Team North in training with the Great British Barbering Academy

On Sunday 3rd February, Team North gathered at the salon for a full day of training with educator, James Kirton, from the Great British Barbering Academy.

James Kirton from the Great British Barbering Academy providing a masterclass on all the latest barbering techniques to new Team North member, Joe.

The Great British Barbering Academy team of educators have hundreds of years of experience, countless awards and a plethora of successful barber shops under their aprons, and are some of the most in demand barbers in the country.

Team North taking it all in, James demonstrates all the latest barbering techniques.

James delivered an advanced course on fades and blades and taught us everything we needed to know on creating some of the most sought-after and fashionable hairstyles and beards in the barbering industry. Foil fading, drop fading, razor fading, texturing, beard trimming, beard shaping and beard knowledge – you name it, we were given a masterclass in all the latest barbering techniques.

The entire team were keen to learn everything they could from James.

Our two new recruits to Team North were also in attendance – we’ll be announcing their arrival very soon! The entire team were totally inspired by this intensive training day and gained valuable knowledge on all the latest techniques.

You’re never to old to learn, James keeping an eye on Richard practising the new barbering techniques.

We would like to say a huge thank you to our models who gave up their free time on Sunday for us to practice on.

We can’t wait to put these skills into practice so if you’re looking for the latest cutting edge fashionable hair style, or super shaped beard, contact the team now to arrange your appointment. As always, a warm friendly welcome and free freshly ground coffee awaits you.
