W Progressive & Advanced Salon Education

Master stylist Wassim Kaddura, in addition to being a W Academy founder, maintains a 500-client deep salon business through the W Salon in San Ramon, CA. To say that that we understand the unique needs of professional stylists, as well as the salons they work out of, would be a dramatic understatement.

We also understand that many professional stylists have done "the school thing" and aren't naturally excited about the prospect of going back, even if for a one-day or short-term specialty course. But again, coming from the position of someone who has owned and operated a very successful salon for 3 decades, we also know that it can be tough to find the right opportunity to professionally learn new styles, techniques, products and more - The skills you need to advance your career further.

And that friends, is the basis for the W Academy Progressive & Advanced Education program. Guest and in-house presenters teaching advanced techniques such as balayage, sugaring, threading, extensions and more.
