Creative Director Michael Kontos and Lead Educator Henry Stevens from the London School of Barbering team who travelled to Mumbai in India to deliver a unique clipper and fades workshop over 4 days, in their own words told us how they were treated like royalty and were made to feel very special throughout their time there, all courtesy of International Skills Academy.
In total, thirty two high calibre hairdressers and barbers working in India attended our seminar in conjunction with the International Skills Academy, in order to advance their clipper work and fading abilities to take their cutting skills to the next level. They were enlightened by the expertise that Michael and Henry passed on to them during the workshop, by teaching them the LSB fundamentals of cutting hair and relaying our high standards of barbering. The goal of the workshop was to create a range of hairstyles using clippers and refining fading with improvement in speed.
We ran the 2 day clipper and fades workshops with 2 groups of hairdressers and barbers over 4 days in the stunning Amateur Gallery (TAG) gallery which features an impressive art and design space. This superb venue added to the great organisation and success of the workshop, not to mention the incredible choice of models that were provided each day. The tasty gourmet style lunch that was served up every day by celebrity chef Ranveer Brar was a real lip smacking treat for both Michael, Henry and the students.
Students were inspired and engrossed in the barbering demonstrations that both Michael and Henry conducted in the morning. In the afternoon, the students had the opportunity to put into practice what they had seen in the precise demonstrations by cutting two models hair each. Of course, Michael and Henry were on hand to assist with feedback and keeping a watchful eye over all students.
Plenty of happy and chuffed faces all around when each student received their London School of Barbering Clipper and Fading Certificate. It was an amazing opportunity to bring and share our incomparable barbering expertise to hair professionals in Mumbai, India.
Feast your eyes on some of the hot, razor sharp finished cuts that Michael and Henry cut during the barbering workshop, all to demonstrate the precise level of clipper and fading skill and knowledge required to execute top quality haircuts for happy clients and excellent client retention.
