Barbering course covers all the basic principles and techniques of barbering.

Our hair cutting  module has been revised and developed so it will now consist of 1 week of barbering with scissors over comb and clipper techniques, sectioning, soldiers cuts, fading and more. Students will start learning on head blocks before moving onto real models.
