Student Stories – Anthoni
Anthoni wanted to become a barber to do something that makes people feel good about themselves. ‘I think barbering gives exactly that,’ he says. He previously worked in graphic design but now he loves being in the very busy barbershop environment trying different haircuts each day.
His favourite cut to do? Anthoni tells us, ‘I love to do an all round scissor cut because it has very soft touches to it and you’re left with more options to style at the end.’
When choosing a place to study, Anthoni chose to enrol with us because he felt that we really stand out among the other schools with the learning style. He exclaims, ‘It’s just one of the best schools – or even the best!’ Well, he definitely proved his stripes by being the winner of the graduate barber battle in his final week!
‘Winning the barber battle will definitely be one of the best memories of LSB,’ Anthoni says. What’s in store for the future? Whilst he loves London, especially Brick Lane, Anthoni hopes to be working in a barbershop in Indonesia once he graduates, and perhaps work abroad too.
‘The Nomad Barber is my main reason for getting into barbering, and the Streets Barber as well because he shows that this job has so much social aspect to it.’
