This course is ideal for individuals who have some experience cutting men’s hair and wish to become a qualified barber in order to refine their abilities and advance the looks that they can create. The course is also a great stepping stone for anyone wanting to take the Lazarou masters in barbering NVQ3 course but has not already taken the Lazarou beginner NVQ2 course.


Lazarou qualifies many barbers every year. Our results-driven training approach is proven and entirely hands-on practical training. This means you won’t be spending all your time in books studying theory.

Our pro educators will be at your side at all times to supervise, build confidence, progress your skill level and deliver exceptional results. Classes are between 6 to 9 students, with students of all ages and both genders.


Course Structure:

Over the course we will take you through our scissor fundamentals including sectioning, round layers and square layers. Next, we focus on clipper work and fading including our standard graduated clipper cut and then progressing onto our zero-fading system. This course does not cover foil fading.

We use a practical learning approach in our barbershop academy, meaning that you will practice each technique on real clients provided to you by us. With each cut you will have a pro trainer at your side giving direct feedback and support. You will also be provided educator demonstrations to break down our methods into easily learnable steps.


By the end of the course you will be confident and experienced after completing up to 60 real live haircuts (depending on student speed), under the support of exceptional barber trainers. We provide students all clients which means that you spend your time focused on developing your skill.

To supplement your academy training, we will provide you free access to proprietary Lazarou step-by-step videos.


Full Time: 3 weeks, specific dates TBA. For more information email
