WHAT DO OUR STUDENTS SAY

“My time at BSW was brilliant and really has changed me as a person, all the tutors are fantastic at what they do and they teach you so fast. I didn’t think I’d pick up as much as I did but I’m surprised with how much I learned within those 9 weeks and I’m happy I can now go and pursue my passion - I owe it to them”

“I studied here to gain my Level 2 Barbering Qualification and it was one of the best decisions I have made. At the beginning of 2022, I started this course with no background or knowledge in barbering and 9 weeks later left with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be a barber - I currently work at a shop in Swansea where I am continuing my journey as a barber. As for the course, you are taught by some of the best in the industry, there isn’t any hairstyle/haircut they can’t cut. As well as teaching the fundamentals, they also show you how you apply this to each individual and the intricacies of different hair types (afro, straight, wavy). During the course, you spend 8 of the 9 weeks hands-on cutting the client's hair every single day and at the end of the week, you receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses. Rhys, Ben & Alessandro are great lecturers! They are so supportive, knowledgable and have a great laugh. Overall it was a great experience and if you are thinking about studying here, you won’t regret it!”

“Joining BSW is the best decision I’ve made. I was 19 years old when I joined and was very unsure about what careers I wanted to move into and when I came across the academy and had a chat with Alessandro it was a no-brainer for me to sign up. All 3 Educators, Alessandro, Rhys & Ben are all amazing guys who boosted my confidence so much throughout the 9 weeks and made me find a career that I enjoy. If you’re debating whether you should join the course, I would say just take the plunge and go for it, its great value for money and you will not regret it. Since leaving the course I have now found myself a job cutting hair in a shop local to me so I can confirm the course is worthwhile if barbering is a career path you’re looking to take."

For fades, putting your placement line in the correct place will determine the success of your fade.  Putting a placement line too high may not give you enough space to fade or putting your placement line too low might make your fade too heavy.⁠
⁠
It is important you determine the type and style of fade your customer wants so you can pop your placement line in the right place ✂️⁠
