Wet Shaving Course


2 Days



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 Educators will provide support and guidance as you become more familiar with handling a straight razor.

"My colleague and I Tom had the best time ever on the wet shave course. The team are amazing! Not just awesome at what they do and inspiring but also great people. Never have I been given so much information and attention to detail on a course. So much hard work goes into the academy and you leave with so much confidence. I would recommend to everyone and I will be going back. Thank you so much!"
