MA Institute of Hair and Beauty is the brainchild of Sophie Oakes, the Daughter of hairdressers Tony and Sandra.
Being surrounded by the industry from birth, Sophie has a great understanding of the needs of Hairdressers and Beauty Therapists alike.
In 2003, she turned her focus to Education. Offering short courses to the local industry community and public alike.

Sophie has carefully gathered a staff that are dedicated to delivering quality education and are as passionate about the industry as she is. They are industry leaders with extensive experience, a hunger for education and a constant desire to stay current in their craft.
When deciding on which brand partners to use, Sophie had a difficult choice. She chose Wella (hair) and Sothys (Beauty) due to their Quality, commitment to education and technical support.
With a focus on “Job readiness”, Sophie created the Student Salon, this runs 4 days a week allowing students the flexibility when completing their required practical hours.
