Hair design of yesteryear is behind us, and a new, exciting road awaits you!
Johnny Matthew’s Hairdressing Training School has made downtown Salem home for the past two and a half years. We are the newest school in town, delivering our innovative and modern training system to the new generation of hairdressers and tomorrow’s leaders in this amazing industry.
Hair Design Training for Your Career Success
Once you enroll at Johnny Matthew’s, you begin two weeks of intensive training to prepare you for the basics of cutting and coloring. After two weeks, you integrate with other students on the salon floor, and begin taking your first clients. We believe the first two weeks are the most important – that’s when you develop the habits that you will take with you for the rest of your journey. We also believe that getting you out and comfortable on the floor quickly is important; we want you to gain the greatest amount of supervised time on the floor so you feel fully competent when you graduate and secure a position in a salon. You can learn and grow at your own pace, while we provide structure and guidance through our textbook and weekly classes that foster discussion and breakdown the material for greater understanding.
We provide junior and senior sessions in both our hairdressing and barbering classes at specific intervals in order to further your education. You will learn advanced personalization techniques, more complex haircuts and layering patterns, along with hair color placement options. Once you’ve completed your training, you will be ready to go out into the workplace and provide quality hair services that can rival the ‘best hairdresser in town’.
The hairdressing program at Johnny Matthew’s comprises 1,700 hours training, which can be completed in 10-12 months. We encourage students to be here at the school as often as possible to ensure that they receive the most education, and gain the highest level of confidence by the time graduation arrives. We offer low monthly payments, and work with all types of schedules and lifestyles.
