Why we started

"To give you a chance to learn hair and beauty like in Europe and get international certification, without leaving Sri Lanka"


There are many courses you can find from different hair and beauty schools and academies in Sri Lanka. But is the quality the same? Will they help you to become a professional? Will they guarantee you a top career in this field?

The answer sometimes is NO.

'IHB courses are made according to the guidance and advice of European hair & beauty trainers and experts and our teaching is also international level',

says IHB Education founder Nayana Karunaratne.


We want to give you a genuine chance to learn hair and beauty like in Europe, without leaving Sri Lanka, to become a true professional! With a modern hair & beauty academy located in the very heart of Colombo, you can conveniently follow the selection of Diploma-level hair and beauty courses we offer plus advanced courses.


You'll receive the best value for money through our courses, in completing an internationally-recognized hair and beauty education. Plus, the quality of education and training received along with the guidance of our personal mentors, will help you secure a guaranteed top career in the hair and beauty industry in Sri Lanka and abroad, whether at high-end salons, the fashion industry, the bridal & wedding industry, or in other areas.

From our hub in Colombo, Sri Lanka, over time, we've successfully branched out to India, where we enjoy a reputation as a leading authority in European-standard hair and beauty education. And more recently, we've stepped into Bangladesh and Pakistan!

So we look forward to having you study at our esteemed,  global hair and beauty institution.
