This course is ideal for individuals who have some experience cutting men’s hair and wish to become an LSB Qualified Barber in order to refine their abilities and advance the looks that they can create. The course is also a great stepping stone for persons wanting to take the LSB Masters in Barbering NVQ3 course but have not already taken an LSB Beginner NVQ2 course.

Over the course we will take you through our scissor fundamentals including sectioning, round layers and square layers. Next we focus on clipper work and fading including our standard graduated clipper cut and then progressing onto our zero-fading system. This course does not cover foil fading.

QUALIFICATION

We use a practical learning approach in our barbershop academy, meaning that you will practice each technique on real clients provided to you by us. With each cut you will have a 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 in order to achieve 2 different qualifications: the first is the VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Barbering, and the second is the LSB Diploma in Barbering Level 2 certificate.

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.

By the end of the course you will be confident and experienced after completing up to 60 real live haircuts (depending on student speed), under the support of exceptional barber trainers. We provide students all clients which means that you spend your time focused on developing your skill.

You also will provided free access to proprietary LSB step-by-step videos to supplement your academy training.

FAQs
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 masters course for beginners: https://www.londonschoolofbarbering.com/barbering-courses-and-training/masters-barbering-cosmetologists-nvq2-nvq3/

As this course is for experienced persons, evidence of your experience or qualifications will be requested upon booking. This can be a letter from your salon stating where you work and how long for, a CV, or prior hairdressing or barbering qualifications.

Can you recommended any hotels?

If seeking accommodation then please consider the London Central City Travelodge at £150 per night which is near the Academy:
https://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/340/London-Central-City-Road-hotel

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.
