PROGRAMS: Hairstyling & Barbering School

Course Overview

Avola is renowned as a great hairdressing school in Toronto. Like all hairdressing schools in Ontario, we require 1500 hours of in school training. During this time you will get access to the best instructors who will show you all the tricks of the trade. All the latest techniques in the hair care industry will be taught and studied at great length.

Your curriculum will include but is not limited to:

  • Hair cutting techniques for women
  • Barbering
  • Blow drying methods
  • Colouring/highlighting
  • Flat/curling iron usage
  • Hair Relaxing
  • Hair extension applications
  • Salon management and ownership

This Hairstyling school diploma program lasts the better part of a year, approximately 10 months in all, which is legislated for all cosmetology schools in Ontario by our provincial government. Classes are held Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. However, at Avola we do understand that signing up for a hairstyling school in Toronto may prove to be tough and you may experience a conflict with your other priorities such as family, a job, and so on. This is why we offer an option to complete this diploma with evening classes. Classes are held on Wednesday/Thursday 5:00pm to 9:30pm and Saturday from 9:30am to 4:00pm. The part time course will take 23 months to get in all of the mandatory hours but it has proved very manageable for those with commitments during the day and we are happy to help in any way possible.
