Markis is one of our hand-selected Biba Educators, at our Hairdressing Academy in Melbourne. He’s fresh from a six year hairdressing stint in central London, and we’re delighted to have him on our team, at Biba Academy.
“It was my dream to work with the leading Hairdressing Academy in Australia, and that’s why I’m here! The company has a strong connection with Wella and their new global technology and pertinent advancements, and that channels into our creative and dedicated team. I’m fully involved with our students and just love taking our newbies from day one, and coaching them, firstly, in the Fundamentals (exploring the development of their skills in cutting and styling, dress, hair-ups and theory) and shaping and moulding them into ‘Little Bibas’. Throughout their hairdresser course, our aim is to always be inclusive with our students, and make them feel supported, so that their confidence in their abilities grows as quickly as possible. To see their passion for what they’re learning, as they move on to do colouring and perming, and eventually graduate, gives me a great sense of achievement and success.”
As one of our key Educators, Markis thrives on our innovative Biba culture and continues to seize opportunities to grow his own skills through competitive hair shows, by watching out for what’s trending in current and avante garde looks, and by getting involved in Fashion Week regularly. Just recently, Markis was awarded National Top Ten in the 2017 Wella TrendVision Colour Vision Awards, and shall be attending the Australian Finals in New Zealand later this year. He loves the fresh, positive, uplifting feel of our Fitzroy Biba Academy and the revolving door of regular students we experience, from both Australia and from other countries around the world.
“Our dedication to helping our students develop excellent communication skills, and our salon-simulated training methods are world-class and that’s what sets us apart as the best Hairdressing RTO in Australia. Whether our students do their self-paced training over twelve months, two years, or three years, one thing’s for certain, when they leave us, we feel proud to have delivered them with the skills they’ll need to be the most incredible hairdressers of the future that they can possibly be.” Markis Weishaeim (2017)
