The course uses our unique hands-on approach to training – you will complete all haircuts on clients provided by the academy. With each service 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 master the core LSB way of cutting hair including graduated cuts, short skin fades and creative cuts.

LSB qualifies over 500 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.

Proven training approach providing hands-on practical training.

We will push you creatively to think outside the box on how to combine different skills and techniques to produce a unique style that is personal to you as a men’s stylist. You will use advanced clipper, fading and scissor techniques.
We will teach you to produce a fantastic haircut in an industry standard time through use of time saving techniques and better understanding of how to structure a haircut from start to finish.
We will teach you the art of grooming facial hair, whether a full-grown beard or a full-face shave. You will understand all the required steps and abide by the current hygiene standards.
We will teach you proper etiquette to make your service more than just a haircut, so that you can maximise your client retention.
At the end of your course you will present a fully styled model*. We will help you with the preparation to build a theme, determine suitable clothing to style with, and of course match the haircut to the theme. This is great preparation for real stage work.

By the end of the course you will be confident after completing up to 60 real live haircuts. We provide students all clients which means that you spend your time focused on developing your skill.
