The Program at the Vancouver Hair Academy is a little different...

The Vancouver Hairdressing Academy course runs for 6 months, with classes 3 days a week from 10am- 6pm. The program cost is currently $9500, textbook (on tablet with videos, yours to keep) cost of $1000 (textbook is now all course material loaded on a new iPad Mini, which the student keeps) and a kit fee of $2000, which is for all your professional equipment and mannequins.


For students paying the entire tuition up front, there will be a $500 reduction in tuition. *Please note this discount only applies if the student finishes at least 10 weeks of the course. If the student is dismissed or leaves the course for any reason in less than 10 weeks, the former student will forfeit the discount.


The VHA's agenda is a simple one: We are raising the bar in the hairdressing school industry. After finishing the Vancouver Hairdressing Academy course, you will be fully prepared for the realities of the beauty business.


Our curriculum is taken from the apprenticeship program created by 

Michael Levine in 1998 and used by Michael and his education team to train hundreds of young hairstylists, a training system that has helped produce 5 Canadian Hairdresser of the Year Award Winners.


The Vancouver Hairdressing Academy is the fastest and most progressive way to train a new hairstylist anywhere in North America. We will have you cutting hair on the first day, and colouring hair by the fourth.

There is little emphasis placed on dated areas and techniques that are rarely used. This course is for the student that wants to achieve the highest levels in the industry. If you have low-expectations of this business, there are plenty of other schools that can lead you to a career in mediocrity. We will teach you how to be the best, most successful stylist you can be.


Regular attendance and a great attitude are the minimum requirements. You will be held to a high level of professionalism, from dress code, to appearance, to customer service. After finishing this course, you will be prepared to set foot in any of the best salons in North America. And in many cases, you will help raise the bar for that company's standard of employee.
