I did the foundation barbeing course. The greatest strengths of this course were that we did so many live models with all different types. I have been on several courses over the years of all types and this was the best for learning and course content. Darren was a very good instuctor.

“After working in salon and not progressing I decided to take matters into my own hands and pay for my own fast track training.  Now I’m a qualified Barber with experience and have my own mobile business and don’t rely on an employer to give me a career.  I cant recommend LHI enough.”
