Dive into the world of Afro and textured hair with a variety of online and offline courses to take your skillset to the next level, courtesy of Avlon Education Sessions.

Avlon is vitally aware that the industry lacks knowledge on working with Afro-Textured hair, and as a reputable market leader they are helping to change that. Avlon Education integrates a network of hair experts, who are recognised worldwide. You’ll likely know that Avlon offers iconic products. But the brand also understands the business of hairdressing and the importance of creativity. Therefore education is a key focus. By sharing knowledge Avlon helps stylists find the confidence and competence to work with
Afro-Textured hair.

As part of the Avlon family, you will be supported with advice, education, and creative opportunities. Jacqui McIntosh, Avlon’s European education director, is a powerhouse within the hairdressing industry. She has worked in a number of roles, such as a technical educator, salon manager, and teacher/assessor and academy director. Joining Avlon over 22 years ago as a freelance educator, she has greatly contributed to Avlon’s education reputation. Jacqui, who oversees and manages the educational teams says, “We’re passionate about giving back to colleges, professionals and salons, ensuring they receive ongoing education to help them thrive and stand out from the competition. Afro hairdressing has always been included within qualifications structures. However, currently in the UK, knowledge and techniques regarding Black hair care are not embedded within the core curriculum assessment strategy, leaving learners lacking the core skills required to treat a growing section of the multicultural population.”

In response, Avlon has been working with training partners and awarding bodies by supporting them with both theory and technical knowledge, ensuring that learners are taught all aspects of Afro hairdressing that support core services within the salon. This has aided in building confidence within these areas and amplified interest within the specialist technical areas.

Professional education
