Intermediate Barbering Courses

For Barbers looking to take their skills to the next level, as well as those looking for more self-confidence, our intermediate barbering courses are the perfect solution.

At Alan d, we offer several intermediate barbering courses to help you build your confidence, expand your skillset, and prepare for the next phase of your career.

Our intermediate courses range in length from 1 to 10 days. They are an excellent option for new barbers looking to gain more skills and hands-on training. These courses are also for those returning to the barbering world after a break or who are looking to refresh their skillset.

These intermediate courses will enhance your barbering skills and ensure you feel confident behind the chair. Our fast-track barbering course – #ONTHEFLOOR – allows you to choose the focus of your course: fading, clipper & trimmer work and scissor-over-comb.

Finishing School – Barbering

Course Price: £125 inc VAT per day

This course is for new Barbers who want to build up speed and confidence by working on the Alan d models with as much or as little supervision as they require.

We’ve found that recent training has been erratic due to the Pandemic and the recovery period and many new Barbers suffered from a lack of models when they trained. By working in a no-pressure environment with the safety-net of a trainer if needed, you will gain the confidence you need to hit the Barbershop floor running.

Alan d have spent years delivering commercial  Barbering Education and their reputation extends to their huge and diverse model bank, the same clients that are walking into your Barbershop right now.

This course runs from Monday-Friday and you can book as many days as you need with as little as 1 week’s notice.

This course is ideal for newly trained Barbers, Freelance Barbers and those looking to improve their confidence.

On this two day course you will work through the Alan d Foundation Cut and Colour techniques and therefore we get to understand the level of your skill allowing us to create a bespoke targeted programme of improvement. We can focus solely on the techniques that you need to improve allowing you to quickly optimise your skills and your earning potential.

Once the initial two-day Skills-Scan is completed, Alan d will write a tailored programme to be agreed on and/or sent back your employer. Your training could then start immediately.

The initial Skills-Scan can also be run in your salon as a Workshop (price tbc).
