Courses booked just prior to their start will have fees due within 3 business days.



Duration: 1 week. Monday to Friday 10:30 – 17:00

This hands-on course is tailor made for persons wishing to learn or advance their clipper work and fading abilities by training the LSB way. It is also ideal as a refresher before a trade test or to help you get back into the game after some time away.

We provide the following that no one else can:

  • Training in a real barbershop setting on up to 20 real clients — multiple times more than any other provider.
  • Free access to the LSB Barber Jobs platform where over 1000 barbershops recruit LSB graduates.
  • Lifetime 10% Discount on all barbering equipment purchased from our partner Coolblades.

LSB qualifies over 800 barbers every year. Our results-driven training approach is PROVEN and entirely hands-on practical training. This means you won’t be spending all your time in books studying theory.

Our pro educators will be at your side at all times to supervise, build confidence, progress your skill level and deliver exceptional results. Classes are between 6 to 9 students, with students of all ages and both genders.

Your tutor will assess your level and cover the following areas:

  • Clippering & Fading Techniques
  • Blending with Clipper over comb
  • Skin fades with zero grades
  • Cutting the top
  • Basic styling

With each cut 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 learn the core LSB way of cutting hair including graduated cuts and short skin fades.
