What you'll learn

Throughout the course, we’ll teach you how to achieve the different styles desired by the client by working through a range of shapes.

From no.2 to a Skin fade, we cover every aspect of clipper work. Clippers, foils and mini-trimmers are covered in detail during the course.

Sectioning is the key to setting you aside from the rest. These simple tweaks to the way you are dividing the hair will make you a master barber in no time.

We will cover every scissor technique from club cutting to scissor over comb, giving your haircuts that stand out edge and a texture that is like no other.

Usually, a passed by art, this is one of the most important steps in a gentleman’s haircut. Making every client leave feeling a million dollars is the perfect secret to gaining a customer for life.
