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.

Before applying why not perform a Soft Search Loan Eligibility check:
A soft–search is a type of credit search where a lender can get an idea of whether you’re eligible for borrowing by doing a soft search of your credit report. It doesn’t leave a mark like a ‘hard search‘ does.
The calculators use what’s known as ‘soft’ searches on your credit file – you’ll see the search if you check your file, but lenders won’t. To do this companies work with HD Decisions, a data company owned by Experian. For the ‘soft’ search they first have to find your details at the credit bureau (Experian).
To apply please select the “apply for finance of the full amount” option when booking your course on our website.
