About Us

Established in 1994, the Academy changed its name in 2011 to Harrington Vaughan Academy of Hairdressing. Our purpose built facility at 24 Filleul Street, Dunedin, reflects the modern salon environment and innovative teaching spaces.

From entry level training while still at school, (gateway) through to full time advanced training & qualification, including Hairdressing, Professional Development, Beauty & Makeup, the Academy can offer a program to suit you.

The Academy is a registered and accredited Category One Private Training Establishment with NZQA and the TEC and is based in the heart of Dunedin City, New Zealand.

All Educators are qualified hairdressers and/or beauty/makeup artists with years of commercial hairdressing experience behind them. Educators are kept up to date with the latest trends and fashions through work exposure in our commercial salon and through attending workshops and educational seminars. This ensures that you are always being trained in the latest techniques and styles.

Harrington Vaughan Academy operates an Academy salon where you will be provided with "real life" experiences and clients.
