Introduction: Theory and initial cutting on headblocks. Set your barbering career goals, learn about your tools and understanding shape. Learn cutting techniques on training headblocks and watch expert demos: deconstruct the steps of haircuts; completion of theoretical coursework and exams.
Transition haircuts from headblocks onto real live clients - focus on techniques such as basic guards work, scissor-over-comb, clipper work, fading, layering and texturising. Also work on facial hair and traditional wet shaving. Full teacher support with common mistakes and challenges.
Become proficient in haircuts, learn tricks of the trade, and personalise haircuts; teacher support with refining cutting techniques; focus on finishing and cutting speed. You will be assessed on the overall quality of your haircuts that must be passed to a BSW standard. You will undertake additional practice on advanced and unorthodox haircuts you would find inside a barbershop. You will also be trained on photography, content creation, online profile building and marketing yourself to prospective employers and barbershops.
For the daytime course, at the end of week 8, you will participate in a class competition where you will present your best haircut against peers and be rated. This will be judged by an industry-leading barber. This course doesn't award students an BSW qualification.
