Hair stylist, global educator, renowned speaker and now author, Tracey Hughes has officially launched her long-awaited unique Hairdressing Training Manual. Tracey has been tirelessly working toward publication for over a year, whilst touring the world to deliver her dedicated education programs. Pioneering a first, Tracey’s Hairdressing Training Manual is a publication like no other, full of step-by-step techniques and theory components that will allow hairdressers to excel beyond competency, and transition their skills from beginner through to a qualified competent level and beyond. “This is the best training resource I have seen in all my years of being involved in the hairdressing industry. Salons just don’t have the time to develop a tool like this, but they greatly need it. A great investment for training of apprentices and for re-training senior hairdressers,” said Faye Murray, Your Coach, Hall of Fame 2011.

With new studies showing that only 1% of industry profit is being spent on education globally, this is alarming for the future growth of the hairdressing industry . In her new manual and in her role as expert educator, Tracey shares insightful “Trainer’s Tips” on how to facilitate training effectively, and covers topics from customer service, consultations, and retailing through to styling, cutting, colour and perming. “Compiling this manual has been a labor of love for me and an avenue in which I can give back to the industry something we desperately need. The manual is designed for salons to be able to train their own teams in conjunction with their external training providers,” said Tracey.

This fully comprehensive Training Manual will assist salon owners, trainers, teachers and educators to deliver methodical and consistent theory and practical training to their students and staff. The manual comes complete in full colour hard copy and on disk, while a beautiful design showcasing Tracey’s striking imagery complements the detailed instructions, diagrams and illustrations.
