Male grooming and barbering is becoming more popular and approximately a quarter of all customers in hair salons across the UK are men.

Along with ever changing fashions, the industry is growing and there are literally hundreds of salons across Lincolnshire, and that doesn’t even count Barbers, Mobile Hairdressers or Spas.

Everyone needs a good Hairdresser, and we can give you the expert training you need to have a constant list of recommendations and referrals.

Units to be covered will include shampooing, conditioning and treating hair and scalp, cutting hair using barbering techniques, cutting facial hair to shape as well as colouring.
