Courses & Training
Staff Training at Abstract Hair Design
“We never underestimate the benefits of thorough treatments…”
At Abstract Hair we understand the importance of continual training. It is a wonderful motivational tool for all our staff, as well as a challenge for them to always be striving to better themselves. As well as training for new services we often go back to basics, thus ensuring that we never underestimate the benefits of offering thorough treatments. We keep up to date with our cosmetic houses and introduce all services that they recommend to us, and in doing so our team receive full training by them. This often includes residential training where our team is away for several days. This allows them to interact with other professionals in the same industry and gain more confidence as well as knowledge. In-house training is offered weekly as we utilize any rare quiet periods to strengthen any areas that our team feel that they may need further tuition on. We take the attitude that we will never stop training and re-training as we are very aware of the power of education and our need for continual personal growth. “In-house training is offered weekly…”
And to succeed we all have to work together.
That’s why we promise that “our standards are as high as yours”.

Salon Owner Kerry in 1994 did her apprenticeship with Essenelle who at the time were the largest hair and beauty industry in the nation. “Here I learnt the skills that would take me on an amazing journey into the creative hairdressing world. I then went to work for Craig Malcolm and bought this salon in 2000 where it then became Abstract Hair.”
I am a qualified assessor and teacher. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside many celebrities and was even flown out the Cannes Film Festival to style the amazing Suzanne Collins in the feature film ‘Charlie Noades RIP.’ These opportunities that my amazing team and I have achieved, have been featured in ‘OK’ and ‘Hello’ magazines aswell as national newspapers.
As a salon owner of Abstract, I believe that constant education is the way forward. This is what has set us apart from our competition. The staff will always receive training to keep us up to date with the current styles for you, our client.
