Men’s Hairdressing in the UK is huge! Year on year the growth in this area of the market has been significant. However, the training for men’s hairdressing has not kept up with this increase in demand. In fact most of the training courses on offer exclusively cover ladies hairdressing and totally disregard the men, whilst others just offer token training. In fact many young hairdressers are qualifying at NVQ Level 2 without having done any training at all in men’s hairdressing! This is obviously not good for the hairdresser, the salon and of course the male client.

Nicky Oliver believes it is time to take men’s hairdressing training much more seriously and give it the professionalism that this major area of the hairdressing market deserves.For this reason he has introduced a Level 2 Barbering Course, which 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.

The course covers:
Health and Safety
Advising and consulting with clients
Shampoo and conditioning
Basic barbering techniques
Cutting facial hair to shape
Drying and finishing
Promoting services/products to clients 

The course will equip students with more than barbering and hairdressing skills. It will increase their confidence and improve their knowledge, skills and techniques. The course is delivered to small groups working at the pace of each individual, ensuring that all their needs are met. Come and join us to learn more about this growing area of the business.
