JDO Academy is located in Amsterdam at the address below:

JDO Academy
August Allebéplein 1076
1076 AC Amsterdam

Free parking is available at the door on Sundays and every day after 7 p.m.

TIP: Enter “JDO Academy” on Google Maps, and it will take you to the right place in front of the door instead of the square. Please also communicate this to your models.

We do not handle homework for the Hairstyling Class, but do recommend practicing what you have learned at home.

No, when you take hairstyling training or education, you usually practice on a practice head. Are you already an experienced hairstylist? Then bringing a model is allowed, but please consult with us first.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to apply for student loans because JDO Academy is a private training institution.

At JDO Academy you are assured of quality and a high level. Upon completion, you will therefore receive our own JDO certificate, which we have deliberately chosen instead of an industry diploma. This is because we are proud of our CRBKO registration and the fact that 95% of our students pass. Upon completion, this will be awarded in recognition of your achievements and professionalism.

At JDO Academy, we stand for quality and consistency in our courses. Course materials are not included in the cost. While you are not required to work with our products, we encourage you to purchase our carefully curated packages. This not only ensures a high standard during training, but also ensures that we can assess all students equally. Should you need only part of the starter package, it is possible to order products separately.

If you miss a class you can make it up in another season in consultation with our coordinator.
