displayed a true form of self-expression.

From hair pieces, fluorescent colours, and awe-inspiring shapes, they proved that there are no limits to creativity!

Audience members were in awe of the artistic genius and creativity displayed by our talented students and called it our best show ever!

Partners Hair Design Training Academy has become widely recognized as a leading training institution and more and more companies, schools and colleges are requesting our students to participate in various shows and community events such as fashion shows, beauty pageants and shave-a-thons to name but a few.

A big thank you goes to our fabulous sponsors L’Oreal, GHD and Annie’s Angels for their generous support every year.


As we send off our second group of graduates, we wish them well and trust their passion and motivation will be further stimulated as they continue to grow in the exciting hairdressing industry.
