Barbering course Sat 30th March 2021, £865

We are very lucky to have tutors coming in to teach Barbering who are not only barbers in the outside world but also work as Barbers in the Film TV world.
Module Skills

  • Becoming comfortable with Clipper Handling.
  • Understanding Period Styling.
  • Scissor over comb.
  • General male grooming

I really was so nervous about the Barbering week at the Makeup Academy; but I need have been! By the end of the week I was cutting a clipping men’s hair, with confidence. When I look back I still find it hard to believe. The Academy and Tony just gave me confidence to believe in myself and to do it.”
