As the company grows, and the demand for a good hairdresser is rising, Björn Axén launches their own education: Björn Axén Academy. A way to shape, teach, educate and recruit the very best.
Björn Axén Academy has up until today educated more than 1000 hairdressers and in 2015 they received the award “Intercoiffure Mondial”, as the best academy amongst the Nordic Countries.
