DCI Education




The Elevate Pro Live Online Program is designed to take aspiring hairdressers on a personalised journey of learning via live online learning. It will elevate your skills in hairdressing to a higher level and is designed for hairdressers who are looking for additional structure and control in their work with our salon friendly techniques. Over the 10 modules throughout the year, you will gain confidence learning 10 classic minimal timeless haircuts. Progressing from long to shorter lengths, the core techniques of classic minimal precision cutting will be perfected with our care and guidance. You will also learn our unique approach to client consultations to ensure your work is supported when you go back to the salon. Our courses are known to help and guide you through every step of the way.

Our unique approach ensures that the face shape & bone structure are understood before you consider a sustainable haircut for each client.

DCI Education’s founder Dario Cotroneo will lead a  group through regular, monthly LIVE ONLINE classes, covering cutting, styling and consultation.  By developing consistency in work, sessions are designed to provide hairdressers with a new confident path to build and retain clientele.

Changing hair dressers lives in a positive way is the driving force behind our growth over the last 22 years.

Each month for 10 months, students will attend a 2-3 hour live online workshop. Working through each session with other like-minded hairdressers, students will be given individual tasks to perform between sessions for assessment, which will accelerate faster learning and foster a sense of achievement and fun.

The Elevate Pro Live Online program is for hairdressers truly committed to hairdressing who are unable to make it to the face to face class, who want not only core hairdressing skills, but also the inspiration and guidance to shine and have a positive and bright future in hairdressing.
