The Academy

At the very heart of our work at the Academy lies our 3-Week Course Curriculum THE ART OF HAIR STYLING, designed to give you an intense learning experience of gaining invaluable skills in the most essential techniques in the world of Session Hair Styling.

The course is structured as six Two-Day & Three-Day Modules, each set out for you to attain a level of editorial perfection in your working with the styling techniques taught on each course.

We have the greatest sense of the busy working-lives of professional stylists, so each of our courses can also be booked as a stand-alone Intensive Short Course, giving you the unique opportunity to select specific subjects that meet the specialist skills you are seeking to nurture, advance and perfect. We currently run our series of courses four times throughout the year, accepting a maximum of six applications for each course – providing you with an intimate and highly focused learning experience to advance and build upon the confidence, versatility & artistry in your work.

How to choose your courses

If you are looking to book individual Short Courses, we recommend you browse through each course description and make a selection depending on your experience and keen interest in each field. We do advise stylists fairly new to the world of Session Hair Styling to consider working your way through the courses in a chronological order from Module One to Module Six.

All of our courses are run as Master-classes and go far beyond covering the basics in each subject. Across all courses, Kevin and our guest-tutors share and guide you through their most intricate & sophisticated styling techniques, which have taken them many years to perfect.

I had the most incredible time at the Kevin Fortune Academy on the Period Styling Techniques course. As a makeup artist trying to find the time to fit in a long course is impossible, this was both intense and rewarding, everything I needed! Being taught by a legend was inspiring and I highly recommend it. Everyone was so warm and welcoming, thank you Martin and Kevin x – KATIE CORCORAN
