This course is ideal for individuals who have some experience cutting men’s hair, but they wish to refine their abilities and advance the looks that they can create while also earning an NVQ 2 Diploma in Barbering qualification.

Over the course we will take you through our scissor fundamentals in cutting longer hair, including sectioning, round layers, and square layers. Next we focus on clipper work and fading. We begin by showing you our standard graduated clipper cut. Thereafter we progress into teaching you our zero-fading system, helping you deconstruct each step.

As you learn each technique, we then provide you clients to practice these cuts on. With each cut you will have our pro trainer at your side giving direct feedback and support. You also will be provided educator demonstrations to break down our methods into easily learnable steps.

Throughout the course we will assess you on all haircuts. You will achieve through assessment 2 different qualifications on the course: the first is the ITEC Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Barbering, and the second is the LSB Diploma in Barbering Level 2 certificate.


We are closed UK bank holiday Mondays and are open on Good Friday. We are also closed for the week between Christmas and New Years, and this week is added back onto all course end dates to ensure that no training is missed.

I live overseas. Can I take your course?

Yes all foreigners are welcome to take our courses. The course is taught in English, so it is best that you have a basic understanding of spoken and written English.

How many students are there per group?

We limit each class size to 4 to 6 students. This ensures that you have lots of 1-on-1 support from the trainers.

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.
