* Please note, if you wish to book a colour service in the Academy, we advise you to come in a few days prior to your appointment in order to undergo a patch test and a consultation, to ensure we are able to deliver the colour service you are looking for.


Can I choose what kind of haircut or colour I have?

Yes of course - the academy services are very similar to a normal salon appointment, whereby you will have a full consultation at the start to explain to your stylist or colourist the style or colour you would like.
If you are modelling for a seminar, you will be required to undergo quite a big change, or have something ‘creative’ done - if this is not what you’re after, book for the Apprentice or Graduate Academy instead. 

Can I choose who does my hair?

Yes, usually, as long as your chosen student is fully capable of doing the cut or colour you wish. Just state your preference when booking and we will do our best to accommodate. 

Do you have opportunities for paid modeling work?

Yes, if you have the required look and hairstyle to be modelling in our catwalk shows or for our photoshoots. If you are interested in this type of work then please contact Elle on models@hobsalons.com with plenty of photographs of yourself plus your full details.

I'm not sure what I should book for and where! Who can I contact?

Email: models@hobsalons.com with a current photo of your hair along with the brief description of the look you hope to achieve. We will be happy to assist you with booking on relevant course.
