Testimonials


“Working in small groups really benefitted me and I feel like I gained so much experience being involved on the shop floor.”

Harry Charalambous
I've enjoyed my time at Strap and Scraper London Academy. Working in small groups really benefitted me and I feel like I gained so much experience being involved on the shop floor. I have really got a massive insight into how the industry works. I looked around several academies before joining Strap and Scraper and am so happy I found them. It has been one of the best decisions I ever made and I already have a job lined up for when I finish. Papi is very patient and made learning super easy for me. The atmosphere of the academy is amazing and I am truly going to miss the place but at the same time cannot wait to crack on and showcase my skills. It is an added bonus that the academy is in such a thriving area. Thank you for everything, its been an incredible journey. I cannot recommend Strap and Scraper enough.

"Now, after only just completing the course, I have landed my first job!"

Andrew Kyprianou
Papi is an amazing tutor, I have gone from zero to hero in 10 weeks! Now, after only just completing the course, I have landed my first job! I owe that to Papi and his team. Excellent tutor, very passionate and informative with high attention to detail.

The course covers every aspect of barbering, from modern day fading techniques to advanced scissor skills, incorporating old and new school practices. The biggest benefit to learning at S&S are the class sizes. There's a maximum of only 3 to a class which was a perfect way to learn in small numbers. You also have the opportunity to watch the guys upstairs on the shop floor and there are demos of other barbers in the industry, coming in to share their knowledge.

I couldn't recommend this place enough. If you want to be a barber then you better come to Strap and Scraper! Feel free to send me an email andrewkyp89@gmail.com to ask any questions about the academy and my experience here as a student.

"They make sure that every student gets all the individual attention needed to learn everything they need to start their career and make it in the competitive world of barbering."

Andreas Morland

I came from Norway to do the the 10 week NVQ level 2 in barbering intensive course with Strap And Scraper London Academy in the autumn of 2017, and I could not be more happy with the training provided. I got in touch with a few other academies when researching where I wanted to start my new career as a barber, but when I found Strap and Scraper, saw the amazing reviews online and got in touch and talked a bit with Papi, there was no doubt that this was the place where I wanted to train. The academy is in the basement of his barbershop, something I’ve found to be a big advantage, as you don’t just learn to cut hair, but you also get a feel for how it is to be in an actual barbershop, an invaluable experience for when you’re going to start your first job as a barber.

Papi is an amazing teacher, and a true premium barber, and he makes absolutely sure that every student gets all the individual attention needed to learn everything they need to start their career and make it in the competitive world of barbering. Not only will you learn in detail and get a deep understanding of the techniques and methods of cutting hair, but also how to do a good, strong consultation as well as every other aspect of dealing with the client from when they first walk through the door and up until they leave, making sure that every client leaves looking good and feeling good.

I started my first barbering job 3 days after completing the course, confident that I had the tools and knowledge I needed to start my new career.I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone who wants to learn the craft of barbering. If you’re still in doubt after reading this, or have any other questions regarding the Academy or my time here, please do not hesitate to contact me amorland93@gmail.com and I’ll be more than happy to answer any and all questions.
