    New Hair Academy a Cut Above the Rest


    Abingdon & Witney College is excited to announce the launch of a Lee Stafford Hair and Beauty Academy, available to new students from the start of September 2016. This is the only academy of its sort in Oxfordshire.

    Celebrity hairdresser, Lee Stafford, has teamed up with Abingdon & Witney College to deliver a range of training and coaching that has been developed by Lee himself.

    Students enrolled from September will learn specially designed ‘recipes’ which are unique to Lee Stafford Education, reflecting some of the most cutting-edge styles seen in salons across the UK.

    Lee created the education arm of his business in 2012, a year after he was voted the UK’s most influential hairdresser by his peers, to introduce a single recognised training standard across the country.

    Head of Faculty for Service Industries, Sian Cound, commented “We are over the moon that we have secured what I’m sure will be an extremely beneficial partnership with Lee Stafford Education. Lee’s passion and enthusiasm for educating is obvious, and you can see that he has a desire to stay at the forefront of his field. I’m sure this passion will translate to our lecturers and students alike and I can’t wait to get started”.

    Abingdon & Witney’s hair and beauty department will spend the Summer perfecting the techniques and ‘recipes’ used by the Lee Stafford Academy, ready to pass on their knowledge to new students in September.
