“I didn’t really cut anyone before other than my son. I was nervous when I came in, but at the end of the day, I am fully confident now. I really like the class. What I learned today I will take it and try to build on it. I recommend the class to everybody of all barber levels.”

- Terrence, previous student


"How to distinguish different cuts, and step by step on how to complete a standard fade. It was clear they had a lot of experience in the business and had been working on technique for years. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

- Maddy, previous student


"Francis was very helpful and knowledgeable and the setup of the day was relaxed, while very well structured and extremely informative."
Amberly, previous student


“Starting 4 months ago with no knowledge about barbering, I enrolled in the online course then took a 2-day one-on-one class with master barber. Now I work as an apprentice in a small barbershop. Both courses are amazing. Educators are super talented with 20 years of experience cutting clients and celebrities. If you are looking for a barber course, this is the best!” -
Jake, previous student
