Gainfort Academy has won an impressive list of awards and accolades, including RSVP Leading Beauty School, The Irish Hair and Beauty Awards, The Irish Makeup Awards, Be Fabulous Hair Awards and most recently the HiStyle Tia Maria Award for Best Beauty Academy in Ireland. Gainfort Academy has also just been nominated for Best Training Academy in this year’s Irish Hair and Beauty Awards.

Gainfort Academy is the leading centre of excellence in the South East for training in Hairdressing, Beauty, Barbering, Teacher Training and Complementary Therapies. Courses offered are tailored to give their students the edge in the competitive job field. The Academy recognises the need to make their students education as commercially relevant as possible in order to ensure students leave with a great CV and are fully equipped to embark on a fantastic career. The structure of training at the Academy enables students to fit training in with other commitments such as employment and childcare. The Academy also accepts transition year students on their certificate courses.

Enrolments are under way now for the new Academic year. Today’s salons have become more diverse, now offering both hair and beauty services to their clients. We at Gainfort Academy recognise this, and in turn have developed unique packages giving students the qualifications and extra techniques they need to be sought after by top salons and spas.

With full time and part time options available in our hair and beauty courses, we can ensure there is something to suit everyone. “Our students are our first priority – there are no gimmicks and no hidden extras with our courses and every qualification is taught by an expert in that field” says Academy Director Fiona Gainfort. We care about our students and we are here to make them be the very BEST that they can be!”
