“One of my stylists and myself attended an Advanced Hair Cutting course in September 2014. I loved it so much that I put my name down for the next course straight away. I would highly recommend the course to experienced hairdressers and to those just starting their career in hairdressing, you will walk away enthused, spurred on and excited about your job” – 15 September 2014

“I would definitely recommend HEDZ Academy for anybody wanting to better themselves, improve certain skills. I wanted to learn how to texturize and funk up short hair and I have achieved that.

I felt that the course helped me to improve cutting long hair. I actually did a 5 year old boys hair  the other day which was very long and I was more equipped and confident and did a really good cut. Thank you Damian” – 23 March 2014

Jennie O’Dowd – Salon Owner/Barber, Le Barber, Elphin Street, Strokestown, Co. Roscommon


Thank you so much, I really enjoyed the day, the course couldn’t went better . Damian made me feel at great ease and confident for a beginner.  He asked me to do my first ever haircut on a live model, giving me clear directions which made it easier for me. My day at HEDZ Academy gave me an insight into all aspects of hairdressings and I would like to pursuit it. It really showed me how exciting and interesting this craft is. My ambition is to do great in hairdressing now” – 23 March 2014
