This program has been designed to tackle the issues that we encounter as experienced barbers and stylists. As develop through our career we no doubt become good at making haircuts look amazing. But the way in which we approach haircuts is often through experience rather than understanding. This can lead to frustration in our consistency, timeliness and even in our ability to relay information effectively to team mates or staff members.


At MENSPIRE we believe they’re are only 4 core areas to hair that we must understand before we can truly master our craft and become confident in every haircut that walks through our doors. Those 4 areas are – The Fundamentals of hair, Layering, Graduation and Fading.


This course will not only give you a thorough understanding of these 4 areas but we will develop your skillsets, techniques and overall end results. If this course sounds right to you then join the hundreds of other stylists that have taken this course from Ireland and all over the world.
