MOGA Hairdressing Courses | MOGA ACADEMY

Short-term hairdressing courses with a certificate from MOGA ACADEMY- Perfect for beginners and stylists who are interested in improving their skills. 
Classes are conducted by highly experienced instructors who have been working in overseas and Thailand for over 10 years. 


With over three decades of experience at the forefront of Thailand’s salon industry, MOGA prides itself on the craft and skills of its hairstylists. We believe that what defines our success lies in the quality of our staff and optimum standard of services we offered.  For this reason, MOGA ACADEMY has been set up with the vision – “to be a good hair stylist one must start from learning the very basics of hairdressing”.


The first impression you make comes from the way you look.  Your hairstyle can also determine your appearance and exert an inordinate influence on the way that you are perceived.  Therefore to make a good first impression, taking care of your hair is also very important.  During the time I was enrolled as a student at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in the United Kingdom, a male customer came to the Academy and told me about his constant failures in job interviews.  He believed his long untidy hair had been one of the reasons behind the perceived unprofessionalism his potential employer may have had about him.  Being unemployed he was not able to afford ordinary salon so he had to come to the Academy for his haircut.  Two weeks after his visit, the same customer came back to the Academy and thanked me.  He had just been employed after having had a successful job interview with his new haircut.  This particular experience has taught me that a hairstylist may not only cater to his or her clients’ desired appearance, but could also change lives in a miraculous way.  The experience has left a lasting appreciation that has grown into my passion for the hairdressing business.  But passion alone may not lead to success in this industry.  MOGA ACADEMY was therefore created with the ambition to share the knowledge, techniques and skills cultivated for over 20 years that will allow our students to gain real commercial expertise and improve their craft as hair artists.

As every customer is different and trend changes over time, a stylist will achieve a long term success only if he or she can create and design haircuts. Our curriculum includes both theory and practical parts; the basic of structure of the head, hair, and the fundamentals of each hair cutting technique. This will enable students to provide good consultations, design suitable haircuts, and offer styling recommendations that will help build long lasting relationships with his/her customers. 
All classes are taught by instructors who are currently working in our salons. We often update our curriculum to ensure that the content remains applicable and relevant to the current salon activities.
Unfortunately, our beginners hairdressing courses are conducted only in Thai. However, we can arrange private group workshops in English or Japanese with advance notice. Please contact us for more information.
