  • Stage 2 – Transition haircuts from headblocks onto real live clients – focus on techniques such as scissor-over-comb, clipper work, fading, layering and texturising; teacher support with common mistakes and challenges. At this stage you will be assessed on your haircuts to be completed to standards sufficient to earn your NVQ Level 2 qualification.

The outcomes of this final stage will determine your final grade for your LSB Diploma in Barbering Level 2 certificate.

By the end of the course you will be confident and experienced after completing up to 100 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.

TESTIMONIALS
FAQs
Will I really be job ready after the course?

Yes you will be job ready upon course completion. Our training academies operate as full-fledged barbershops. All clients are real and you will have the support of our Educators to learn all the techniques and styles to deliver top standard haircuts.

We have a strong track record of our graduates going straight into jobs as barbers in barbershops, movie-sets, bands, etc.

Can you help with housing?

Certainly. Please send an email to [email protected] and request a list of recommended accommodation.

Can I get an NVQ diploma in barbering even though I'm not from the UK?

Yes you can. The NVQ Diploma can be awarded to people of all nationalities. The qualification is a competency-based award in the UK, and many non-UK countries recognise it.

We accept students from across the globe, as far as South America, Asia, Australia, Africa and North America. If you want to become a barber then we are happy to train you. The only requirement is that you speak enough english to understand our teachers.

How many haircuts will I do on the course?

You can expect to complete up to 100 haircuts during this course. We provide you all these clients. The key to becoming a good barber is practice, so we maximise the number of haircuts that you do.

Are you closed bank holidays?

We are closed on most UK bank holidays.

 

Can I defer my course start date?

Courses are non-cancellable and non-deferrable. All payments made are final and non-refundable.

Is there lots of theory on the course?

We provide top standard learning resources with our step by step videos and visual diagrams. You can review these resources from the comfort of home or on your smartphone.

We also have about 5 hours of learning modules which we will review and discuss at the academy during your training.

The rest of the training at the Academy is 100% practical, during which you will absorb the theory in a hands-on manner. The best way to learn the theory is to apply it while doing a haircut and interacting with the client.

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.
