is a fresh approach to teaching or enhancing the skills needed to become a barber. The sessions will be held on a full day within the barber shop and you can repeat the sessions until you feel comfortable. I will be personally there to guide and instruct you throughout the whole session and this way you will gain the confidence to start a career in Barbering.
Finding a way to revolutionise how barbering is currently taught has been a difficult and long process. I was working as a barber for 15 years before I went to college to gain my qualification and I can safely say I'd have struggled if I was new to the trade. Sitting in a class of 20 people, (being taught by someone who doesn't have the experience) once a week isn't the way I think you should learn. Most of the time I was actually using my skills to show and train the tutor and the other pupils! This is what made me think of ways to change the way we learn the skill of barbering. I was extremely lucky to learn the skill from a talented and experienced barber and I want to put my experience into training sessions to help others. Whether you've never even held a clipper or you just need to top up your skills there will be a training session for you, all you need is a passion to learn.
