Welcome to Leslie Frances Hairdressing Training

In celebration of National Apprenticeship Week please see the below short videos from Rob Eaton, British Hairdresser of the Year, who describes what's so incredible about a hairdressing apprenticeship and the importance as an employer to create home grown talent and create the next generation of hairdressers.

Voted British Hairdressing Awards 'Hairdresser of the Year', Robert is a multi-award-winning stylist and the Creative Director at both Russell Eaton Salons. 

Please see below a video which gives you a snippet of our virtual taster events.  We have events available on the 15th & 16th February, if you would like to attend please complete our online application.

Further to the government's recent announcement, both Barnsley and Sheffield Academies have moved to 6 hours remote on-line working from Tuesday 5th January (all apprentices have been in contact with their Tutors to ensure they continue to progress with their qualification).
