Education, inspiration, method.

An artist must truly know and understand the medium he works with, what he has to shape with his creativity. From this idea Rica Academy was born. A professional academy that acts as the collector of the Rica Education Program. A physical place located within the company but also a travelling academy that moves around the territory according to the needs of individual customers.

An academy that aims at continuous research and updating, it represents a measure to which our interlocutors can aspire in order to become points of reference for style so as to offer their clients exclusive skills and proposals.

The Rica Academy training package includes technical, stylistic and fashion courses, as well as cutting and colouring, styling and haircare. Training courses realised 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 fil rouge of the Rica world.
