BARBERING COURSES & TRAINING

Train to be a barber in our courses.

Our training philosophy is revolutionising the barbering and male hairdressing industry. With heavy practical training under the guidance of pro barbers, we are developing extremely strong barbers who graduate into jobs at some of London’s premier barber shops and salons.

London School of Barbering uses a hands-on approach to develop the potential of barbers. Each student is provided an unrivalled amount of real models for practice (up to 150 models on its NVQ courses), which delivers better results in a shorter period of time. Simply put, the more haircuts and shaves that you do, the better you get. We also have our expert barber trainers provide you support with each cut and shave, so you get constant feedback to improve.

Our barber courses and wet shave courses help you build a foundational knowledge of barbering, deconstruct each step, refine your technique and improve your cutting speed. We train at an advanced level well-above the normal NVQ standard.

We are experts at training complete beginners, career-switchers, and advanced stylists.

Daytime Courses run Monday to Friday from 10.30am – 5.30pm.
Evening Courses run Monday & Tuesday from 6.00pm – 9.00pm.

WE ONLY TEACH ONE THING: BARBERING

(BEST IN THE INDUSTRY)

Dan-Pal-Mal“I have been in the barbering industry for a long time and I have never seen such a buzz of excitement as when I visited the London School of Barbering (LSB)… I believe that anyone looking to get an introduction into barbering should talk to the LSB team, they are without doubt the best barbering school in the industry today.”

 

Daniel Davies, General Manager of Pall Mall Barbers

“I employed two barbers from the course, and even though I was a little nervous at the beginning employing barbers with little experience those fears were soon put to rest. I have never seen a course that offers so much vigilant training, training in all important areas in barbering, and dedicated to giving solid fundamental training to anyone who wants a change in career.”

Ben Hardwick, Manager of Pure Barberism
