Starting your barbering career can be a tough decision – who to learn from, how to fund it, is there a guaranteed job at the end? MENSPIRE education is now happy to announce our very first beginners programme – ‘Principles of Education.

With a world of experience within our team, our educators are driven to fulfill your potential and give you the tools and techniques you need to sustain an enjoyable and financially dependent career.

This 15 week program has been carefully designed with a 4 day week in order to encourage our students to reach their potential without over powering them with information. Instead they are advised to integrate 1 day a week in a barbershop in order to cultivate the ‘barber life’ experience into their study term.

Like NO other, MENSPIRE’ Academy has seen professional barbering and hairdressing students visit us to increase their skill set. Our educators have travelled the world delivering our philosophy to crowds of 100’s. Today we present our principles of education to a brand new beginners course as we team up with the well respected Mens Hairdressing Federation (MHFED) who will be joining forces with us to ensure learners receive the best possible start to an industry full of joy, creativity and future proof stability.

With our small teacher to student ratio, our beginner course is set to provide you with the right knowledge and experience to build you into a competent barber ready for salon life after 15 weeks of our intimate training.

In a world where HAIR always grows, you will always have a job on your hands! Are you READY to be lead by the worlds leading experts in mens hairdressing education?
