Wet shaving has made a massive resurgence in recent years making it an essential skill for modern-day barbers. Our two-day wet shaving course will allow you to provide a high quality service for clients looking to indulge in a traditional cutthroat shave.
As they say, the best way to learn is by doing. From day one, students will develop skills and build confidence by performing wet shaves on clients provided by the academy. Our Academy Director will provide support and guidance as you become more familiar with handling a straight razor.
We believe there is more to a traditional wet shave than just removing the hair from the face of a gentleman. It is important to provide clients with a sense of occasion, taking an everyday chore and making it something exciting. Our course also covers how to properly care for your clients skin, ensuring you are able to offer a relaxing and luxurious experience.
Award winning shaving brand, The Bluebeards Revenge, proudly endorse our wet shaving course and you will be provided with their high quality products throughout.
Upon completion of our wet shaving course you will have reached the required standard to provide a high quality service to your clients.
