Wet shaving is an art form that has rapidly come back into fashion and is an increasingly important skill to have if you already are a professional barber or stylist, or are thinking about becoming a barber.

This hands-on course will get you cut throat wet shaving at a professional standard in 2 days. You will train in a group of 4 to 5 students. Our expert tutor will walk you through the steps of the traditional wet shave through demonstration and then provide guidance as you perform 4 to 6 real shaves and razor touch-ups on live client’s supplied by the school. By the end of the course you will have built your ability through repetition and be sufficient in cutthroat shaving at a professional standard.

You will earn an ITEC Level 3 Accreditation in Shaving Services, which is important for liability insurance requirements.

We provide the following that no one else can:

  • Training in a real barbershop setting on up to 6 real clients —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.

Highlights of our 2-day wet shaving course include the following:

  • Using a cutthroat razor
  • Facial massage techniques
  • Applying the right product to prepare the skin before shave
  • Using both hot and cold towels
  • Practicing on 4 to 6 real live clients, supplied by us

Course structure:

Day 1: You will learn the technique through demos and then will pair up to do real shaves under the support of our pro shaver.

Day 2: You will perform individual shaves. By the end of the course you will be sufficient in cutthroat shaving to provide the service at a professional standard.

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 English, or you are welcome to bring along a translator.

How much experience is required for the course?

You do not need to have any experience for this course. We teach you from scratch how to perform the wet shave, and then get you practicing on real live clients.

Can I take this course if I am not a barber?

Yes you certainly can. In fact about 2 out of 4 students on the course are not barbers. We will take you through all the steps of the shave and have you giving great shaves by the end of the course.

Do I need to bring anything for the course?

A full shave kit is provided to the student for use on the course and to keep after the course. Please bring tapering clippers and mini trimmers if you have them to complete some beard trims.

Will I really be job ready after the course?

Yes you will be able to shave well enough to perform the shave as a paid service at a salon. Of course with more experience comes more confidence, so keep getting more shaves under your belt after our course!

How many students are there per group?

We limit each class size to 4 to 5 students. This ensures that you have lots of 1-on-1 support from the trainers and gain the expertise that makes you a great shaver for your salon.
