Mon. 27th July A VERY BIG THANKS to ...

our Apprentices,  and of course our clients who are coming back into the Shears Academy training salon for their services!

You are all being truly amazing, understanding the need for skin tests prior to colour during this post-covid lockdown period, and happily following all the hygiene and social distancing rules to keep us all safe - "Thank you All!" from the Shears Academy Team  


Hello all our lovely clients! We are delighted to announce that we are now taking bookings for Cuts from next week!

Call us on 020 8461 3504. If you require a follow-up colour appointment, please ask your stylist for a skin test whilst you are with us.

We promise that our salon is Covid-Secure, which means we have restricted number of clients at any one time and social distancing measures in place, so do please bear with us as you may have a further wait  before you can visit. Please wear your personal mask when attending the salon as disposable masks will be available, but we are eco-aware and aim to keep single-use waste to a minimum, thank you. 

As it is not safe to serve refreshments, please bring your drink in a lidded container and take it home again.

As it is not safe to share magazines, please feel welcome to bring your own and take it home with you.

As we can't safely offer a reception area, please arrive on time, thank you.  

For safety purposes we wish to restrict cash handling and would appreciate it if you could pre-pay for your service by bank transfer. Our bank details are:

Barclays Bank PLC. Account Name: Shears Academy Ltd.  Sort code:  20-06-72 Account No: 03153452

With thanks and love,

Hello to our lovely clients and models!

We are not yet in a position to open the Shears Academy appointment book yet, as although most salons have now reopened, many need their Apprentices at their own salons for the first week or two.

We will therefore begin taking your bookings just as soon as we know we have enough apprentices to meet demand as we do not wish to disappoint anyone of you.

Keep safe and well, we can't wait to welcome you back shortly!

With warmest wishes

The Shears Academy Team
