Introduction to barbering

Introduction to barbering (non-NVQ course)

Using key elements and skills from the full NVQ courses, our Introduction to Barbering course has been specially created to provide the basic skills for barbering, to the extent that you can complete basic services competently. This course is ideally suited to people who have no experience in barbering and want to train as a barber within a short time, don’t require an NVQ and wish to offer just basic barbering, perhaps just for friends and family. Upon completion you would receive a LAFHAB Certificate, and you may then wish to consider undertaking a full NVQ at a later date.
