Advanced Barber Class

This past week I had the pleasure of teaching an Advanced Barber Class to Jim from Denver, Colorado. Jim flew all the way across the country to Albany, New York to further his barbering education. He graduated from barber school 6 months ago and is committed to continuing his education to be the very best barber he can be. Advanced Barber Class

Jim spent two days with me at Gregory’s Barbershop. On the first day the shop was closed and we worked one on one with mannequins. We covered a variety of topics and techniques. We started out with the basics. We worked on posture, body positioning, and how to hold the barbering tools properly. Next up were the basic men’s hair cutting techniques: scissor over fingers, scissor over comb, and clipper over comb. These are the building blocks of men’s hair cutting. After the basics we jumped right in to the haircuts that are popular today. We worked on longer men’s layer cuts, pompadours, and shorter clipper cuts. To complete day one Jim observed me on a few live haircuts. I brought in the most difficult fades I could find to demonstrate the proper fading techniques.

On day two Jim got to observe a day live haircuts at the barbershop while we were open as well as experience a relaxing shave and a haircut as a customer. He was able to watch all 8 barbers work and ask questions. This was a great day as he was able to observe all different types of hairstyles on a wide variety of age groups. I was really impressed with the amount of notes Jim took. He made sure he took advantage of all of the education he received and made sure he brought it all home with him.

I would like to congratulate Jim on his hard work and dedication to his new career in barbering!
