Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty: Business in Beauty

Welcome Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty, the first college in the Philippines to teach beauty therapy, prosthetics and special effects, and grant a Diploma in Make-up Artistry.

Working on the premise that “the future of the work environment (remains) uncertain,” and that “you cannot guarantee yourself career success, but you can positively influence your prospects,” the Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty (ACHDB) recently opened its campus in Metro Manila.

In a press statement, the company states that “what is necessary is an all-embracing approach to what is essentially a lifelong campaign. You need to recognize what career skills can help you, and then ensure that you excel in them. This makes an important point. Many skills are essentially career skills – important to doing an effective job, and also to how people are seen and progress.”

ACHDB is the first college in the country to teach beauty therapy, prosthetics and special effects, and grant a Diploma in Make-up Artistry. Courses include hairdressing courses, make-up courses, and beauty courses. The Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty (ACHDB) Manila campus is the first offshore branch of ACHDB Melbourne.

According to ACHDB EVP for sales and marketing Owee Cruz, with the opening of ACHDB Manila… comes the “passport to the world of hairdressing, beauty therapy, and make-up artistry.” This is because “the standard of the ACHDB education in Manila is identical to that in Melbourne, Australia, so that, technically, (our) Filipino students are also considered Australian students only taking their course here in the Philippines. The College takes seriously the need to train hairdressers and beauty therapists to a high professional standard, with the knowledge and competencies which would enable a graduate to be part of the globalization of the beauty therapy and enter into a well paying industry that currently has more job openings than it can fill.”

The education offered by the ACHDB subsequently realizes the chances of getting an international diploma and training that will allow you to work in Australia, Milan, London, New York or in any top fashion capitals, thus achieving your dreams. Additionally, the curriculum suits degree-seekers, beauty professionals, salon owners and even career professionals and students wanting to take action and see career success as something they create.

“The basic philosophy of education and training upon which our school operates is that each student has a talent, large or small, when he or she comes to us for training in the field of hair design and beauty. We assume the responsibility of discovering and developing that talent in order that the student when fully trained might become a fulfilled and well adjusted person in his/her chosen field,” Cruz says.

The ACHDB – at the forefront of the beauty industry as the first and largest beauty college in Australia – mixes “business with the passion for beauty” as the training in hairdressing and beauty courses are composed of 75% practical application and 25% theory-based training.

“Undoubtedly, the possibilities are endless; hence the call to hone the innate creativity of the Filipino hairdressers and beauty therapists can no longer be denied,” Cruz ends.
