SALON SUCCESS STORIES

“Incredible school! I completed my apprenticeship here 17 years ago and now I send all of my apprentices here. Fantastic communication between school, apprentice, and salon.”

Laura Hudson

OWNER OF HUDSON HAIR

“In 2019, I changed my salon apprentices over to MIG Training as their dedicated RTO. The decision was one based on what I was seeing MIG do for the industry and apprentices, especially in relation to the Brisbane Hair & Beauty Expo, the courses offered at the college, and word of mouth reviews from industry colleagues. I honestly felt like my apprentices were missing out by not going to MIG.

Since changing over, I have been nothing but impressed. Our in-salon trainer is extremely supportive of the standards we have set for our brand and works with us to apply the RTO requirements in line with that. I’m the first to admit I had never fully appreciated the RTO and salon relationship before, but now I trust the partnership I have built with MIG and moving forward, I have enrolled my apprentices to attend the College one full day each month – something I never would have done before.

I have great respect for what MIG does for my salon and the industry, and what Anthony and his team of dedicated trainers have built.”

Kristie Kesic

OWNER OF COBELLE CREATIVE

“At Epic Hair Designs, we have tried many Brisbane hairdressing schools and by far MIG has been the best. Apprentices have plenty of clients to practice on and the trainers have the right skills to be able to teach good hairdressing practices. I highly recommend MIG for a salon that wants to grow and a salon that wants the best apprentices.”

“I am at MIG because of the flexibility in the training. I work for myself so it allows me to come and have flexibility in my learning program. It is all tailored individually, so you can go as fast as you want or you can take your time on certain things, The fact that there are so many different teachers means we get to learn the same thing several different ways and then you find out what works best for you. Also the salon environment that is created here feels like you are working in a real salon. MIG works for me and it’s the best choice I have ever made!”

Katrina Anger

“I have been coming to MIG for two years now. I really enjoy the training facilities and since the massive renovations, the space has just opened up and the natural light just floods in. It’s so good! We have a really diverse range of clients so we get a lot of different training opportunities, especially with the fresh street appeal. We get a lot of new walk ins. I also really like the teachers here. There’s a teacher for everyone, so you can find someone that you really get along with and  learn well from them. I love coming here!”

Distance Education

Access to quality education is no longer restricted by distance. I wanted to share the education story of one of the incredible salons we work with. Commitment to education, growth and learning can be a challenge when you’re trying to grow a business and it’s something to be admired when you see it done well. In particular, those that structure daily habits to foster that ongoing education and growth. Sage Hair in Longreach embodies all of these things.
