The Academy

After 25 years in the industry, 16 as an educator, Sid Sottung has fulfilled a lifelong ambition by opening his very own academy.

Having travelled the globe educating for Vidal Sassoon & a host of other leading industry names, Sid opened the doors of the Sid Sottung Academy in February 2014. Our academy offers the rare opportunity to study directly under the tutorage of an internationally recognised educator.

“Brilliant academy. I went for the advanced barber course and learned a lot. Sid’s way of teaching was easy to understand and he’s an overall great guy with a lot of knowledge about every aspect of the barbering world. Definitely would recommend.”

– Andreas Ioannou

First class. Josh was absolutely excellent!  Very knowledgable, paid attention to detail and was very helpful. Informative and enjoyable. Full marks.

– Jim Butler

“Wonderful course taken by some great, knowledgable people. I met new friends and enjoyed every second. It was intense and stimulating, with plenty of live models walking through the door. From beginners to refreshers, I recommend Sid – not only for his knowledge and teaching but for his personal approach and patience.”

– Ryan Hardy

“Had an amazing time doing the 2 day wet shave course. Josh is a brilliant teacher, explains in detail and is very thorough going through everything with you. I left the course feeling comfortable and confident in myself. I will 100% be returning to do more courses here. I would recommend to all my barber friends.”
