About us

Established:

HAHA established May 2012 and officially opened by the Lord Mayor April 2013.   In our first year we were nominated for Training Provider of the Year 2013 and have registered over 200 students and still growing.  We work with local schools and offer training in Hairdressing, Barbering and Beauty.

Training & Apprenticeships:

HAHA Training offer professional training to the Hair, Beauty and Barbering industry.  All our courses are City & Guilds accredited. We have fantastic employer links throughout Hampshire & Isle of Wight and the Surrey area and pride ourselves on delivering individualised training courses.

Every year we enter students into the National Hairdressing Federation Finals, Blackpool.  We have been very successful with 2nd and 4th place winners.  They have been inspired to achieve excellence by this experience.

5 Star Rating:

We have expanded our provision to the Surrey area and recently been given a 5 star rating with the Good Salon Guide.

Award Winners:

In 2013, we were nominated for ‘Training Centre of Excellence’ by the Hair & Awards.  We were extremely proud of this achievement as we were nominated by external agencies.  A year later -2014 we beat fierce competition and won our first award – Runner-Up in the same category.

Setting the Standards:

We’ve worked really hard with our school links and the younger generation to change the perception of the hairdressing industry. Hairdressing is no longer deemed as a lesser career path. We are now seeing more academic students with a natural flair and interest in hair and fashion.

As a training centre HAHA has evolved and incorporated many changes including e-portfolios, Smart Assessor, recognition within the industry, increased staff and student levels and we are now offering Barbering and Beauty. All of the salons we work with are very passionate about the quality of training and intrust us to deliver quality individualised training.

Masters of their Trade:

Our HAHA team come with years of experience within the industry and the relevant teaching/assessing qualifications. Experience include working on BBC productions, exhibitions, salon owners, FE lecturers, and award winners in their chosen profession. 

HAHA Salon:

Our bespoke salon is equipped with the state of the art resources.  We only use professional products as the training centre is functional High Street salon. We have recently reconstructed a new training area at the rear of the building due to the popularity of our course.
