BIBA has been playing a leading role in the hairdressing industry for over 40 years now, with its first salon established in 1975. The original salon was located on Main Street, Box Hill and solely operated by present director of BIBA, Paul Divitaris. More salons soon followed in Greensborough and Boronia. During the 1980?s, additional salons were opened including Moonee Ponds, Hawthorn and Mont Albert. In the 90's, Camberwell, Richmond, Fitzroy, Hawthorn, Forest Hill and another Moonee Ponds salon took off. In the 00?s salons in Carlton, Clifton Hill, Balwyn and Doncaster opened. Today there are 14 BIBA Salons operating in Melbourne and one in Taiwan. Each BIBA salon is owned and operated by BIBA trained graduates. This has been our key in keeping the real BIBA technique of cutting throughout our salons. It wasn't until the late 90's when the Hairdressing Academies were established, first in Collingwood then Fitzroy and Windsor. Now we have BIBA Academies operating in Fitzroy and in Melbourne?s city centre. Originally the Academy was established to train and motivate the company staff; however the Academy grew with new legislation which granted us the right to deliver education as Nationally Accredited Providers.
BIBA Academy graduates are some of the most highly sort after stylists in Australia. Uniting current techniques with superb customer service, all students are trained to behave as professionally as they would in the workplace.
Our courses for local and international students include:
Certificate II in Hairdressing (Pre-Apprenticeship in Hairdressing)

BIBA Academy have two central locations in Fitzroy and Melbourne CBD.
Practical experience is key to a BIBA Academy education. BIBA campuses are salon-simulated environments where practical work is done. Hair styling is conducted on live models, ensuring our students are exposed to the situations present in everyday salons.
Our team of specialists teachers participate in ongoing development programs locally and around the world. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of industry trends, and work hard to create an inspiring learning environment where precision and excellence is not only aspired to, but achieved.
