More than just a Barber Course

You will learn so much more than just becoming a barber on one of our courses, we train in small groups of around 6-8 students meaning you get the full attention of one of our award winning barber tutors throughout your course. Unlike other academies we operate a number of barber shops this means that we remain current with industry trends and our tutors spend regular time working alongside our barbers to ensure we are able to provide the most up to date practical training just one of the reasons why we were voted Best Barber Training Academy by our peers and past students.

Practical Training Approach

This 9 week course is predominantly practical based meaning you will not get caught up with tons of theory work, in fact you will be working on multiple live models throughout your training supplied by the academy. With our experienced and creative tutors by your side at all times this will help give you the confidence to be able to complete any haircut to a high standard from the pompadour/quiff through to the more challenging zero fade.

Job Support

We encourage you to build your own portfolio whilst you are with us on Instagram or other social media so that when you finish your course you are able to show perspective employers what you can do, probably the best CV they could ask for! We have many barber shops on our database that contact us regularly to recruit newly qualified barbers as they know that you will be at the top of your game when you complete your course, we encourage you to engage with these employers and can even prepare you for an interview if required.
