The lessons are interesting and leave plenty of space for questions and discussion. Every class begins with a demonstration from one of Hair Xtacy's very own award-winning hair professionals and ends with students acquiring hands-on experience with mannequins from their kits. I have always felt that the academy salon had a wholesome atmosphere given that instructors are always available to you and they know you by name. You don't feel like you're ‘just a number’. I did a lot of research before deciding to pursue an education with Hair Xtacy Academy but the most notable feature was learning in a smaller group setting and getting the attention you need to cultivate your craft. The instructors and senior stylists are so supportive and friendly that when presented with the opportunity, I decided to stay and continue to grow with the Hair Xtacy brand. Everyone in the salon from students to instructors and stylists all have meaningful connections and you always feel part of something greater than yourself.

The academy has created a welcoming, small circle environment where students are encouraged to know their teachers and gain from their professional experience. Industry professionals play dual roles as mentors as well as stylists here at Hair Xtacy Salon Ironstone and academy. Carmen cares deeply about creating an enriching experience for future stylists and goes above and beyond than just teaching the basic fundamentals. He makes sure that our teachers are also instilling modern day salon practices and prepares us for client consultations, social media presence and product knowledge. I started first as a co-op student while in my last year of high school and just seeing the passion everyone shared for hair made me realize that this was something I could do for a living and be happy. I never regretted my decision and I am proud to say that I stayed with Hair Xtacy Salon Ironstone upon graduating.

Having an academy run in a salon held with very high esteem is an incredibly unique and inclusive environment to learn in. Even as students we were always welcome to listen in on presentations from successful companies such as Wella and Oribe and gained both valuable product knowledge and new techniques. Since graduating from Hair Xtacy Academy I have been very successful in my apprenticeship and was almost immediately qualified to take clients at my new salon because of my learned skills.

Learning from the real masters of hair themselves has definitely been an experience to keep. More than that, I am so lucky to have created genuine friendships along the way. I am grateful to Frozan, our Colour Director and mentor, for always offering the best instructions and advice. You can ask her any question and she’ll be there with all the answers. Even on days when she is not instructing students she can be seen working on clients from big colour corrections to your everyday blondes and then she brings those experiences to the classroom. Frozan is undeniably hard working and for the rest of my life, I will be extremely thankful for having a brilliant educator like her. The students are very lucky to have her.

I graduated of Hair Xtacy Academy in December 2021. I am so glad I decided to go with Hair Xtacy Academy. Frozan, Anthony and Amanda were amazing. They all had a wide range of experience and expertise. At the end of the 10 months, I was ready to work in the salon. I would recommend Hair Xtacy Academy for anyone interested in the field
