Hairdressers and Training Academy Darlington

Hairdresser Training at Kleek Academy Darlington

Based at the heart of Darlington on Duke Street, Kleek Academy Darlington supports apprentices and employers across Darlington and beyond. It has easy access for apprentices and clients with the Darlington Station a short walk away and ample parking directly across from the academy.

The Kleek Hairdressing Academy Darlington offers hands-on training in a fantastic salon, so hairdressing apprentices are still receiving in-salon experience with the added benefit of being supported by experienced educators in a friendly and welcoming environment.

So impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the apprentice. She was so confident when carrying out the consultation and selected the perfect colour for my hair.

The trainer Holly had a great relationship with all the apprentices, she empowered their decision making and her encouragement was lovely to watch . I’m thrilled with my hair and would happily model for the Kleek apprentices anytime.

Thank you!

I would certainly recommend the Academy. I have been there several times but today I was really impressed by my highlights and haircut done by Maisie Ross. Extremely professional and confident and a great result. Well done Maisie, I will certainly be back to see you!
