What you'll need:

Mannequins & stand/clamp - I'll be using Kathrin from L'image. An affordable human haired training head, that has a realistic amount of hair to work with!  I'm not a fan of learning on dolls with lots and lots of hair, as it's not true to life!  Use LAAcademy for a 10% discount..

Products - as you'll learn in this course understanding products is ESSENTIAL to becoming a great bridal hairstylist. I'll be working with the full Stylr Pro range only during the course, to show that you don't need 100s of sprays to create different styles.  Plus they are non aerosol (kinder to our planet) and cruelty free! Use code LISA15 for 15% off!

Tools - I'll be using my go to Stylr Pro Straightener and Wand, along with their 3 brushes to create every look!  Use code LISA30 for 30% off Stylr Pro tools

Hair extensions - (optional) Working with a dolls head with thinner and shorter hair (that's more realistic) and learning to confidently work with hair extensions, to help our brides-to-be achieve their dream Pinterest looks, is what makes a successful bridal stylist! I'll be using these 16" clip in extensions from ClipHair. Use discount code LISA10 for 10% discount.

Other - The only other items you'll need are a crocodile or butterfly clip, Bobby pins, U pins and aluminium clips (I use Hair Tools and buy from Amazing), aluminium clips, clear elastics & a blonde hair donut (again from Amazon).

Please note: discount codes are applicable to UK purchases only.

What others have to say about this course


"I’ve been hairdressing for 15ish years now and some of those techniques I didn’t have a clue, so was super helpful to learn new ideas to make life easier!"


"Learning which product to use, why, how and when was so good as I had no idea what products did what. I can now use this knowledge to work out what a certain hair type needs to create a hair style that will last."


"I loved how easy it is to breakdown styles now. It makes so much sense now when looking at hairstyles and thinking what you needs to do to each section."


"There is so much to learn in the academy and you bring out new stuff all the time. I’m so happy with my membership as I feel I’m continuously learning and securing my techniques. I wouldn’t change a thing!"
