At the beginning of the 9-week course at Thomas Lloyd Barbering Academy I was a complete novice with no experience to speak of, the education I have received at the academy has been invaluable to me and something I will carry into the future. My aim was to leave the course feeling knowledgeable and capable in all areas of barbering—and with the help of Christian and Lloyd, I feel I have achieved these goals and then some.
The small group sizes, just 5 person per class, help in allowing a lot of 1-to-1 time, which has been incredibly valuable to me personally, and the shop is always busy so there are plenty of chances to practice a variety of haircuts and services on clients.
The course is quite intense, and Christian and Lloyd were able to teach us the skills that we needed whilst making the process fun. Christian was my tutor for the course and is an incredibly talented barber, but more importantly, was a very patient and encouraging teacher that was always willing to help. Both Christian and Lloyd are fantastic tutors with an extensive knowledge of the industry and have abundant passion and love for what they do, which really reflects in the way they teach.
I could not be happier with my decision to train at the academy and am shocked at how much I have learned in just 9 weeks. The training I have received here has given me the confidence to apply these skills in my work which I know is going to help further my career. I cannot recommend Thomas Lloyd Barbering Academy enough and would encourage anyone with any interest to sign up as soon as possible!
Lastly, I would like to extend my gratitude and say thank you to Chris and Lloyd— cheers guys!
