An artist has to know and fully understand the medium on which he works, what he must shape with his creativity.
Rica Academy is born from this idea. A professional academy that acts as a collector of the Rica Education Program. A physical place located within the company but also an itinerant academy that moves on the territory according to the needs of the single clients.
An academy that looks at continuous research and updates. It represents a mode that our clients can aspire in order to become point of reference of style and to offer to their clients knowledge and exclusive proposals.
The Rica Academy training program includes technical, stylistic and fashion courses, but also cutting, coloring, styling and haircare classes.
Training courses created with a unique and exclusive method that combines specific technical knowledge with creative and stylistic research associated with the passion that has always been the trade union of the Rica world.
« The performance of a product is often compromised by an incorrect use. Hence Rica has invested in the Academy and in a busy training program and technical courses with different levels of teaching. »
