Professional courses

The best hairdressing professionals never stop learning new skills (and perfecting their existing ones). These courses are aimed at stylists of various levels, and each leads to a Rainbow Room Academy certificate. ILA funding from Skills Development Scotland can be used for all of these courses, and payment is required two weeks prior to attending.
