I came from Norway to do the the 10 week NVQ level 2 in Barbering intensive course with Strap And Scraper London barber 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 London barber academy, 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. This is truly a skill that can put you in a stronger position in the barbering world, as this is how you build the client comfort and relations that together with good barbering will make clients chose you as their regular barber, and keep coming back.
There really isn’t enough I could say about Papi and Strap And Scraper London barber academy. But trust me when I say that training here is the best thing I’ve ever done, and if I were to chose again I am 100% sure that I would make the same choice and go for Strap And Scraper London barber academy.
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 and I’ll be more than happy to answer any and all questions.
