This master’s course is our most advanced course. It is designed to bring barbers and stylists to the senior level. The main topics covered on the course include cutthroat wet shaving, advanced men’s haircuts and styles, and applying scalp treatments for men.
The course uses our unique hands-on approach to training – you will complete all haircuts on clients provided by the academy. With each service you will have our pro trainer at your side giving direct feedback and support. We will also use trainer demonstrations to break down advanced cutting methods so that you master the core LSB way of cutting hair including graduated cuts, short skin fades and creative cuts.
The course covers the following advanced aspects of barbering:
What equipment do I need to bring?
You will need professional barbering equipment including: tapering clippers, trimming clippers, scissors, combs, neck brush, hair dryer and water spray.
I have never cut hair, can I take this course?
You must currently be cutting hair as a barber or hairdresser in a busy shop environment in order to enrol. Individuals with zero experience should take our beginner diploma course:
What are the license requirements to legally work in London as a barber? Do my hours from the U.S. transfer?
Each state has its own process to recognise hours earned overseas. We’ve had a strong track record of Americans training with us and receiving reciprocity for their hours. The process typically entails the learner completing a form for their state board after training with LSB, and LSB provides a letter of reference confirming their hours and modules covered.
Very helpful with cutting skills techniques.
Has improved my knowledge in barbering.
Thank you so much.
The experience was incredible.
I learned so much from the incredibly knowledgable tutors. They were so kind and helpful.
I would 100% recommend anyone I know to do the course.
Pan’s teaching and man management were first class.
I have learnt new techniques whilst improving existing techniques.
Enjoyed it, was intense towards the end but Pan’s teaching and personality really made the course enjoyable and it was such a good feeling of learning a technique in such a relaxed manner.
My haircuts have improved majorly since the 9 week course.
Coming straight from level 2, I knew what to expect, once again the teaching was amazing.
Special shoutout to Pan for answering every question I had and teaching me new techniques. Cheers!
Teachers are passionate about what they do which rubs off on you. They explain everything in depth which makes your learning experience so easy.
You graduate from the course confident in the knowledge that you will be on your way to a great career.
Well done guys.
I came from Brazil to take this course.
It was an amazing experience for me. I learned a lot of new techniques.
The instructor helped me with the difficulty if the language in all the time.
I’m grateful for this great experience!!
Both NVQ2 and the NVQ3 were worth coming here from the USA.
The instructors were great, I’m certain . I tested their patience, as their perpetual problem child. But I feel I’ve learned a lot and understand more than I initially started with, and that is what I need.
In time I will improve more and I know what the standards should be thanks to your course.
Pav, Henry, Pan and Michael are great instructors, thank you for your time and patience with me…
The course has given me huge confidence it has equally improved both my scissor work, and clipper work. The standard of my haircuts is now so much higher I feel confident in entering a barber shop for paid work.
Henry and Jordan’s skill set is amazing and has enabled me to deliver a great standard.
Truly outstanding have loved every minute of my time here at LSB, given me confidence. Which others outside have noticed. Kind of disappointed its come to an end.
Amazing experience, thoroughly enjoyed my time here whilst improving! Been pushed out of my comfort zone which has furthered my skill set massively all thanks to Henry and Pav.
I’ve gone from not cutting hair for a year, back into feeling it again. You all have pushed me, been honest, truthful and helped build my confidence up into feeling like I can go out there and find myself a job now. You’ve helped me build my confidence from rock bottom, back up to starting to believe in myself again. Trust me this is now the start of my new career! Thank you all so very much. I’ll keep in touch.
The course was absolutely amazing. I learned so much, pushed and excelled skills and have got myself into an even better job. Would recommend to everyone. Thanks for everything! x
I have had an amazing weeks learning new skills and redefining old ones. I enjoyed breaking down hair cuts and breaking down some ‘bad hair dresser habits’. I also liked the fun welcome vibe the educators gave!
Thanks boys its been GREAT!
Being my second time back I was more than impressed by the standard of teaching and how enjoyable Henry and the others made my time here, it was like coming home.
It’s very fun! and very good skills, Im Japanese, but it was fun.
Thank you very much!
It was the best experience in the barber business of my life. Thank you all for everything. I learned a lot. You gave me everything I needed to be a better barber.
Really loved my course here, I didn’t know what to expect when I booked but was than happy with the fun informal way of learning. I now have much more confidence and a better knowledge of how to approach hair cuts.
Incredible. I have learnt so much in these 3 weeks. The educators, I couldn’t ask for more. I have 100% become a better barber and my knowledge of hair has certainly improved too. I have enjoyed every minute of it and would definitely recommend anyone who is wanting to become a barber, to go on this course at LSB. Every aspect of haircutting I have been taught I really cant wait to use once I get back working in the shop. Not only have I learnt so much I have had so much fun doing so. I can’t thank the LSB team enough, Before coming here my scissor skills was something I needed to improve and I am finishing the course with being comfortable at using scissors in the correct way and being a better barber at using them. Also coming away being able to give a traditional cut throat shave, I am super happy about and can’t wait to give it a go in the shop and adding it to my service. A big thank you to everyone at London School of Barbering.
