The science behind hairdressing was explored in an information evening at Harpenden Hair Training Academy last night (21st November).

We are enthusiastically encouraging the development of Trichology into the Harpenden Hair Training Academy as we need to ensure that our students are up to-date with the latest technology and therefore better equipped when entering the world of work.

The science behind hairdressing was explored in an information evening at Harpenden Hair Training Academy last night (21st November).
Clients are now looking to their stylist for more than a cut and colour and Trichology – the science of hair – gives hairdressers vital knowledge on topics such as hair loss, dandruff, itching and excessive scalp oiliness.

The Hair Academy is currently working towards opening the first School of Trichology in the UK and Europe to give students even greater opportunities to enter the world of work with the best possible skill set.

The presentation evening, titled Trichology – the Science of Hair, was held at the state-of-the-art facility, which is run by the Barnfield Federation in Harpenden High Street.
Two key speakers outlined the benefits of Trichology and the importance of the new approach to the hairdressing industry.

Dr David Basketter, a consultant toxicologist, hosted a presentation on hairdressing chemicals, titled The Follicle - A route to allergy? As an expert in contact dermatitis, allergies and irritations, he also looked briefly at the cosmetics directive and what it means for hairdressers and their clients.

A second talk came from consultant trichologist Brian Plunkett, who gave more specific information on the importance of Trichology in hairdressing today.

Barnfield CEO Sir Pete Birkett said: “We are enthusiastically encouraging the development of Trichology into the Harpenden Hair Training Academy as we need to ensure that our students are up to-date with the latest technology and therefore better equipped when entering the world of work.

“We were delighted to host Dr Basketter and Brian Plunkett at the Hair Academy and hope that the information evening will prove to be the first step to an interesting and successful venture together.”
