52-Week Academy

At Fringe, we are committed to providing our assistants with a comprehensive education that will enable them to be truly great hairdressers. We believe that if we are not constantly learning, we are not growing. That is why we offer a 52-week, in-salon advanced education program for hair cutting and coloring that is created specifically for our team.

Curriculum includes:

  • In-salon instruction working directly with master stylists, Kim Hammer and Donna Ferrer. The assistant to educator ratio is two-to-one. Classes take place every Monday at our Springfield Avenue location.
  • The bulk of the curriculum is divided into hair cutting and color. However, many other subjects are covered, such as makeup, retail, customer service, consultation, special occasion hairstyling, and more
  • Outside classes and workshops through Aveda at their Soho location, as well as additional outside education opportunities as they arise.
  • Outside education brought on-site to Fringe.

Once all curriculum requirements are met, assistants will present models to the salon staff. They will describe all the techniques they used to create their finished look. Assistants will then graduate from the program and advance to the junior stylist level.
