Student reviews
I came to the basic barbering course with zero knowledge and experience, at the end I was more than satisfied, the guys are doing everything possible so that after graduation you can get a job in a barbershop, I received an excellent knowledge base for further development, and now I work in a barbershop on the recommendation of the guys!
Randy Norton
A very good school for barbers, everything is accessible and understandable, each student works in his own mode, but at the same time following the program. An experienced and competent teacher, special thanks to him for the introduction to barbering course. Working, but at the same time relaxed atmosphere in the team.
Joe Nelson
Excellent masters work for you! I didn't pay attention to how crooked and sloppy some barbers cut, I thought what the difference was is general, but when I came to the professionals for the barber course, I realized that there is a difference! A quality haircut is important and visible! You are wonderful!
Jose Smith
I had already a sad experience with private barbering courses, the teachers didn't care about you, or only cared about certain "favourites", (in fact, those, who paid more, got attention). Here everyone is the same for teachers, everyone gets attention. They will even sit with you for hours, they will motivate you so that you achieve a result.
