About Us

Strap and Scraper London Barber Academy is a VTCT approved barber training centre and the best place to begin your new career, or touch up on existing skills.

If you are interested in doing a course with us, please either call or email before coming to the premises so we can get a date in the diary to show you around. Turning up unannounced will result in us potentially having to reschedule your visit.

Why Train With Us?


Our educators have all been barbering for 10+ years. Head barber & educator Papi is a third generation barber meaning his grandad and father were/are in the barbering industry.


We are strong believers in quality over quantity which is why we only train a maximum of 4 students at any one time on our London barber courses.


We are one of the few barber schools in London to have a fully functioning barbershop joined to our academy, allowing students to have first-hand experience within a barbershop environment.

Amazing haircut, ive been to loads of places where they offer free cuts and this one was the best! I had a student named chris and he got my cut spot on. The teachers were always there to make sure everything was correct.Thank you so much!

First time here and was a great experienceI had a skin fade from a student called Charlie. He was working under the supervision of the manager, Papi.Great skin foil fade with attention to detail. Charlie did a great job and I was shocked to find out this was his first ever skin fade as it was that good. Credit to his tutor Papi who was always checking everything each step of the wayFor those looking for a barber training school I think this place was spot on. Clearly Papi is very experienced and has a good technique around teaching his studentsFor the haircut and beard shape up I give it a 10 out of 10Observations with regards to training methods / tactics /meeting student needs - again 10 out of 10

It was an absolute pleasure to be expertly trained by Papi at the Academy. Thanks to him I've now mastered the art of barbering and I feel like I've got a very bright future ahead of me. All the best to Papi and the boys in the future, definitely going to be popping back in for a catch up sometime soon!
