Hairdressing Training Salon

Melbourne Polytechnic’s Preston campus is home to our renowned Hairdressing Training Studio, which operates as a salon and is open to the public. We use top quality salon products, commercial grade equipment and take the time to give you a salon experience at an affordable price.

Our students are at varying stages of their training. All students are fully supervised by qualified educators with current industry experience. All services will require sufficient time allocated to ensure client satisfaction. It is advised that some hairdressing services will require additional time so please do not make appointments with timeline expectations.

All educators reserve the right to suspend or cancel any hair service request that is not considered achievable in their opinion, or as a result, may compromise the condition of the model’s hair. Please note: a skin test must be done at least 24-48 hours prior to the application of all permanent and non-permanent colours to rule out allergic reactions.
