Introduction

Get an insight into the technical skills needed to succeed in men's barbering. This course will introduce you to the basics of cutting men's hair and by the end you'll be able to create different hair styles using scissors and clippers.

You'll be taught in our industry-standard working salon and gain practical experience in the following areas:

  • Cutting men's hair into a one-length or layered style

  • Using clippers

  • Styling men's hair

  • Selecting and using finishing products to complement your look.

Materials

There is a fee to cover the cost of a professional hairdressing and styling kit you'll need to complete the course, and an optional fee if you want to purchase clippers. As the course is run in our working salon, you'll need to wear smart black clothing (no trainers or jeans) as part of the salon uniform.

Assessment

There is no coursework or exams during the course, but you'll be expected to complete an informal practical assessment at the end of the programme.

Next Steps

This course is a great starting point if you want to work as a barber, run your own barbering business or go onto further training in this area. Ask your tutor about the other courses we run.
