The Mova Training Academy

Hairdresser Training at Mova Hair Salon in Staines-upon-Thames

We are proud to have our very own dedicated in-house academy at our Mova salon in Staines-upon-Thames.  We offer staff the highest levels of training in classic cutting, styling and colouring techniques.

Mova Directors Giuseppe Vaccaro and Tom Green ensure all staff are continuously educated on a weekly basis to guarantee quality and consistency in their work.

Mova’s Diploma Course is a step-by-step progression through the NVQ curriculum, with classes every Monday in our in-house school. This intensive course includes theory, salon demonstrations and practical, hands-on experience in the salon using live models. Students are taken through each individual module meticulously, developing the precise skills required to become a qualified hairdresser with an NVQ qualification at the end of the course.

Diploma students also attend seminars and workshops run by our professional product range suppliers. These are an essential part of the syllabus and cover topics such as client care, consultations, product care and advice, giving the students an insight into their future contribution to the effective running of the salon and essential customer care and service.

Our Training Academy Director Jade oversees the training of our hairdressing apprentices.  The academy is open at Mova Staines on Mondays from 9.30am to 5.30pm if you would like a haircut or colour by one of our apprentices.  For appointments, please call the usual salon number from Tuesday to Saturday.  

Jade says: "I’ve worked for Mova since 2015. I completed my training here and it gave me all the confidence I needed to become an experienced hairdresser. Since qualifying I have always been part of the training academy helping to train the next generation of hairdressers in and out of the academy and I have always felt very passionate about it. Eventually I was running my own academy days and I absolutely loved it. So naturally when the opportunity came about the run the school entirely I grabbed it with both hands!"

"I’m so passionate about our trainees and have all the patience in the world for them. My favourite part is when they believe they cannot do something and when they finally get it, it’s seeing the look on their face that they can! It’s a very fulfilling job and extremely rewarding at the end of the day. It’s so nice to see the newly qualified students on the shop floor building their own colums and smashing it!"
