“Barbering had been on my radar for a while, but it was my mother who encouraged me to come along to SERC when she saw something about the course on Facebook. I attended an open day and after meeting the tutors I decided to apply.”
“There was a lot of learning on the course – it was intensive, but good fun. I suppose I thought I was going to learn just to cut hair, but there is so much more to it, and by the time you move up from Level 2 to Level 3, you cover colour, design and cutthroat shaving.. There was a lot of practice at home - I like to think I have Father’s Day sorted!"
“At the minute I am building up my clientele and gaining more experience. I would love to enter some barbering competitions and think I would enjoy the challenge of cutting on stage to an audience. I have also been thinking about teaching and, perhaps one day, owning my own salon."
“I would recommend coming to SERC. The tutors were very supportive and kept us on track for deadlines and building up our portfolios.”
