Trevor Sorbie Hair Academy

Trevor’s personal philosophy is that no matter how long you’ve been in your profession, you never stop learning or improving. It is this thought and the desire to share their extensive expertise that is at the heart of our team’s education ethos.

If you share this passion and would like to learn from some of the best hairdressers in our industry, we invite you to attend our acclaimed shows, seminars and courses, where our award-winning Art Team will happily share their knowledge.

From basic to advanced, commercial hair trends to Avant Garde, cuts and colouring to texturizing, look and learn to hands on – we have courses for every hairdresser. We’re also happy to design tailor-made courses – just ask if there’s a specific seminar you require.

Our seminars are held around the world at our own (London and Shanghai) and affiliates’ academies, major hair shows and we will also happily come to your salon.

Whatever the course – our aim is to share our passion and extensive expertise, and to inspire you to try something new and help fulfil your desire to be a better hairdresser.

Please note: We've recently been experiencing issues with our email system. For more information on any of the courses below please email
