Located in Msida, our Academy is our hub for creativity and learning. It is here that our junior stylists are hosted for their weekly training sessions, as well as where we welcome participants who wish to improve their cutting skills, colouring skills or product knowledge through short training courses, all led by our stellar education team.


As a company, we believe very much in continuous education. This is crucial to us not only for skills refinement, but also to maintain and boost motivation and drive.

We want to create a team that can keep our clients wowed, but that also strives to be better every day. And ultimately, we want our team to love what they do, which is why we have regular opportunities for training for all stylists, so that they may get together, inspire each other, and add fuel to each other’s creative flames.


The staff in training are at different stages in their training journeys but all are monitored by one of our more senior team members who form part of our education team, so rest assured that you will leave the salon satisfied with the end result.


We are always on the lookout for models looking to get a colour or cut done. Colour services range from natural highlights to more avant garde colours, and we are open to creativity and strive to work with a variety of hair types.


If you are interested in being a hair model during one of our training sessions, send us a photo of what your hair currently looks like together with a photo of what you would like to have done. We will then pair you with a member of our team who will be in touch with you to set up a consultation. We look forward to seeing you at our Academy!

*Training takes place every Monday from 8:30am-5:30pm.

A few words from our students

I recently visited Dean Gera for a hair appointment during a training session and my experience was nothing short of wonderful. The salon maintained its high standards of service, ensuring that all clients received the utmost care and attention. The educators were particularly commendable, frequently checking in on the stylists who were training and providing them with guidance and support. The salon's commitment to quality and education is evident and my hair turned out beautifully.

Training at the Dean Gera Academy brings me out of my comfort zone. Every time I leave training I always feel like I have achieved and accomplished something new. I find this opportunity different from other training groups/schools because everybody is on a different level and it’s always amazing to train with people who have the same goals but are on different paths!

EllaDean Gera Academy

Being able to train at the Academy has had a huge impact on my learning experience as a hairdresser. It is a safe space that is fun to learn and practice but also makes a difference in my skills and techniques, helping me move forward in my career. Here you can tackle your weaker skills head on whilst learning new and techniques and practices. Without training at the Academy, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Emma BDean Gera Academy

I had a fantastic experience with my hair training! The educators not only excelled in hair colour, highlights, and haircuts but also gave us valuable lessons on staying calm during peak hours. Their expertise transformed my skills, and I'm grateful for the growth and newfound calmness in a busy salon environment.
