I went on a short Barbering course with Mike Taylor and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the course I felt I had gained confidence and picked up techniques much quicker than I expected I liked the fact that Mike could work out what level I was on therefore I was not held back I could work at my own pace and any questions I had I got the answers straight away I would highly recommend anyone who is considering taking up Barbering to join Mike Taylor’s Barbering course he has helped in so many ways and been so helpful he has always gone the extra mile for his students a wonderful teacher trainer I highly recommend Mike Taylor.

After being out of the barber trade for a few years I decided on the Hairdresser to Barber course to refresh my skills. It’s an excellent course and a highly enjoyable 3 days. Hannah and Mike are excellent trainers with a huge breadth of knowledge. Combining theory and practical training in a working Barber shop rather than a classroom is excellent for getting a feel for the barbering environment.

Hannah and Mike have designed a very useful course teaching hairdressers the fundamentals of barbering. Clipper skills are the main focus, and we were introduced to recommended tools and how to use and take care of them. The real barbershop setting for the course was a useful introduction to the environment and set-up of this type of business. Having live models for haircuts rather than mannequin heads (as has happened on other barbering courses) meant that we could be guided through issues like tricky hairlines, bumps/scars, outlining and beard shaping. Overall, Hannah and Mike were friendly and knowledgeable instructors, and the time in Poole was well worth it. I’ve since made a successful move into barbering and am enjoying it a lot.

I recently completed a One Day Introduction to Barbering with Mike Taylor. The course provided me with a fantastic opportunity to update and refresh my cutting skills, under Mike’s guidance and expertise. Having discussed my previous Hairdressing experience, and what I hoped to achieve from the course, Mike very kindly adapted the tuition to suit my particular requirements. Progressing from model heads to clients, I was able to practice a variety of different cutting techniques, with Mike on hand, to offer advice, and guide me confidently through the day. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day in the salon, with Mike and his team. And will certainly be recommending the course, to my other Make-up Artists, looking to refresh and improve their Barbering skills”. Thanks so much again.
