Hello to our lovely clients and models!

We are not yet in a position to open the Shears Academy appointment book yet, as although most salons have now reopened, many need their Apprentices at their own salons for the first week or two.

We will therefore begin taking your bookings just as soon as we know we have enough apprentices to meet demand as we do not wish to disappoint anyone of you.

Keep safe and well, we can't wait to welcome you back shortly!

With warmest wishes

The Shears Academy Team

29th May 2020 - Important Update for Employers and Apprentices

Hello Employers and Apprentices  

We sincerely hope you are all keeping safe and well.

The Shears Academy Team are preparing plans for returning to the Academy as soon as the government confirm it is safe to do so.

In line with the first salons opening on Saturday July 4th, we plan to re-open to Apprentices week commencing Monday 6th July with full Social Distance Secure measures in place to ensure the highest levels of safety for our team and apprentices. WE WILL NOT BE BOOKING IN MODEL CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, but Group A and C apprentices will be working on Training Heads and Group A and C on completeing all paper-based work, and theory.

The government is encouroughing everyone to avoid using public transport if at all possible. Therefore we have gathered information from Apprentices to enable us to Risk Assess their prospective journeys whilst attending Shears Academy. 

Priority will be given to those apprentices that are due to take EPA in June and August, and also those apprentices that have found difficulty in participating in online learning delivery. 

Employers: We will be contacting  you over the next week to discuss your apprentice's return to face to face training with us., meanwhile if you have any queries at this particular time, please email us on and we will get back to you

Warmest regards, the Shears Academy Team.
