U might wanna try Toni & Guy. They're very reputed though $$$.

I've read on other posts very bad reviews on Kimage. Anyway T & G is an International School so if you want a good cert that'll be internationally recognised, go for it! :D


Is it worth $$$ for Toni&Guy Academy?

Virgostar, u have only read bad posts of Kimage or others but not Toni&Guys. They too have their fair share of bad opinions here from me & others.

Every student pay for value-added service. I am glad the Singapore Consumer Association has enforced very strict regulations on such schools.

Toni&Guy Academy may be pro but all its trainers. Most of its trainers are supporting stylists from their other salons. Some of my korean friends who have just attended a short course in the school. They gave total thumb down for a lady trainer called May, for her demostration of an extremely simple & brief hairdo which is so common & can be found in all salons! We are expecting international extraordinary standard by her, not your local small salon style where any auntie stylist can do the same.

My korean friends told me they are only very pleased with one guy trainer called Benson. They said he is very professional. I only regret he is not my trainer during my time as my sub-standard trainer is a junior with full of vulgarities in his mouth whenever he lecture us.

I am going back to my hometown in India soon to start my own hairdressing salon. The $$$ I spend for a Toni&Guy course in Singapore early this year - is huge enough for me to buy a piece of huge land in Chennai. With so much $$$ spend for a hairdressing course, you should understand why we have very high expectations of Toni&GUy trainers. Sadly to say, other than this Benson whom I heard of, & a British called Matthew, the other part-time trainers have to undergo THOROUGH training themselves first.

My other friends in Kimage are doing quite well, right after their graduation. Kimage & Jean Yip have prospective jobs & business opportunities created for their students. However, Toni&Guy have none. Most of their graduate students are left all alone in their endeavours.

4th paragraph should read:
Toni&Guy Academy may be pro but NOT all its trainers.


Which academy is best in international styles?

Can someone please share with me which hairdressing school (if any, in Singapore) is good, if not best in international hairstyles, other than Toni&Guys, Jean Yip, Kimage? Are these three the only players in Singapore???

What you all fail to remember is that Toni & Guy are now a franchise and all though need to meet a certain criteria to purchase the name dont necessarily have the same standard of cutting or colouring as the main London branch. People be realistic its better to go on stylist recommendation than on salon name alone that way you wont be dissapointed.

In my opinion, dun just listen to one side of the story. There's always 2 sides to a story.

I've been to Toni&Guy courses, both in Singapore and in the UK. I have to say, the standard here is just as good! The trainers here are very patient and understanding to your personal needs. All I gotta say is that they know their stuff.

Regarding finding a job, hairdressing is all about how much experience you've got with hair. School will only teach you the basics and theory, but when you're working in the salon, you'll meet different hair types and problems. You will NOT be able to solve problems, if you're still a newbie.

As a client, I wouldn't want a just-graduated STUDENT to do my hair! I'll be afraid you might screw it up! Even if you're the best student! You've justgot no experience!

2 words- Be patient.

I think personal attacks shouldn't be made to the poor girl. The moderator to this website should delete this thread, as it has probably caused upsetting sentiments to the involved parties. Should the mentioned party/parties sue for defamation or libel, it would turn out ugly.
