    Our story

    We realised that newly-qualified hairdressers and beauticians struggled to adapt to life outside of a classroom setting as they had no experience of working in real-life salon situations.

    In founding RJL Education, our founder Ruby designed her courses to be intensive but extremely informative in all aspects of the profession: practical, theoretical, and real-life scenarios – all in a fraction of the time of the traditional way of learning.

    Every tutor at RJL has been hand-picked by Ruby to take advantage of their many years of experience in both a salon and education environment, to give you that precious real-world scenario experience. Ruby has also partnered with globally recognised brands and their learning platforms, to provide you with everything you need to succeed in your chosen profession.

    Fast Track Courses

    Our unique intensive training courses teach you all the necessary skills that you need to succeed in a much shorter time frame than anywhere else. Our compulsory extra modules also provide our learners with unique business, client consultation and social media lessons that will help you once you qualify.

    All of our courses are fully insured.

    bespoke CPD accredited courses

    RJL education is where you can learn it all. Our experienced educators teach you specialist techniques using live models and practical sessions, allowing you to take your skills to the next level. We are a centre of CPD excellence and all of our courses are insured.
