The growing popularity of men’s hairdressing has been significant. Although demand from clients, looking for the new and fashionable hairstyles, has increased, the quality of training has not kept up. In fact, most of the training courses in the market exclusively cover ladies hairdressing, totally disregarding men’s hair and relevant cutting techniques.

Nicky Oliver believes it is time to take men’s hairdressing training much more seriously, giving this major area of the hairdressing market the attention that it deserves.

Our Level 2 Barbering Course is aimed at anyone who wants to become a barber or wishes to add to their current hairdressing qualifications, making them an asset to any salon.
